The Texas Tech University system based in Lubbock has signed a partnership agreement with The Technical University in Ibadan, Nigeria. Under the agreement students from Nigeria will be able to study at home for two years and then complete their degree at a campus of the Texas Tech system. The plan is for 250 Nigerian students to study on Texas Tech campuses each academic year. There will also be opportunities for Texas Tech students to study in Nigeria.
Kent Hance, chancellor of Texas Tech University, stated, “We would love to have additional students from Nigeria and for our students to also visit and study in Nigeria. As we grow in international matters, Nigeria will be a strong partner with us.”
