The exchange agreement which was signed by the two university presidents, allows two of our AUN students to study in London on full scholarship for one semester. While there, the students will undertake their Major courses and return in Spring 2017 to continue at AUN. Wogu and Madwatte are the first AUN students to participate in the Richmond study abroad opportunity.
On August 26, a send-forth for the two students was attended by President Ensign, Provost LeGene Quesenberry, and some faculty members from SAS and SBE who took turns to address both students on what they can expect from their semester abroad, as well as what AUN expects of them as ambassadors of the University.
The President stressed that the scholarship is the result of AUN's hard work in developing strong partnerships with sister universities in the Association of American International Colleges and Universities (AAICU), of which AUN is a member. She urged the students to justify the confidence reposed in them by the selection committee and be good ambassadors of AUN.
Interim Associate Dean of SAS, Dr. Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob, said with AUN's membership of the AAICU and the Global Liberal Arts Alliance, our students have the opportunity to spend up to two semesters abroad at 48 universities across 27 countries. Dr. Jacob, who also leads AUN's internationalization program, said any student in good academic standing is eligible to study abroad.
Expression of Interests forms for Study Abroad can be obtained from Ms. Martha Sambe in the President's Office.
