Strengthening the design and management of PhD Programmes in African Universities: a case study of three RUFORUM regional PhD programmes

Abstract: 
This study looked into the details of how three target regional PhD Programmes under the RUFORUM Network arrangements are run and sought to identify areas for improvement. The target case study programmes were the PhD in Plant Breeding and Biotechnology at Makerere University (Uganda) and the two PhD programmes in Malawi at the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources, namely PhD in Aquaculture and Fisheries Science and PhD in Agricultural and Rural Economics. Separate studies were done to capture issues and lessons from other PhD programmes in East Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa.
