The Structure of the Program
SSM's PhD is a 3-year program. Year 1 is for coursework, and developing your research proposal. In year 2, you collect and analyze your data. Year 3 is for the finishing touch: write-up and thesis defense. The responsibility for the program rests with our partner universities, who are responsible for the complete educational process, from application to graduation, and accreditation.
Students benefit from a unique support structure to developed by StatMind. Research Labs that work under the umbrella of our partner universities give students high-level advice on literature review, methodological issues and data analysis.
Admission to PhD programs co-developed by StatMind and LGSB with partner universities, is via the partner universities who are responsible for these programs and who will award the degrees.

PhD projects at our partner universities that fit in with StatMind's research agenda on social and economic development in Africa, can benefit from our Round Table Africa (RTA) scholarship. The RTA scholarship pays up to 60% of the normal fees set by our partner universities.
