General information - graduate learning camp

A Graduate Learning Camp will take place prior to the symposium on 17 and 18 July (also at the Future Africa Campus of UP), to expose and empower the next generation of young South African academics within the discipline of statistics. This Graduate Learning Camp is exclusively earmarked for postgraduate students enrolled in any statistics and data science postgraduate degree at a South African university, who does not have a PhD degree.

Please note that registration for the graduate learning camp is separate from registration for the symposium.

Registration for the graduate learning camp requires submission of a valid 2019 proof of registration for a postgraduate degree in statistics or data science at any South African university.
