HOW TO APPLY
Thank you for your interest in our Computer Science Postgraduate program at UWC.
Positions in our programme are limited. Our priority at this time is to increase our numbers of South African students in our postgraduate programme. Foreign students will thus be considered after these students. We also do not currently offer bursaries to new foreign students.
Duration of course
Note that currently, we offer a research thesis degree that is normally of a 2-year duration for a MSc and a 3-year duration for a PhD for full time students.
Keep in mind that you will not be considered for a Masters degree unless you have at least a 4 year degree with a Computer Science Major, or a 3 year degree with an honours degree in Computer Science. To be considered for a PhD degree you need to have an MSc degree in Computer Science.
All applicants who did not obtain their qualifications in South Africa / Non South African students, must please submit all your qualifications to SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority) for an evaluation. For a small fee, SAQA will evaluate your qualifications. You can visit their website at www.saqa.org.za for more information. We cannot respond to your application until you submit a certificate issued by SAQA stating the NQF level of your qualifications.
– If the language of instruction of your academic institution is not English, we also require a TOEFL test – http://www.ets.org/toefl/.
