UCC Postgraduate Students on Exchange Programme in Norway

Five postgraduate students of the Department of History are on exchange programme at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) for a semester.

The exchange programme forms part of the Norpart Project between NTNU and three universities in Ghana namely Department of History, UCC, Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies and the Department of History, University of Ghana.

The beneficiary students are Mr. Bruno Osafo, PhD candidate, Ms. Justina Akansor, Mrs. Julian Mensah Quaye, Mr. Kingsley Agyapong and Mr. Paul Kofi Dadzie all M. Phil candidates.

It would be recalled that the Department of History won a five-year project from the Norwegian Partnership Programme for Global Academic Cooperation (NORPART) to facilitate faculty and graduate student exchanges.

The project, which commences from 2017 to 2021, will provide support for academic partnerships and student mobility with an emphasis on Master and PhD level between higher education institutions in Norway and others selected from developing countries. With financial support from the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education, the project will also include the design of new graduate programmes and organisation of conferences and workshops.
