The US scholar made this announcement to Angolan journalists in the end of a visit to the state-owned Agostinho Neto University (UAN) Campus, where she learnt about the institution’s functioning.

Martinez Alexandre said that the activity aimed at learning about the level of functioning of the UAN and identifying areas for possible co-operation agreements, to make way for Angolan students to get trained in Harvard University.

       

According to the official, Harvard University is analysing the possibility to have Angolan students join its master’s and doctor’s courses.

Martinez Alexandre said to journalists that so far there is no agreement in this respect with any Angolan university, but the two sides can now start to think of ways to materialise this goal.

She also explained that Harvard students come from various social backgrounds, from the public and private sectors, whom, after graduation, can be advisors for governmental or international institutions.  

On her turn, the Principal of the Agostinho Neto University (UAN), Maria Bragança Sambo, emphasised that the meeting served to exchange experiences in the academic field, including aspects relating to the promotion of the English language in Angola.

In her visit to the UAN Campus, Martinez Alexandre was accompanied by the US ambassador to Angola, Helen La Lime.
