The Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has announced it has decided that all the Gambian students who received scholarship from both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of ROC (Taiwan) and the International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF) will be allowed to complete the courses they applied for.

Meanwhile, according to information gathered by this paper yesterday, the self-financing students who are there on their own accord will not be affected by this new development.

However, those who are supported through the annual bilateral project can transfer to self-financing program on their own or come back after the current semester (students on special class programs).

ROC Government will provide the aforementioned students air tickets back to The Gambia unless those otherwise request early departure.

For those who can meet the requirements of getting a degree at the end of the 2013 calendar year, they can stay until the end of the second semester.
