The Hungarian Ambassador to Ghana, András Szabós, has paid a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, to congratulate him on his appointment as Vice-Chancellor. Present at the meeting was Professor Kwame Offei, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (ASA).

Ambassador András Szabós announced Hungary’'s numerous educational opportunities and the government of Hungary’'s offer of "“Stipendium Hungarian"”, a scholarship programme that would assist fifty Ghanaians yearly to acquire high quality expertise from Hungarian universities.  He mentioned that the Embassy of Hungary has been re-opened, and emphasized Hungary'’s strong relationship with and contribution to Ghana through various partnerships. 

The Ambassador further presented a proposal on bilateral agreements with relevant Hungarian universities in areas such as agriculture, technology, sports, and medicine. Students who will qualify for such studies will be provided with the opportunity to undertake a language preparatory study of the Hungarian language here in Ghana before going to Hungary.  The proposal also covers the completion of the University of Ghana sports stadium with local and Hungarian participation.

The Vice-Chancellor in welcoming the delegation said he was confident that the proposal would enhance teaching and learning in both the University of Ghana and universities in Hungary.
