Nigerian Students Offered Flights Home After University Crisis


Teesside University has pledged to assist in funding flight tickets for Nigerian students it previously reported to the Home Office, to return to their country.


This decision comes after the Nigerian students, who were thrown off courses due to currency crisis, struggled to pay their tuition fees

Students at the Middlesbrough-based university faced expulsion and orders to leave the UK after their savings were depleted during Nigeria’s worst economic downturn in generations. The situation worsened when Teesside University altered its payment plan from seven installments to three, making it even harder for students to manage their finances.

Following protests and the intervention of the Nigerian government, the university announced to the BBC that it has re-enrolled some affected students and established a travel fund to help those whom needed to return home. Despite this, one student criticized the offer, saying, “The wide-rippling effects of this are unmanageable and piling up.”
