POSTGRADUATE PERSONAL STATEMENTS

Management

Business Management


Business is the way of the world. Shopping, buying, selling, promoting, discounting, are all business activities and we as individuals are involved with in it some way, every day. It’s a field that I am greatly interested in, and wish to learn more about. Although I have a broad range of interests, I have always been drawn to business management because to me it’s a very exciting environment with lots of demands and challenges. However the thing that excites me the most about business management is the way it can directly and indirectly affect the lives of so many people.

I am a forward thinking individual who has drive, ambition and ability, all of which are traits that are vital for effective business management. I posses strong team-working skills, am able to work individually or as part of a group, and have excellent organisational skills that I have gained through my academic and work experience.

I feel the three most important points I learnt so far from my work experience, is firstly the ability to understand what drives a business, and the processes needed to help resolve any barriers to continued growth and profitability. Secondly being able to look beyond the numbers to the business trends and drivers, and thirdly being able to work to deadlines and handle pressure.

I am a social person who enjoys spending time with friends and family. I like to be a part of my local community, where I help out at events and activities.

I am now looking for an opportunity to further my personal development and career progression by enrolling with a reputable university on a business management master’s degree course. I want to learn more about the nature, power and limitations of various business techniques; how management can influence a business' performance; how business and other types of organisations can help society to function and address societal problems.

As a citizen, who has opportunities given to him to achieve his goals, I want to make impact on my country Nigeria, my state and my community by utilizing the knowledge I have acquired from my studies. It will be wonderful to be part of those who can make a good change in a country’s economy globally.




Engineering & Management


PERSONAL STATEMENT

My name is Omamuli Blackson Faka, I am from Delta State, Nigeria. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria.

From my childhood I have always been amazed at the sight of massive structures like bridges, multi-story buildings, dams and how they are built. My desire to go for a masters degree in Engineering and Management is interwoven with my earlier decision to study civil engineering in the University. The curiosity of knowing how to bring to life a design or drawing on paper through practical application of certain technological principles which is what engineering is all about makes civil engineering an ideal course for me.

I look at the chance of pursuing a master degree programme in engineering and management as an opportunity to broaden my knowledge on civil engineering which has contract preparation, execution and management as an integral part it.Also,I currently work in an engineering firm in a limited supervisory role were have got to work alongside other people and had the privilege to gain firsthand experience of putting to practice some of the theory learnt in my university lectures and having to manage both human and material resources as part of my primary duties, Therefore having an MSc in engineering and management will surely enhance my ability to function properly in such related duties at work and give me the chance to aim higher in my career.

Having gone through the coursework, it was interesting to note that the course covers a wide range of areas including:

  • Contract Management.
  • Human Resource Management/Skills.
  • Project Management.
  • Operations Management.

All this generally makes it an ideal choice for me.

The opportunity to further my studies also gives me a wide range of opportunities through interacting with different people, experiencing diverse cultures, learning and sharing ideas and making new friends from across the continents of the world.

Coming from a developing country like Nigeria where will still encounter various infrastructural and developmental problems in terms of funding, execution and completion of projects. By holding a masters degree in engineering and management, I firmly believe that I will acquire the requisite knowledge to contribute my own quota in tackling the infrastructural development challenges facing my country.

Personally I will like to boost my career after successfully acquiring my masters degree by seeking employment in a reputable multinational company where i can use my knowledge acquired in working and gaining more experience, while also aiming for a PhD in Civil Engineering, After which I hope to own my own firm where I can manage and mentor a set of employees to become more efficient in managing human resources, contract management, engaging in consultancy services and project works execution.

As an indigene of an oil producing community in the delta area, I am eligible for scholarship from various government agencies tasked with the responsibility of enhancing human capital and infrastructural development of the oil producing communities within the Niger delta. Agencies such as

Marketing & Advertising


STATEMENT OF INTENT With utmost pleasure I wish to make my intent known to study advertising at your institution. I have not had the opportunity to study advertising as a course, but it is something I have the flair for, it comes naturally to me. I actually studied English and Literary studies at my university here in Nigeria. I know there is a link with English and Literary studies and advertising because advertising has to do with choice of words and vocabulary, making use of the right words to paint a mental picture. Studying poetry as a course under English and Literary studies has helped a lot, as it has helped me in creating works that are captivating making use of the right figures of speech. In poetry words are used to catch a reader's feelings and attention, making them imagine things, same also applies to advertising Copywriting for example focuses mainly on verbalization, I chose this course because verbalization has a link to English and Literary studies which I have read as a course, with the right dictions one can make an advert come to life. The advert will speak to the people seeing it without actually talking, that's the power of right verbalization, with this close relationship adapting into this course will be much easier. After the completion of my degree I would want to work with companies and individuals that need the right type of advertising to sell their products. My country Nigeria has other natural resources apart from oil, they have other job opportunities that are not fully exhausted, due to ignorance. making everybody concentrate on a particular sector. The problem is due to lack of information and technical know-how. with this course I will be able to carry out a good campaign and run advertisements as eye opener to people that all lost in different areas in the economy due to lack of information and awareness.




