The course will be held at the Waterford Kamhlaba UWC in eSwatini from December 29, 2018 – January 12, 2019. The location is pivotal to the course—being in eSwatini gives us unique insight into both the promises and pitfalls of development.
The course is facilitated by a diverse and professional team from around the world, most of whom are alumni of UWC schools or short courses themselves. In addition to academic expertise, they also have on-the-ground experience working in development.
Special features of the course:
For questions about the programme, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The course costs 800 EUR (600 EUR for African residents), with some scholarships available, especially for participants from developing countries. The fee includes room and board for the duration of the course, transfers to and from Johannesburg airport, and all community visits and other activities. It does not include airline tickets to and from Johannesburg.
Please note that it is cheapest and most efficient to fly to Johannesburg rather than directly to eSwatini. We will pick up and drop all international students to the airport.
Some financial aid is available for participants with demonstrated need, and we will provide advice and support to all participants wishing to raise funds for their participation. Please note all applicants are welcome to apply for scholarships to cover programme costs, but travel scholarships are only available for students applying from Africa.
