UNICAF is one of the most generous scholarship Programmes available. The programme supports students that are domiciled in Africa and provides opportunities for studies towards various distance learning degree programmes awarded by European, British and American universities. Currently UNICAF provides scholarships for the online programmes offered by the University of South Wales in the UK, a Leading United Kingdom Institution, and the University of Nicosia in the EU and Marymount California University in the USA.
Students can choose either of these institutions while applying, and the application can be done by visiting www.unicaf.org/Nigeria/Scholarships.
The decline of public support for universities and at a time when student visa regulations are getting tougher, the opportunity to tap emerging markets through online delivery models is surely something universities cannot ignore. UNICAF through its bespoke partnership model is aiming to be the catalyst in online education in emerging markets such as Sub-Saharan Africa.
