The Director of International Office, Aston University, United Kingdom (U.K.), Matthew Dean, has reiterated the  institution’s commitment to assisting   Nigerian students who want to study abroad.

Dean told CAMPUS LIFE last week that  the university would provide jobs for students who plan to stay after their studies.He added that the institution is one of the  universities in the UK  to offer such.

He said: “We have  many Nigerian  students who  have come to study in Aston University in the last 30 years. So we are  to talk to students that are interested in coming to Aston in Birmingham, it is a really good time to study in the UK at the moment because not only are we post-pandemic, we are moving back to normal teaching and face to face. ‘’The UK government also announced the graduate immigration route visa for students who graduate with a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate degree which means after they finish studying they can do two years of working in the UK.”

Dean also said the institution was focused on offering high-quality courses in business, management studies, engineering, law and social sciences.

He stressed the need for students to have employability skills.

His words: “The job market as we all know is very competitive.  It is not good enough just to have your academic study you also need your employability skills.”

The Regional Manager, Africa, of the  university, Babajide  Ogundeji, said  various scholarships  were available for students.

He  added: “Each year we send over £2 million to cover scholarship costs across the globe. We increased it this year to £3 million. Nigerian students studying with us can enjoy between the scholarship opportunity. Last year, a Nigerian student won an enterprise scholarship which is full funding. The scholarship goes to students that are academically qualified and motivated. In the last one year, we got over  400 students from Nigeria.”
