Admissions tests and preparation

Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.

Some colleges have more rigorous acceptance processes than others. Students can ensure that they are ready for anything by engaging in admissions tests and preparation. Such classes are available for broad admittance procedures or for specific major programs.

Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.
