Group wants Nigerians to access cheap, quality education in Indian varsities
As the 2016/17 academic year opens in Indian varsities with enrolment for academic programmes underway, ahead of commencement of classes in July/August, the need for Nigerian youths yearning for international education at highly reduced cost to look that way has been stressed.
According to Edusoft Associates, a leading provider of university admission services, which works with some of the best universities in India, with the increasing difficulties in accessing foreign exchange, and the high-fee regimes in most countries that Nigerians have traditionally looked up to for quality education, seeking equally good alternatives in the Asian country has become even more imperative.
“Nigerians have realised that they can actually study in world-class universities at a fraction of the fees charged by schools in the United Kingdom and the United States. Since degrees acquired in universities in India are at par with schools in the UK and the US, we have in the last three years seen an upsurge in the number of Nigerians studying in universities in India,” said Chief Executive Officer of Edusoft Associates Limited, Mr. Badri Prasad.
Some of the major attractions this year include the availability of scholarship to select students, siblings’ discounts in which one sibling pays the full fee and the other receiving huge discount on fees, transfer of credits from schools in the UK and the US to continue studying in India at a fraction of the fees in the previous school, including work opportunities for postgraduate students.
Prasad said, “Education is increasingly becoming competitive globally. Universities in India have built the infrastructure and faculty to provide quality education to people from across the world.”
The chief executive, who informed that Nigerians can study any course of their choice, ranging from the medical sciences to engineering and social sciences, added, “What we do at Edusoft Associates is to avail our professional experience to intending students to help them chose the course that best fits their career goal, and thereafter our wide network to select the school that best meets this need.”
The major admission requirement, he added, is credit level passes in five subjects. No foundational, A-Level or entrance examinations are required.
