MANAGEMENT ENLARGES LINKAGE PROGRAMME

In a swift response to feedback from guardians,the Management of GUU has announced the enlargement of the institution’s linkage programme with selected universities in the US.According to a press statement from the Registrar Dr Austin Orisakwe,this became necessary to ensure the accommodation of every desiring scholar that wants to participate in the programme.

While reiterating the school management’s initial plan of using the linkage exercise to expose 200 level scholars only to the distinguishing peculiarities of studying abroad,Dr Orisakwe stated that the programme has now been redesigned to ¬†accommodate all categories of scholars.

He revealed that arrangements are currently being concluded with such GUU partner ¬†universities as Morehouse College Atlanta and Tuskegee University Alabama both in the United States of America for a smooth take-off of the programme in the summer of 2015.Furthermore,he explained that the exercise couldn’t commence this year as earlier planned due to poor response from scholars.He therefore requested guardians of desiring scholars to commence early registration for their wards.

GUU Newsletter correspondent reports that news of the expansion of the exchange programme was met with cheers and commendation from the scholars who expressed happiness at the opportunity of benefiting from the exercise.They however enjoined GUU management to consider the prospect of extending the coverage of the exchange programme to include schools in Europe and Canada.
