VUT Research’s Postgraduate Courses:
At VUT Research we offer a Postgraduate Induction Programme for all our new or first-year postgraduate students. The objective of this programme is to ensure that all postgraduate students in the Faculty of Management Sciences receive optimal support in their journey from the initiation until the completion of their studies. The programme requires regular and productive attendance as much of the information on how to prepare an acceptable proposal is only available in class. Any student having less than 70% attendance at the programme will not receive any further support from the Faculty and the Postgraduate Office. Thus, a supervisor will not be appointed to assist you in your studies.
VUT Research’s Submission & Extension Guidelines
The postgraduate courses that are offered at VUT are emphasized by the intense levels of research they require in order to be completed on time and at a high standard. Postgraduate research requires strict time management skills on part of the student as there are many hours involved in gathering information, evaluating the data and then reporting back on it. Postgraduate research also needs to be done by a student who is independent and who has the drive to complete this incredibly formidable task they have set for themselves. We believe that a postgraduate degree shows a student’s dedication to a particular field, and also shows their discipline in working hard and their knowledge of a particular subject. These courses require the utmost perseverance and commitment from the students if they are to complete the course within the required time. The minimum required time to complete the course will be one year and the maximum time will be 4 years for Masters and 5 years for Doctorate studies. A student has to register each year for the duration of study of the Higher Degree.
