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.
