Written by Oyebamiji Idowu on January 3, 2024
The Nigerian Ministry of Education has announced that it has withdrawn recognition for 18 foreign universities operating within the country. These institutions are no longer considered to meet the necessary standards for quality education and accredited degrees.
The Ministry urges Nigerian citizens to exercise caution when considering international educational options. It is recommended to verify the legitimacy and accreditation of any foreign university before enrolling. This can be done through official channels such as the Ministry of Education website or recognized international accreditation agencies.
This action aims to protect Nigerian students from pursuing degrees that may not be recognized by employers or relevant professional organizations. It also ensures that educational standards are upheld within the country.
