“Student advisers must have a good command of the English language, full understanding of the processes and programmes on offer, be able to empathise with applicants, be able to multitask, create rapport with applicants and follow all procedures as requested.“
UNICAF staff in Zambia recently attended an exciting barbecue party at Precious Moments Lodge in Lusaka. The aim was to bond, get to know each other better and build a team spirit. They ate delicious food, drank beer and laughed a lot. They played games as well. Soccer and the Zambian version of dodgeball. UNICAF Marketing Officer Valerie Chama’s team won the soccer game, beating the team of Professor Sinjela, Rector of Unicaf University, while Anthony Chanda, UNICAF Marketing Manager was the champion of dodgeball.
“The best reward that we have while interacting with an applicant is when they thank us for advising and guiding them through the application process, all the way until they enroll on the degree programme they have selected. It feels good when someone appreciates you for the good job you are doing.”
UNICAF invited Ugandan students to meet in a nice café in Kampala to get to know each other and to network. 10 students, doing University of Nicosia degree programmes through UNICAF, met on July 15th and had a great time talking about their experiences. After coffee and snacks the group expressed their joy and gratitude for this opportunity to meet with fellow UNICAF students in Uganda. They even wrote down their remarks on coloured sticky notes, took photographs of the event and expressed their satisfaction and pride for being a UNICAF student in video testimonials.
