The African Doctoral Academy (ADA), housed within the Africa Centre for Scholarship (ACS) serves to coordinate and strengthen excellence in doctoral education at Stellenbosch University (SU) and across the African continent. The ADA’s bi-annual, two-week long Doctoral Schools take place every year in Summer (January) and Winter (June-July) and aim to offer high impact research and methodology training, as well as options in academic preparedness and career development. The Schools are open to doctoral candidates, their supervisors and researchers in general. Each week offers a number of workshops taking place concurrently and offers an intense and concentrated training opportunity by experts in their fields. With delegates hailing from South Africa, Africa and beyond, these Doctoral Schools are an opportunity to network with fellow delegates and lecturers and exchange ideas and knowledge during the formal classes, additional extra-curricular classes open to all delegates and the social evenings each week
