CREST at Stellenbosch University has developed a fully online course especially targeting novice doctoral supervisors. The course addresses important topics such as the nature of the doctorate, models of supervision, the relationship between the doctoral candidate and the supervisor, the guidance that the supervisor has to give to a doctoral candidate throughout the doctoral process and more. Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Competence issued by Stellenbosch University.

The next offering of the course will start on 2 August 2021. Applications close on 31 May 2021.
