Studying in Angola

Studying in Angola promises a great experience for students aiming to integrate into the nation’s development agenda. Angola is the second largest petroleum producer in Africa and has a fast growing economy. In addition to petroleum, Angola has significant mineral reserves and also produces agricultural imports. Having recovered from an enduring civil war in 2002, Angola is keen on re-establishing its tertiary institutions.

Prior to the war the Agostinho Neto University was the only university in the country with campuses in the capital and all provinces. The post war government transformed the six campuses outside Luanda into autonomous universities.

In addition to these autonomous institutions an interesting opportunity managed by the Centre of Excellence in Science for Sustainability in Africa (CESSAF). The program which was launched this year will provide fully funded scholarship PHD programs designed to promote teaching and sustainability for Angola and Sub Saharan Africa. This program is run in partnership with the University of Newcastle will take 100 African students through teaching internships at New Castle and Agostinho Neto Universities.

In addition, the close working sector relations with multinationals in Angola will see students get internships with corporate partners, which include fieldwork, and project visits. This is a great for people looking to migrate and will build exposure to the corporations in Angola and an understanding of the national issues and approach to these issues.

As a nation rebuilds opportunity often emerges for individuals interested in long or medium term openings. Studying in Angola can create such opportunity for individuals who select the correct institutions and share a common interest with the national objectives.
