Closing date for online applications: 30 September 2021

The Centre for Environmental Management (CEM) can only accommodate a limited number of students per year in the structured Masters of Science majoring in Environmental Management programme. Due to the high number of applicants, only the best students are selected for the programme. The number of students that are selected will depend on the supervision capacity at the CEM, at the time of selection. 

Students are therefore selected through a competitive process by a panel of academic staff from the CEM.

Minimum requirements

The minimum requirements to be considered by the selection panel are:

  • An applicable Bachelor of Science Honours Degree
  • Appropriate experience in the environmental management sector will be an added advantage for admission consideration by CEM.

It is suggested that prospective students must also submit a concept note (short research proposal), after consultation with staff at the CEM, together with the selection form to the CEM. The following email address should be used:

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

Potential RPL candidates should apply for the Master of Science majoring in Environmental Management using the standard application process. Suitable candidates will be recommended by the selection panel to enter the RPL process after provisional acceptance.

Applicants should not enter the RPL process unless they have specifically been recommended and notified by the selection panel.
