    Joseph Brenyah studied with ISEP on a program at University of in 2018 from his program at the University of Ghana in 2015. He just graduated with his PhD from the University of Ghana in the Social Work Program and we are extremely proud of what he’s accomplished. ISEP’s program in Ghana has been going strong for more than a decade and helps fund a PhD student’s in the United States.

    In his own words, here is what the ISEP program meant to him:

    "As a research centre student, i needed research skills to be able to move forward in my Ph.D. career.

    I was the leading student in the maiden Ph.D. course in social policy studies and so my department gave me the slot. ISEP’s program at the University of Ghana gave a slot to centre of social policy studies, University of Ghana to produce 1 brilliant student for sponsorship in 2017. Unfortunately ISEP could not get placement for me in fall so I had the opportunity in Spring at university of Wyoming, social work department from 17th january-31st may, 2018.  I was warmly welcomed and at Wyoming. Academic works were excellent, and the people have time to take international students through every step of what they are to do

    Orientation was very detailed. Lectures were very practical and interactive. Assignments were also very frequent and presentations were the order in each day. Residence life was good except the very chilly weather of which I became used to after some time. The University of Wyoming Chinery International house checked on our activities and helped us in our academic paths. Even though all activities were very tight, I still had some time to explore the Wyoming state and this was very enjoyable

    By the sponsorship of ISEP, I had travelled for the first time to USA. I have confidence in presentations. I have worked on my accents. I have developed team work skills. I have an added research skills especially in the area of qualitative analysis and moderate quantitative analysis. I have planned of establishing a research consultancy of which I have registered the company.

    I have met different people with different background and i adopted some good practices (diversity). Through ISEP, I have had a certificated course in sexual harassment at the University of Wyoming and so good knowledge of to the right way to interact with the opposite sex. I also had a Citi certificated research course and that has given me strong research ethical consideration skills

    At Wyoming, i have able to work on four (4) papers and I have been able to publish them in journals. I have almost finished with five (5) manuscripts out of my Ph.D. research

    Currently, am a health service administrator at Komfo Anokye teaching hospital in Kumasi, Ghana. I have lecturing experience at Dominion University and a nurse’s anesthetic training school in Ghana. I have developed interest in lecturing at the university and so i will want to be in academia. Currently, am always on the USA universities websites looking for post-doctoral opportunities and lectureship vacancies in social sciences. I will also be grateful to partner ISEP in any role so that ISEP can mobilize more resources to help others



    Long live Dr. Joseph Brenyah!

    ISEP Alumni from programs around the world spanning 15 years met up at ISEP's 40th Anniversary Reception at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington D.C. on May 28. They listened to remarks by Martha Bárcena Coqui on the importance of international education. They drank traditional palomas and ate a collection of foods from regions in Mexico where ISEP has member universities.

    Studying abroad with ISEP in the United Arab Emirates was a once in a lifetime experience because I was able to affordably explore my interests in ways that wouldn't have been possible at my home university. I made a number of meaningful connections and friendships with international students, including one classmate who is an Emirati prince. The affordability of ISEP allowed me to travel throughout the region during my breaks. One of the countries I visited was Lebanon, the place of my family's heritage. I felt a deep connection to Lebanon and the Middle East region in general. My experience and the courses I was able to take helped shape my career goals of working in the international education field.
