 Admission to Postgraduate studies supported by the Africa Sustainable Infrastructure Mobility (ASIM) Project

ASIM offers support for PG studies undertaken within the Built Environment at four universities, namely: University of Johannesburg, Ardhi University, Covenant University and University of Malawi – The Polytechnic, in Africa. Applicants are advised to review research areas as outlined in the ASIM research roadmap or as advertised on the four institutions’ websites. The roadmap or areas of research interest advertised by ASIM will assist in shaping and focusing your proposed research. Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is a requirement for consideration before submitting the application for admission. The EOI also shortens the application and admission time. Processing of the EOI will take no more than 10 working days from the date we receive all the documentation.
Please note that submitting an EOI does not guarantee admission nor a scholarship program.
Through this expression of interest, ASIM will collect your personal information and documentation to allow the universities to process your expression of interest to study at one of the four institutions.
