AGENCIES for overseas education, Global Education Link Ltd, yesterday brought together parents and students who are due to fly outside the country to pursue their studies in different higher learning institutions in China and India with one important objective: giving assurance to them that they are safe.
Global Education Link Ltd is an agency dealing in recruitment of students for overseas colleges and universities – including educating them on among other things, fees, weather, language and students’ interests.
At Mwalimu Nyerere Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam, the agency’s Executive Director, Mr Abdulmalik Mollel, said that he decided to call parents and students who will soon be leaving the country so that they could clear all the doubts before they leave the country.
According to Mr Mollel, his agency has so far helped the facilitation of over 5,400 students to pursue various courses outside the country.
Yesterday, Global Link Limited’s staff was available to make sure that all the students and parents who attended the one-day workshop were walking out of the room with great satisfaction.
“There might be some parents who are not quite sure if their children are safe outside the country, their accommodation, and their safety outside the country, I believe that all the doubts will be cleared after today’s function,’’ he said.
At the function, several papers and testimonials were given by people who studied abroad, including a prominent psychologist, Dr Chris Mauki.
Also in attendance was Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU), Public Relations Officer, Mr Edward Mkaku. Mr Mkaku said that all the students who had been given the green light by the Global Link Ltd since they started operations in the country, had met all the required conditions and issued with a no objection certificate.
By acquiring the certificate, it means that the universities and colleges they go to pursue their studies meet all the criteria required by TCU.
