Studying in the Republic of the Congo

The Republic of Congo (RC) gained independence in 1960 and experimented with Marxism for a quarter century before aborting the system and opting for a democratically elected government. Despite past civil strife, the country has remained relatively peaceful and as such is attractive to many international students.

Some international institutions such as the University of Michigan have established study abroad programs that send African Studies students to various countries including RC. Students get to visit the country and complete their course at one of the local universities ensuring learners are immersed in African culture during the duration. The University of Pennsylvania also has an established African Studies centre focussing on RC.

In 2008, the RC formed a partnership with the United Nations University (UNU) to provide expertise in disaster management and recovery. In part of this agreement the UNU pledged to strengthen links between local universities, research institutions, UNU and UFS-DiMTEC. Through this channel, interested students and researchers can enlist and contribute to the experience while completing parts of their courses.

Management and administration students who are interested in a short period abroad in RC can consider using the partnership that exists between ESGAE in RC and various international institutions. The institution signed an accord with Carm Institute of France that allows it to offer programs leading to certification by the French partner. Interested students can use this relationship to visit and study in the country. In addition to these private institutions, international students can enquire from public universities and hospital schools to identify suitable study abroad programs within the country.
