It is widely accepted that there is growing need for more African scholars and scientists to contribute to innovation and development on the African continent and to enhance Africa’s participation in the knowledge economy. We have also witnessed, in recent years, huge increases in the numbers of doctoral enrolments and graduates at many African universities. As a result, the demand for well-prepared doctoral supervisors has increased to the same degree.  

In order to meet this new and growing demand for doctoral supervisors, CREST at Stellenbosch University has developed, with financial support from DAAD, a fully online course especially targeting novice doctoral supervisors.  The course will address important topics such as the nature of the doctorate, models of supervision, the relationship between the doctoral candidate and the supervisor, the guidance that the supervisor has to give to a doctoral candidate throughout the doctoral process and more. Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Competence issued by Stellenbosch University.

More details on the course (outcomes, contents, admission, application procedures, fees, etc.) are available on the CREST web site (click on ).

DAAD boosts the academic cooperation with Libya

The university cooperation and the academic exchange with Libya give important inputs to the political process and have signaling effect. Despite the unstable situation in the country, the universities are functioning well, regular teaching and research operations are taking place and foreign relations are maintained. There is a high interest from Libyan partners and students in cooperation and exchange with Germany.

For decades, the DAAD has promoted academic cooperation with Libya and offers scholarships to students and scholars from Libya to study and research in Germany. University cooperation is funded by projects within the framework of the program “German-Arab Transformation Partnership”.

Last year 25 Libyans, with DAAD scholarships, had the opportunity to study and research in Germany. Also for 2018/19, Libyan applicants have successfully applied for a DAAD scholarship. We congratulate Mr. Belnaser Busnena from the University of Benghazi on the DAAD doctoral scholarship and Mr. Melad Haweyou, also from the University of Benghazi, on the DAAD EPOS scholarship.

You can find the Scholarships for Libyans here:

We are happy to receive your applications!
