Sabbatical and Research Attachment Programme
The Sabbatical and Research Attachment programmes were initiated in the early 1980s to support the Nigerian Academia in acquiring oil industry experience.
Open to academic staff of Nigerian universities who have attained the position of Senior Lecturer and above, the programme offers them an opportunity to conduct studies on exploration and production challenges and to work on assignments that add value to Company business.
Through this programme, university lecturers gain useful experience and exposure to new technologies that they would take back to the classroom, thus enabling the transfer of new concepts in the industry as well as the latest technologies to students. To date, 320 Professors, Associate Professors, Senior Lecturers and postgraduate students have benefited from the programnes.