Public Administration


The purpose of the study is to enhance my knowledge of administrative functions.

The essence of this study is that it will help to enhance my capability as an Administrative Officer by creating a theoretical base on which I can build a practical frame work in carrying out my duties which will eventually help to uphold the integrity of the shared vision of my employer establishment.

With the knowledge attained from this study of public administration, as an Administrative Officer, my duties will be more efficient and effective leading to a better service delivery and this will create a ripple effect of growth and development not just in Delta State but in Nigeria as a whole.




Energy Management


I was born in Warri. Delta State located in the southern part of Nigeria. This part of the country is rich in its oil reserve and production. My father is an engineer and has been involved in the industry for over a decade now and growing up I have aspired to be like him and this has been my drive.

During my primary education and I did excellently well in my studies and this gave me a good background to excel in any field I may choose. However, in during my secondary education, there was a family incident that affected greatly my studies. I even had to repeat a class in order to get back on track. Due to this, I had to move into a field where I felt more comfortable and could handle effectively. I learnt from my failures and knew I could be better at anything I put my mind to. I worked harder in my studies, and this elevated me morally and mentally. I was made the dinning prefect and also elected the Press Club President. With this sense of responsibility I became more matured in my thinking and behavior and this prepared me better for the higher education world of the university.

I got admission to study business management in Girne American University in North Cyprus and I did my best to get good grades and come out with the best I can. I graduated with a 3.29 CGPA out of 4.00 and I am very certain I worked hard enough to get what I got. During my studies in Cyprus, I was introduced into the dual degree learning program that was organized by my school and National American University located in the United States of America. Due to my hard work and persistence, I was included in the dean’s list and the president list respectively in two different semesters. Unfortunately due to financial misunderstanding between the two universities, the program could not continue and I had to go back to the single degree program.

Towards the end of my undergraduate program, I knew I had to make a decision on what would be my next step. I did a lot of research and I discovered that I could still be like my father but from a different angle. I saw MSc in Energy Management as a course that would create a path in the oil and gas sector for me. I intend to be a business developer in this industry and use my acquired knowledge to create an impact in the industry that would help propel it to the next level of development. I observed that this university could offer me the right courses and an innovative learning environment to help me achieve my goals in life.




Engineering Management


I have a Bachelors degree in Electrical / Electronics Engineering from Madonna University in Okija, Anambra State, Nigeria.

As a young child, I was fascinated with the way things work. I often opened up my toys to find out what made their electronic and automated parts work. Hence I earned the nick name “Scientist” from my family and friends.

My choice of Engineering and Management as a course of postgraduate study is born out of my desire to combine my first degree studies with my work experience. I currently work in an Engineering firm where I manage people, project and materials as well as negotiating contracts in the Petroleum industry. I have also undergone a formal training in Project Management with Warri Business School.

Having studied the course work on the your website, I saw that the course covers a broad area which I am specifically interested in, some of which include the following.

  • Contracts Management
  • Project Management
  • Human Resources Management

This post graduate degree program will help to broaden my general engineering and management knowledge as well as appreciation of some of the requirements and challenges of how a practicing Engineer should combine proven / emerging Technology with resource management to achieve both specific and broader objectives. The successful integration and application of these elements will allow me to operate more effectively in a wide range of engineering and management roles, as the full potential of technological advances can only be fully realized if they are effectively and efficiently managed using proven principles and methodologies. At the end of this program I hope to be better equipped and be able to do this within the context of today’s engineering and general management environment.

Studying abroad will give me the opportunity to meet and work with people from different parts of the world, exchanging experiences, knowledge and ideas in an environment which is rich in the culture of impacting sound and proven knowledge to people seeking an advancement in their understanding of the society in general and the complex environment which we live in. This coupled along with using special technologies that make each day better and give the platform to project into the future where additional and boundless opportunities exist.

An international Masters program will groom me intellectually and embellish my knowledge, bring prosperity in terms of wealth of knowledge and would make me a ladder of success for others to climb contributing to the evolution of my country and human society as a whole. This would also improve my standard of living as it will enable me get a better job and gain more experience. On my return to Nigeria it is also my intention to build a robust career for myself after working for a number of years and thereafter set up my own Engineering firm and build up a successful business.

