2020/2022 Overseas development Institute (ODI) Fellowship Scheme(£21,000/ Year Salary & accommodation allowance)

Published

on

The overseas Development Institute is inviting applications for the 2020-2022 Fellowship Scheme.  The deadline is December 11th, 2019.

ODI’s prestigious Fellowship Scheme gives postgraduate economists and statisticians the chance to work in developing country public sectors as local civil servants on two-year contracts.

The Scheme has two objectives:

  • to provide developing country governments with high-calibre junior economists and statisticians where there are gaps in local capacity;
  • and to give postgraduate economists and statisticians practical work experience in a developing country

The ODI Fellowship Scheme is highly competitive and extremely prestigious. ODI Fellows have gone on to make successful careers in the World Bank, the IMF, the UK’s DFID and a wide range of public and private sector organisations. ODI seeks candidates with

  • excellent academic qualifications
  • a sound grasp of applying economic and statistical theory to real world problems
  • an ability to communicate economic and statistical ideas to non-specialists
  • and a willingness to integrate into what are often very different cultural and bureaucratic environments.

Applicants will need to have completed their postgraduate degree by the time postings commence.

The Scheme is open to candidates of all nationalities provided they have a master’s degree or PhD in economics, statistics or a related discipline. Postings are determined primarily by the needs of partner governments rather than the preferences of candidates themselves.

5 affordable abroad study destinations to consider

Published

on

If you wish to pursue your education abroad, it is important to consider budget for tuition costs, costs of living and all associated expenses. If you’re on a budget, countries with high living costs should not be considered even if the tuition costs of schools are low. 

Here are 5 suitable countries to consider for individuals interested in obtaining good degrees in foreign schools while on a budget.

Malaysia

According to Vanguard News, about 13000 Nigerian students study in Malaysian universities.  It’s a study destination for Nigerians due to its low cost of living, relatively low tuition fees and global recognition of academic qualification. There is also the occasional scholarship to international students.

Tuition fees will probably set you back anywhere between 3500 Euros to 5000 Euros per year. Costs of living will most likely be anywhere between 350 Euros to 500 Euros per month.

Hungary

Hungary according to a UNESCO survey is gradually becoming a destination country for foreign education. Three quarters of  international students in Hungary come from just ten countries. Nigeria is among these ten countries. 

International students will have to pay tuition fees which usually range between 1000-3000 Euros every academic year. Also, they may need to pay registration fees which range between 40-700 Euros depending on the course chosen by a student. Cost of living in Hungary is approximately 450-500 Euros per month.

Germany

The country’s higher education system has a strong reputation and, most importantly, tuition is FREE of charge generally for many undergrad and Masters courses. 

All you have to pay is a fee of around €100 (£75) to €250 (£185) per semester, which covers administration costs as well as the work of the student union.

Life in Germany is relatively cheap compared to other countries, too. The German Academic Exchange Service recommends a monthly budget of around €800 (£595) to cover expenses, which is enough to enjoy your stay without having to pinch pennies.

Portugal

Portugal has many beautiful and interesting features that make international students simply fall in love with this country once they come here for their study experience. For one thing, you enjoy amazing weather, beautiful beaches and landscapes, lovely cuisine and fine wines.

Secondly, Portugal is one of the cheapest countries in Europe, with low living costs, and Portuguese universities offer numerous quality study programmes while charging affordable tuition fees.

Tuition fees for bachelor’s and master’s degrees average around 950-1,250 Euros per year. Cost of living is approximately 800 Euros although this can vary depending on lifestyle.

 

Luxembourg

Although it is one of the tiniest countries in the world, Luxembourg offers a splendidly cosmopolitan environment and a home to plenty of top-ranked universities.

Luxembourg is also one of the safest nations in the world; and, due to its multiculturalism, any foreign student can easily adapt to the vibrant and lively atmosphere of Luxembourg.

Tuition fees will depend on what type of course you choose to study and at what level. On average, you should expect to pay between €400 and €800 per year. For business-related studies, tuition fees are around €4,000-€5,000 per year. Cost of living is approximately 300-450 Euros.
