Coventry University is launching a new Africa Centre. The launch will celebrate its Nigerian students and alumni on the occasion of their country’s 60th independence. 

Coventry University’s International Office is working in partnership with Big Ideas’ Nigeria60 programme to share 60 alumni stories celebrating the strong connections between the University and Nigerian diaspora students.

From the top 60 alumni, special awards will be presented to participants who have made an outstanding impact in their professional or personal journeys.

Timeline of events:

This competition will close on the 18 October, but you are advised to get your application in sooner than the closing date as public voting to shortlist applications will run from 12-17 October.
After public voting closes, winners will be selected from the shortlist by an esteemed panel of judges from 18-21 October.
All alumni who share their story will be invited to attend a special event on 22 October 2020.

About the African Centre:

The Coventry University African Centre will be a platform for scholarship, community and leadership, strengthening collaborations with Africa Universities, civil society and other relevant public and corporate institutions, leading discussions and interfacing with African education and culture.
