Covenant University’s PG Students to Earn Leadership, French Certificates
Postgraduate students of Covenant University will soon begin to obtain Certificates in Leadership and French Language in addition to their degree certificates. The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, made this known at a meeting between the students and the University management on Monday, February 29, 2016.
This, according to the Vice-Chancellor, will give them competitive advantage in international job placement. “We have to incorporate Certificate in French in conjunction with Alliance France into our postgraduate curriculum. Fluency in spoken and written French with our Certificate in Leadership will give you advantage in employment opportunities with United Nations and its agencies,” he explained.
Also at the meeting which was organised to rub minds with the students on their welfare on campus, the Vice-Chancellor noted that from the next academic session, postgraduate students would be assigned to academic mentors to prevent them from groping in darkness as it concerns their academic and career.
“We are here to know if your expectations are being met. We are also here to encourage you about the future, to know your progress report, that is, the completion time for your programmes. Our desire is for you to finish within the scheduled time for we do not hope to have perpetual students,” the Vice-Chancellor said.
Professor Ayo also encouraged the students to maximize their stay on campus and catch a vision for their future. He said, “You need to catch a vision for yourself. For you to finish from here and be combing the street for job will be a disservice to God, yourself and the University.”
Other members of the management present at the forum were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Taiwo Abioye; Registrar, Pastor Olamide Olusegun; Director Financial Services, Pastor Bayo Oladehinbo; Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor Shalom Chinedu; Deans of Colleges; Directors of Units; members of the Board of School of Postgraduate Studies and Heads of Departments. They provided answers to various questions and comments
