GUIDE ON SELECTING A SUPERVISOR

PROSPECTIVE MASTER’S AND PHD STUDENTS

Admission is subject to the availability of a suitable supervisor for the dissertation or thesis in a field where research is actively being done within the Department.

For more information, please make use of the following links:

  1. Research – select Research Focus Areas. The associated staff are listed underneath each of the research areas, with a list of experts at the bottom of the page.
  2. Select Our Researchers to acquaint yourself with possible supervisors. Click on the name of the researcher to view their recent publications. Please note that Extraordinary Professors are not available to act as supervisors. 

You may approach the supervisors by e-mail, enquiring about their availability and possible topics. Attach all relevant academic records, your CV and other documents that you feel are necessary and if possible make an appointment for a personal meeting. 
If any researcher confirms that he/she would like to be your supervisor, please include this information in your online application.
You do not need a confirmed supervisor in order to apply but it is a prerequisite for admission.The final decision for approval of the supervisor lies with the Head of the Department.
