Masters Preparation Session – Johannesburg

COVID-19 Event Update:

Following the address from President Cyril Ramaphosa last night regarding the spread and containment of the COVID-19 Virus, Cognition & Co believes that bringing together a mass group of people for the Masters Preparation Sessions would be dangerous and could unnecessarily put students in harms way.

It is for this reason that we are looking into options that would make our Masters Preparation Session available online for everyone that has bought tickets to the event. We are sure that by using an online platform, we can still achieve our goal of spreading information and answering your questions about masters applications, selections and interviews.

We hope you understand our reasons behind the change in delivery; our students health and well-being are our main concern and we do not want to put anyone in any danger. We want to also thank our speakers for being so open and helpful during this difficult time.

Get Ready!

Every year, hundreds of students apply for Coursework Masters Programmes around South Africa. This year, Cognition & Co wants to help you prepare for the applications, selections and interviews.

We have also invited representatives from different universities in the area to talk to students about their masters programmes and share information about their selections and interviews.
