Surviving as a Nigerian student in the UK involves various strategies and adjustments to cope with the challenges of living abroad. Here are some common ways Nigerian students in the UK navigate their circumstances:

Financial Management: Many Nigerian students rely on scholarships, grants, part-time jobs, or financial support from family to cover tuition fees, accommodation, and living expenses. Budgeting wisely and seeking opportunities for financial assistance can help stretch limited resources.

Part-Time Employment: Working part-time is common among Nigerian students to supplement their income. They often seek jobs in retail, hospitality, tutoring, or administrative roles. Balancing work and studies requires effective time management skills.

Community Support: Nigerian students often form tight-knit communities with fellow nationals or join multicultural student organizations. These communities provide emotional support, advice, and a sense of belonging, helping students navigate cultural differences and homesickness.

Cultural Adaptation: Adjusting to a new culture can be challenging. Nigerian students immerse themselves in British culture, customs, and norms while preserving their own cultural identity. Engaging in cultural exchange activities and making friends from diverse backgrounds facilitate integration.

Accommodation Options: Nigerian students choose accommodation options based on affordability, proximity to universities, and amenities. Some opt for university halls of residence, shared flats, or private rentals. Sharing accommodation with fellow students can help reduce living costs.

Health and Wellbeing: Accessing healthcare services and maintaining physical and mental well-being are priorities for Nigerian students. They register with a local doctor, utilize campus health services, and engage in recreational activities to manage stress and stay healthy.

Academic Support: Nigerian students leverage academic resources such as libraries, study groups, and tutorial sessions to excel in their studies. Seeking help from professors, academic advisors, or tutoring services can address any academic challenges they encounter.

Cultural Cuisine: While adjusting to British cuisine, Nigerian students often cook traditional dishes to maintain a connection to their homeland. They may also explore international grocery stores or restaurants to find familiar ingredients and flavors.

Networking and Career Development: Nigerian students actively participate in career fairs, workshops, and networking events to enhance their employability prospects. Building professional relationships, securing internships, and gaining work experience contribute to their career development goals.

Legal and Immigration Compliance: Adhering to UK visa regulations and understanding legal requirements are crucial for Nigerian students. They stay informed about immigration policies, renew visas on time, and seek guidance from university international offices or legal advisors when needed.

Overall, Nigerian students in the UK survive and thrive by embracing resilience, resourcefulness, and adaptability in the face of diverse challenges encountered during their academic journey abroad.

Good day house pls I need advice for my family friend who is here in the UK with her husband, she needs help from us/ advice/ suggestions. The home office has written to them to leave the UK, because their student route was not successful after the hubby failed on several occasions. Before their visa expired this year January, the lady tried looking for sponsorship,unfortunately she did not get, so a lawyer adviced they apply for PSW on the ground that her hubby will repeat and pass the exams,which they quickly did, but he failed it again and home office refused the application. We are so confused now. They are now overstayers. She is trying to seek asylum. please have anybody gone through this process OR you know any one that has gone through this asylum. Some pple advised to seek asylum in Ireland. Can anybody help us with a good lawyer that can assist. She doesn't have a job now.

Going back home is not the best solution now. pls help we are confused now. Not easy on them. Thank u.