Upon completion of my postgraduate academic pursuit in the United Kingdom, it is my intention to bring back my learning experience to further contribute to the economic development and advancement of my country. This will be my own small contribution towards ensuring sustainability of our country’s growth plan and harnessing the human and natural resources locally for a structured management and development of potentials that exist in these areas and even beyond.

I am a determined and enthusiastic person who will make good use, if given the opportunity to study Engineering and Management at this great University.




Human Resource Management


To have a refined knowledge in human resource management in a conducive and well structured environment coupled with good teaching aids and also to make good decisions and how to recognize and respond to a wide range of individuals influence on business and the strategies to improve organizational and individual performance in my future career.

Based on the exposure and human managerial skills I acquired during my undergraduate program and extra-curriculum activities I believe I can adapt to this course and do exceedingly great.

The benefit of this course is to determine the impact of human resource management practices on organizational performance of companies in Nigeria as well as examining whether the effectiveness of its practices on organizational performance is reliant on organization work place climate.




Human Resource Management


My interest in international Human Resource management dates back to my university and my national youth services corps years. Pursuing a musters degree is a responsibility I owe to myself as well as a commitment I have to others.

I refer to it as a responsibility because I have a proactive outlook on life, which makes me actively seek and go after the things that I want to accomplish in life. I refer to it as a commitment because I want to be an example to others of the attainments and contribution to society.

My first introduction to International Human Resource Management came as a result of an encounter with ANINO AJEMIGBOGHO, General Manager Human Resources Anbli-Multi-Global Link Ltd.

It was as a result of this encounter that I was able to get detailed understanding of the roles played by Human Resource in tackling human issues and consequently in organizational success. In light of this, I have decided to take up the masters program in International Human Resource management because I am interested in the role it plays in achieving organizations goals and objective, key among them being hiring and training the best employees, and dealing with performance issues.

I am a graduate of Guidance and counseling/ physics from university of Ibadan and I also have a certificate of Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM). My Guidance and Counseling/Physics degree has provided me with a strong foundation as well as fortified me with good Guidance and Communications skills, personal Communications as well as organizational communications skills, bearing in mind that the importance of proper Guidance and communication in the business environment cannot be over-emphasized.

In the same vein, professionals of Guidance’s and managers recognize the importance of good business practices. My career goal is to work in a leading firm that place priority on professionalism and lead such organization towards attainment of set goals by making use of knowledge garnered as well as experience.

Ten years from now I see myself as a human resource consultant, providing professional advice so that others can make the best decisions. I behave a masters degree in International Human Resource Management is all I need to make this dream come true.

It fits the profile of this goal, perhaps some of my grandest attributes is that I am smart, hardworking, and inquisitive. I am always willing to learn and I appreciate every opportunity to learn new things or old ones differently.

I am sensitive and genuinely interested in others, which makes me confident that IHRM is the path I want to tread. Human Resources are vital to any organization and the society: without people the organization and the society would not function.

I chose this University because of its great reputation, its renowned academic excellence, and good industry links as well as flexible postgraduate schemes.

I look forward to being a part of a renowned institution as your institution. I firmly believe that the right education in the right school will open doors of advancement in my chosen field of study.




International Relation


My Personal Statement

Throughout my travels, studies, and experience in the world, I have been able to attain what I hope to be a worldly and open-minded perspective. In my efforts to further broaden and improve this perspective, and fully pursue all of my academic passions, I hope to have the privilege of attending university in the United Kingdom.

It was only within the past year that I have recognized my passion in the subject of International Relations. I have always had an interest in almost anything the world has to offer, obsessed with understanding the way the world works, and why it works that way. But my diversity of interest has not led me astray in finding my greatest passion; in fact, it has helped me harness it. By studying and exploring a diverse variety of interests, I found that my true interest lies in understanding and exploring the way the whole of global society functions, which has led to my passion in International Relations.

Within academics, I have challenged myself to succeed as much as I have been able, in efforts to better myself both as a student and as an individual. I have been awarded my school's Award for Academic Excellence in the Area of Social Studies and have strived to challenge myself academically to my upmost capacity by taking 12 Advanced Placement Courses over my high school years, seven of which I am currently taking this year. The rigor of my academics has also allowed me to partake in studies that have further enhanced my knowledge and interest in International Studies: my study of US political relations in AP Government and Politics and in-depth analysis of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in AP World Literature being areas of study I have particularly enjoyed. This year I was also elected President of my school's chapter for National Honor Society, which is a program that promotes both academic excellence and community involvement, which has helped me further hone my skills in both leadership and communications.

