I have worked in a private hospital in Lagos, Nigeria, as a registered nurse/midwife at St. Andrew's Hospital. Before my studies at Sunderland I was working at Hamad Medical Corporation, a government hospital in Qatar as a staff nurse/midwife in the labour and delivery suites, doing what I love most – helping women throughout the antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care.
I wanted to improve my nursing skills, to provide evidence-based care to my clients and also for my career advancement, so I knew I would need to upgrade my diploma certificates to BSc level. I had been looking for an opportunity to further my education like this for years, and then I found out about the University of Sunderland. A friend of mine finished her BSc Nursing (Top-Up) at the University and she recommended it to me and told me about the quality of the academics and pleasant campus environment.
So far, I have been enjoying the quality academics, excellent learning facilities and campus, and the friendly and supportive lecturers too. I have received discounted tuition fees through a scholarship and an early payment discount, which is a huge financial relief. I would definitely recommend the University of Sunderland to other students and have been doing so already.
I have a strong belief that when I complete the course, it is going to give me the advantage of gaining a better salary, a higher position and skill for improved healthcare services.
There is no regret studying at the University of Sunderland because I believe that it’s one of the best places for me to achieve my dream in order to fit in and to practice anywhere in the world as a professional nurse, as the certificates of the University are well recognised. In general, Sunderland is a safe, multicultural (it has a lot of international students), friendly and harmonious society.”
