Ranking disqualifies Nigerian universities graduates from UK new visa opportunity

The United Kingdom is set to begin issuance of a new visa that allows holders of first degrees, masters, and doctorates to travel to the country and work in fields such as science, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship by May 30.

According to the eligibility criteria, applicants must be a graduate of an oversea university to qualify for the HPI visa but also stipulated that the university has to be one of the top global universities as published in the global universities list by the Home Office.

The visa – high potential individual visa, allows applicants to relocate to the UK without a prior job offer or sponsorship.

The government noted that the list would be compiled annually and would comprise institutions included in the list of the top 50 universities in at least two of the following ranking systems: Times Higher Education World University rankings, Quacquarelli Symonds World University rankings, and the Academic Ranking of the World Universities.

Unfortunately, no Nigerian university makes the list, likewise was there any African university.
