Tanzania-German Centre for Postgraduate Studies (TGCL)
The three year curriculum of the PhD programme includes a thesis and selected courses. Students who perform excellently will have the opportunity to participate in a summer academy in Bayreuth, Germany.
The PhD in Forced Migration Studies is by research alone and generally requires no course work. Successful doctoral applicants must have a strong under-graduate degree and masters qualification, a substantive background in a forced migration-related field, and a demonstrated ability to conduct methodologically sound, independent research (academic or otherwise). Strong students who do not meet all of these qualifications may be admitted on the condition that they register for a research methods course and/or the core course.
The Research Unit on Migration and Society (Unité de recherche Migrations et société URMIS) is a University and CNRS research centre located in Paris (University Paris 7 Denis Diderot) and Nice (University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis). It comprises 27 researchers from different disciplines (sociology, anthropology, contemporary history, social psychology).
