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 2020, a number of 23 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 10 are male and 13 female. The 18 countries represented in the student body are Bangladesh, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Syria, Uganda, 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, some students of the 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 2022-24).
