3 Message from the Vice-Chancellor Dear prospective student I am delighted that you are considering applying for postgraduate studies at the University of Cape Town. I expect that you are likely to have various options for your postgraduate studies, so I hope that this Prospectus will both enthuse you and answer questions you may have about applying. Choosing a university for postgraduate study, particularly if there is a research component to the degree, should be informed by at least six things: the quality of the supervisors; the reputation of the university; the facilities for research; the existence of research teams and units that have a critical mass of ongoing projects so that one is part of a group and can readily join a flowing river of productive research activity, rather than trying to swim alone with minimal direction and support; the ability to prepare you for the next stage in your career, and opportunities to have fun. Firstly, at UCT you will have the opportunity to get a worldclass training from outstanding teachers and undertake innovative research with internationally experienced supervisors. As a postgraduate student you will benefit directly from the latest scholarly work and discoveries made by our distinguished researchers. The vast majority of our postgraduate teachers have PhDs; more have National Research Foundation ratings than at any other university in SA; some 280 post-doctoral fellows further contribute to research programmes; we have the highest number of A-rated scientists and SA Research Chairs. Secondly, obtaining a degree from the University of Cape Town means that you will have a high quality education from an internationally recognized university that is regarded as a global leader in many fields. Thirdly, our resources and facilities support postgraduate work. In this Prospectus you can read about our library initiatives, IT and computing support, the wide range of academic and professional development opportunities, and the connections between research and solving actual problems in the community or clinical settings. If you have need of specialized laboratory set-ups and apparatus, we are very likely to have those but we encourage you to make direct contact with the head of the relevant department to enquire further. Fourth, UCT has seventy-four recognized research entities including 9 Medical Research Council units. Our research leaders raise over R800 million a year in research grants and contracts. We have many industry supported research programmes and laboratories. And we have people and structures to support you such as the Director of Postgraduate Studies, the postgraduate funding office, the writing centre, research methodology courses, and much more. Finally, most of our academics have extensive networks and collaborations with global partners. As a result, many graduate students have the chance to interact and work with academic leaders from around the world, increasing your opportunities for when you join the globalized world of work. By the time you graduate, you are likely to have built up a network of professional contacts at UCT, other South African universities, industry (depending on your field of study), and further afield in Africa and abroad who can assist you in your further career choices, whether that is to become an academic or to pursue your career in other fields. You will have a great time! You are likely to make new and lasting friendships and, after graduating, will join an extensive alumni community of over 100,000 members reaching all corners of the globe. Postgraduate students from Africa and from the rest of the world make UCT a vibrant and cosmopolitan place. Almost a quarter of the postgraduate students are from countries other than South Africa. In short, UCT strives to provide each postgraduate student with a well-rounded enriching experience that includes academic growth, professional preparedness, cultural engagement and participation in social and sporting activities. All this on the most spectacularly situated campus at the foot of Table Mountain. As a last word I d like to mention finances. We re aware of the financial demands on senior students. Have a look at the various financial support options available to you through the Postgraduate Centre & Funding Office. We look forward to welcoming you to UCT. Max Price Vice-Chancellor 2

5 Voorwoord deur die Visekanselier Beste voornemende student Ek is verheug dat jy dit oorweeg om aansoek te doen vir nagraadse studie aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad (UK). Ek verwag dat jy verskeie moontlikhede vir nagraadse studie oorweeg, dus hoop ek dat dié Prospektus jou entoesiasties sal maak en terselfdertyd sal help om vrae wat jy mag hê rakende aansoeke te beantwoord. As n mens n universiteit vir nagraadse studie kies moet ten minste ses dinge die besluit ten grondslag lê, veral as n navorsingskomponent deel uitmaak van die graad: die gehalte van die studieleiers; die aansien van die universiteit; die fasiliteite vir navorsing; die bestaan van navorsingspanne en -eenhede met n kritiese hoeveelheid voortgesette projekte sodat n mens deel uitmaak van n groep en geredelik by n voortbewegende rivier van produktiewe navorsingsaktiwiteite kan aansluit, eerder as om alleen te probeer swem met minimale rigting en ondersteuning; die vermoë om jouself voor te berei vir die volgende stadium in jou loopbaan, en geleenthede om prêt te hê. By UK sal jy, eerstens, die geleentheid kry om opleiding van wêreldgehalte by uitstaande dosente te ontvang en innoverende navorsing onder leiding van studieleiers met internasionale ervaring te doen. As nagraadse student sal jy direk voordeel trek uit die jongste vakkundige werk en ontdekkings wat deur ons befaamde navorsers gedoen is. Die oorgrote meerderheid van ons nagraadse dosente het Ph.D s; meer dosente as aan enige ander universiteit in SA het n gradering van die Stigting vir Nasionale Navorsing; n verdere 