The LASG contacted the British Council in Nigeria earlier this year to express an interest in partnering with international institutions to support its ambition to set up international standard higher education institutions in Lagos.  LASG requested the British Council’s support to broker a meeting for them to engage with UK Higher Education institutions with strong ODL programmes. 

The British Council organised a meeting for the LASG to meet with a cross-section of UK institutions and organisations working in the Higher Education and TVET sectors in June 2018.
