The University of Teramo and the president of the committee 'Comitato Centenario Canonizzazione San Gabriele', Tommaso Navarra, have signed a convention for a cooperation program to admit African students to university without university taxes.
The dean of the University of Teramo, Dino Mastracola, and the president of the committee 'Comitato Centenario Canonizzazione San Gabriele', Tommaso Navarra, have signed an agreement for a cooperation program between the college and the Committee to promote training, research and student mobility in favor of the African continent. Under the convention, the university will admit African students without requiring them to pay taxes. The committee will be in charge of housing the students in Teramo, in the Abruzzo region.
Internships and training
The agreement includes internships and training for African students and students of the University of Teramo, technical training for students from African countries and the promotion of projects for Africa. The convention, said Mastrocola, is the ''first concrete step since the 'Declaration of Teramo' signed on June 22 with the conference of African deans."
Courses for African students guaranteed
The dean said that ''it is important not only to guarantee that African students have the possibility of enrolling in courses at our university'' but also to have both degrees recognized and to offer ''our students the opportunity of undertaking internships at African universities''. Thanking the University of Teramo, Tommaso Navarra hailed the importance of the first local program for ''deserving foreign students'' that will attract students to ''our city and our splendid university."
