As the number of doctoral enrollments and graduates at African universities increased, the demand for well-prepared doctoral supervisors has also drastically increased, to help develop and modernize the African continent.
Hence, CREST at Stellenbosch University and DAAD have developed a full online course targeting doctoral supervisors.

The course will focus on the following:

  • 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

This course for you if you are an employee of an African university with doctor degree or expect to receive your doctor degree by end of 2018.

Successful participants will:

  • Receive a Certificate of Competence issued by Stellenbosch University
  • Be invited to participate in a networking seminar at Stellenbosch University in 2019 (all costs covered)

Enrollment is open until the 18th of August 2018
