  1. This is indeed a very wonderful gesture and an opportunity to graduate students to be impowered strategically for global capacity building. Thanks for your magnanimity.

    1. Thank you for your message Dear Babatunde.

      Please read the application guidelines well and see the courses listed there.

      However, there is no harm in trying. So you can also apply.

      Best regards

  2. Good morning, please does it mean that undergraduates are not to apply. Sir, i please I need more clarifications, thanks.

  3. Thanks Dr Orji for this wonderful opportunity. I want to ask the summary of the work will it be it abstract form or proposal form. Mine is a PhD thesis and am still at the proposal level.

    1. Dear Stanley,
      Please go through their website and read up the details.

      You can send the abstract and full paper since it’s a conference but I am not too sure since I am not one of the organisers.

      Sorry for that.

      Thank you
