Adenike Ojo - MSc E-Business (graduated 2010)
I chose to study in the UK because UK Education's reputation is internationally recognised. The University of Bolton excels in its international representation and marketing. I found out about the University from its agents in Nigeria and thereafter visited the website. I did my research and I liked what I saw and heard .The University also has a good reputation amongst its international representatives hence it wasn't difficult to make the choice.
The facilities cater for the needs of the University of Bolton students. There is good access to updated journals and books as well. I have used the University's Job Shop to search for jobs and now I actually work at the University courtesy of this service. Working as a student ambassador has been wonderful. The University of Bolton may not be massive in size but I can say for sure that it is small enough to recognise you as an individual and big enough to meet all your needs!
I'm enjoying my course a lot. It's challenging, innovative and career enhancing with limitless opportunities. The lecturers are highly skilled with vast experience and offer excellent academic support. Group activities in lectures make it easy to make friends. I am also an active member of the International society which consists of all international students and host events of interest and terrific trips.
You need to be open minded, determined to excel and make the most of your time as a student. I am open to all the opportunities that come along my way and as a career minded person I believe the sky is just the beginning!
Be yourself, smile always and don't be shy!
