May we extend a warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at our degree?  We have attempted to spread the information in easily digestible chunks over a number of pages.

Use the navigation bar on the left to navigate to the pages that interest you. Please note that our current masters students make use of the intranet for their course notes and communications so this website is really for interested outside parties.

We offer the Masters course in two ways: Dissertation only, and Coursework & Dissertation.  These can be taken by both full-time and part-time students.

The Department may, at its discretion, choose to cover the Course Work materials in 4 weekly blocks to accommodate students not residing in Cape Town or those who cannot attend the weekly sessions. Each block would be for 5 days, starting at until .

We suggest that all visitors first look at the About the Program page. Then, if you are a current honours student in the department or another Southern African university, may we suggest that you look at Why do a Masters? as well as the bursaries section first.  If you are graduating from another university, you may want to look at the Program Details and Program Requirements in more detail in order to get more familiar with the specifics of the South African educational system. You can get a better feel for the program by looking at some of the topics typically Typical Course Overview.

Applications for 2018 open in on 1 June. The Master's programme is currently coordinated by Prof. Michael Kyobe,
