Dr Jennifer Ramesar, an undergraduate medical training convenor in the Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences, was recently chosen as the UCT representative in the African Higher Education Harmonisation and Tuning Project, known as Tuning Africa. The initiative is part of the Africa-European Union partnership to enhance degree comparability, graduate mobility and employability. Tuning Africa will be piloted for 18 months and focuses on five areas: medicine, teacher education, agriculture, mechanical engineering and construction engineering. Each of the five African regions will lead one subject, in which 12 universities will be involved, and at least one of the universities must come from every other region. UCT is involved in medicine, which is led by northern Africa.
