Edosoft Associates, an educational organisation which specialises in easing admission procedures for Nigerians desirous of studying in India has expressed its readiness to ensure that all impediments militating against smooth securing of admissions were things of the past.
The commitment was made at the end of education expo they organised in Lagos to demonstrate to intending students, their plans to link them directly with the universities in India and ensure interaction pending the processing of such admissions.
A statement from Edusoft said they plan to make the expo an annual event where opportunities would be made available for direct interaction with the universities or their representatives so that grey areas could be directly sorted out for assured admissions.
“EduSoft Associates has in the last two years established itself as the leading provider of cutting edge education solutions for individuals and organisations in the education sector. Our services, which have been honed over several years, help to ensure that Nigerians are availed the best opportunities available in leading schools in India, and also travel as well as settle seamlessly into their new schools,” the statement said.
According to them, schools that participated in the event include Sharda University, Delhi NCR; Bapuji College of Nursing and Pharmacy; SS Institute of Medical Sciences; Krupanidhi College, Bangalore; SRM University; Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences; Acharya Bangalore B School & Institute of Health Sciences and Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering and Technology.
Highlights of the two-day expo was the admission granted student candidates to study courses ranging from Computer Science and Engineering, and MBA programme.
“Nigerians wishing to secure admission to commence their university education in the 2014/15 academic session could still contact EduSoft Associates in spite of the expo being concluded,” they said.
Director of Operations, Edusoft Associates Nigeria, Mr Badri Prasad observed that Nigeria and India had a lot in common and closer association between the two countries could only lead to more opportunities being made available for citizens of the two countries. With India ascending to become Nigeria’s biggest taker of crude oil, closer ties in critical facets of human endeavour can only lead to greater opportunities for citizens of the two countries.
“Since the beginning of this year we have facilitated the admission of more than 400 Nigerians into the best universities in India, studying courses in the medical sciences, engineering, and humanities, among others. Nigerians studying in India find the country as a second home since the two countries are very close and share a lot in common. Contributing to developing the human capital of Nigerians will certainly help to enhance economic development, which will ultimately lead to even greater ties between Nigeria and India,” Prasad said.
The 2015 expo, said Mr. Prasad, will be staged in other cities in order to give many more Nigerians the opportunity to study abroad. “Port Harcourt, Abuja, in addition to Lagos and other cities, will play host to the 2015 edition of the universities expo. EduSoft Associates is poised to avail Nigerians wishing to study in globally recognised universities the opportunity to do so,” he added.
