The Ministry of Higher Education ran a five days workshop to train writers as part of the 'English for University Project'. The EUR Project was started in 2014 with a consultation  visit by international writer Terry Philips. The main objective of the project is to design and write standardized text books for teaching English as a university requirement in Sudanese governmental universities. The first text book is scheduled to appear on the first of April 2017. Book one is at A2 level and is targeted to be taught in 45 contact hours
