Key requirements:

  • A good previous degree in a relevant area.
  • Financing for your fees and living.
  • A staff member at UCT who is willing to be your supervisor

Normally a thesis topic is chosen in the process of a supervisor agreeing to take you on, and financial arrangements are discussed.
