This report provides an analysis of documents, interviews, lecture observations and student focus groups conducted in October 2009 at three institutions in Zimbabwe: Harare Polytechnic, Midlands State University (MSU) and the National University of Science and Technology (NUST). It forms part of the Gender In Media Education in Southern Africa (GIME): the most comprehensive study yet undertaken of the gender dimensions of journalism and media education and training in tertiary institutions in Southern Africa. The GIME study took place in 25 institutions in 13 countries including Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe between October 2009 and April 2010. Gender Links (GL) undertook the study through the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC), a partnership between media development organisations and knowledge institutions.

For this research, a total of 43 individuals were interviewed, comprising six staff (three male and three female); and 37 students. Of the students, 51% of respondents were female.
