Peace and Security Fellowship for African Women

Certificate | Application Period: Open

Successful Fellows will have the status of full-time students on the post-graduate non-degree programme at ALC/King’s College London.

  1. Standard Visitor visa: The offer of the Fellowship is subject to successful candidates obtaining visas to cover the six-month period that is the duration of the first phase of the Fellowship in the UK and Kenya. Failure to obtain a visa to enter the UK and Kenya automatically invalidates the offer of Fellowship with no consequences to the Fellowship Programme. The immigration rules for the UK can be accessed on the Gov.UK web page: https://www.gov.uk/standard-visitor-visa/overview. Please contact the Kenyan Embassy/High Commission in your home country for the relevant procedures to obtain a Kenyan student visa for the entire Fellowship period of one year. Please, note that any deviation from the Fellowship, except as may be authorised by the African Leadership Centre, shall affect the Fellow’s immigration status in the UK/Kenya. Please consult the British Embassy/High Commission and Kenyan Embassy/High Commission in your home country for more information.
  2. Expectant/Nursing mothers: Given the intense nature of the programme including its short phases in different locations as well as necessary extensive travel, successful applicants that are expectant or nursing mothers while encouraged to apply, will be advised to defer their admission to the programme
  3. Medical Exam: Successful applicants will be required to undergo medical examinations at recommended venues prior to taking up their positions, in order to aid visa applications and to confirm your fitness for undertaking the programme.
  4. Programme completion/Return to base: The programme will last a total of 12 months, and Fellows will be expected to make full-time commitment to the programme for its duration. It is a condition of the programme that successful candidates should return to their base or home countries at the end of the programme.
