Applicants who hold qualifications from recognised institutions at NQF level 8, or equivalent, in disciplines related to Informatics may be considered for admission to this programme. Applicants need to provide evidence of having conducted supervised research and may be required to make - up specific deficiencies in coursework at the discretion of the Postgraduate Studies Committee. In addition, applicants may be required to attend a pre - selection interview and/or test at the discretion of the department.
Applicants from other institutions must submit detailed information on all courses in their previous qualifications, as well as contact details of three referees. The latter also applies to applicants who have been working in the field subsequent to obtaining their previous qualifications.
Registration prior to the approval of a research proposal is provisional and will be made official only when the proposal is approved by the Postgraduate Studies Committee. These procedures will be fully explained to each prospective student during his or her personal interview.
