What students think about Unicaf Scholarships

    The story of Emmanuel Okoli

    “During my studies, I learned how to think and write scientifically, research independently, use several resources and evaluate the right information. The MSc Organisational Psychology programme has helped me to widen my knowledge of human behaviour in the workplace. I developed evaluative, research, interpersonal, and analytical skills necessary for pursuing my doctoral studies. It has also broadened my view of workplace communication, relationships, interactions, leadership, management, and organisational culture. I acquired skills that will prepare me for the challenges that lie ahead.

    After graduation in 2020 with an MSc in Organisational Psychology, I immediately applied for a PhD programme in the USA. Undoubtedly, my Master’s degree from Unicaf University was my gateway to living and studying abroad. 

    Finally, I  honestly feel that this would not have been possible without Unicaf University and its scholarship programme. I strongly advise you never to lose sight of your dreams. Seize this opportunity and apply for studies at Unicaf University to gain quality education and internationally recognised qualifications that can open a path to a prosperous career.”  

    Emmanuel Okoli, Nigeria - MSc in Organisational Psychology, Unicaf University in Malawi 

    The story of Shirley Amimo

    “My Unicaf experience has been excellent so far, and the Liverpool John Moores University online Master’s programme that I have enrolled in was the best choice I have made this year. I was fortunate enough to get a generous scholarship and good guidance from my Unicaf student adviser, which, I must say, has lifted a huge burden off my shoulders. Anyone who has not tried Unicaf is missing out on getting an international quality education at an affordable cost. Online learning is very convenient, especially for people like me, who cannot attend on-campus classes or travel abroad to study.” 

    Shirley Amimo, South Sudan - MA in International Relations, Liverpool John Moores University

    The story of Mohamed Shaban EL Hamshary

    “After receiving my PMP Certification and after participating in many managerial committees inside ELSEWEDY – Electric, decided to expand my managerial knowledge and skills by studying for an MBA degree with a reputable British University such as the East London University. I was able to earn a British MBA online, at an affordable cost and without putting my career on hold, thanks to the Unicaf Scholarship Programme.”
