Collaboration with University of Cape Town and University of Fort Hare.
The funding application is the second phase of the University Staff Doctoral Programme (USDP) which will implement partnership between the UK and south Africa Higher Education Network. The aim is to increase the number of academics with PhDs at South African universities (including enhancing infrastructure and resources for PhD and Master’s Supervision). This grant involves the British Council and focuses on partnerships between UK and SA universities in support of doctoral training for University academic staff exploring various models for Doctoral Training.
This development grant is intended for scoping and development of proposals for the USDP Phase 2 proposal submissions. The current grant will be £5,000-£10,000 and enable more focussed engagement and exploration of potential partnerships in preparation for the submission of the Phase 2 (5th July 2019) for the joint proposal for doctoral training.
Our proposal will work with network/collaborations already established with University of Cape Town and University of Fort Hare (Historically Disadvantaged Institution). The grant will fund network opportunities (possibly visits for UK to SA and SA to UK) for the three institutions to develop the submission for phase 2.
