Alumni Success: From Nigeria to Birmingham

Josephine’s journey from Nigeria to Birmingham with NCUK

  • Josephine Balogun
  • From Nigeria 
  • Completed NCUK International Foundation Year and International Year One
  • Progressed to Aston University, BSc International Business and Management
Why did you choose to study with NCUK?
I opted to study with NCUK because it was recommended to me by a friend who was already enrolled in the programme, and I was told about the numerous benefits, such as a the guaranteed* entry at an NCUK University. With an NCUK qualification one is receiving a world-class education.
How has your NCUK experience helped you to get to where you are today?
With my NCUK International Foundation Year, I was able to progress into NCUK International Year One and complete my first year of university in my home country (Nigeria), and then I was able to progress to my second year of study at Aston University with the aid of my teachers, friends, and family.
I am happy I chose to study an NCUK qualification and I am unsure where I would be right now if I had not done my International Foundation Year and International Year One qualifications.
What are your goals for the future?
My current ambitions for the future are to continue discovering and learning more about myself. I want to be able to look back in 5 years and be satisfied with myself and the mistakes I made along the way since I know it is not simple to attain your goals.
Do you have any advice for future NCUK students?

Study hard, take breaks and remember to always believe in yourself!
