Joint PhD degree programme recruiting students
Recently, Hawassa University in South Ethiopia and the University of Bergen agreed on a joint PhD degree programme. The programme is now recruiting students.
Joint-PhDs are doctorates, which are done at two degree-awarding institutions.
This programme is funded by The South Ethiopia Network of Universities in Public Health (SENUPH), and nine PhD students have been registered at the home institution which in this case is Hawassa University. The currently available financial support is for staff at Hawassa, Dilla and Wolaita Sodo universities.
The programme plans to admit seven more students (four women and three men) in September 2016.
