No more 4-year university degrees for Nigerian students in US, says Homeland Security .

Nigerian students Abroad
 Nigerians who intend to study in the United States (US) will henceforth not be allowed to stay there for up to four years based on the nation's new proposed immigration policy. 


According to the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Thursday, September 24, international students from a list of countries, including Nigeria, will get only a two-year visa to study in the nation.

The DHS disclosed that this new rule is meant to “encourage program compliance, reduce fraud and enhance national security.” 

This proposed policy is based on the theory that it will be less difficult to trace security threats and monitor adherence. 

Nigeria is one of the nations termed state sponsors of terrorism and those who usually spend more time in the US beyond what is allowed in their visas
