Postgraduate Students Association

Onderstepoort Postgraduate Student Association

The Postgraduate Student Association (PGSA) is a vibrant community comprised of postgraduates from diverse nationalities and backgrounds, all pursuing their academic journeys at the Onderstepoort campus. We take immense pride in being the voice of postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows, advocating for their needs and interests while also offering support when challenges arise.


Here's a glimpse of what we do:


Advocacy: The PGSA serves as a vital link between postgraduates and the faculty, ensuring that your concerns and issues are effectively communicated. We are here to represent your interests and facilitate solutions should any difficulties arise during your academic journey.


Workshops and Training: We organize workshops and training sessions in collaboration with the faculty to enhance your postgraduate development. These opportunities are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary for academic success and personal growth.


Social and Community Engagement: Life at Onderstepoort is not just about academics; it's about creating a well-rounded experience. PGSA hosts social activities and community engagement programs to help you connect with your peers and make a positive impact on the community.


We are committed to ensuring that every postgraduate student feels welcome and supported in their new academic environment. We are more than happy to assist you in transitioning smoothly into your studies and life at Onderstepoort. It's also a great idea to let us know in advance about your arrival, so we can warmly welcome you to the faculty and provide a guided tour if needed.


Feel free to contact us at [email protected] for any inquiries or assistance you may need and follow us on social media for upcoming activities and events.


We're excited to have you as a part of our thriving community and look forward to supporting you throughout your postgraduate journey.
