Bunda College of Agriculture, University of Malawi, invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for the Second intake of the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Aquaculture and Fisheries Science program.
The program is designed for 3-4 years (full-time) and will consist of 2-3 semesters (1.5 years) of course work and 4 semesters (2 years) of research. Students may specialize in one of the following areas:
- Aquaculture Production Technology
- Fisheries Science and Management
Limited PhD scholarships are available on competitive basis through DAAD/Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM).
Interested candidates are therefore encouraged to apply and source own funding since the available scholarships are limited.
Only non Malawian students will benefit from the current available Scholarships offered.
The estimated cost of training for the program is US$55,000. This will cover administration fees, tuition, research and student welfare.
