Research Courses

So far, I have joined three courses. Every minute of the course was really amazing. After you finish day one, you say Oh Gosh why don’t we go into the topics of day two, the same, same day.
(Ummulkhair Mustafa, PhD Student_Tanzania).

Consulting Courses

I found the course materials incredibly impressive in terms of their depth and breadth. They encompassed everything from launching your research consulting business to expertly negotiating your fees and efficiently managing clients. The course was well-structured, and the materials were easy to follow.
(Dr. Kapongola Nganyanyuka (PhD) Tanzania)


The program presented a rare and unique opportunity of learning and practicing at the same time, but most importantly on my side, I was learning from a mentor who I consider among the best around research and project consultation.
(Hassan Kihanzah, Mentee, Tanzania)
