We have a large community of international students here at Solent University and understand that relocating to a new country can be a challenge. Students coming from Nigeria can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Nigeria to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Nigerian offices or our own international advice team.
As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses.
Students with a WAEC Senior School Certificate may apply for a foundation year (level 0 of a bachelor's degree).
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.
We are pleased to offer scholarships to students from Nigeria. These are available if you are applying for a full-time course at Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.

As a Nigerian national, you will need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK. When you have met all the conditions of entry for a full-time course at Solent University (including payment of deposit and course acceptance), you will be sent a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number. You will need this document to apply for a student visa.
You should make your application for a visa at your local visa application centre.
