hello..been following this thread for sometime now, pls i need ur candid advice. i will be 27 by september this year, an undergraduate of chemical engineering in one of the federal universities in Nigeria here. Due to my unguided choice of Chemical engineering as a first degree course of study i have suffered a great deal academically, i do not have any passion whatsoever for chemical engineering and so i will be graduating with a very poor grade (2.2) cum july.

i have an estimated amount of 3million naira as i speak and no sponsor whatsover and i will like to re-kindle my passion for academics by ''studying abroad'' as it were in my primary and secondary school days. pls what are my options?

thanx in anticipation


I doubt if you'd see a school in the UK that has tuition fees of 6 million naira per annum. You haven't talked about accommodation, feeding, travel expenses and other unforseen expenses.
If it's the UK that I know, forget it... I'm being honest, your budget isn't realistic and it can't be possible.

And come to think of it, most Universities require a foundation year and majority are more than 3 million naira.

Age barrier again...

Sorry bro.

@Justwise and others can advice you on other options, if there are.

You can't study in the UK, US,Canada or Australia with that amount.

Look for german student thread that may be a better option for you

The rate at which the Nigerian officers at the airport beg is becoming very disturbing......they were all requesting tips life & direct! I have never experienced such level of 'beggy beggy' before since all my trips to the UK.

Will you believe one officer was so pained that she dey use style curse herself and not me sad This was what happened ooo: She saw like 100 pounds in my bag ( not knowing even me had to beg my brov and aunty before the thing reach grin), she insisted I give her out of it, that some people even give them more than that. As I refused, she said in yoruba " Ti e ba fe pade alaanu, e drop nkan funmi ooo ( If you wan meet helper, drop sth for me ooo). I said haba....wetin i do you na? After all the drama, she said on top of her voice, '' Check that your money is complete ooo, before you will come back saying your money is missing!!! '' And I said thank you. Lol

Chai......Buhari, this recession must stop oooo. Abeg!

@Moana,

Aside the drama with the immigration officer as earlier narrated, I didn't encounter any hitch. The immigration officer at the UK border only cross checked my passport and visa, requested my CAS and I also gave him the extension letter for documentation. The only question he asked me was the name of my previous study ( I think he asked in order to ensure the academic progression is obeyed). In my case, I did pure Biological Sciences during my 1st masters and now going for a management course to compliment my scientific knowledge ( this was exactly what I said during my visa interview).

For interview purpose, it will be nice to mention a fascinating thing about the town your school is located especially things that relate to your study. I added that Sheffield Hallam interests me due to the varieties of plant species, about 5000 species, available at Sheffield Botanical Gardens and that I look forward to rendering my expertise as well as learning. I also said I've checked through the profile of the instructors and noticed they are world renowned individuals and have 21st century knowledge of Research.

Wewww.... that was a lot right! Shebi, that's what they want to hear na!

PS: Pls remember never to panic, be on top of the game.
Hopefully, it would be helpful to someone.Goodluck
