Masters Mentorship Network 2021

Masters Mentorship Network Information.

Every year, hundreds of students apply for Coursework Masters programmes around South Africa. These programmes are well known for their in-depth applications, intensive selection interviews, and limited spaces.

Cognition & Co endeavors to create networking opportunities whereby potential masters students can receive guidance and support from mentors that have successfully been through the Masters application and interview processes. In an attempt to achieve this goal, we created the Masters Mentorship Network.
