    In order to train global leaders who can contribute to solving various challenges in Africa, UNU-IAS has developed a practical training programme through which Japanese graduate students can take internships at partner universities and research institutions in Africa. UNU-IAS will arrange for the graduate students to be interns/researchers (2-4 on a long-term basis and 6-8 on a short-term basis) at partner universities and research institutions in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and Zambia, to acquire practical skills, knowledge, and experience. After the on-site training, the participating students will make presentations at a reporting workshop to share their experiences and lessons learned from the programme.
