Following a long and successful partnership with CARTA, the Obafemi Awolowo University’s postgraduate college leadership has expressed interest in increasing the scope of the CARTA curriculum. The Nigerian University is a beneficiary of a project to strengthen the research capacity of doctoral students and supervisors. The project tagged “Intervention towards strengthening Research Training in OAU” has been praised for its contribution to the curriculum review of postgraduate programmes in the university.
Prof. Yetunde Ajibade, the Provost at the Postgraduate College, in a letter to CARTA said that he could attest to the remarkable impact of the intervention. “I want to express the readiness of the postgraduate college to scale the curriculum to a wider audience of postgraduate students in Obafemi Awolowo University,” she stated.
She added that the board of the college has considered, and the university senate has approved the introduction of a compulsory methodology course for all doctoral candidates in the university and that “more efforts are ongoing to further institutionalize the CARTA curriculum and we greatly crave further support from CARTA in ensuring the actualization of this goal for the wider benefit of students at the university.”
