The Departments of Research Support and Management as well as Research Development continue to support students through processing of postgraduate bursaries, both free-standing and where these are linked to research grant-holders.

The National Research Foundation postponed all deadlines for the month of March to the end of April. Concerns with NRF funding issues have been raised with the NRF through USAf.

The Department of Higher Education has extended the deadline for the Annual Submission of Research Outputs to 30 June 2020.  However, the University will endeavour as far as possible to meet the original May 15 deadline.

The Department of Research Support and Management continues to liaise with national and international funders to negotiate submission deadlines as the cases arise.
