WIT has taken part in Education in Ireland missions to Nigeria and hopes to further develop academic partnerships and pathways with Nigerian partners

WIT this week welcomed international education partners, Ms Damilola Oladejo and Mr Jude Akporumeta from Nigeria to discuss pathways for students into postgraduate programmes, and other areas of academic co-operation.

WIT has taken part in several Education in Ireland missions to Nigeria in the past couple of years to promote Ireland as a study destination, and hopes to further develop academic partnerships and pathways with Nigerian partners.

Construction, engineering and FinTech focus

“WIT for many years has actively fostered academic and diplomatic links with Nigeria through our work both nationally and locally. We look forward to progressing collaborative activity and academic partnerships in disciplines such as construction management, sustainable energy engineering, and FinTech which are priority areas for Nigeria. We also hope to promote pathways in sport science given the large youth population of Nigeria where sport is not only very popular but also has societal benefit,” said Sinead Day, International Affairs Manager at WIT.
