Student views

We have a good number of Nigerian students, joining our International Community every year. Read what some of our Nigerian students shared with us about Worcester.


Olufon Muyiwa from Lagos, Nigeria

I am Olufon Muyiwa, a third year student of the University of Worcester. I am Nigerian by birth and a permanent resident of Lagos, Nigeria. Coming from a middle class family, with a mother passionate about education, I currently study Networks and Information Security. My choice of the University of Worcester was down to 3 reasons: the international scholarship, the cost of living, and graduate employability.

I have always been very ambitious and I believed the University was the right institution to shape my dreams and bring them to reality. So far, I can say I have not been let down. I am currently the Chair of the Worcester Debate Union and representative to the World Business Dialogue in Cologne, Germany.

Apart from extracurricular activities, I can confidently say I have seen teaching at its best. With small class sizes you can interact directly with your tutors. Worcester is one of the few places in the UK you can boldly walk about in at night, one sure way to satisfy the night life.

So far, I can categorically say I have not regretted my decision to come to Worcester for the degree I hope to use to impress the world.


Anthony Olusegun Birch from Lagos Nigeria

Management & Human Resources MSc

I'm Anthony Olusegun Birch from Lagos, Nigeria and I am currently pursuing a postgraduate degree in Human Resources and Management. Choosing to study at the University of Worcester was easy, as I had made contact with representatives in Nigeria and they were simply the most affable and helpful.

Though my first degree is in Computer Science, I have found transition into this new field fairly smooth as a great deal of academic support is made available; and the university is highly sensitive and responsive. Getting around the town is not much of a hassle as the setting is quite serene and the locals are friendly. I quickly took note of the fact that people moved freely at any time of the day, not worrying, because of how safe it is.

There is a noticeable setup for all aspects of student life, and the several events and programmes arranged by an array of student groups help to further foster interaction among students and the building of networks. I find the atmosphere quite conducive for studying and engaging in personal development. Also impressive is the manner in which technology is applied to most facets of the institution's operations and processes.

From the moment I set foot on this campus, I have been receiving brainwaves and continue to gather inspiration that would facilitate my aspiration to become a leading entrepreneur back home. Coming to the University of Worcester, for me, was a step in the right direction.

 


Nkechi Odum

Nursing Studies (for overseas nurses) MSc

It feels great to study here at the University of Worcester and it is an open door to lots of opportunities. The lecturers are the best I have come across. They are always there for me, motivating and encouraging me. Here the atmospheres encourage learning, the facilities are up to date and fellow students are friendly and nice too.

Initially I chose Worcester because of the cool, serene and friendly neighbourhood. My landlady is one of the best people I have met here in Worcester and local families took me out during the Christmas period. Worcester City itself is a quiet place and has given me a very good impression of the UK. Crime rate is next to zero (I lost my purse with valuables and an anonymous student returned it to security!). Living in Worcester is relatively cheap compared to other parts of the UK too.

I have enjoyed meeting friends from different backgrounds and cultures, working in more advanced healthcare settings. I want to graduate on time, then be able to be an ambassador of the university back in Nigeria so I can encourage more prospective students to come to the University of Worcester. It is an experience every prospective international student should avail themselves. It is simply fascinating and worth experiencing.


Akachukwu Obi-Okolie

Nursing Studies (for overseas nurses) BSc

I first found out about the University of Worcester when I visited the University fair in my home town and was overwhelmed by the friendly nature that greeted me.

Being an international student here is quite great, a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, where lecturers are interested in your success and facilities are available to support you 24/7. The support you receive from your tutors and the ICT facilities and conducive classrooms available are partly why I enjoy being an international student here so much. The tutors will give you extra time which is quite amazing and you get free books and net books to borrow too.

I have found it quite easy to make friends especially with international students from all over the world; this is supported by the international team, by organising trips and programme for international students. You make friends in your accommodation which I found to be comfortable, to suit your interest and good range of options available.

Studying at the University of Worcester has given me opportunities such as promoting my employability, sharpening my skills, boosting my confidence, broadening my horizon, and learning to use teamwork to be proactive in problem solving.

All I can say is Worcester is a nice place to be and it’s a good place to study if you want a quality education that one can be proud of.
