Written by Olarotimi Oshin on May 15, 2023
The Embassy of Nigeria in Cairo, Egypt is set to facilitate the transfer of Nigerian students from Sudanese universities to Egyptian universities.
In a statement on Sunday, the embassy said this was in the light of requests by both parents and students caught in the ongoing conflict in Sudan.
The embassy said that it was collaborating with the Central Administration for International Students (Wafeden), under the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to achieve this.
The embassy also cautioned students that any of them transferred to Egyptian government universities would not be eligible for an Egyptian Government Scholarship.
