Internationale Studierende lernen gemeinsam in der Bibliothek.

Applications are now open for the DIES/CREST Online Training Course for Supervisors of Doctoral Candidates at African Universities offered by the Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology at the University of Stellenbosch.

There is a need for more African scholars and scientists to contribute to innovation and development on our continent and to enhance Africa’s participation in the knowledge economy. Due to the rapid increase in doctoral enrolments at African universities in recent years, many more well-prepared supervisors are needed at African universities.

This DIES/CREST course offers a flexible study opportunity to academic staff members, particularly novice doctoral supervisors, who are interested to advance their knowledge, skills and networks in doctoral supervision.

The closing date for applications for the first offering is 31 March 2019. Successful applicants will be notified before 12 April 2019.

The closing date for applications for the second offering is 29 August 2019. Successful applicants will be notified during September 2019.
