Assessing and evaluating postgraduate theses and dissertations

The training and preparation of future generations of academics and scholars (researchers) are of vital importance for the development of a country.  These future generations are cultivated through a process of postgraduate study which culminates in the writing of a thesis or dissertation.  Years of hard work and huge sacrifices in terms of energy, time and resources are made by students and supervisors.  It is therefore essential that the final evaluation of a successful thesis or dissertation be done in such a way that all stakeholders can be proud of what has been achieved.

Supervisors of postgraduate studies and examiners responsible for evaluating theses and dissertations
