DHET accredited publications
Postgraduate students are required to submit (Masters)/ publish (Doctorate) an article in a DHET-accredited journal before they can graduate. The accredited journals are listed here. Please also see the HDC 1.8 form under Committees.
Thesis submission process
It is a requirement that postgraduate students submit a corrected version of their dissertation/ thesis to the library. This must be a hardbound copy and an electronic copy with signatories as outlined in the Thesis submission process form.
Faculty research coordinators/ Chairpersons/ Assistant deans
Postgraduate studies are coordinated in the faculties and research units by the faculty research coordinators (FRCs) or chairpersons or assistant deans. The CPGS liaises directly with the FRCs in respect of postgraduate study. They are therefore the first port of call for students in all matters relating to postgraduate studies.
