Applying to schools abroad can get frustrating, tedious and unjustifiably expensive. It’s not surprising that many Nigerians drop off at planning stage for these reasons. That’s why leading financial institution, First City Monument Bank, as part of its Education Advisory Services, has put together a nationwide programme to guide Nigerians who wish to study abroad on how to prepare and get the necessary support.
The nationwide Study Abroad Exhibitions are being hosted by FCMB in partnership with MOD Services, as well as Colleges and Universities abroad. So far, exhibitions have held in 3 cities across Nigeria– one each in Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.
This weekend, it will be the turn of Lagosians, as the FCMB Study Abroad Exhibition will hold at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos on Friday, July 27 and at Eko Hotel & Suites on Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 12noon each day.
