What Its Mean To Acquire Higher Degree Time Wasting Or What? by Teejeybaba: 4:36pm On Apr 28
My mind full of depression, anytime i remembered what students passed through before you can get any certificate in my dear country Nigeria. After all this struggle, someone will still find it difficult to get a job. Some will still go ahead for their masters or Phd at the end you still find yourself without job. My thoughts now was, should the less privileged person just go for ND and also acquire skill work?.

Study to have yourself approved. My candid advice is that get a good skill with any qualification you can afford now. Even with Ph.D., if you can't translate into Money and means of livelihood, then it's of no importance.
Someone with even O'Level, if he can comfortably earn money to fend for your self, you are good to go.

No, yes a big No, if not in this country, but inside Nigeria, yes, A BIG WASTE OF TIME. u may ask me why, because am a student in engineering in my last year, I can't construct shit, only theories, I had to learn skills with another hard earned money to add value, most countries would reject a degree from Nigeria over and over. my aunt schooled in YABATECH, Lagos, when she travelled out to italy, her degree was not accepted, had to start a fresh, just school or get your degree outside this country. gracias.

No

Improve on your degree

Add relevant skill set

Start from somewhere ( volunteer / intern / low pay job. ) And then move on


Better still learn and start your own business, that's why you're a graduate , you should have the ability to create


Me want to add more to my degree and other certificates

Trust they are doors only degree certificate can open and in most cases even at the work place, it serves as a tool to fulfill all reightouness.....the main attention is on your KNOW HOW and NOT YOUR DEGREE

Let me tell you a short story.. Two friends of mine left school in our 3re year to do Yahoo, they are in millions if not billions.

They are without a degree, I am with one and I can access places they cant and they can buy things I cant for now...


One is back to school now...

Degree is important till tomorrow

It is not. You can use the degree 4 immigration purposes. Better to have a degree that you do not need, than to need a degree that you do not have

YES IT IS!
Degrees are overrated and mostly gotten through dishonest means (eg. sex for grades, machinery, cash for grades).
Only pursue a degree iff you are naturally brilliant and want to become a lecturer. Otherwise DON"T pursue.

Take me or example, after my SSCE (7As 1F in Yoruba), I proceeded to learning IT skills. Now I'm the best PL/SQL developer in the whole South-West, if not Nigeria!

Getting a degree is not a waste of time. It’s high time we stop faulting education for our own deficiencies. Some go to the university to get a degree in Animal Husbandry, some in International Relationship and lots of irrelevant courses in our society. And such individual will later blame government and education for not getting a job after graduation. No. It doesn’t work that way. We should be conscious of the kind of courses we pursue when desperate for admission. Out of desperation; I opted for Biochemistry while I was a jambite. I had to leave in my 200L for a health related course in a college of health. It wasn’t an easy decision but I had to follow advice and now I have no regret coz I’ll finish my degree in the same career next year. I’m not certain about getting a job instantly but I know I’ll definitely get one someday and not too long cos the local, State and federal government can not employ into the hospital management board without hiring my discipline. So pls, we should know the kind of society we lives in before filling and accepting admission offer. I have friends who later got their degree in Med Lab and didn’t stay 3 month at home before he secured a facility to work (Though Private) but at least; it puts decent food on his table. Education again isn’t all about been hired for labor after graduation. It’s to enlighten us and prepare us to be independent. Many times, I follow people to say “school na scam” but deep down I know it is not. School is never and will never be a waste of time and resources. But we should chose our discipline wisely. Don’t go for some secular courses with no relevance in our contemporary society. You can’t compare someone who studies Office Management or even Business administration to someone who got his degree in Radiology or Dentistry. No. They are very different. So pls let’s be wise

Depending on which degree or how you can utilize it.

Don’t go and study medicine and start selling Herbal Life Products after school.

The truth is most people just accept any admission that comes their way just because they want to be in school.

Please do your home work of researching your prospect in any given field you want to dabble into. Don't just accept to go and study zoology because you want to leave your parents house and live a free life in school or feel among the "I am in school".

Some courses are meant to be scrapped already.

acquiring a degree is not a waste of time. But Nigerian graduates all depends most of there hopes on the certificate that's why if the certificate does not deliver they start been depressed. Acquiring a useful skill will help your certificate sell. Chikina

There is know job in naija for now except you are highly connected or decide to settle for shitty jobs with low payment.
Most federal uni as free internet and decent hrs of electricity which is supposed to be used by students to acquire monitiseable skills and become good in it as they move to higher level but most of the students are only interested in using uni internet and free electricity for doing shitty stuff like posting on social media, committing cyber crime etc. The only good thing in most uni is the free eletricity and internet use it wisely otherwise you will end up in NPower were you will end up earning shit and become useless to yourself and the country at large.
