Japa: 5 Universities in the UK and How Much They Charge Nigerians as Fees for Master's Degree
There is currently a rush to study abroad as many Nigerian students want to possess foreign certificates to increase their chances of getting jobs in the highly competitive labour market.
Others see foreign schools as the easiest means of relocating from Nigeria since it offers them the chance of becoming residents after graduation.
For these and many other reasons, many Nigerian students are making concerted efforts to gain admission into universities abroad.
The United Kingdom is one of the most preferred destinations for Nigerian students seeking to study abroad.
But the problem is that many Nigerian students do not know the school fees they are required to pay as international students.
