Wits Postgraduate Association

This website serves as a portal of information about the Association and matters affecting postgraduate students at the University. We hope that it will be a regular visit place for postgraduate students.

Welcome to the Postgraduate Association

The PGA advocates for the needs of all postgraduate students, acts as a resource and provides support and services that help advance the postgraduate experience.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning postgraduate students for the 2018/19 academic year.

The Postgraduate Association (PGA) is a body that works closely with different stakeholders to advocates for the needs of all postgraduate student, act as a resource; provide support and services; promote academic leadership, excellence, research output and social interaction.

There are three pillars that the 2018/19 PGA prioritises.

  1. Financial Inquiry
  2. Personal and Intellectual Integrity
  3. Community of Postgraduate Scholars.

It is critical that as you peruse your postgraduate studies, you at some point actualize at least one these pillars for yourself, be it is through research, innovative ideas, new understandings or like myself, through an initiative for shaping the direction of your discipline and society. Regardless, I hope you strive for academic excellence and become part of the Postgraduate Association.
