Credit Students (merit og tilvalgsstuderende)
African Studies provides MERITSTUDERENDE and TILVALGSSTUDERENDE from other studies an opportunity to gain insight into Africa's social, developmental, cultural and religious conditions, and also offers the opportunity to learn the African language Kiswahili. The programme is in English and the study environment is international. Credit students are eligible to apply for courses at Centre of African Studies after having passed 2 years of exams (120 ECTS) at their faculty. You can choose from the range of thematic courses, as well as Kiswahili - but you cannot sign up for compulsory courses or internship and fieldwork.
