Postgraduate short courses open for applications Print
Thursday, 26 July 2012 15:01
The Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology (CREST) at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa has announced dates for its postgraduate programme in Research Uptake and Utilisation.
Effective management of Research Uptake calls for a new type of specialist, one equipped with knowledge about the research cycle and effective pathways to Research Uptake and Utilisation and the expertise to facilitate what processes are needed at the institution.
The postgraduate short courses are designed to fulfil in-service training requirements and will be delivered annually. These modular courses are academically accredited by the University of Stellenbosch and candidates will have the option to be awarded a certificate of attendance or to submit to an assessment, which may potentially serve as credits towards the MPhil programme (see below). The first round of courses, to be held in three regions, are likely to fill up fast, so it would be in your university`s interests to identify suitable candidates to attend the courses sooner rather than later.

For more information, download this brochure. To apply to attend the courses, download the application form.
Financial support to attend the series of short courses is available for TWO INDIVIDUALS FROM EACH PARTICIPATING DRUSSA UNIVERSITY ONLY. Ideally it is up to the participating university to decide which two individuals to nominate for financial support. Once all applications for a short course have been received at the time of the deadline, the university leadership will be contacted with the list of names of all applicants from that university and asked to nominate and motivate which two applicants should qualify for financial support.
