About the ASIM Call Africa Sustainability Infrastructure Mobility (ASIM) is the consortium of four (4) Universities (Ardhi University, Covenant University, University of Johannesburg, University of Malawi – MUBAS) and an EU Technical partner (Leeds Beckett
University) under the European Union Commission Grant on Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme Call Reference No. EACEA/07/2020. Opportunities exist in the third round for suitable qualified, and highly motivated applicants from Africa to
apply to study at any of the following institutions: UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG (South Africa), MUBAS (Malawi), ARDHI UNIVERSITY (Tanzania) and COVENANT UNIVERSITY (Nigeria).

Credit seeking is a short-term mobility leading to the recognition by the home university of the study period spent at the host university:
i.e. the educational components taken abroad by the student are recognized upon return as integrated part of the degree Programme at the home institution (either the credits awarded by the host institution are recognized and transcribed by the home institution or the home institution recognizes the learning outcomes achieved by the student as compatible for the award of the home degree).
The ASIM Project Supervisory Board (PSB) now invites applications from eligible academics for the Africa Sustainable Infrastructure
Mobility (ASIM) Credit Mobility.

The ASIM credit seeking mobility programme focuses on capacity development and short-term mobility flows of 6 months. The call is based on the urgent need to increase the talent pool of expertise in infrastructure and to develop the capacity of African Higher Education Institution (HEI) to deliver sustainable infrastructure education. The Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme supports higher education cooperation between countries in Africa and aims to promote sustainable development by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in Africa.

The Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme is set up under the Pan-African Programme (Development Cooperation Instrument) with
the primary objective of improving the skills and competencies of students and staff through enhanced mobility between African
countries.Prospective applicants should visit the link https://form.jotform.com/222061044334038 for the application guide and details of the scholarship.
