School of Research and Postgraduate Studies

School Director’s welcome

In recognition of the need to bring research and postgraduate training as components of NWU core business onto a common platform and in response to the increasing demand among the public, corporate and private sectors, non-governmental and civic based organizations (NGOs and CBOs) and among socio-economic planning professionals for access to research-development interface opportunities, I welcome you to the School of Research and Postgraduate Studies (SRPS) and to introduce you to our exciting research and postgraduate programmes.

The vision of the School is to create an environment conducive to research that leads to publication in reputable journals and relevant to socio-economic development in the North West Province in particular, South Africa in general and Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) and Africa at large on the one hand, and to produce timeously quality postgraduates on the other. The School also aims to increase participation in community activities which adhere to the strategic plan of the North West University (NWU).
