Over 72 Nigerian students have travelled to Turkey to achieved their dream for quality education through an educational service provider in the country, Jmatt Educational Consult Limited.
Prior their departure to Turkey in January 2021, parents of the excited students going for their graduates and undergraduates studies expressed joy for their children’s admission and appreciation to Jmatt Educational Consult Limited for also helping them secure visa.
Recounting how they encountered the educational consult, Barrister and Mrs Goodluck Joseph, parent to Sonia Joseph explained that an Aunty of theirs living in America told them about Jmatt. According to them, they were initially skeptical because there are lots of fraudulent travel agents out there. Upon enquiries with Mr Olajide Aluko, CEO of Jmatt Education Consult Limited, and the testimonies from past students who went through them to study in Turkey, they were convinced.
The couples believes the Turkish study is an opportunity for their daughter as the country is said to have good education. As our daughter is travelling, we are going to miss her. But the company is promising us that by June or July parents would visit the students in school and they would pave the way for us. So we are good,” said Mrs. Nonye Joseph.
Speaking with Travellers Magazine, Sonia Joseph going for a four years course in Sociology reiterated that she is grateful to God for the opportunity to study in Turkey. Most importantly, she feels fortunate about it as some of her mates do not have the opportunity that she has.
When my mum told me about the Jmatt, I was having doubt like should I just stay here to complete my education or should I go because we have been on strike for more than a year now. So I asked my friends on WhatsApp that if they have the opportunity to go to Turkey will they go? They were like we will jump at it. So I was like this is a great opportunity so I decided to opt in,” explained Babatunde Ololade from Lagos State.
Ololade thinks the educational system in th country is substandard having been to two in the country. He adviced that government should find something to do to it. “Most of my friends in school are already tired, they just want to get certificate, they are not interested about the learning anymore,” he said.
Ololade and the rest students promised their parents and Jmatt to be good ambassadors of Nigeria in Turkey.

Explaining the procedure, he said: “On arrival to Turkey, they would be taken around the country and, their feeding and accommodation is going to be taken care of as it has been paid for. After which they would start the processing of their resident permits.
“After all this has been arranged with their health insurance, they can start their language learning course. It’s a one-year course which is compulsory. The Turkey government takes the language course serious to an extent that if it is been failed it would be a carry-over. After completing the language learning is when they would start their actual course so we wish them best of luck in their education.”
