Goodwill message from the chairman

logo The University of Lagos (UNILAG) as a key player in the knowledge economy, such as Nigeria recognises the international nature of education in the modern world and seeks fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas with higher educational institutions all over the world. Such exchanges, based on mutual interest and enhancement of capacity-building and human capital development generally are intended to strengthen the bond of friendship and collaboration among scholars, scientists and students across borders. As a non-denominational, public institution, the University of Lagos seeks exchange of ideas, joint research schemes, faculty and students exchange with Universities, Institutes and Centres in other countries. The University appreciates the fact that internationalisation of education has become imperative in teaching, learning and research in the 21st century, and that forward-looking institutions must take full advantage of the global setting to enhance the awareness of its products and outreach. The IRPP Office is expected to develop agreements with international academic institutions, host international delegations, initiate and coordinate international education outreach activities and assist in recruiting international students.