Outside of the classroom, I have participated in activities that have lent me a global perspective. This year, I have been able to join the Model NGO support clubs for venerable people, which has been an extraordinary experience in learning so closely about an institution that has such an important and central position in the world of global politics and relations. In addition, two years ago I was able to journey to Ghana, where I was able to complete a Community Service Program assisting and rebuilding a rural community. Last summer, I was nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum as well as being accepted as an intern in a reputable organisation in Nigeria. These experiences, though their focuses were broad, have been key in my development of leadership skills and personal independence, as well as inciting my passion in the international community.

I have strived to excel not only in academics, but in attaining a perspective and point of view that will allow me to not only understand the world of International Relations, but also contribute my own theories and understanding of the subject to the world. I sincerely hope my pursuits in being a well-rounded and globally oriented student and individual has allowed me enough qualification to attend your university and hope to further broaden my perspective by attending such a high standing university in an entirely new country.




Business Management


I have chosen this institution and course because I have passion for business and I know it will enhance my creative and innovative abilities in business. I have interest in managing resources and also to be socially responsible to the host community where the business is located.

In studying this course, I know the training and skills I will receive from the institution will help a great deal on how to administer corporate social responsibilities, manage resources and in the end all the parties involved will benefit from the administration of social responsibilities which is very important to a business and it host communities.

My educational goal is aimed at pursuing a career in business administration and management that will enable me offer services to humanity by giving back to the nation by way of dividends on its investment in my career. The hard work and dedication needed to accomplish my goal is not a barrier. I have consistently pursued my education with passion, diligence and enthusiasm.

On the completion of my postgraduate programme, I hope to establish a business of my own and also establish an NGO that will work in collaboration with similar organisations at the international level to advance the promotion of compulsory education and poverty alleviation as well as providing the necessary infrastructures to support the initiative. In partnering with the international community, local branches will be created in all the states of Nigeria with the support of each state government.

My career goal is to be a business manager, someone who focuses on creativity and innovation. I am very passionate about my community and would go the extra mile to advance its growth and development. I have always aspired to pursue a career that would enable me to help people achieve their dreams. I plan to work in collaboration with the community leaders to give back to the community, as I learnt that a lot of youths do not have access to formal education as well career aspirations.

Masters of Business Administration MBA


When I think about the difficulties that I have had to overcome recently, the achievement which I am most proud of may seem like a trifle to other people. However, for me, who lives mostly on tea and coffee, the challenge of spending three days without an electric kettle was a dramatic battle with my habits.

So, last month I was peacefully preparing for my exams and anticipating another portion of coffee when suddenly my old electric kettle made a strange pshhhh sound and passed away. All my attempts to bring it back to life were in vain and I had to accept the fact with dignity and courage. I knew that the challenge would push my mind and body to the limit and the easiest solution would be to go and buy a new one. But there were two circumstances which made me consider other options: first, it was Christmas Eve and I was on a shoestring budget, second, my mom promised to present me a new one in three days. “So, three days?” I thought.

As soon as I had made a decision, I started looking for alternative ways to survive. Not only did I find some, but they also turned out to be healthier and more pleasant than my usual coffee. I found out that fruit smoothies or yoghurts can really add more vitamins to my body and it’s indeed more beneficial to my health and body balance.

So am indeed proud of this achievement, as it taught me that I can always find light at the end of every tunnel in my life, I was addicted to my tea or coffee and it didn’t make me see that they could be other drinks I like which would add more health benefits to me. I am super proud of myself for this achievement I have.




Business Management


Attaining a certain level of achievement is the dream of any aspiring individual especially in areas where they have passion and interest. People tend to have their interest in Sports, Profession, areas of practice and so many other aspects in life. As for me my areas of interest is my academics. My dream is to obtain a degree and Masters in Business and would love to become a good business manager someday. Attaining certain level of excellence in my academics was one of my major achievements and I am absolutely proud of it.

During my degree, it was quite challenging especially with the magnitude of work given to us as well as assessments. I was fully determined that I would pass all my modules without having any issue. I got more worried also in assessment that required we worked in groups and unfortunately I had group members who were not really serious and it became is serious challenge for me.

Now because of how determined I was to pass all my modules I was able to put in extra effort to carry along my other group members and ensure we work together as a team to achieve the assessment work. I put in so much effort which was very obvious because I had made determination to successfully attain my degree without having issues. I also had other issues like being able to adapt to the new environment as well as other students from different cultures. Though these were challenges that occurred more in my first and second year.

