Tertiary level education forms the bedrock of high level manpower development in any nation. This highlights the need for a qualitative education at this level. There is a dearth of instructions and infrastructure to cater for the needs of our ever increasing number of secondary school leavers. This has made it imperative for the private sector to take initiatives in the areas of providing tertiary education, especially for an organization that has a track record in providing high quality education.
The Nigerian Turkish International College started with humble beginnings in September 1998. The school opened with 23 students on a rented site at Cairo Street, Wuse 2, Abuja. Like an acorn, the NTIC has proliferated into a network of schools located in Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Lagos, Ogun and Yobe States.
This phenomenal growth is attributable to the quality of Education obtainable in the NTIC Group of Schools. It is against this background that the parents and students of the NTIC have mounted pressure on the Management to establish a university that will carry on the tradition of the NTIC at the tertiary level.
In response to this, the parent company of the NTIC (SURAT Nigeria Ltd) came up with the idea of having a world class university in Abuja. This is how the Nigerian Turkish Nile University was born.
