FCMB observed that applying to schools abroad can get frustrating, tedious and unjustifiably expensive. It’s not surprising that many Nigerians drop off at planning stage for these reasons.
That is why the bank, as part of its Education Advisory Services, has put together a nationwide programme to guide Nigerians who wish to study abroad on how to prepare and get the necessary support.
