A student at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) has enrolled on three tertiary education programmes
Mike Sibangani Lungu, a 19-year-old Chitungwiza student is currently doing three tertiary education programmes including Bachelors in Political Science and Diplomacy at the University of Zimbabwe, a Diploma in Journalism and Communication studies and a Diploma in International Diplomacy and NGO’s with Christian College of Southern Africa (CCOSA).
Mike was in the news not so long ago after writing his A-Level in nine months instead of two years. He told The Herald:
I managed to do Advanced Level in nine months thus have resolved to continue making more to the academic by breaking national records to continue raising my country’s flag high.
I am doing Political Science Diplomacy, International Communication Diplomacy and NGO’s and Journalism.
This is so after also realised that the burden of doing one programme was too small for me to carry.
I believe I am gifted in arts subjects from a young age as I would write some literature since 7 years.
This enabled me later to write novels, historical books and write A-Level exams in less than a year.
I did three programmes at a time to distinguish myself from my contemporaries as well as adding value to the academic record as a teenager who come from a poor background.
He added that he was the best student in examinations at CCOSA in the previous semester after scoring three distinctions and also scored high also at UZ for Political Science and Diplomacy.
Mike says his wish is to study towards a Law degree as well as a Master’s degree and PhD in Politics and International Relations at Oxford or Harvard University.
Recently, Mike got help after opening up about his daily travel to the University of Zimbabwe on foot.