At the end of my program, I successfully passed all my modules as well as mu dissertation. I was really glad because it was a dream that had been achieved. To so many other individuals it may look like something normal but to me I see it as an achievement. Knowing what my future ambition is, then this aspect is a mile stone in attaining the highest of my goal. I had become glad and aspired to attain a master in a unique business school which is why I decided to apply to the EU business school.




Business Management


I believe I am, in my opinion, an ideal candidate for the Business Management course. I have been in the working world since the age of 18 (albeit with some exclusions for some very valuable and life changing travelling). I have worked in a sales environment for a number of years and have learned how important it is to market a company 'brand' through emphasising company values and benefits together with confidence and friendliness engages customers to buy into 'said product'.

My application to study the MSc IBM is very vital to me as a means of gaining wider experience in the marketing field. By completing my studies in University of Bedfordshire, this MSc will complement and enhance my Business and Management degree. The application is supported by my evidence of my qualifications, references and my eligibility to study. This will verify the information contained within this application. Though with my background in Business Education, I feel it is necessary that gaining Business management from an international angle of knowledge is vital to my future career because business management has always been something I like personally.

I am an extremely industrious student, and believe the more you put in to studying (as with all aspects of life), the more you get out of it. Studying increases knowledge, and confidence. This in turn increases curiosity, leading to further study. Since deciding I would like to complete my MSc to further my career, I have spent a great deal of time researching all of the options open to me.

From my research, the University of Bedfordshire is my first choice. I have compared this institution with all the alternatives and have decided this is where I would like to study. This decision is due to the good reputation the institution has concerning effective teaching, research and with their business partnerships.

Business Faculty at the University, allows a students to research real life scenarios, and to apply theories to resolve these situations. I believe it is very important to gain Masters from an institution that is well known within the business sector for their progressive and high standard of teaching and development of students, and the University of Bedfordshire is a good example of this.

At the end of my studies, I intend to go back to Nigeria where there are numerous Job opportunities waiting for me in my county. I would love to work for about five years after which I intend to establish my own business consultancy firm and in another ten years would also love to start up a business school.

To succeed in life, you have to remain focussed on what is important to achieve the goal, and therefore it is important to know what you want and why this will help reach where you need to be. This is a self-reflective process, which is not an easy one, but will identify why you want what you do. Part of this process is choosing and applying where you want to study. I would be very happy if I am giving the opportunity here at University of Bedfordshire.




Masters of Business Administration MBA


I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration with a Second class Upper Division from the University of Bedfordshire, United Kingdom. And HND degree in Public Administration from the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, with Upper Credit Division (CGPA 3.16). As a result of my under graduate experience in both Business Administration and Public Administration, specialization and expansion of my knowledge base through further academic pursuit in the field of business Administration has become a pivotal concern to me.

I have realized that the strength of every establishment or organization depends on the effective implementation of her strategies, inline with the vision and mission statement of the organization. As a people oriented business professional, the pursuit of knowledge, visionary leadership qualities and an in-depth understanding of the developmental strategies of the modern day Business life cannot be compromised. This has genuinely convinced me to pursue a Masters degree in business administration.

Furthermore, I am applying for admission into the University of Coventary for a Masters degree programme due to my carrier interest in the field of Business.

I believe that the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) programme of the institution (University of Coventary) would be invaluable in helping me achieve my personal as well as career objectives.

My primary research interests lie in the Information Management option of the programme as designed by your institution and I intend to focus my research on international business and particularity in diversity management.

I am particularly interested in this programme and the institution because the course outline drawn for the Masters of Business Administration programme in the institution is well designed to suit my academic goals, professional objectives, career interest and personal taste.

Additionally, I am convinced that the study of Business Administration, as well as my ability to effectively articulate English Language in both speech and writing has armed me with the requisite knowledge, experience and skills to successfully commence and complete this programme.

Moreover, I am confident that my transferable skills including communication, adaptability and problem solving skills among others, will rightly position me for the task/challenge the programme will present; consequently making me positive and enthusiastic about the programme.




Business Studies


I would like to apply study Business Studies in your institution. Having finished my secondary education, I came up with innovative idea that studying in the UK would make a very successful when I start working in a company. I also quickly realised that pursuing a degree at a UK university would be ideal for me.

After my secondary school, I held a voluntary job as a junior in an investment firm, in order to gain work experience. Having to work to tight deadlines taught me how to work independently as part of a professional team. I learnt that in business, if one person lacks productivity, then everyone else can suffer, and also how to motivate others as a means of preventing such issues. I used the skills learnt to enhance my role as a customer service officer, particularly methods of motivation and delegation, and the significance of being accountable for others. I developed my communication skills, with both colleagues and customers, and proved to be a trustworthy employee.

