PhD (CSC6000W)

In order to be accepted for PhD studies in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, you must first identify a supervisor who is willing to take you on.

Please look at the list of academic staff and contact individuals in your area of interest. Please, only contact staff if you are interested in working in their research area. Blanket emails across the entire department are ignored and deleted.

Once you have identified a potential supervisor who is willing to supervise you, the supervisor needs to confirm this via email to the Postgraduate Coordinator at: pgcoordinator at cs dot uct dot ac dot za. You may then proceed with the application process.

Please note: Do NOT initiate the application process before following the steps mentioned above. Such applications will be declined.
