Former scholar Babette Tchonang: "Before the programme I was confused about some knowledge in general oceanography. Having completed the programme, I feel more confident when talking the general oceanography. This was my first reason to attend the programme (to learn more about my discipline which is physical oceanography and to learn more about other disciplines of oceanography. Through the programme I increased my knowledge in scientific writing and presentation, I had opportunities to attempt several field works (it was amazing for me). I really want to thank all the lectures and especially you Eva and your team for their time and great considerations towards us as scholars.]...[. For me it was , it's and it will be for ever a great privilege to have been under this programme training. It went beyond my expectation and I'm for ever grateful to all the team organizers of this great training."
