HC Deb 30 June 1960 vol 625 cc146-7W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities are available for African students in the territories of East and Central Africa for which he is responsible who wish to pursue post-graduate studies.

Mr. Iain Macleod

African postgraduate students can be accepted at the University College of East Africa at Makerere, where suitable arrangements could be made, dependent on the subject to be studied. If the hon. Member will inform me of the specific post-graduate studies in which he is interested I will ascertain whether such studies can be pursued there. Opportunities for Africans to take post-graduate courses do, of course, exist in the United Kingdom and other countries outside East Africa. In the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, higher education is a responsibility of the Federal Government.
