The School has a limited pool of academic members of staff who can supervise research towards our research-based postgraduate degrees. Admission to the School for any of degrees depends on the availability of a supervisor from within the staff who is capable of and willing to supervise in the area of study.
Interested candidates are encouraged to look at the staff list to consider who might be able to provide appropriate supervision in the candidate’s particular area of interest.
Students are then advised to consult with the School PRIOR to submitting a formal application through the Student Enrolment Centre. You can send your enquiry to the School Postgraduate Degree Coordinator or the School Postgraduate Administrator.
The enquiry, which may mention which supervisor(s) the candidate has in mind, will be circulated to relevant members of staff. By way of enquiry, potential candidates should e-mail the following information with a covering e-mail text:
Only if the School deems the candidate ready and if it is able to identify a potential supervisor or co-supervisors, will the candidate be encouraged to proceed to the formal application process.
Once instructed to do so by the School, applicants must compile a formal application.
The School has limited supervisory capacity and therefore has to select its candidates carefully. Excellent academic transcripts at masters level (generally at least 70%) are a requirement. Research and writing experience, as well as a clear articulation of the area of research interest are an advantage. Students with a coursework masters may be required to register first for a masters by research.
