    As a Nigerian, I know how horrible Unis in Third-World countries can be. I am going to University of Lagos and merely looking at their hostels nearly makes me puke. I want to know if this is a norm in many similar countries around the world. Feel free to share your experience.

    Thing is it costs money and the rich send their kids abroad.

    For very bright pupils then there are things like this, but the chances are so small.
    the one good thing is that with the internet you can get some teaching for free or a distance learning course for much less. I dont know which countries have unis which are just as good, but free? Maybe Cuba?
