The University of Botswana was this week among 35 exhibitors that participated in the 5th Edition of the Agency for National Human Resource Development (ANHRD) Public Awareness Session in Seychelles.
Participation by the University of Botswana in the Seychelles' Public Awareness Education Fair 2020 in the Mahe Island’s City is part of its efforts to position itself as the University of Choice in southern Africa.
This was the second time the University of Botswana participated in the fair following a successful campaign in 2019 which brought together 15 institutions of higher learning from across the world including Malaysia, Mauritius and Botswana to showcase their products and services.
Out of the 35 exhibitors that participated this year eight were from Seychelles while 27 were from abroad from countries such Botswana, Malaysia, Canada, & South Africa. We also have the participation of embassies and consulates from the United States, Mauritius, Japan and France.
Hundreds of prospective applicants from secondary schools, professional centres, university students and in-service candidates who were interested in continuing their studies or begin training at various levels attended the aware session, marking Seychelles’ quest to remain globally competitive by investing and availing training opportunities to its citizens across the world.
Consequently, ANHRD organises such events to provide students and members of the public with first-hand information on different training opportunities on offer and different fields of study at institutions approved by ANHRD among them the University of Botswana.
For the second year running, University of Botswana had its graduation valedictorians coming from Seychelles. The 2018 valedictorian, Jocelyne Mary-Jane Dogley, is now a teacher in the island of Mahe while Ms Tania Innocente Bellard from the Praslin Island, the second largest Island of the Seychelles archipelago, is the 2019 valedictorian.
