Leibniz in Africa


Joint supervision & co-supervision

Occasionally, PhD students find it difficult to find a suitable supervisor in their area of research at the research institution of their choice. Co-supervision models are designed to assist African students who find themselves in this situation.


A German co-supervisor will work closely with their African counterpart in supervising the African student. Frequent supervision talks via skype are required, mutual visits an option.
