Teaching Staff

An individual supervisor is allocated to all doctoral students. Essential criterion for the selection of the supervisor is their expertise in the subject area in which the student is writing their thesis.

The doctoral supervisor will provide assistance and advice to achieve the best possible outcome. Doctoral studies are challenging and often enormously demanding. However, the right support can make them a unique experience of achievements. That is what the Nyangani Virtual University’s Doctoral School offers to its research students.
