    Pls which one is it?

  2. I saw 250k for fee, is this the tuition fee or application fee?

    Secondly is there a possibility that you would have a course on American sign language or British sign language in the nearest future?

    • Hi, Debby.

      For students in Nigeria, they will take their exams at our learning centers spread across the country, closer to each students’ location.

      For international students, they will take their exams online.
