Staff are encouraged to undertake limited consultancy work to assist in community and national development. All consultancy work has to be approved by the university. Consultancies are usually undertaken by staff working on behalf of the university (institutional consultancies).
In these cases the university assumes responsibility for monitoring the quality of the research. Occasionally some staff may undertake private work, provided this is reported to the university via the Directorate of Research, Consultancy and Postgraduate Studies. In these cases the university takes no responsibility for the quality of the work.