Being appointed as Deputy Head prefect in the sixth form was a great honour to me. My skills were greatly enhanced by holding this position, as I would often have to listen, and respond to issues brought up by fellow prefects, and students lower down the school. Through activities such as Lunch duty, I learnt the worth of different leadership skills, and that it is important to treat everyone as an individual in order to get results. I was always keen to stay into the evening to help out at school events.

Socialising is very important to me, and I am always keen to meet new people. I enjoy trying new foods to increase my knowledge of different cultures, and my culinary skills will prove very useful in independent university life. I enjoy travelling, and learning about modern history. This was a moving experience for me, and something I will never forget. Music is one of my biggest hobbies, and I use music to help me unwind and reflect on things. I use the internet to keep up with current affairs and sports news.

I have always been a keen sportsman, representing my school in many sporting activities. I enjoy running, particularly competing in sprint races, but also long distance running as a means of keeping fit. I believe that embarking on business studies would broaden my knowledge on how to manage business activities as this is one area I have so much passion for. My intention to study this program in University of Bedfordshire is due to the fact that the University usually have different students from various countries and it would be an opportunity for me to associate with various students from different cultures.

Thank You.




Master of Business Administration - MBA


I studied Demography & Social Statistics at the Covenant University, Nigeria. Some of my greatest attributes is that I am smart, hardworking, and inquisitive. I am always willing to learn and I appreciate every opportunity to learn new things or old ones differently. I am sensitive and genuinely interested in others, which makes me confident that with these qualities and sound business knowledge, the sky would be the limit for me. My degree from the university as well as the experience I have gathered from my job has provided me with a very strong foundation, good communications skills, as well as organizational communications skills for my future career and this has encouraged me to pursue a master’s degree in business administration. Pursuing this master’s degree is a responsibility I owe to myself. I decided to choose this course because I know that it would be critical for me in achieving my lifetime goal of owning and managing my personal company in the near future.

I am greatly impressed by and admire the entrepreneurs in my country, most of who have obtained this degree to enhance their knowledge and skills and are thriving despite the challenging business environment in Nigeria. The main things that interest me about an MBA programme is the fact that it encompasses all aspects of running a business and is not in any way limiting to the type or nature of the business I choose to grow. My career goal is to work in a decent and professional organisation for at least 5 years, gather enough work experience, hone my leadership and motivational skills and obtain an MBA degree to adequately put me on the right platform to achieve my dreams and aspirations. Ten years from now, I see myself as a business owner and manager in a profitable field or sector, meeting clients’ needs and posting impressive turnover. I believe a master’s degree in Business Administration is key in making the best (and objective) business decisions in managing my company if I am to be successful at it.

My first introduction to Business Management came as a result of an encounter I had with a senior colleague at my current place of work, Mr. Adewale Onanuga, who was the Head of Business Process Management of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, but was effectively able to utilise his MBA degree to contributing immensely to the business decisions of the Corporation. My work experience has already helped me develop many of the requisite skills for my career and the degree. I previously worked at an Audit firm and later in a government agency before my current job at a multi-billion naira government Corporation. The experience convinced me that I have the requisite interpersonal and management skills to excel as an entrepreneur, which has made me even more determined to achieve my career goal.

While carrying out my research on various institutions that offer MBA programs, I came to a decision to choose the University of Bedfordshire to acquire an MBA education simply because the school is designed to meet the needs of early career individuals like myself and is also structured to support my aspirations for fast track career progression. I also want to become part of a great network of professionals and companies and to constantly challenge myself with problem-solving.

My application is attached with my CV and all other necessary documents.

I hope I have been able to adequately convince you of my choices and interests to be chosen to go through a master’s degree in business management with your institution.

Thank you.




Business management


I graduated from Lead City University in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria in 2012 with a Bachelor degree in Economics, As part of the requirements for a degree in Economics, I took some business courses that introduced me to different ways consumers react to change in price, taste and behaviour and even some micro & macroeconomics factors. Business is an exciting course with a broad scope that would challenge my mental capacity and further equip me in the business world. After my degree in Economics I discovered that it was not what i really wanted.

In my home country, there are limited slots when admitted and sometimes you have to make do with courses available, in my thorough search for a course that suits me I stumbled on Top up in International Business. When i was much younger my uncle had this grocery store which I used to run for him and I got so into it that he got so confident and not come around for weeks. Even as a little boy, I developed interest in buying and selling, I discovered a place 12km away where I got candies for less the price it was sold in the neighborhood then I would buy and sell to the kids around, this fascinated them and they just waited for my supplies before they bought candies. I have read business articles and publications which has further opened my knowledge in business world.

