It is no secret that you may experience many obstacles in life. Some may be easier to overcome and some may prove to be real challenges that you have to deal with, whether financial, emotional or physical in nature.
UNICAF is proud to be a supporting sponsor to the upcoming Exsilio Conference at the University of Lagos, on August 9th, 2018. The mentorship conference, designed to prepare students for the challenges awaiting them in the business and career world, once they graduate from university, has invited remarkable personalities, who have excelled in their professional careers, to speak and to mentor participating students. The theme of this year’s Conference is “Success in the 21st century” and 4,000 students are expected to attend.
After earning a university degree, one expects to be able to secure a good job, which can provide a reasonably comfortable life from the first day, yet many graduates struggle for years to pay off their student debt before they can start living the life they want. The main culprit for this is high tuition fees. When one adds to university fees the additional costs of studying, like accommodation away from home, transportation, purchase of books, other living expenses and even the cost of air travel the extend of the problem becomes even more obvious.
