The  Higher  Education  Master’s  in  Africa  Programme  (HEMA)  is  a  NORAD-sponsored  collaborative programme involving the University of the Western Cape, the University of Oslo,  and  the  Centre  for  Higher  Education  Transformation  (CHET). 

HEMA  at  UWC  is  a  research- based programme (by dissertation) focusing on the changing functions, policies, and operations of  Higher Education. Before conducting thesis research, students will take three non-credit modules,  viz.  Introduction  to  Higher  Education  (to  be  taught  at  the  University  of  Oslo  as  part  of  the  Erasmus  Mundus  European  Master’s  in  Higher  Education  Programme);  Research  Methods  and  Proposal Development; and Higher Education and Development (to be taught at UWC).  

Through various disciplinary perspectives, the programme will provide students with a solid basis  for analysing and critically assessing change processes at all relevant levels in higher education.  This  Master’s  programme  is  the  first  to  include  a  focus  on  the  complex  relationship  between  higher education and development. The programme is linked to a research network on expertise  in higher education in Africa, giving successful applicants access to the latest knowledge in the  field.

The student target group is those currently involved in or aspiring to become involved in higher  education,   be   it   as   administrators,   researchers,   policy-makers,   curriculum   managers,   or  consultants.     Scholarships: A number of scholarships are available.

Commencement date: July 2011.

Entrance  requirements:  a  four-year  degree  (upper  second  class  and  above)  or  its  equivalent.  Students from non-English speaking countries will be required to provide evidence (certificates)  of proficiency in English e.g. TOEFL with at least 550 points (paper-based) or 213 (computer- based),  IELTS  test  with  at  least  6.0  points,  or other qualifications  that  can  be evaluated  by the  admission committee of the programme. Demonstrated writing ability through the submission of  research  reports  or  publications  is  essential.  Practical  experience  in  Higher  Education  research,  administration and/or policy work, would be an added advantage.
