Indian Universities Woo Nigerian Students



Ten Indian Colleges and Universities on Wednesday expressed willingness to admit young Nigerians into their institutions in India.

Mr Variam Devesh, Director of Training for EduSoft Associates, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on the sidelines of the opening of a two-day Indian Education Fair.

Devesh, who spoke on behalf of the visiting Indian educational institutions, said the colleges and universities were in Nigeria to admit young Nigerians interested in studying in India.

``Today, we have brought India’s top ten colleges and universities to Nigeria.

``They are here to admit young Nigerians into their affordable and qualitative educational facilities and opportunities.

``We believe that Nigeria’s educational system today is still where India was in the '70s.

``They are, therefore, in Nigeria to get admissions for Nigerians into their graduate and postgraduate courses in Medicine, Engineering and the Paramedical programmes,’’ he said.