280 post-doktorale studiegenote lewer bydraes tot navorsingsprogramme; ons het die meeste wetenskaplikes met n A-gradering en navorsingsleerstoele in SA. Tweedens, deur n graad aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad te behaal beteken dat jy opvoeding van hoogstaande gehalte ontvang het aan n internasionaal erkende universiteit wat as n wêreldleier op baie gebiede beskou word. Derdens, ons hulpbronne en fasiliteite word aangewend om nagraadse werk te ondersteun. In dié Prospektus kan jy lees oor ons biblioteek-inisiatiewe, IT- en rekenaarondersteuning, die wye reeks akademiese en professionele ontwikkelingsgeleenthede, en die verbande tussen navorsing en die oplos van werklike probleme in die gemeenskap of kliniese omgewings. As jy behoefte aan n gespesialiseerde laboratorium-opset en -apparaat het, hoewel ons heel moontlik reeds daaroor beskik, moedig ons jou aan om direk kontak te maak met die hoof van die tersaaklike department om verdere navrae te doen. 4 Vierdens, UK beskik oor vier en sewentig erkende navorsingsentiteite insluitend 9 Mediese Navorsingsraadeenhede. Ons navorsingsleiers verkry meer as R800 miljoen per jaar in navorsingstoelae en -kontrakte. Ons het baie navorsingsprogramme en laboratoriums wat deur die nywerheidsektor ondersteun word. En ons het mense en strukture om jou te ondersteun soos die Direkteur van Nagraadse Studies, die subsidiekantoor vir nagraadse studie, die skryfsentrum, navorsingmetodologiese kursusse, en vele meer. Laastens, die meeste van ons akademici het uitgebreide netwerke met globale vennote en werk saam met hulle. Gevolglik kry baie gegradueerde studente die geleentheid om in aanraking te kom met akademiese leiers van oral in die wêreld en saam met hulle te werk, wat aan jou meer geleenthede bied wanneer jy deel word van die wêreld se arbeidsmark. Teen die tyd dat jy gradueer, is dit moontlik dat jy n netwerk professionele kontakte by UK, ander Suid- Afrikaanse universiteite, die nywerheidsektor (afhangende van jou studieveld), en verder in Afrika en oorsee opgebou het wat jou kan help in jou verdere loopbaankeuses, `of jy nou n akademikus wil word en `of jy jou loopbaan op ander gebiede wil volg. Jy sal n fantastiese tyd beleef! Dit is moontlik dat jy nuwe en blywende vriendskappe sal sluit en, na graduering, deel sal word van n uitgebreide alumni-gemeenskap van meer as lede versprei tot in die uithoeke van die wêreld. Nagraadse studente van Afrika en van die res van die wêreld maak UK n dinamiese en kosmopolitaanse plek. Nagenoeg n kwart van die nagraadse studente is van ander lande afkomstig. Kortliks, UK strewe daarna om aan elke nagraadse student n goed afgeronde, verrykende ervaring met inbegrip van akademiese groei, professionele gereedheid, kulturele betrokkenheid en deelname in maatskaplike en sportaktiwiteite te bied op n kampus met die skouspelagtigste ligging aan die voet van Tafefberg. Ten slotte wil ek graag praat oor finansies. Ons is bewus van die finansiële eise op senior studente. Kyk gerus na die verskillende finansiële ondersteuningsopsies wat beskikbaar is aan jou deur die Nagraadse Sentrum & Subsidiekantoor vir Finansiering. Ons sien daarna uit om jou by UK te verwelkom.

10 Postgraduate programmes 1 on offer At postgraduate level, the University offers coursework programmes and research programmes. Postgraduate education at UCT commonly results in one of four qualification outputs: a Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD); a Master s degree; an Honours degree; or a Postgraduate Diploma. Postgraduate Diploma programmes, Honours and Master s programmes are usually a combination of coursework and a research-based dissertation. Some Master s and all PhD programmes are by research-based dissertation only. The duration of Postgraduate programmes Postgraduate Diplomas vary in duration but usually do not exceed one year s study; Honours programmes are one year; Master s programmes that combine coursework and a research dissertation usually span over two years (although it can be completed within one year); Master s degrees by research dissertation only are usually completed within 2 years; and PhD programmes are usually 3 to 4 years. Research-linked programmes UCT has a large number of postgraduate programmes that are linked to research groups or collaboration frameworks, briefly described below. These include the Centres of Excellence, the SARChIs (see below), the university s over 70 accredited research units, centres or institutes as well as a number of research signature themes. Centres of Excellence and SARChIs The Department of Science and Technology s South African Research Chair Initiative (SARChI) was designed to strengthen the production of high quality research and innovation, and through this to increase the quality of training of postgraduate students. These SARChI programmes and the Centres of Excellence and Competence Centres conduct cutting-edge research, train postgraduate students and are of specific interest to PhD students and Postdoctoral Research Fellows. The University of Cape Town has 33 SARChI chairs, 2 Centres of Excellence, 1 Centre of Excellence node and 1 Competence Centre which make UCT the frontrunning university on the African continent in terms of research production. The following lists UCT s flagship SARChI, Centre of Excellence and Competence Centre programmes for postgraduate students: postgate Commerce Economic Growth, Poverty and Inequality: Exploring the Interactions for South Africa Poverty and Inequality Engineering & the Built Environment Bioprocess Engineering Broadband Networks and Applications Catalysis C* Change (Centre of Excellence) Hydrogen Catalysis (Competence Centre) Minerals Beneficiation Reaction Engineering Urban Policy Health Sciences Brain Imaging Cancer Biology Centre for Biomedical TB Research (Centre of Excellence Node) Clinical Neurosciences Health and Wealth in South Africa Immunology and Infectious Diseases in Africa Infection