A Nigerian lady living in the United Kingdom and working as a medical doctor on Tuesday recounted how she was asked to sit for an English language test before she could start her Master's degree in a university in the country.
The lady, whose Twitter handle is @simisola10, who said she had been working as a doctor in UK for 14 years, said she was asked to sit for an English language test before she could start her Master's degree in Health Policy and Leadership at the Imperial College in London.

She added that what took her by surprise was that she had been practicing as a medical doctor in the country and no one asked her to write any English language test but when she wanted to do her Master's degree programme, the university asked her to do so.
There have been various complaints by some Nigerians who want to study in the UK and who are made to write English language proficiency courses despite the fact that they did all their academic programmes in English language in Nigeria.
According to the lady, when she was told that she would write the English language test before she could start her programme, she complained in writing, through online and also in the class, but nothing came out of it.
Below is the screenshot of the lady's tweet on the issue:
