CHALLENGES FOR STUDENTS STUDYING IN NIGERIA

Despite an eager population who wants to enroll in school to earn their higher degree, the truth is that the country faces challenges and needs reform. Some of the biggest challenges that plague Nigerian institutions for higher education are:

Infrastructure: Only 30% of the population has access to classrooms, labs and workshops.

Poor Quality: The higher education lacks quality because there is a low supply of teachers and there is inadequate funding for technology and necessary resources.

Cultism: Additionally, there are a high amount of cults that threaten academic institutions and their students.

Inferior Funding: With low salaries for staff, as well as lack of money for resources, funding is one of the biggest problems facing education in Nigeria.

CONCLUSION

Despite the challenges, Nigeria has a long list of both public and private institutions. Public universities cost an average of $125-$500 per year, whereas private institutions are estimated to be $2,700.
