Master’s and doctoral Student support

Master’s and doctoral candidates in CAS enjoy the support of dedicated supervisors and master's and doctoral coordinators. Our Office of Graduate Studies and Research provides support via myUnisa and by hosting workshops and colloquiums. Apart from the general tutorial material, master's and doctoral coordinators post various documents on myUnisa, including policies, procedures and templates to assist students.

The Master's and Doctoral Orientation Week and the Proposal Writing Retreat are annual events hosted by the College. Students enjoy the opportunity to sharpen their research skills by attending relevant workshops on academic writing skills, writing research proposals and library assistance, amongst others.

At master's and doctoral colloquium, master’s and doctoral students get the opportunity to present their proposals to a panel which makes suggestions, discusses any shortcomings and highlights positive aspects. All registered master's and doctoral students and their supervisors are invited to learn from the experience. The panel usually includes highly-rated international supervisors who are also acknowledged researchers.
