Teaching and Training - Student Exchange

Student Exchange

AfriCity closely interlinks research, teaching and training. In order to involve and to encourage young scientists, we are providing full scholarships for Masters students (M.A./M.Sc./M.Ed. or similar) for a short-term study stay at one of our partnering universities. African students are welcome to participate in courses and other learning activities at the Institute of Geography, University of Erlangen-Nuernberg (FAU), Germany. FAU Geography students will be hosted by Sokoine University or CBE (Morogoro or Dar es Salaam, Tanzania), the University of Malawi (Zomba, Malawi), or Rhodes University (Grahamstown, South Africa). To be eligible to participate in the exchange programme, you must be registered as a student or a research assistant at the AfriCity partnering department of your home university.
