The Embassy of Nigeria in Cairo, Egypt is 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 parents and students caught in the ongoing conflict in Sudan.

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

“In this regard, Nigerian students from Sudanese Universities interested in transferring to Egyptian Universities are expected to send their full names, faculties required, academic level/year completed, and 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 transferred to Egyptian government universities would not be eligible for an Egyptian Government Scholarship.

It also provided a link for the transfer for interested students to fill and attach the required documents between May and June in order to join the 2023/2024 academic session commencing in September.
