Obuda University. Study in Europe Fair in Nigeria Attracts Over 5,000 Attendees, Showcasing Valuable Educational Opportunities for Nigerian Students

The Study in Europe Fair in Nigeria witnessed an impressive turnout of over 5,000 individuals. Hosted by the European Union Delegation to Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the event garnered significant attention, drawing the participation of more than 43 higher institutions from Europe. This event served as a critical platform for Nigerian students to explore and consider the vast educational prospects available in Europe. Obuda University, a prominent Engineering and IT institution, played a pivotal role in the recent Study EU fair in both Kano and Lagos, organized by the EU Mission Nigeria.

Notably, its presence highlighted the diverse range of programs available to students, including sought-after courses such as Computer Science Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Design Engineering, and Architecture, at various academic levels, including Master’s, Bachelor’s, and PhD.

Furthermore, it was revealed that the university had served 200 students at the event, offering education at a more affordable cost compared to institutions in the UK, US, and Canada.

During the fair, the European Union emphasized the importance of Nigerian students taking advantage of the well-established educational system in Europe. The University’s notable programs in Computer Science Engineering and other engineering disciplines garnered considerable attention, sparking interest among the attendees.

In a statement issued in Lagos, the political officer of the Press and Information Section of the EU Delegation to Nigeria, Ms. Agnieszka Torres De Oliveira, underscored the significance of providing academic opportunities for Nigerians in Europe, aligning with the EU’s global gateway strategy, which emphasizes a renewed corporate approach with partner countries. The Governor of Lagos State, represented by the Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Mr. Tolani Sule, also recognized the substantial role that European education plays in shaping the skills and global connectivity of Nigerian students.

Interestingly, it was noted that a substantial portion of the Nigerian attendees, approximately 70%, had limited prior knowledge about Hungary, with many encountering information about Obuda University for the first time. This revelation emphasizes the importance of initiatives like the Study in Europe Fair in Nigeria, which bridges the gap between students and lesser-known European educational institutions, fostering global awareness and promoting international collaboration.

The collaborative efforts between EU Universities, the EU Mission Nigeria, and the Lagos State government serve as a testament to the shared benefits that arise from nurturing educational partnerships between Nigeria and Europe. With a joint commitment to advancing education, this initiative aims to pave the way for a promising future for Nigerian students while further enriching the academic landscape in Lagos and beyond.
