Each Faculty has a nominated Associate or Sub-Dean for Graduate Studies where your application is forwarded to determine your eligibility and assess the availability of a supervisory team.
If your application is deemed eligible and there is adequate supervision for the area of research, the nominated Principal Supervisor is then required to complete a Faculty Admission form and submit this to the Research Office for approval through the Research Advisory Committee.
When the Committee has endorsed your approval for admission, the Research Office then arranges to have an offer for admission processed through the Admissions Office and you will receive your enrolment package.