Upon on graduation in 2012, graduation I proceeded to work as logistics officer in an oil and gas firm, I was charged with a lot challenging task such as overseeing the activities sales distribution men, distribution of petroleum products to strategic and key areas across the country. Managing people can be some sort of a herculean task, I tried to have a personal relationship with them which gave a head start to discovering new markets, I then moved on to be a procurement officer in energy firm, this turned out to be more challenging than I envisaged, it gave me access to offshore activities and several dealings with different nationals from all works of life, I became involved in standards and quality of items supplied by vendors, validating letters of credit for international vendors. At this stage in my career, i believe it’s time for me to expand my knowledge, the Top up program at your institution will expose me to the in business world while developing my business acumen.

The reason why am going for a Top up program is because it will broaden my knowledge well in my choice of program and also give me a good edge in pursuing a Master’s Program in Business at your prestigious institution. The various courses in Top Up program offered will create an enabling environment to further develop my existing knowledge in business thus preparing me for the ever competitive and busy business world; I strongly believe it would give me an edge over my colleagues which would be valuable when come back to the Nigerian market. A final theme in my life, relating to my interest in business top up, is an interest in new markets. My stints at various stages in life has given me niche to excel in business top up program, I am confident that I would excel during my program at University of Bedfordshire, I also did a lot of research on other schools but this fitted into what I wanted . I can assure that when offered an admission, my utmost best will be delivered.




Master of Business Administration MBA


Given the confluence of my personal and professional interests, my goal is to obtain an MBA in Engineering & Management and then to work in an Environmental Engineering industry, either with a consulting firm or as an Environmental engineering analyst with the Government institution.

My desire to study MBA at the University of Bedfordshire is a profound and well facilitated one. There are many factors associated with it. Firstly my experience at the end of the program in modules like Accounting and Finance would help me gain insight on how to maintain and keep records of every fund received and how they have been expended. I would be able to strategically ensure that available fund meant for projects are used effectively and properly accounted base on the stipulated principle.

Leading people and managing operations are another strong areas in this program which I am aware would give me the experience with regards to effectively managing my subordinates or my team in any organisation I find myself. This experience would also ensure my capability to manage any organisational activities and operations.

This particular module would give me the opportunity to develop strategic decisions as a manager on how to manage the operations of the organisation. A good manager needs to be aware on the marketing activities of the firm, and this course would throw more light to me on how businesses can take certain marketing decisions for the benefit of their profitability.

Furthermore, the course would help me improve on my creativity as a strategic manager and would enhance my ideas on how to develop strategic activities that would be applied in my organisation or business to bring about business transformation.

This MBA program would facilitate and enhance my ability to think strategically as well as understand the essentials of business and organisation in order to manage changes in a more efficient way especially in the global environment.

Having an MBA would not only give me more leverage in dictating new job titles and salary, but also would give me leverage in achieving a better balance between work and life outside work. To become a manager or a better existing manager, earn a better salary, develop better managerial skill, to develop better critical thinking skills, to sharpen strategy and tactical skills, to develop appropriate leadership skills, to broaden my scope, to learn and develop strategic thinking, to analyse organizational methods and procedures in their operations, and to take on more responsibilities as well as expand ones network.

My first degree in Chemical engineering at Enugu state University of Science and Technology Nigeria gave me much insight into the engineering field of which during the period I was able to gain basic knowledge and experience of chemical component and engineering technology.

Although my work experience in the banking sector for five years was not really related in the field of practice, it still gave me further insight on areas like finance and management.

However, my pursue for management as a career would boost further my skills in organisational management added with my experience in Environmental management acquired from the University of Bedfordshire. With the acquisition of an MSc in Environmental Management, I believe that embarking on an MBA in Engineering Management would enhance my skill and experience in the area of management which I do need as I intend to run my own consulting firm in the future.

Having acquired to this level of degree, I feel it would be of my advantage and more beneficiary to me in 5 years to establish my consulting firm which I intend to start up after gaining some further working experience in the industry.

I chose to study at the University of Bedfordshire because of the confidence I have in its academic staff. I did benefit a lot during my Msc and I owe gratitude’s to all my lecturers for the knowledge they impacted in me.




