Postgraduate study in our Department opens more doors for employment and makes it possible for students to pursue a passion for animal biology and management. For example, an Honours degree is the minimum requirement for accreditation as a practising natural scientist and to work as an environmental consultant in South Africa.

Our Department offers postgraduate programmes in Entomology, Wildlife Management, and Zoology at the levels of:

Bachelor of Science Honours

Master of Science (MSc)

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

For further information on the Bachelor of Science Honours, contact Prof. Christian Pirk or Prof. Adrian Shrader.

For general information on our MSc or PhD programmes, contact the Postgraduate Coordinator, Prof. Catherine Sole.

If you have an ARPPIS-DAAD PhD Scholarship through icipe and need help to link with a supervisor at UP, contact the ARPPIS Local Coordinator, Prof. Kerstin Krüger.
