Nigeria

‌In 1913 the University welcomed the first Nigeria student to the University to study medicine.  Since then thousands more have studied at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in a wide range of subject areas and we currently have around 50 Nigerian students studying at Glasgow.  The University also has an International Officer based in Nigeria to provide applicants with information and advice on the University and how to apply.

One of our most notable alumnus is Oladele Adebayo Ajose, who joined the University to study medicine in 1927. Ajose later graduated with an MB ChB in 1932, taking the Diploma in Public Health in 1935 and proceeding to an MD in 1939.  He was the founder of the British Red Cross Society in Nigeria (late the Nigerian Red Cross Society) and founded the Infectious Disease Hospital in Lagos. In later life he became Vice Chancellor of Ife University (now Obafemi Awolowo University) in 1961 and retired from there in 1966.

The University will consider students who gained all As and Bs in WAEC Senior School Certificate for direct entry into first year. Students who have taken a recognised foundation or access programme or equivalent will also be considered, as well as those students who have studied GC A Levels.

Representatives

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
