Dileep Kumar, the vice-chancellor of Hensard University, Toru-Orua, Bayelsa state, says graduates of the institution will earn dual certificates.
In a recent statement, Kumar said the newly established varsity has brought “distinct innovations to higher education in Nigeria”.
He said the institution is committed to giving “unique” training to its students that will transform them into “entrepreneurs and wealth creators on graduation”.
Kumar said the university will foster collaborations and partnerships with reputable institutions and industries to ensure the students gather knowledge from several points.
He said the students of Hensard varsity would be enrolled in the global student exchange programme under which they would attend lectures in universities abroad as part of their dual certification process.
He added that the students will enjoy international collaborations and partnerships while exposing them to renowned mentors and leaders in various fields, globally.
“Global academic network of lecturers and researchers, including the Diaspora Scholars Group, will use cutting-edge technology to deliver lectures in Hensard’s smart lecture halls,” the statement reads in part.
“Hensard’s Institutes and Centres of Excellence will ensure constant exposure of students to national and international seminars and conferences that will keep Hensard students abreast of the latest developments in the international knowledge space.
“Mentorship of students will be by global leaders from international and corporate advisory boards with relevant competences in the students’ fields.
“The International Board of Governors comprising global leaders in government, academia, business, and research will provide students with a unique combination of diverse mentoring experience.
“Practical Entrepreneurship Exposure while at school and Start-up Funds for Hensard graduates through the Hensard Entrepreneurship and Cooperative make Hensard unique.
“These are to be co-ordinated by the carefully selected Hensard team of international faculty and staff with vast experiences to create a truly robust academic community of students, staff, researchers, visiting academics, and global leaders who are committed to extending the frontiers of knowledge, beyond boundaries, for society’s sustenance.
“Hensard graduates will enjoy continued mentorship and support in establishing businesses of their own through the Hensard University Business Support Programme. We invite you to benefit from the Hensard Advantage.”
Henry Seriake Dickson, former governor of Bayelsa, is the chairman of the university’s board of trustees.
He established Hensard University through the Henry Seriake Dickson Foundation.
