UWS has a thriving community of Nigerian students and each year we welcome over 100 Nigerian students to our Scottish and London campuses. With an extensive catalogue of undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes designed to meet the demands of research and industry, the University continues to offer a wide range of opportunities to Nigerian applicants.
We recently launched our Centre for African Research on Enterprise and Economic Development (CAREED), with one of our academics, Professor John Struthers, as the Director. CAREED has a unique emphasis on enterprise and economic development, especially given Africa’s strong recent and on-going development.
There are a range of scholarship opportunities available for international students. There are also a number of major international scholarship schemes that are open to Nigerian students, including Chevening Scholarships and the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme.
There is a well-established community of Nigerian students at UWS who play an active role in many of the University’s social societies and sports clubs.
This means that as a student at UWS, you will have the opportunity to meet people from your home country as well as making new friends from Scotland and other parts of the world.
