One of the solid reasons to study abroad is because of the quality of education offered in the country you plan to visit. Nigerians especially are advised to study abroad because many foreign countries especially the U.S and U.K are not very friendly with the certificates offered in the country. If you study in Nigeria before getting into such countries, you are most likely going to have to ‘upgrade’ your result by taking up a 2-3 year program on the course you studied. Asides this, you can also decide to travel to an overseas country to experience the different styles of educational training students undergo.
