African Doctoral Academy

Register now ADA Summer School 2018        Scholarships

The African Doctoral Academy (ADA) serves to coordinate and strengthen excellence in doctoral education at Stellenbosch University (SU) and across the African continent. The ADA’s bi-annual, two week long Doctoral Schools take place every year in Summer (January) and Winter (June-July) and aim to offer high impact research and methodology training, as well as options in academic preparedness and career development. The Schools are open to doctoral candidates, their supervisors and researchers in general. Each week offers a number of workshops taking place concurrently and offers an intense and concentrated  training opportunity by experts in their fields. With delegates hailing from South Africa, Africa and beyond, these Doctoral Schools are an opportunity to network with fellow delegates and lecturers and exchange ideas and knowledge during the formal classes. Additional extra-curricular classes open to all delegates and the social evenings each week.  You can read some testimonials from our delegates that have attended these Doctoral Schools in the past. Since 2016 the ADA has presented Joint Doctoral Schools at Makerere University (Uganda), the Univeristy of Malawi, the University of Namibia, as well as the University of Ghana with funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
