For candidates with an outstanding academic record, a small number of fee waived scholarship positions is offered every year, on a number of thematic areas.

The process is highly competitive, as usually there are more applicants than awards available. The main criteria for selection are academic excellence and the quality of the applicant’s research proposal.  It is essential to demonstrate good knowledge of the proposed topic, as well as related experience. Opportunities for fee waived study are announced through the SEERC website.

Fee Waivers are given only for full time studies.

The award covers tuition fees only and not living expenses.

The fee waiver award is renewable annually for the duration of the minimum registration period for tuition fee-paying purposes, and is subject to the satisfactory progress of the student. Note that the first year of the degree will be considered a probationary year. All students will be required to undergo a 'Confirmation Review', which will confirm their registration as a doctoral level student within the first 12 months of a full-time student's registration (pro-rata for part-time students).
