University of Fort Hare Bisho Campus

University of Fort Hare Bisho Campus

Bhisho campus is equidistant between East London and Alice. It is located in the seat of the provincial government, and it has developed a reputation in public service related courses. It is a modern campus focusing on part time and distance courses including the innovative public service development. Strength is also present in courses in public administration and finance, and the well-rated Fort Hare Institute of Government (FHIG).

The Bhisho campus is also home to two major Fort Hare training projects, the Public Financial Services Agency (PFSA) providing a five year R100 million training programme in financial management and administration, and the Transversal Training Programme, providing a five year R60 million training programme in public administration and management. Both projects focus on provincial government staff and are closely linked to the public administration and finance courses provided on campus.

In 1990 the University of Fort Hare (UFH) built a second campus, situated in Bhisho and called it the Bhisho Campus. This campus is situated halfway between the East London Campus and the main Alice Campus.

Bhisho is a contemporary campus concentrating mainly on part time and distance courses and is involved with the ground breaking public service development, as well as public administration and finance and the Fort Hare Institute of Government (FHIG).
