New Generation Universities “do different things” to span the main focus areas of teaching and learning, research and community service, under a broader, integrated focus of serving society and, more particularly, their immediate communities (Louw, 2008)
VUT offers postgraduate courses to those students who want intellectual cultivation, character growth and personal development on an unprecedented scale. Our Masters Degrees and Doctorate studies are available within the following faculties:
The students will not be alone in their endeavors as they will be assisted by both a professional supervisor and the faculty at large. With that support structure, postgraduate students may specialize within their field of study, or change into a field of study within which they have not served before. Ultimately the student will explore new academic boundaries by conducting new research, expanding on existing research, or conducting new methods of measurement and testing.
The minimum required time to complete the course will be one year and the maximum time will be 4 years for Masters and 5 years for Doctorate studies.
