Alumni Success: From Kenya to Leeds

Jabu’s journey from Kenya to Leeds with NCUK

  • Jabu Issa
  • From Kenya
  • Completed NCUK International Foundation Year
  • University of Leeds, BA International Relations
Why did you choose to study with NCUK?
I felt that I needed motivation before I step out to a new foreign place. NCUK was the best option because I could start the foundation I needed in my home country where I strongly feel I belong and not so far away from home. Hence I did the International Foundation Year under NCUK at their Study Centre in Nairobi.
How has your NCUK experience helped you to get to where you are today?
I had an amazing experience. It has linked me to many Universities in the UK through the friends I made while doing the International Foundation Year qualification. It has given me chance to interact with people who are going to different cities to study and that connection can play a vital role as I am about to pursue my studies in International Relations
What are your goals for the future?
I am looking forward to many things but of them all is to make best of the foundation that NCUK has helped me to build. I am actually looking forward to work with NCUK one day especially in putting my studies in International Relations to practice.
Do you have any advice for future NCUK students?

My advice to future NCUK students is to make best memories while studying an NCUK qualification. The guidance in choosing the right university based on career is very crucial. You might need someone while you are home away from home and the ones available might be those you were with while under NCUK.