and Immunity of Poverty-related Diseases Humanities Archive and Popular Culture Islam, African Publics and Religious Values Land Reform and Democracy in South Africa Migration, Language and Social Change Law Customary Law Security and Justice Science Animal Evolution and Systematics Astrophysics and Space Science Birds as Keys to Biodiversity Conservation (Centre of Excellence) Climate Change Computational Mechanics Drug Discovery Environmental and Social Dimensions of the Bio-Economy Marine Ecology and Fisheries Multi-wavelength Astronomy Scientific Computing 1 In keeping with international trends, we refer here to programmes of study. For administrative purposes, the UCT application form does not refer to programmes, but uses the term qualification to refer to the type of degree (e.g. BSc, MA, PhD) and stream to refer to the specialisation (e.g. Archaeology, Transport Studies, African Languages). 9

11 Oceanic Circulation in the Agulhas Regime Stable Isotopes in Archaeology and the Paleo-environment For further information see: strategic_initiatives/sarchi_chairs/ Signature themes and strategic initiatives for research In addition to these flagship programmes, the University has established signature themes and strategic initiatives to drive research in a strategic manner. The signature theme provide a framework for multi-, inter-, and also transdisciplinary research to be done on an interdepartmental and inter-faculty basis. The signature themes are therefore grounded in existing areas of internationally recognised excellence whilst being aligned to institutional, regional and national priorities. Minerals to Metals The Minerals to Metals Signature Theme has moved minerals beneficiation research in the Department of Chemical Engineering from a narrow focus on separate processes to a novel holistic view of the entire minerals beneficiation chain (including environmental, economic and social effects). This innovative approach is laying the platform for moving the minerals industry into a more sustainable paradigm. Marine Research Institute (Ma-Re) The Ma-Re Institute provides a collegial framework with opportunities to develop a vibrant interdisciplinary research ethos among postgraduate students, academic staff, and national and international researchers. African Centre for Cities (ACC) As part of its multi-disciplinary educational, research and advisory work, the programme embeds PhD students in the City of Cape Town where they are helping to drive innovative research and policy-making in the Green Economy, Energy, Climate Change and the Built Environment programme. In turn, professionals from the City Department are accommodated in ACC to write up their projects. This exchange programme is probably unique in the world, and is designed to both enhance scarce analytical capacity and knowledge, and to help urbanists understand how policy is shaped and produced in different settings. Drug Discovery The University s drug development programme has been advanced significantly by consolidating investment and technology in the new H3-D Centre. The H3-D is harnessing technologies, skills and expertise in the drug discovery value chain integrating medicinal chemistry, biology, pharmacology as well as a drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic technological platforms. The first malaria clinical candidate to be discovered in South Africa and Africa was by H3-D and partners. It is the first compound researched on African soil to enter preclinical development in partnership with Medicines for Malaria Venture. Brain and Behaviour Initiative The initiative coordinates local neuroscience resources. It conducts research on psychological trauma, substance use disorders, neurohiv and foetal alcohol syndrome. In addition, the Department of Psychiatry undertakes research on the effects of trauma and of methamphetamine, the Department of Psychology and collaborators in Health Sciences are pursuing their expertise in neuropsychology, and members of the Sports Science Institute have begun to include behavioural and imaging measures in their work. African Climate and Development Initiative (ACDI) South Africa, with the rest of the African continent, has an imperative to improve human wellbeing, but within the constraints of the need for low-carbon development and mounting impacts of climate variability and change. The ACDI engages with these challenges through an interdisciplinary research hub that brings together academics with NGOs, business and government in a knowledge factory that co-produces and tests new insights, evidence and innovations that will help to solve Africa s climate and development challenges. Safety and Violence Initiative The initiative brings together scholars from various faculties across UCT, including Commerce, Health Sciences, Humanities, Law and Engineering & the Built Environment. It sustains research collaborations that contribute to the promotion of safety, reducing violence and to raising awareness about these issues within South Africa (and in due course in other African countries). A key feature of the research is to develop theory and to translate this into practice. Poverty and Inequality Initiative The research initiative tackles the question of why, in a country of rich resources, poverty and inequality are persisting and even, in the case of inequality, deepening. The research aims to involve all major role players inside and outside the university, including academics, research groups and NGOs who are doing poverty-alleviationrelated work, be it in policy or at intervention levels. Schools Improvement Initiative The Schools Improvement Initiative is a direct response to the education crisis in South Africa which not only has negative implications for the country as a whole but poses serious challenges for higher education. The research is focused on addressing the underachievement of learners, in particular in township schools around Cape Town. 10
