Master's & doctoral degrees

What's new for 2021?

Please take note of the following changes that were introduced for students registering for a research master's or doctoral qualification for the first time in 2021. 

The submission of an article(s) was introduced for students registering for the first time in 2020. The word "article" has, however, been replaced by the word "manuscript" from 2021.

Research master's degree students

  • One manuscript, based on the student's research, must be submitted for publication to a recognised and accredited journal. Proof of the submission of the manuscript is a compulsory condition for the degree to be conferred.


Doctoral students

  • An oral defence (viva voce) has been added to the curriculum.
  • Two manuscripts, based on the student's research, must be submitted for publication to a recognised and accredited journal. Proof of the submission of the manuscripts is a compulsory condition for the degree to be conferred.
