At the University of Surrey, we have a long history of welcoming international students from all around the world, and there is a vibrant Nigerian community of over 200 students at Surrey. We value our links with Nigeria and travel to the country regularly to visit schools and universities, and to attend exhibitions – we also have representatives across Nigeria, including in Abuja, Enugu, Lagos, Port Harbour and Port Harcourt.
