The event is conceived as an opportunity for Nigerians to meet with the best French Higher Education institutions coming to Nigeria and also improve relations between Nigerian Universities and their French counterparts.
This is in demonstration of the French Embassy commitment to strengthening ties between France and Nigeria and education provides the perfect platform to do so as many French Universities, through the development of English language programs, can now break the language barrier and accept more Nigerians to study a wide array of courses.
Beyond just attracting more Nigerian students to study in France, the French mission in Nigeria is also creating partnerships between Nigerian and French Institutions to encourage exchange is not just knowledge but in students and faculty, thus creating richer programs that benefit all parties.
This year, the fair in Abuja will take the form of a roundtable with the following topics: · How to increase the attractiveness of France for Nigerian pupils, students and professionals, How to develop new forms of cooperation between Nigerian institutions and French institutions.
The Lagos event, on the other hand, will be a classic fair with a number of French Institutions represented, offering different courses taught entirely in English at the Bachelors, Masters and PhD levels. Both Fairs will be attended by at least 10 different French Universities and institutions of higher education including a representative of all French public universities, a French embassy representative, representatives of the network of French schools in Nigeria, the representatives of Campus France and more.
