The two-week long course is among the required cross cutting courses for PhD students to expand their academic and practical comprehension of the concepts of science, knowledge and research; acquaint the students with the philosophical principles behind the quantitative and qualitative methods of research; enhance the students’ awareness about ethical conflicts in relation to research; and provide a forum for each student to discuss, and improve their own research proposals.

Fifty five (55) PhD candidates are attending the course. Of these, thirty seven (37) participants are from Makerere University. The others are from the partner public universities.
