The objectives of this programme are to promote inter-university co-operation through academic mobility and to enhance the quality of teaching and research in African universities.
DAAD co-operates with the IUCEA in the allocation of funding each year to IUCEA’s African Staff Exchange Programme with respect to teaching assignments, courses and seminars to which credits are allocated.
Eligibility Participants in the programme must be nominated by IUCEA member institutions needing their services, indicating what the duties and functions will be, including expected period and duration, and are granted leave of absence by their home institutions for the purpose of teaching at the guest institution.
