Purpose

To develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions of inexperienced, future and current postgraduate supervisors, by exposing them to and by actively involving them in the latest scientific thinking, practice, theories, policies, methodologies and strategies related to the supervision of postgraduate (master’s and doctoral) students within the evolving South African Higher Education context. It is envisaged that participants will gradually become reflective practitioners of postgraduate supervision (including the associated ethics of supervision, approaches to assessment of postgraduate research and research methodologies as they intersect with supervision).

To gain admission into the Postgraduate Diploma in Research Supervision a potential student should possess a) at least a Master’s degree or equivalent (at NQF level 9) AND b) have a minimum of two years’ experience of at least honours-level research supervision and assessment at the time of registration, OR have commensurate appropriate Higher Education experience


Selection Process

An average of 65% for the previous degree is required to be allowed into the programme. In addition to the minimum admission requirements as outlined above, prospective students may undergo a selection process, including personal interviews and testing.
