Our Students

Diversity as Value Added

As in previous years, the heterogeneous character of the student group is manifested not only by the nations represented but also in terms of the first degree of students and their previous practical experience related to development cooperation. This is seen as an important value added not only by the IEE. Students are convinced that they benefit from exchange of experiences alongside their studies.

In 2018, a number of 28 students joined the "MA in Development Management" in Bochum or the "Bochum Programme of Development Management" at the University of the Western Cape of which 13 are male and 15 female. The 21 countries represented in the student body are Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Germany, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, South Africa, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Uganda, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe.

Again, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the organisation through which a considerable number of scholarships is financed via its Development-Related Postgraduate Course programme called EPOS. Furthermore, nine scholarships in Cape Town are also funded by DAAD through the Development Research Division of the "South African-German Centre for Development Research" at UWC.

Under "Current Students" you find all students currently participating at our MA in Development Management programme (intake 2018).
