The British Council has announced its 3rd annual Education UK Postgraduate Exhibition 2015 taking place in Abuja on the 4th of November 2015 and in Lagos on 6th & 7th of November 2015.
The exhibition is designed for prospective students interested in an international education at the postgraduate level. It provides a platform for the students to meet one on one with representatives of 30 UK institutions and get direct advice on the opportunities available to them for study in the UK.
Each year, students from Nigeria study in the UK, joining close to two million local students from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, plus around 500,000 other international students from 200 countries.
Sephora Imomoh, Project Manager at the British Council explains why the UK is such a popular destination for international students. “The UK’s excellent reputation for education leads to internationally recognised qualifications, with the result that students can look forward to good career prospects when they return home”.
Imomoh further states “With a strong reputation for research, innovation and creativity, UK universities and colleges attract some of the world’s leading academics and industry professionals. Students are encouraged to express their ideas and think for themselves”.
