EGS welcomes its new incoming postgraduate students

8 Mar 2021 - 14:45

On Monday 8 March we had the pleasure of welcoming our new incoming postgraduate students. We have over 50 new students into our Honours programme, and Environment, Society and Sustainability, African Climate Development Initiative and Southern Urbanism coursework Masters programmes. We also have a number of new dissertation MA, MSc and PhD candidates.

We ran our orientation programme via our UCT’s VULA platform and with a number of Zoom meet ups. Dr Jore von Holdt, who convenes our Honours programme, sent us all on a Zoom speed-dating exercise and we all came away feeling like we were part of a community despite being stuck at home in different places all around the world.

Seen here are some screen grabs from our postgraduate welcome session.




While we hope to meet all our postgraduate students in person at some point, for now in the interests of everyone’s safety we must proceed with physically distanced learning online.
