  • University challenges are quite worrisome and the fact that university nowadays is not really interesting anymore. Lecturers not attending lectures, no proper document or subject to the course of study and many more.  Maybe something better happens to this kind of challenges, it's not making us proud to be university 🎓 graduate 🎓

  • University or campus is World of its own. The problems or activity going on in Nigeria University is worries some. I think government authority and school authority should go back to the drawing board. We're no longer having a conducive environment for teaching and learning to take place.

  • University of now is what the call "walk as you like". Students now are not even going for lecture halls and lecturers are feeling so reluctant with their mindsets that students will do what they know is right for them to be able to pass with First Class or second class upper.

    The Government should enable to help the school with an intensive rules and regulations to guides the school, lecturers and students to reach their aim in life

  • Nigerian universities is like an entire planet of its own because a whole goes down in campus that either makes or mares a student. Lectureres and gigantic assignments was one hitch I'll never forget most especially after a long boring lecture. Indeed our university system needs a checkup but without any asuu strike please.

  • The lecturers are the major problems in Nigerian universities nowadays. Most of them fail students for no reason or ask students to buy expensive books and failure to do that,the student fails. Lots of students commit suicide because of these lecturers and a lot of other students die in silence because of fear. Solution should be brought to issues like this because it doesn't make our country a suitable place to study.

  • University is both a beautiful and difficult place to be. There must be something to make you stare your brain. University has so much more to offer, but a person must not allow the challenges to affect the idea of University. Everyday and everywhere has its own troubles. So just be focused and ask for God's help.

  • The university is different world on its own. In this world the lecturers and students(cultists) rule leaving the poor students to their mercy, the challenges of the university are so tough, the school government should try reducing the stress and threats in the university .

  • Well I believe that the issue of maybe students in the midst of lazy company and not being serious with their studies is not a major challenge because it's something that can be controlled by that student. The major challenge is when a student reads and studies as his recommended to do page to page write all the test fulfills all necessary requirements of a particular cause and lecturer write an exam with all conviction after studying that he will pass the exam and at the end of the day he comes out as a failed course and later the electoral requires from him a particular sum of money or from her s8x, all students who literally don't live in accommodations because the school doesn't have enough accommodation for the high population in the university, all the parts that every staff of the university wants to extort money from you from the gateman to the portal to the h o d to all the lecturers and Deans even the admin staff. The value system has been watered down and their is corruption everywhere. Nigeria just looks like a lost cause.

  • University campus these days are turning to something else, the economy has affected a lot that even the lecturers wants students to sort before they could pass their courses, school riots almost ever time. It's only God who can protect us. Well these are all training

  • I will suggest that to do to overcome this is to create more time of visiting our choldren been a parent. This will save a.student from financial challenges and more so , the school authority should reinforce the strength of security for the student. If possible once in a while they should allow police to come withing unaware to conduct patrol, especially by night. This will be a treath to the cultist.

  • There are actually many problems students face in the university. For instance freshers just coming into the school for the first time who don't know anyone there and has no guide. Orienting thereselves to the school can be a big challenge for them. And what if they are as unfortunate as to mix with the wrong crowd.

  • You didn't add the fact that lecturers intentionally fail students for no resson at all, it's just so sad!

    After reading intensely, sleepless nights, you go to the exam hall, finish with confidence only for the result to come out and you'll be seeing a grade not worth your effort . 

    They make all our efforts look like nothing. 

    And when you ask them, they say it's not possible for all of us to pass, that they need to intentionally fail some of us.

    Can you imagine!

  • The entire idea of schooling in a country with a messed up system is just appalling. Talking about chanlleges, take the curriculum for example that's an entire challenge on it's own. It's exhausting and ineffective. Another challenge is the lecturers, especially the older ones who haven't gotten to private schools to teach or gone out of the country, their entire method is just sad

  • Environment contributes a lot some institutions are not well located and some schools are not having hostels student have to rent house and most of the house are not condusive. No morden toilet facilities  portable waters and the likes. More so a lot of social activities distract students a lot.

  • Parents deficiency.. A child whose parents fight every now and then and doesn't even wanna listen to their children talk nor take time to visit them once in a while at school night affect the child morally,academically and so on... I will advise that such issues listened above should be addressed immediately

  • University it not just a place where you can go and have fun and be happy always no.. It a place where you will face different challenges in life... So that you can learn from it and know where you are going in life... So to me it not a bad thing for students to face challenges but it right... Ones you are there... You are alone and you most know why you are there and know where came from... So let it be this way... So that people will be wise and have sense in life

  • The challenges we students face are quite worrisome at times. University or campus is World of its own. The problems or activities going on in Nigeria University is worrisome. I think government authority and school authority should go back to the drawing board. We're no longer having a conducive environment for teaching and learning to take place because lecturers do not lecture and will set exam questions to be answered, harassment by cultists are the worse as it happens often even to me recently and led to the death of a popular student. The government and the school management should please look into this issues.
