Turkey offers Nigerian students scholarships


Nigerian students willing to study in Turkey have been offered 90 per cent scholarship and access to admission in over 80 government-owned universities in the country.

Examinations for admission into the programme have been scheduled to hold in Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Republic of Benin and Kenya between May 1 and 27.

Goodmus Learning Centre in Lagos had earlier acquired the licence to recruit students in Nigeria and other African countries for the scholarship programme and is the only licenced agent empowered to recruit and facilitate the 90 per cent scholarship the Turkish Government has offered Nigerian students wishing to study in the country.

The scholarship followed a bilateral agreement on international education between the Nigerian and Turkish governments.

Chief Executive of Goodmus Learning Centre, Badmus Adekunle, said the scholarship was aimed at reducing the huge cost of studying abroad by Nigerians in pursuit of higher education.

A professor of Veterinary Medicine of Uludag University, Turkey, Ilker Arican, said the scholarship was part of the educational bilateral agreements between Nigeria and Turkey.
