Japa: 128,770 Nigerian Students Move to UK in Seven Years – REPORT

Between 2015 and the end of 2022, there were 128,770 Nigerian students registered in British universities, according to an analysis of data obtained from the UK’s Higher Education Statistics Agency.

The number of Nigerian students has increased over time as they look for better educational opportunities and a better quality of life.


Statistics show that 16,100 Nigerians were enrolled at UK universities during the 2015–2016 academic year.


Only 12,655 Nigerians signed up for classes during the 2016–2017 academic year, a dramatic fall that analysts attribute to the recession in Nigeria.


The number of Nigerian students enrolling decreased from 10,685 in 2017–2018 to 10,810 in the 2018–2019 academic year.


In the academic year 2019–2020, there were 13,020 students registered in total. In the next year, 2020–2021, there were 21,305 students enrolled, a 64 percent increase.


The most students have been enrolled for a session since Nigeria’s independence in 1960—44,195—according to the most recent data made available by HESA.


Nigeria placed third in the top 10 international students list, after China and India, according to a breakdown of the HESA figures.


It was learned that the movement of Nigerian students to overseas schools has continued to be advantageous for international tertiary institutions and their home nations.


In a new development, the United Kingdom is set to announce new restrictions that will most likely stop Nigerian students and other nationalities studying in the UK from bringing their families over.
