Southern African Rurality in Higher Education
The SARiHE project is working with student co-researchers across three South African universities – the University of Johannesburg, Rhodes University and the University of Fort Hare. The co-researchers are documenting their prior learning in rural areas and their experience as university students, as well as how they negotiated the transition to higher education. The research will make significant contributions to the concept of rurality, widening participation, equity, social justice and post-colonial curricula in higher education across Southern Africa and more widely across the global south.
This 30 month collaborative project is jointly funded by the ESRC and the NRF and is led by the University of Bristol and the University of Johannesburg.
