DHET accredited publications

Postgraduate students are required to submit (Masters)/ publish (Doctorate) an article in a DHET-accredited journal before they can graduate. The accredited journals are listed here. Please also see the HDC 1.8 form under Committees.

Thesis submission process

Before submission of the thesis, a plagiarism check, using the Turnitin online platform, must be done and the similarity report must be submitted to the supervisor/HOD.

It is a requirement that postgraduate students submit a corrected version of their dissertation/ thesis to the library. This must be in the form of an electronic copy with signatories as outlined in the Thesis submission process form.

The electronic submission process is explained in this Final Submission Process document.

Faculty Research Coordinators/ Chairpersons/ Assistant Deans

Postgraduate studies are coordinated in the faculties and research units by the faculty research coordinators (FRCs) or chairpersons or assistant deans. The CPGS liaises directly with the FRCs in respect of postgraduate study. They are therefore the first port of call for students in all matters relating to postgraduate studies.
