Canada allures Nigerian students

Beginning on 3rd February, the Canadian Education Fair involved representatives of around 40 Canadian universities and colleges to inform Nigerians about different courses and programs of study in Canada and the eligibility criteria for getting admission.

The event attracted a large number of potential Canadian visa applicants wanting to study in Canada. Among those attending the three-day education fair at the Victoria Island in Lagos included students of secondary schools in Nigeria.

A similar fair was held by Canada between 31st January and 1st February in Abuja, revealed the Canadian Embassy’s deputy high commission.

The aim of both these education fairs in Nigeria was to give detailed information about getting Canada visas and Canada study permits for foreigners wanting to study there.

Canada impressed with great response to the Canada Education Fair—

‘Incredible’ is how Director of Admissions at Rosseau Lake College, Julie Cameron described her first experience in Nigeria. The response of Nigerians for pursuing studies in Canada was huge and amazing, stated Cameron. Majority of Nigerian students were interested in knowing the requirements for studying in Canada after they complete their senior secondary study in Nigeria, said Cameron.

Nigerians attracted by high education standards in Canada—

Nigerians attending the education fair held by Canada educational institutes said they were impressed by high standards of education in Canada offered at highly competitive fees. Canada offered affordable education as compared to other nations like the UK.

Great opportunities for Nigerians to study in Canada--- Canada offers vast opportunities for foreigners including Nigerians wanting to study in Canada, stated Christine Durham, a Balmoral Hall School representative. She said that the school offers a rigorous program for foreigners and it provides multicultural environment to the students. Already, there are several students from different nations including China, Mexico, Hong Kong and Taiwan, she asserted.

Lack of knowledge- a major obstacle for foreigners wanting to study in Canada— One of the major reasons for large number of foreigners facing rejection of their applications for Canada study permits is the lack of proper knowledge regarding various requirements for studying there.

So, main aim of this education fair is to provide proper guidance to those wanting to get enrolled in Canada schools or Canada colleges in the near future, said the Trade Commissioner Assistant at Canada Deputy High Commission, Modupe Olaniyonu.
