1. CHOOSE A COUNTRY BASED ON YOUR DESIRED DISCIPLINE 

You might want to choose a country based on your desired course of study. Also, to make this work, you might have to do some research. Let me make this practical. If your desired course of study is Engineering, you should search for “best engineering universities in the world.” Make a list of those Universities and the country where they are located. You can choose a country to study in based on this.

2. THROUGH INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY RANKINGS

You can choose to study in a Country based on international University rankings. There are several sites that lists out the best universities in the world. Search for them, and choose a country to study in based on that.

3. CHOOSE BASED ON AFFORDABILITY

However, your financial limitation should be considered before settling for a country to study in. You can search for the cheapest schools in the world and make a decision based on that.

What are the Factors To Consider As a Nigerian Before Choosing The Country Where You Will Study?

As earlier said, quite a large number of Nigerians

  • LANGUAGE BARRIER

Nigeria is an English speaking country by virtue of our Colonial masters. As a Nigerian who aspires to study abroad, a factor to consider before dashing out of the country is language Barrier. You can’t properly study in a country without having a proper understanding of that country’s language. For example, you might wish to study in Japan, but do you understand Japanese? Hence, language Barrier is an important factor to consider before choosing a country to study in. Although, in some countries like Russia, your first year in University will be solely dedicated to learning to speak Russian. After successfully excelling at that, your main course of study kicks off in your second year. However, not all countries offer such, so you should consider that as well.

  • VISA REGULATIONS

Visa regulations is quite different in every country. You might want to study in a country that doesn’t require visa. Or, you might settle for a country with a little cost and straightforward process. It takes adequate research to find out the visa regulations of each countries your aspire to study in.

  • CLIMATE, LIFESTYLE AND CULTURE

The lifestyle and culture in other countries are different from that of Nigeria. I advice you read about the lifestyle and culture of a country before decided to study there. Also, the climate condition of a country is something to put into consideration. Russia and Canada are very cold countries. If you’re okay with that, then you can choose to study in those countries.

  • COST

Studying abroad can be financially draining. Universities abroad are not as cheap as those we have in Nigeria. You should choose a country to study in based on the cost of schooling in that particular country.
