Prospective students are strongly encouraged to apply for NRF Freestanding, Innovation and Scarce Skills Masters and Doctoral Scholarships. The deadline for these applications range from the third to last week of July of the preceding year. It is very important that students identify a supervisor well in advance of this date so that arrangements can be made to secure funding for the intended years of study.
The Centre of Criminology offers postgraduate students the opportunity of both research and taught degrees. Masters students can register for an MPhil (Masters) in Criminology & Criminal Justice for Humanities graduates, an LLM in Criminal Justice for Law students, or enroll in our new, multi-disciplinary coursework Masters in Criminology, Law and Society. Doctoral degrees are available with students pursuing a wide range of innovative research work.
