"I strongly believe that the postgraduate student experience should be much more than simply graduating. We ideally want our students to graduate with a passion for learning and research, to achieve their research potential, to have built a network of valuable contacts, to have a deep understanding of academic integrity and other professional standards, and to provide them with a skill set useful in a wide range of related careers."
This was the clear message conveyed by Prof Marinda Oosthuizen, newly appointed Deputy Dean for Research and Postgraduate Studies in the Faculty, when she shared her views about the role of the Faculty in enhancing the University’s academic stature and its postgraduate education. Appointed with effect from 1 July, Prof Oosthuizen says that, in order to ensure this she would strive to create an environment in the Faculty where its postgraduate students are fully integrated into its research themes and groups.
