“Want to work abroad?” – University courses that guarantee high-demand jobs abroadProminent Nigerian doctor, Olufunmilayo, has offered valuable advice to young Nigerians contemplating their university courses, particularly those aspiring to work abroad.
The doctor shared a list of medical courses that are highly sought after and have good prospects for securing jobs abroad.
The doctor’s recommendations include pursuing degrees in Nursing, Radiography, Physiotherapy, Dental Therapy, and Occupational Therapy.
Dr. Olufunmilayo suggests these fields not only provide promising job opportunities abroad but are also more affordable and less cumbersome compared to other courses.
He cautions against choosing courses such as Pharmacy, Law, Dentistry, and Medicine due to their challenging pathways, potential financial strain, and prolonged duration.
Dr. Olufunmilayo emphasizes the difficulties associated with these courses, including the risk of being admitted to medical programs, the extensive duration marked by ASUU strikes, and the high probability of being expelled before graduation.
Dr. Olufunmilayo particularly discourages pursuing a career in Medicine, citing its demanding nature, prolonged duration, and the rising cost of education in many Nigerian universities.
He also highlights the challenges associated with admission and the likelihood of facing expulsion before completing the program.
The doctor advocates for Nursing as an optimal choice, citing its relatively straightforward pathway, global demand, and ease of migration.
According to Dr. Olufunmilayo, nurses can effortlessly relocate abroad, and their qualifications are recognized in various developed countries.
In his words;
‘’If you or someone you know has future plans to leave Nigeria and you are wondering what’s the smartest and more affordable university courses to take in Nigeria right now that guarantees you will get a job in demand abroad especially in the medical field-
- Do nursing,
- Do Radiography.
- Do Dental therapy.
- Do Occupational Therapy.
“Leave pharmacy. Leave Law. Leave dentistry. Their pathway is not usually easy, cheap or straightforward.
“Even medicine, leave am – too stressful, too long with asuu strikes, now expensive in many universities, chances of you getting admitted is very low and chances of being kicked out before you graduate is very high.
“Again, if you want a course where you will always be in demand abroad, with a fast easy japa process- go for nursing.
“Not only can nurses easily move abroad, they can also easily move from one developed country to another if they wish to. Not same for so many courses. Even as a doctor, to move from uk to usa, your eye go see red pepper.
“The global opportunities that comes with studying nursing and having a nursing certificate/degree is infinite and limitless.
“Enough said. Good morning. Good luck.”
