Since May 2002, the programme has also been offered at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa; originally as part of the DAAD initiative "German Programmes of Study Abroad" and now as part of the DAAD funded "South African - German Centre for Development Research". The duration of each programme cycle is three semesters (18 months). For each intake, up to 25 students are accepted in Bochum and up to 20 students in Cape Town.
