The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS), has paid a visit to the Hungarian Embassy in Ghana, to discuss comprehensively the conditions of Ghanaian students studying in Hungary, and how the Union can better relate with them.
The delegation from NUGS led by its President, Mr. Tinkaro Asare Osei, was met by David Bekesi, Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy of Hungary.
The visit was necessary because there is a bilateral relationship between the Ghanaian and Hungarian Governments on education to fully fund fifty (50) Ghanaian students to study in Hungary annually.
The contract was signed in the year 2016, and by far, one hundred and fifty (150) students have benefited, ranging from undergraduate to doctorate degrees of which some have graduated.
This year, fifty (50) more students will get the opportunity to study in Hungary as beneficiaries of the bilateral relationship existing between the two countries.
The Union, having had series of engagements with the Ghanaian students in Hungary, is determined to further enhance the relationship between the two governments for the benefit of more Ghanaian students.
The Embassy also finds it important to make sure that the students are further involved in the bilateral activities in their study-related sectors.
The NUGS President, Tinkaro Asare Osei, commended the Hungarian Government and made mention of some of the feedback the Union has received from the students in Hungary.
He further stated it will be in the best interests of the Union for both governments to increase the number to a hundred as H.E. Péter Szijjártó, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary projected for the year 2020 and beyond.
“The Union is committed to engaging the Ghanaian Government to that effect in order to meet the requirements. Creating a magnificent relationship between the Union and the Ghanaian students in Hungary, is again a topmost priority for this administration” he added.
Mr. Tinkaro lastly sought the help of the Embassy to help create a link between the largest student union in Hungary, and NUGS, all in the spirit of building quality student leadership through sharing the experiences and knowledge of leadership of both countries.
The Deputy Head of Mission, Mr. David Bekesi, was excited to meet the delegation, and assured the delegation of the Embassy’s commitment to ensuring that beneficiaries of this educational opportunity are given the maximum attention and benefits they require.
He further stated that their doors are always opened to assist the Union in communicating with the Ghanaian students in Hungary.
“NUGS is always committed to helping students who would want to study outside our home country with the hope that after their return they will be successful builders and leaders of the nation” he noted.
