400L UNILAG Student Abandons University To Start Afresh Abroad




A Nigerian lady identified via her Twitter handle as @Falilatt has revealed how she quit her studies in UNILAG to start afresh in Finland.

The lady, who was already in year 4, said it was her dream to complete her studies in a Nigerian university before relocating abroad but the 2020 ASUU strike made her change her mind.

The former UNILAG undergraduate said she had considered studying in the UK but she changed her mind because of the high cost of living, deciding to choose Finland.

She wrote: “The 2020 ASUU strike broke me. Before then, my experience was not the greatest, Nigeria federal university system almost took my precious life but I was determined to get my degree before pursuing education elsewhere.

“I asked myself this question, do I want to spend all of my 20s chasing a BSc degree? “I began my research and realized private universities policies were not favorable for me so I decided to expand my horizon by applying abroad.

“Juggling Unilag, my Finland application, & working full time, I asked myself if I was doing the right thing? If it’ll be worth it? “It was not an easy decision but I can say for a fact that the experience is different and it makes it worth it for me. Indeed, khaki no be leather!”
