“The European countries see Nigeria as a country of priority. We are, therefore, opening up Europe to foreign students, including Nigeria, based on cooperation between agencies in charge of universities from EU member
states,” he said.

The Ambassador said that the programme would enable Nigeria and the EU countries to collaborate in areas of international credit mobility, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees, Capacity Building for Higher Education and Jean Monnet studies.

He said that the programme would provide funding opportunities for cooperation for qualified Nigerians.

Arrion said that the one-day fair, which was targeted at about 3000 Nigerians, was meant to expose Nigerians to the existing educational opportunities for them in the EU states.
