The Director of Policy at the Ministry of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Mr Tuaunda Keeja, has been invited to participate in a visit to Germany, themed “Germany as a location for study and research”. The visit takes place from 12 until 18 November 2017 and is part of the Visitors Programme of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Together with journalists, education and labour market experts from around the world, Mr Keeja will be presented Germany’s policy on university-level education and promoting research with a focus on framework conditions for foreign students and researchers.
