LOLIA:  Can we meet you Sir?

I am Kolawole Oladotun.  

LOLIA: It has been a trend for parents and guardians to send their children/wards abroad for tertiary education. Why this trend when there are good schools here in Nigeria.

Education is not just about being good; certain factors are as well required such as international exposure and advance educational quality beyond the usual.

Organizations, especially the multinationals, consider candidates with foreign degrees more. Due to their experiences with employees, which cannot be explained on this platform. There is a survey by Phillips Consulting, Nigeria that says it all.

LOLIA:  Why do you insist on North Cyprus?

The government of North Cyprus has consistently regarded Education as one of their major sectors, and as a result invested heavily towards getting a better quality as much as the A-schools.

Also, do you know you can school abroad (Cyprus) and pay 70% less or even lesser of what you are paying in UK, US, and Canada schools? I know this will surprise you, but this is absolutely real including the fact that the schools have a global ranking recognition just like the UK, US and Canada schools, with even a more convenient application process.

Above all, quality mixed with affordability makes the difference.

Getting a job is perpendicular to what an applicant has to offer the specified organization, as jobs are obtained based on merit. The keywords however is that jobs are available for those who merit it coupled with the fact that the government makes serial provisions to ensure that all are gainfully employed
LOLIA:  Upon return to Africa, what are the chances of getting a good job or establishing a good business with the knowledge acquired?

The opportunities inherent, in terms of business and job are infinitesimal, as the experiences, exposures and network gathered at the school provides the chances.

They are faring well, some did furthered, and some are doing business, while others are gainfully employed both in Nigeria and abroad.
