6.3If the HOD holds a preliminary view that the candidate meets the minimum academic requirements for admission and has the necessary academic maturity to enrol for the degree, that the proposed topic is suitable and that supervision capacity and other resources exist in the Department, the HOD will request the candidate to submit a statement of intent.

6.4A statement of intent is not a research proposal but rather a preliminary document that assists the HOD in determining whether a candidate and the proposed research topic are suitable and whether the candidate can proceed to the proposal writing stage. It provides a brief background and contextualisation of the intended study as well as some evidence that the candidate has knowledge of research methodology at the appropriate level.

6.5A statement of intent shall contain:

6.5.1A preliminary title

6.5.2The field of study
