Prof. Hussein Sert, the Vice-Chancellor of Nigerian Turkish Nile University (NTNU), said that 17 percent of students in the institution were on scholarship.

Sert told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Saturday the institution offered scholarship to students that performed excellently in pre-university examinations.

According to him, some state governments also sponsor their students in the institution.

“Over 17 percent of our 700 students are studying under scholarship; we offer scholarship to students who perform excellently well in JAMB and WAEC.

“All top performers at the International Science Olympiad get scholarship and we also send students to Turkey for exchange programme,’’ he said.

He said that 70 percent of the lecturers in the school were Nigerian, adding that NTNU did not compromise standard of learning and quality of lecturers.

“We look for high quality lecturers; in the first year of this university, we laid off 10 lecturers because they were not meeting our standards.

“The minimum qualification for being a graduate assistant in the school is a master’s degree while lecturers must have Ph.D,’’ Sert said.

The vice chancellor said that the NTNU had students from Turkey, Cameroon, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, among others.
