If you meet the minimum entry requirements, and if a potential supervisor is identified and agrees in principle to work with you as supervisor on your dissertation, you will be asked to formally apply for (and in due course register) for the Ph D programme on the university website.
Once an offer has been made you are able to register.
Please go to the University website and check the cost of a Ph D.
International applicants should check under the relevant section, International Students, for their fees.
We may also require you to do additional courses in programme evaluation, research design or statistics.
The relationship is primarily administrative, and not necessarily pedagogical (although a number of excellent programme evaluators apply management studies principles to their work).The information below is a summary of the program, and details eligibility, application requirements, and evaluation criteria for the program.Please read carefully through the material and accompanying FAQ.A short proposal (minimum ½ a page) describing the proposed evaluation topic for the Ph D should also be included, as this is essential to determine whether or not an appropriate supervisor can be identified for your chosen area of research.These documents should be forwarded to the Programme Convener, Assoc Prof Sarah Chapman: Sarah. A preliminary check will then be performed to ensure you fulfil the necessary prerequisites and requirements, and if so, the relevant documents will be forwarded to potential suitable supervisors in the area of your interest.The degree is registered in the School of Management Studies (Commerce Faculty), and is administered by the Section of Organisational Psychology.However, a background in organisational psychology or management studies is not a requirement for entry into the degree, and graduates will similarly not acquire a professional qualification in organisational psychology on the basis of the degree.During this time you will be supervised closely to prepare a proposal that would be acceptable to the various university committees.Please make note of these requirements, especially if you are an international applicant not currently in residence in Cape Town.Producing a manuscript describing your work on a programme or an existing evaluation report does not fulfil this requirement and would not be accepted as a proposal.Also note that the university requires ethical clearance for all data collected for research purposes.
