If all goes as planned, the University of the Gambia Students’ Union will enter a memorandum of understanding with their counterparts at the Nouakchott University on significant interest of both parties.
During the recent Mauritania research trip of UTG Economic and Management Students’ Association (ECOMANSA), students held a successful meeting with Nouakchott University student leaders and administrative officials on the need for the two Unions to sign an MOU and enhance collaborations in areas of exchange visits and greater student unionism.
In an interview with The Stone Circle about this development, The Secretary General of ECOMANSA, Jesse J. Dacosta, said:
“The proposed MOU is about having graduates of both universities involved in an exchange program where they will seek to further their education and work at the Nouakchott University, the same applies to the University of The Gambia.”
