About us

The College of Humanities Research Office team serves three campuses: Howard College, Edgewood and Pietermaritzburg.

The College Research Office Headquarters is in Howard College (Ground Floor of the MTB Building), where responsibilities are divided between Postgraduate Studies and Research. In the former is Thuli Bekwa, and in the latter is Thobile Myeni, who is also Prof Morojele’s administrator. In Edgewood, postgraduate matters are dealt with by Tyzer Khumalo; and in Pietermaritzburg by Beulah Jacobsen and Belinda Davis, as well as Karen Sophie (Education). There is a good mixture of experience and new blood, as well as a healthy diversity among the staff.

As the College Research Offices serve 4300 postgraduate students as well as some 450 permanent and temporary academic staff, they are busy places. But the track record of the staff in the new school-configuration model is excellent and we pride ourselves on being courteous and efficient.

NRF Rated Staff

The NRF rating system is a key driver in the NRF’s aim to build a globally competitive science system in South Africa. It is a valuable tool for benchmarking the quality of our researchers against the best in the world. NRF ratings are allocated based on a researcher’s recent research outputs and impact as perceived by international peer reviewers. The rating system encourages researchers to publish high quality outputs in high impact journals/outlets. Rated researchers as supervisors will impart cutting-edge skills to the next generation of researchers.
