We have been welcoming Nigerian students to our campuses for over 30 years. Our first recorded Nigerian student enrolled with us in 1983 – so long ago she predates our current student record system.
Popular programmes for Nigerian students at undergraduate level include the CCCU International Foundation Programme progressing on to Law, Computing, Health Promotion & Public Health and our wide variety of Business subjects in year 1. At postgraduate level MSc Health Promotion & Public Health, MA Education, MA Early Years, MSc Computing and our various Masters programmes in Business attract a great many applications.
We continue to value students and partners from Nigeria and would love to meet you on one of our upcoming trips.
If you are interested in making an application or want to discuss our services and partnership development in more detail please contact the International Admissions Team.

Some programmes require 6.5/7.0 – please contact the International Office if you are unsure of your course requirement.
For postgraduate entry all applicants will need a minimum of IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in writing and no less than 5.5 in all other bands or equivalent. Some courses have a higher requirement – please contact the International Office if you are unsure of your course requirement.
For International Foundation entry all applicants will need a minimum of IELTS 5.0 or equivalent, with no less than 5.0 in writing and no less than 4.0 in all other bands.
If you have taken an IGCSE exam in English and have a Grade C, this will also usually be acceptable for most undergraduate courses.
We are also able to consider some non-UK English qualifications for entry. The International Admissions Team will advise if they are able to accept your English language qualification once you have applied.
For postgraduate applicants holding an undergraduate degree from a Nigerian University, the requirement for IELTS may be waived if the award was taught and assessed in English. This is normally evidenced through your transcript or by a letter from the University.
If you are applying from Nigeria, please contact the representative closest to you to make your application. Please note that your application will be assigned to the agency that you start your application with.
