Worldview Education Fair is dedicated to helping institutions recruit prospective international students from Nigeria. This fair is open to all institutions worldwide, helping you meet and recruit a wide pool of quality potential students.

Many fairs and exhibitions focus only on recruiters from a specific country, thereby attracting a limited pool of students with predetermined interests in those specific study destinations. The Worldview Education Fair brings institutions from all around the world to one place; giving students more opportunities and options, thereby attracting a larger, more diverse pool of students. For recruiters, this exhibition provides an opportunity to improve their reach and brand awareness; marketing to a larger number of students and alongside some well-known institutions.

The Worldview Education Fair 2017 will take place at the Eko Hotel & Suite in Lagos, Nigeria and is a one day event open to all institutions worldwide, drawing a larger pool of students by giving them several options to fit their price, location and course requirements. Students are encouraged to come with all the necessary documentation in order to allow them to make immediate applications to institutions.

Nigeria is the most populated country in Africa, with approximately double the population of both Ethiopia and Egypt, the next biggest African countries by population size. Demographically the country is young and growing quickly, with 63 percent of the population under the age of 24 and a high average relative annual growth rate of 3.24%, a full half a percentage point higher than the African average. For the Nigerian education system this means incredible new demands that the government is currently hard pressed to meet. At the tertiary level alone, the number of students has grown from under 15,000 in 1970 to approximately 1.2 million today. As a result of the huge surge in demand, hundreds of thousands of aspiring tertiary students are missing out on places annually, as there are simply not enough seats to meet demand.

This year, 1.7 million students registered for Nigeria’s centralized tertiary admissions examinations, all competing for the half million places available; potentially leaving over a million qualified college-age Nigerians without a post-secondary place. This despite the fact that the number of available places has grown significantly in recent years as the government establishes new institutions in its efforts to meet demand. Since 2005, the number of universities alone has grown from 51 to 128, while capacity at existing universities has been stretched to its limits.

These expansion efforts, while generally positive for access in absolute terms, have created issues related to instructional quality. Nigeria’s institutions and lecture halls are severely overcrowded, student to teacher ratios have skyrocketed and faculty shortages have become a major problem, with an estimated 40% of university positions and 60% of polytechnic positions currently unstaffed. High unemployment among university graduates is also a major problem, but does not appear to be a deterrent to those seeking admission into institutions of higher learning.

Where business gets done – is Lagos. One of the world’s largest urban areas, the population of Lagos has nearly doubled over 15 years to reach 21 million and by 2015, Lagos will be third largest megacity after Tokyo and Bombay. Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos sprawls inland from the Gulf of Guinea across Lagos Lagoon. Victoria Island, the financial center of the metropolis, is known for its beach resorts, boutiques and nightlife. To the north, Lagos Island is home to the National Museum Lagos, displaying cultural artifacts and craftworks. Nearby is Freedom Park, once a colonial-era prison and now a major venue for concerts and public events.

The fair will give visitors the opportunity to meet directly with admission officers to discuss what courses, pathways and opportunities are available, as well as the general application and enrolment process. Visitors will include:
  • Parents/ guardians with their wards
  • Top secondary schools
  • Government officials in the education circle
  • Student with WAEC / NECO result
  • Researchers of Education Development
  • Entrepreneurs with training plans
  • Representatives of education funds
  • Graduates
  • General public etc.
  • Past Fairs
