Education tourism is one of the different forms of tourism, and is a way to provide the best education to students learning while enhancing knowledge. The increase in this type of tourism is based on the growing popularity of attaining knowledge and technical competencies from the best destinations around the world.  

According to Mrs. Funmi Modupe, Principal Consultant, Schoolingyonda, “Our major focus with EduTourism is to simply showcase what we have, that which we as Nigerians are exceptionally talented and the world already recognize.” She said that in today’s education system, we should be teaching our unique dance, fashion and music styles to attract other students around the globe.

“You will all agree with me that these are areas in entertainment that the whole world already identifies Nigerians speciality. We initiate a dance step, the entire world copy and via modern technology, it goes viral across different social channels”, Modupe stressed.    

The Way Forward

Some solutions proposed by Schoolingyonda will interest government institutions, administrators in the education sector, parents and the ultimate benefactors – Students. The firm argues that there is a pressing need for Nigeria to argument the existing programs especially in our tertiary institutions and centres of learning.

Nigeria has some unique dance styles which can be researched, recorded, designed and crafted into programs to be learnt by students from diverse regions. This will further increase the interest of young Nigerians in the arts and creativity.

The firm also proffers that there is a need to bring our dance and music into academic learning for posterity, developing history and increased diversity. Restructuring the arts with a good blend of our traditional and contemporary dance will definitely spark positive global attention.

Considering the CBN’s release of $680m for foreign education in 2022, Modupe believes we have all the necessary skills and talents to harness the economic benefits in creative arts. She advocates we introduce innovative programs infused into our traditional music, fashion and dance across selected public and private institutions. Schoolingyonda is an educational consultancy service with the goal to offer students personalised study thereby assisting parents and their wards to acquire opportunities abroad.
