Don't worry, Australians won't allow you to pollute their schools. They were planning of throwing out some Indian students during the past Indian student crisis.

@obadiah777 why lie.

you can't have gone to a uni in the us and to a lesser extent the uk without writing a single essay. and given the writing ability of people on here, who supposedly graduated from Nigerian universities. I strongly doubt that essays are given, and actually marked.

you can't go and sit in a freshman-level science course and come and use that experience to talk about education quality.

Chedarking: I honestly cant understand why any foreign student will want to study in the UK anyway.
You cant work afterwards here.
Your degree is less impressive cos employers back home know you must come back...
You just come here and waste your money in the name of 'foreign' education.

And untop of all that, the UKBA can decide to deport you without letting you finish your degree...for NO crime of yours!

Brethren please stay back in Nigeria or go to the US/Australia/Anywhere we can influence the price of Garr1 in the market!


What are you doing in the uk?

Study elsewhere, if its study. Try to.

It is really sad for the students caught up in the London Met wahala, I hope they get sorted out. Seeking out great schools in the UK, US or wherever should be the pre-occupation of every prospecting student. Trust me, taking time to do some research, seeking information from those in the know and checking out university league tables will pay off eventually for anyone seriously thinking of making an educational investment moreso in a foreign country. Because that is what it is, an investment!!

That said. There are several university league tables employing different criteria at arriving the positions given to universities so assessed based on their performance on the set indices used. A combination of two or three renowned tables will definitely help.

And when you get into a top notch institution, please sit your bum down and study because the demand to apply ones self academically will be very high. And yes, there have been reported cases of cheating in the world's top universities too!!!

obadiah777: had to leave the country in the middle of it because of family problems not because of the education. the education was the best. first off if you have to prove yourself by writing essays on every exam, you will be a lot smarter with more critical thinking skills. all the universities i attended in america and britain ? the lecturers are too lazy to be bothered to score essays so everything is in multiple choice questions. i found myself missing those essay writing tests and exams so i can prove myself and show my knowledge. all in all ? i had my best education in nigeria. dunno what the state of the education is there now but when i was there ? i absolutely loved it and those are the best years of my life up till now. i pine for those years again. wish i can bring back those years. plus the friendship you make in nigerian universities is brotherly and sisterly. out here you cant really fraternize too well because of racial differences. chances are you are being tolerated alot and as such you will never make close friendships. plus there are hardly campus accomodations. you have to rent out of campus and as such you dont get a cohesive community feel to the whole thing. all in all, its all hype and no substance.

obadiah777: i was actually born in england wink as are all my siblings. you cant deport a man from where he was born.

How does a picture of a passport proves that you are born in England? You don't need to be born in the UK to get the passport, you can get it through marriage, holding work permit, living there for 10, 14 yrs.

Some of us are castigating some Nigerian Universities because after spending 4 or 5 years in a University, you should know it is Universities for plural and not Universitys. You should be ashamed of yourself. My guess is that they let you in without passing your English SSCE/GCSE. grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

.my university was not in the top 20 but i have friends who graduated in top 20 universities including uni of manchester,lmu e.t.c and there were several occasions when lecturers and staffs coerce them to make positive feedbacks concerning their time at the university.this is what is used to a noticeable externt in determining the ratings obviously in concert with other criterias it is not as simple and straighfoward as you are making out and yes its true there are several universities abroad with a higher rating than the oxford

Stay away from UK universities.
One of the ConDem's objective is to cut down immigration to tens of thousands. Their major target is student visas.

Look elsewhere - Canada,US et al. The UK is just not 'it' anymore when it comes to university education.

I guess you have to take my word for it. i dont know you and you dont know me so i am not trying to impress you. the point in showing my passport is to debunk your ' i got deported crap'. yes i was sent back to nigeria by my parents to get some african manners and african discipline through african boarding school.

As usual, the UKBA have gone guns blazing on foreign students in a bid to curb immigration, without properly thinking about the consequences of their action.

What they should have done is to prevent new students coming in, and given the university a period to let current students pass through. This way, they would not have panicked students who are uncertain of the future, apart from the stress of living in a foreign land.

With the unnecessary chaos they have created, I honestly wonder what happened to the brains England had in those good old days. Now, it seems to be a bunch of disgruntled legislators, nit picking on foreign students and foreigners in general.

The university knew about this since March, they saw this coming and kept quiet, now the student is suffering it. I don't like this timing but the uni should have put their house in order.

If i were the students i will sue the uni for this.

You do not know what you are talking about.

The UK has some of the best universities in the world other than Cambridge and Oxford.

1. University of Manchester - World Rank 48
2. University of Liverpool - World Rank 181
3. University of Leeds - World Rank 133
4. University of Birmingham - World Rank 148
6. London School of Economics - World Rank 47
7. University of Sussex - 99
8. University of Bristol - 66


The list goes on and on.

Now let us start with our best university of Ibadan which is ranked 2475 not even near to some of the worst in the UK.

I am just trying to correct your wrong impression that only Oxbridge schools are of a high standard.

We have a long way to go.

What parameters do they use for the ranking?

Total Nonsense!

I 'studied' in the west as well as nigeria. Nigeria Top Universities are NOT as bad as people potrayed them.

Well, fair enough, but it still does not justify their decision.

UKBA could have suspended the university licence without banning them from teaching current students – you don’t throw out the baby with the bath water. If these students abscond or resort to crime, they will have a bigger issue on their hands.

Honestly, I find it difficult to believe that students without stay are in a UK school.

Are they obtaining degrees in another person's name - using ori-olori - or their visas have expired?

It is difficult to believe the former; and in case of the latter, i would think the school would have been communicating them and threatening withdrawal of access to the school facilities etc.

I don't understand and will appreciate if someone in the house can explain...

The issues here are that the uni did not keep track of students who did not attend lectures, students who speak little or no English while the uni has stated in the CAS that those students have level of English language suitable for the course.

The uni turned a blind eyes to these offenses and you don't blame UKBA for taking actions, though wrong timing.

Nah, I blame UKBA 60%, as they are fond of making hasty decisions. Last problem I had involved one of such decisions, which was used against them in court. The most annoying part is they didn’t even send a Lawyer/Solicitor, and I spent enough £’s on mine.

Anyway, we'll see how things pan out.

But the citizen can choose to leave the country. Travel back to see his/her relations every now and then. Especially since this citizen had his/her education elsewhere. This citizen should also send his/her kids away from UK, to have all their education elsewhere, preferably Nigeria. University education inclusive.

Don't you agree?

If they have finished their course the certificate remains ok but their immigration record will still be a prob.

They can get their licence back by cleaning up their house, vet students properly, keep track of students who does not attend lectures or show up at all after they might have arrived in the UK.
