Online: Navigating Research Writing (1 - 11 November)

An intensive face-to-face course, offered twice a year, open to all postgraduate or prospective postgraduate students and researchers. The main focus is for participants to understand and articulate their research in an exploratory written product of their choice.


During the course you will,

  • Understand and articulate your research in an exploratory written product of your choice. (e.g. concept note, proposal or literature review)
  • Develop a research identity in dialogue with an exciting group of experienced researchers.
  • Make arguments and sustain a strong writer’s voice.
  • Complete online writing tasks to reflect on your research experiences.
  • These tasks prompt you to rehearse or revisit ideas towards your final submission.


Course dates

Monday, the 1st to Thursday, the 11th of November 2021


The deadline for receiving applications is Wednesday, the 20th of October. Limited places are available as the class size will be kept small.  

Final acceptance on the course depends on payment of course fees (R600 for members of the UCT community*, R1200 for non-UCT members). There is also a limited number of partial sponsorships. 

 *Some UCT departments are prepared to sponsor their postgraduate students on the course.
