This booklet is an output of the EU-ACP EDULINK supported Project on “Strengthening Capacity of Universities in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa to offer Quality Graduate Programmes – Grant ID: 9ACP RPR 12#33”. This handbook builds on the renewed commitment by African governments to re-vitalize Higher Education in the continent to support Africa’s development agenda especially under the frameworks for the Second Decade of Higher Education in Africa (2006-2015) and the Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP). The two frameworks provide guidelines for reinvigorating higher education in the continent to respond better to the critical need for quality and skilled human resource and for universities to engage more pro-actively and effectively in the continent’s development process. The Booklet also responds to the EU-ACP EDULINK thrust of promoting international and regional collaboration in the field of Higher Education in the ACP and EU regions.
