Dear partners and coordinators
We would like to inform you that DAAD offers again a virtual training for your supervisors. Supervisors of DAAD PhD scholarship holders currently have the opportunity to apply for the following offer:
CREST Online Training Course for Supervisors of Doctoral Candidates at African Universities.
Please inform the respective supervisor(s) accordingly. We will additionally provide the same information to the PhD scholarship holders.
The CREST online course addresses important topics such as the context and challenges related to doctoral education at African universities, the nature of the doctoral qualification, the relationship between the doctoral candidate and the supervisor, models of supervision, the guidance that the supervisor must give to a doctoral candidate throughout the doctoral process and more.
The next course, where a certain number of places are reserved for supervisors of DAAD scholarship holders, will commence on 8 August 2022, the coursework component will be completed on 7 October 2022, followed by a practical assignment due on 7 November 2022.
Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Competence issued by Stellenbosch University, South Africa.
Applications for supervisors of DAAD In-Country/In-Region scholarship holders close on 13 June 2022.
The DAAD will cover the course fee. Participants do not have to pay the course fee by themselves in advance.
To be considered for the DAAD sponsored participation in the course, you must be employed by or affiliated with a DAAD partner institution within the In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme (www.daad.de/incountry-inregion), have a doctoral degree (or expect to receive your doctoral degree by the end of 2022), you have to supervise or co-supervise doctoral DAAD scholarship holders within the DAAD In-Country/In-Region Scholarship Programme (or be expected to do so before the end of 2022), and you need a letter of support from your head of department or dean confirming that you are or will be a supervisor in the DAAD programme. You also need to agree to the DAAD terms of participations (see the DAAD application form in the CREST application tool).
Thank you very much for your support.
