Over two hundred applications were received for the 2010 intake of the Masters Programme in Sustainable Development. This is much higher than previous years. Applicants come from many different parts of the world, with many from African countries. For the second year running the largest group of applicants who have been accepted come from the private sector, followed closely by the number who work for the public sector, with a scattering from NGOs and educational institutions. The majority of applicants who have been admitted are black, thus reflecting South Africa’s demographic profile. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to accept everyone because we only have the space and supervision capacity to accept at most 60 students. Regretfully, no further applications can therefore be considered.
