Summer School still a Global learning platform

A group of four European and one Namibian students received certificates after successfully completing the Poly’s annual Summer School held over the past month.

The Poly signed an agreement with the Organisation for African-European Culture and Educational Exchange (VAEA) to host the annual Summer School at the Poly. 

The Summer School promotes intercultural integration by exposing European students to various Namibian industries and cultures in a theoretical and practical manner. This year students from Germany, Slovenia and Namibia attended the school which saw a drop in student numbers because of foreign students’ fear of the Ebola virus. 


The syllabus is tailor-made specifically for international students and includes subjects such as, ‘A Profile of Namibian Economy,’ ‘State, Government and Politics,’ and ‘Doing Business in Africa (with emphasis on Namibia and SADC countries).’ 

During the certificate handing over ceremony, Kofi Boamah, Dean of the School of Management Sciences, urged the participants to be ambassadors for the Poly wherever they went. He emphasised the fact that Namibia is Ebola-free and students visiting the country should inform their peers about this. 

Markus Strasser, VAEA Organiser, thanked the Poly for successfully organising meetings and visits with local industries and lectures for the students.
