This two-year programme will provide students with the opportunity to combine Masters’ level training with an intensive study of an African language (Swahili) in order to acquire the skills necessary for future professional or research careers. The programme will enable students to engage with the subject of their Masters’ programme in Africa through an African language, to engage with sources and data in an African language and to conduct research and professional work in Africa.

This programme is also aimed at professionals wishing to pursue careers directly related to Africa, including government departments (of both the UK and other countries), and in firms requiring particular skills and knowledge related to trading, investment and promotional interests outside Europe.
