Studying in the UK | International students (Nigeria)

As an international student, you’ll find an array of exciting experiences ahead of you and will have the opportunity to discover places in the the United kingdom and meet new people.

As the UK is a cosmopolitan city, you’ll find that many UK customs are already familiar.
If you’re a Nigerian, don’t stress it! you will settle down quickly. You will find Nigerians everywhere so don’t worry about being lonely. Don’t be surprised if you find more than 5 Nigerians in your class.

As a Nigerian studying in the UK, it was really easy for me to get along because I see my fellow Nigerians everywhere, this enabled me get along easily.

Most Universities in the UK have a large community of international students and these Universities understand that relocating to a new country can be a challenge. Students coming from Nigeria can find a range of advice right on the schools website, student union, or school’s social media page. Most universities in the UK have the “Nigerian Society” so you can always connect with people there.

One major thing that help students here is your ability to socialise, I learnt during my first few months of arrival that talking and socialising with people can help you know more and learn better. Don’t be a one man battalion, you need to get along with people to help scale through here in the UK, at least for the first few months after your arrival.

Here, everything is online, you can easily reach people through emails and through social media. Internet is free! So use it like you own it!

Also, be friendly, smile, go out! Go to seminars, society group, learning groups. Hang out with people. Because that’s how you hear about more information and learn more.

The learning method here is also very different from Nigeria and most countries. So you need to ask questions to know and learn. Everything becomes easy when you ask. Overall the UK is a beautiful place to study and live. I’m sure you will enjoy your stay here and if you’re planning to apply to a university in the UK, I think you are on the right path to your next big achievement.
