We invited members with Further Education or Higher Education (FEHE) links to take part in a discussion chaired by Dr Yonah Matemba of the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).
On Thursday 29th November, the FEHE Forum met at the University of Strathclyde to discuss active Scotland-Malawi university and education links with members and hear general updates from a number of leading academic institutions.
Dr Yonah Matemba and Dr Peter Mtika presented on the issue of accreditation and the appropriate UK equivalence of Malawian qualifications. Mostafa Al-Mossallami will provide an update on DFID’s work in Further & Higher Education.
Further & Higher Education institutions in Scotland also offered a snapshot of their work in Malawi and we heard from Malawian students about their experience of studying in Scotland, with additional time for networking at the end.
