Most of the young people who matriculate in South Africa and qualify on paper to apply to study further simply aren’t ready for the rigours of a university education.
Five fellowships are being offered to young or mid-career (a scholar with less than 5 years of experience as a university teacher), Africa-based academics with a good academic record and the minimum of a Master’s degree to come to the University of Cape Town and develop their courses and teaching materials and / or write up completed research for publication.
Scholars today exchange a wide range of content in the course of their academic work. In some cases this occurs in the context of formal publication, but a large amount of content is also shared online in teaching and research contexts.
