The Embassy of Nigeria in Cairo, Egypt has called on student returnees interested in transferring to Egyptian Universities to complete their education to send in details to the embassy.  

The embassy says it will facilitate the transfer of Nigerian students from Sudanese to Egyptian universities. The embassy, in a statement on Sunday, said this decision was based on the requests from parents and students caught in the ongoing conflict in Sudan.

The embassy added that it was working with the Central Administration for International Students (Wafeden), under the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to achieve this.

The statement reads:

“In this regard, Nigerian students from Sudanese Universities who are interested in transferring to Egyptian Universities are expected to send their full names, faculties required, academic level/year completed, transcripts of the academic years completed.

“(They should also send) passport data pages and contact details (phone number and email) to enable the embassy and the Wafeden to start working on them, before the portal for international transfers opens.”

The embassy cautioned students that any of them that transfer to Egyptian government universities would not be eligible for an Egyptian Government Scholarship.
