Make a Change

Contribute towards Food and Nutrition Security
and Climate Change Adaptation
and Mitigation in the region.
The MS FSCC involves a compulsory mobility of students within the partner universities.
Thus, each MS FSCC student will be enrolled in two universities, be supervised jointly by professors from these universities,
and have a joint thesis defense. Students will also attend summer schools that will serve as enhancement courses for the MS FSCC.
More so, the ERASMUS+ funding provides opportunity for excellent students to go on mobility to the EU partners.
