University Policies and Guidelines

Higher study is a most amazing, and occasionally daunting, undertaking. An excellent overview of what can be expected for both students and their supervisors is provided by the University in the following webpage 'expectations of supervisors/students'. Students and Supervisors, please encourage each other to read this advice.

ECS Policies and Guidelines

The following policies and guidelines are mainly designed for academic staff members particularly those who currently have thesis students or who intend to get students. However, the thesis students can also read them particularly the examination policies, and PhD full registration policy, and the policies/guidelines on enrolment, six-monthly reports, and research grants.

Please note that the Masters proposal is expected within 1 month of enrolment and the PhD proposal is expected within 9 months of enrolment.
