Sonia Odije, the embassy’s Advisor for Trade and Economic Affairs on Wednesday, February 7, while speaking with newsmen in Lagos ahead of the Second “Study in Holland Fair’’ made it known that the Dutch embassy is now promising Nigerians affordable education in Holland.
This news came just barely two weeks after the French embassy urged Nigerian students to study in its universities. Having had its first education fair in June 2017, Odije said delegations form Dutch universities will be coming to Lagos on Saturday, March 3 for recruitment of Nigerian students into Netherlands universities.
“The Netherlands on June 10, last year, held her maiden Education Fair in Lagos, which attracted about 500 Nigerians.
“That first fair was meant to create awareness among Nigerians of the internationally-recognised over 2000 English Language taught courses in her higher educational institutions.
“This forthcoming second fair, scheduled to hold on March 3, at the Federal Hotel, Victoria Island, from 9: 00 a.m. to 5: 00 p.m., is now meant for the recruitment of Nigerian students into Netherlands universities for qualitative and affordable education.
Odije also, advised parents and guardians to bring their children to the fair adding that the exhibition will give them the opportunity to interact directly with representatives from the Dutch universities.
