All applicants for Master's and Doctoral studies should fill in the Show of Interest form below before submitting a formal application. The form will be circulated to relevant members of staff to establish whether there is any supervisory interest. In the event that a staff member expresses interest in supervising your intended research, you will then be contacted to apply formally via the UCT online applications portal. All offers remain provisional until approved by the Dean of Science and once all formal application criteria have been fulfilled.
Unsuccessful applicants will be contacted and informed of the outcome.
In the event that you have already submitted a formal application, you are still required to fill in the Show of Interest form.
An important note about funding:
It is very important that students start the application process early in order to secure a supervisor well in advance of any funding deadlines.
Please be aware that the Chemistry Department does not have funding to disburse. Applicants should explore options via the UCT postgraduate funding site, as well as independent funding from elsewhere. Some supervisors may have scholarship funding for students, which they will discuss with you independently in the event that they express an interest in supervising you.
For applicants who are considering applying for NRF funding, the deadline for NRF applications is early in June of the preceding year. For more information, see http://www.nrf.ac.za/bursaries/calls.
