The accommodation was good. It was a good experience. I met really good people, nice people from different parts of the world. That is the beauty of international studies because I got to meet people I had never met before. Back home in Nigeria I hardly get to meet people from different countries.

I chose to study in Strathclyde because it is one of the top business universities in the UK. When I saw their accreditation and how they were also one of the top entrepreneurial universities, it was something that really struck me because I feel like I’m a budding entrepreneur. I felt that this is something that I can relate to and this university would be a good platform for me where I could grow my entrepreneurial abilities.

Progressed to Management
 
When I started at the International Study Centre, the people who worked there really made us comfortable. They knew that international people were scared to study abroad alone, but facing challenges made me realise that I need to take more responsibility. I think challenges like studying abroad are interesting and exciting. You meet new people from all around the world and learn different cultures.
