Young Researchers Programme

Postgraduate research is an important means of building capacity for LED. The programme aims to offer opportunities for several students to undertake a Masters and PhD degree through research. Young researchers will contribute to the wider programme through facilitation and engagement with the course work programme of study and by interacting with LED interventions on the ground in KZN. Students must have a strong commitment to LED and will be required to work directly with academic staff on key research issues identified in LED.
