MPhil Programme

Description, selection and outcomes

The MPhil programme is an online teaching programme supplemented with interactive live online sessions. A limited number of students are selected on the basis of academic performance and other requirements. The selection results will be available in February and students will be notified by mail. 

The MPhil programme builds on the knowledge, competencies and managerial skills acquired with the PGDip. While the PGDip focuses on a general outline and synopsis of HIV and AIDS management, the MPhil provides even finer detail and empowers students to fully utilize their skills.
