Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to assist future leaders to develop and formulate public policy in the African context and to find solutions to public policy problems on the African continent. The programme will allow students to develop a public policy toolkit of analytical approaches that will enable them to explore the intricacies of social problems in Africa; understand how public decisions are made; devise thoughtful responses to policy problems and manage the challenges that arise when solutions are implemented. The programme will equip both aspiring and current public service professionals as well as civil society leaders with the tools to formulate and analyse policy, lead and manage organisations and teams.


Admission Requirements

The student’s entry point into the PGDip (Public Policy and African Studies) depends upon either the successful completion of the Center of Public Policy and African Studies’s Continuing Education Programme in Public Policy and African Studies (60% overall requirement) or 60% in an undergraduate degree in Political Science, International Relations or in a related field on NQF Level 7.
