Foremost Educational consultancy service, SJJ Education has said that opportunities now abound in universities in Germany for international students, Nigerians inclusive, to earn a degree or masters in different courses in the European country without paying tuition.
In a statement, made available to newsmen in Lagos, the organisation says,” the German government in October 2014, took the step to completely scrap tuition fees at all public universities which allowed international students to study at their universities without paying any tuition fees. ” The statement also said, international students can also benefit from study grants, financial aid and student loans.
“Germany is currently ranked as the 3rd destination of choice for international students (behind USA & UK, but ahead of France, Australia Canada).Its institutions are world renowned in fields of Engineering, Medicine, Business Management, Arts and Social Science. ”
As Germany opens up to International students, many of her institutions now offer courses and programmes entirely in English language. This means Nigerian Students can take up Bachelors, Master’s Degree, PhD’s and Research Fellowships without a prior study of the German Language. Student can study the language along with their courses. ” Also speaking, Chairman/ CEO SJJ Education , Mr. Saturday Jackson said his organisation will be the bridge between German Universities and students in Nigeria, providing screening and vetting arm for the universities..
According to him, ” We work with a large section of German universities to promote both English led and German led courses to students in West Africa, serving as the Screening and vetting arm of these Universities. We first pre-qualify quality Nigerian students, verify their applications (authenticity, work experience, references, transcripts, interests, etc.) and then place these candidates based on the specific requirements from the Universities.” ”
We also promote courses for Foundation Schools, Vocational Colleges, University Degrees (Bachelor, Master’s), PhD’s and Research Fellowships. Once our students have been accepted for a University place, we assist them with all they need to relocate, settle and thrive in their academic pursuits.
“Our support teams in Germany will facilitate all the requirements for a smooth transition into Germany. Whilst studying, students can have the opportunity to gain practical work experience and valuable internships with leading companies, institutions and global brands.
Post study, students can return to enjoy senior positions at the increasing number of German multinational companies here in Nigeria, across African, or venture afield on the international labour market where German training is world renowned for efficiency and an uncompromising work ethic.”
