Please note: We cannot accept direct applications from applicants in Nigeria due to the high rate of visa refusals and documentation issues. Applicants in Nigeria should apply online, through UCAS or through our local representative, Glory Educational Services. This includes applications for Distance Learning courses. A small charge will be made by Glory for administration and visa counselling. For more details, please visit our Nigeria page.
