IS IT REALLY A FULL SCHOLARSHIP?
Well, as a matter of fact, IT IS NOT A FULL SCHOLARSHIP but you will get good discount on your course of choice depending on how you perform in the scholarship qualifying test. When I took the test in 2009, I performed excellently and because of that, I was able to study Java Programming basics at a much more reduced fee, compared to what my mates paid.
You will agree with me that getting a world class IT education is expensive with cost for professional IT education ranging between 50,000 to up to 500,000 Naira or even more. By taking part in the NIIT scholarship program you stand a chance getting waiver on your IT training fees. Depending on your performance in the NIIT scholarship qualifying test, you may get up to 50% fee waiver on your IT training at NIIT Nigeria.
I personally studied Java programming ( SCJP) at NIIT Onitsha for 6 months (Saturdays and Sundays). I enrolled towards the end of my Youth Service year (NYSC) and finished some few months after my Youth service. Right now, am very happy to have taken the step because it has exposed me to loads of stuffs in the IT world. Though, NIIT also has their own flaws, nevertheless, I strongly believe it is still one of the best out there if you really want to skill up in IT.
Below are some of the pictures I snapped one of those days I was still studying Java at NIIT Onitsha.
Visiting any of these NIIT centres could be your first step in your journey to becoming a specialist in the IT world.
