The project is designed to facilitate the movement of Masters and PhD students
and staff between selected national universities in the African sub-regions as a
me a n s o f b u i l d i n g c a p a c i t i e s a n d

The project focuses on postgraduate education and research as a means of
strategic capacity development by making available a wide variety of postgraduate
