For Nigerian students seeking to get into school on time, the resumption of Indian universities for the 2016/2017 session in July/August may be attractive to them.
Mr Badri Prasad, Chief Executive Officer of Edusoft Associates, a leading provider of university admission services, also said Nigerians can get the best education in the best universities in India for far less than the cost in other countries.
“Nigerians have realised that they can actually study in world class universities at a fraction of the fees charged by schools in the United Kingdom and the United States. Since degrees acquired in universities in India are at par with schools in the UK and the US, we have in the last three years seen an upsurge in the number of Nigerians studying in universities in India,” Prasad said.
He added that students can get scholarships. Those from the same family can enjoy siblings’ discounts in which one sibling pays the full fee and the other receives huge discount; while those seeking to change from schools in the UK and U.S. can transfer course credits to continue studying in India at a fraction of the fees.
Prasad also said Edusoft guides students in choosing their programmes of study, in addition to visa processing and post-admission services once they possess credit level passes in five subjects.
“What we do at Edusoft Associates is to avail our professional experience to intending students to help them chose the course that best fits their career goal, and thereafter our wide network to select the school that best meets this need,” he said. (The Nation)
