UCT GSB PhD Format & Term Dates

The PhD programme consists of a series of formalised online/blended workshops (PRCs) aimed at first year students (although students at all levels are invited to participate). The themes of the workshops are co-created based on the specific needs of the cohort, but roughly the programme is as follow: PRC’s 1 and 2 focus on the theoretical underpinnings of research projects, and PRC 3 focus on the proposal presentations. The fourth and final workshop (PRC 4) entitled: “Life after the PhD”, will provide students with career guidance from the GSB Career Services team and PhD alumni.
