4th National Postgraduate Development Imbizo

Our 4th National Postgraduate Development Imbizo was held on 11 August 2015, at the Joburg Theatre. The highlight of the Imbizo this year was the launch of the second edition of our Postgraduate Toolkit on DVD. The focus of this year’s Imbizo was on the thorny issue of postgraduate supervision.
