Renewal of registration
As long as progress is satisfactory, renewal of the registration of a master’s student will be accepted for the second year of the study. Registration for a third and subsequent years will only take place when the Student Administration of the Faculty receives a written motivation which is supported by the relevant head of department and Postgraduate Studies Committee.
Subject to programme-specific requirements, the curriculum for the MAgric degree consists of the following:
- A dissertation;
- Attendance of the Department’s Research Methods module and
- Presentation of a research proposal during the first year of registration
- Further study in the major subject/s, augmented by ancillary modules prescribed by the Postgraduate Studies Committee, on the recommendation of the head of department. Such ancillary modules may be taken simultaneously with the major subject/s. Candidates in possession of the BScAgricHons degree may be exempted from additional ancillary modules.
- BAgricHons degree (or equivalent) or BInstAgrarHons degree (or equivalent) or relevant honours degree
Note: Additional modules may be required in order to reach the desired level of competency
