The United States Consulate has announced the opening of its Education USA Advising Centre in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The centre, according to the consulate would be offering a regular schedule of individual, group, and online advising sessions aimed at enabling more students to pursue their dreams of studying in the United States.
The US Consulate Public Affairs Officer, Stephen Ibelli, said the centre would assist prospective undergraduate and graduate students in navigating the admissions process by providing comprehensive and accurate information about the higher education institutions in the United States.
He said, “Nigeria is home to so many talented, ambitious young people, who often ask us about studying in the United States. EducationUSA presents an opportunity for young Nigerians to obtain a world-class education in the United States and then return home to contribute to Nigeria’s economic growth and development.”
The Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Sunkanmi Olaleye, expressed the readiness of the state government to partner with the US Consulate to expand access to the services of the new centre.
