UNICAF students in Lagos, Nigeria were invited to a social event, on July 15th, held at a nice café in town, to meet and interact with fellow students. The main purpose of this get together was to encourage UNICAF students to exchange experiences and ideas and to instill in them the sense of belonging to a large and friendly family: the UNICAF community, now firmly present in nine different countries and continuing to expand.
The get together was organised by the UNICAF representative in Nigeria Vincent Okeke and was an opportunity to meet, network and enjoy a delicious lunch together. Lots of photographs and videos were taken to commemorate the day. To break the ice, Vincent first asked all students present to introduce themselves and mention which study programme they are pursuing, with which partner university. After the introductions a lively discussion ensued about UNICAF and its procedures, from application to online delivery of study material and contact with tutors; it was obvious that all students present felt satisfied with the service UNICAF provides.
They also expressed their gratitude for the UNICAF Scholarship Programme, which was instrumental in enabling them to enroll to study towards the degree of their choice. The students exchanged mobile phone numbers and email addresses to keep in touch in the future, and thanked UNICAF for the great time they had.
