Partnership between UK and South Africa will train dozens of master’s and PhD students
South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand and the University of Edinburgh in the UK have jointly established a postgraduate training scheme targeting sustainability.
In a statement on 3 February, Wits confirmed that the scheme would enable an estimated 50 African researchers to study for a master’s in sustainability research. Of that cohort, 30 will continue to a PhD that will be supervised by both institutions. The scheme is supported by the Mastercard Foundation.