Human resource management


The unprecedented explosion of corporations and intense competition within various industries has brought about immense opportunities to utilize newer principles, methodologies, tools and practices in the field of Human Resource to ensure effectiveness of personnel. It is this challenging field in which I would like to gain expertise. Human resource management, as a field, had always fascinated me right from my undergraduate college days. I believe that my penchant for this field stems from the fact that ability to work and manage people runs in my family. My father and brother have HRM degrees. I have always enjoyed and been strong in areas that require problem solving, analytical and interpersonal skills, and I am anxious to combine the knowledge of, and aptitude for, these skills with my interest in human management. I really want to explore HRM while intend to gain specialized knowledge in the field of corporate or managerial HR. WHY UK FOR POSTGRADUATION Imagination is everything. If we can imagine a future we can create it, if we can create the future, others will live in it. This is the essence of success. I was apprehensive thinking of my career prospects in Pakistan but the kind of opportunities, challenges rewards and satisfaction that the studies in UK offers are very reassuring. This inspired me to think and dream about higher studies in your university. I realized that this is just beginning of a bigger dream. This would be not only interesting but also satisfying as it is in line with my career aspirations, more than anything else this inspires me to dream bigger. The studies at UK provides me the rare combination of accelerated growth and the flexibility to get on challenging career paths, be it through continuous learning or larger responsibilities. MY FUTURE AMBITION My husband runs a large business enterprise in the eastern part of Nigeria and the business has gone international as he has been able to attract foreign partnership. Currently the number of personnel working in his organisation require proper management to ensure that they offer the best of their service to the business. As such I have decided that I need to acquire knowledge in the area of human resource management so that I could assist him in managing these employees for effectiveness and productivity. I also hope in the future to establish my consultancy firm where I can train personnel for firms. Applying to University of Bedfordshire is a key choice to me as the University has the qualities of what it takes to produce quality education.




Oil and Gas Management


Being an enterprising Nigerian of this generation, the goals I've made myself to attain are beyond just my academic studies. The little training which was a couple of months in a processing & manufacturing/producing industry has opened my eyes to a new dimension so vast, so appreciative with so much potential only the Nigerian Oil & Gas industry will accommodate such prowess. My country being an economy solely dependent on oil & gas, it requires excellent managing & an insightful scope especially by young, vibrant & wilful youths of my generation.

My name is Mahmood Usman Mahmood, in my late twenties, a committed husband & a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Heriot Watt University UAE campus in Dubai but in line with Nigeria’s curriculum since primary and secondary schools we have been solely taught in English Language and also University attended was taught is English. My keen interest in automobiles led me to study Mechanical Engineering, however, along the line coupled with environmental factors, I realized a quota of my knowledge if acquired will propel my country to a greater height than it presently is or used to be.

Currently I work as an Assistant Analyst with the Assets Management Department at Abuja Investments Company Limited from April 2015 till date, our primary objectives in the department is running facilities management which we happen to carryout daily activities to the best of our abilities.

Nigeria was one time the world's sixth producer of crude oil, the slumping in oil prices, corruption, poor management of the economy, insurgency & looting government officials has poorly & shamefully led us be recognized as a nation of failure even by our standards as a case to admit. Well I believe we can do better, through education, through zealous endeavours & strategic approach to things, we can improve the situation for ourselves, our children & the children of our children's children. I'm but one man, one with a heart for nation building, one with a mind for better living & one with a soulful intention of getting things done appropriately, adequately & accordingly, with a hope that there will be others like me with which together as a team, we can regain our past glory through education rendered by such prestigious institution in an established, accredited & well respected university like this to which I'm writing this.

I'm a lot active in outdoor activities especially sports related events, my passion for fast cars has since been ignited & the much needed regular exercises in & out of the gym are my forte. Also I’m intrigued by technological and anything related to practical experience which makes things more visible and insightful.

My studying in a university of such repute will be a dream come true & after having completed my studies if granted the opportunity will undeniably be an answered prayer.

My commitment to what's most important in life & having good focus is unflinching & the prowess with which a man like me is built upon will only be shown when put to test. With all humility, that which I have stated here & as being carried in any document to be presented is to the best of my knowledge accurate & without glitches.

It will be an honour attaining such a goal as you're being held in the highest regard. With hope of having your consideration, I anticipate a kind & favourable response.

Supply chain management


Supply chain management is the design, planning, execution, control and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally. I find this very interesting. Through my undergraduate days I have always wanted and known that I will study this course, I find it both challenging and also interesting. It is also a course I know I will do very well in because I am a very inquisitive and open minded person, I always want to know more. If asked to give a proper description of myself I will say that I am a very hardworking, active, intelligent, pleasant and very smart woman.

I am confident that my background in mass communication and experience in sales and marketing will prove to be suitable match for my chosen course of study –Global supply chain management. One would ask why global supply chain management? It is a considerable source of competitive advantage in the global marketplace. The fierce competition in today’s market is led by advances in industrial technology, increased globalization of demand and supply sources.

My degree in mass communication has given a strong foundation to my developing good communication skills in dealing and working with people and also strong analytical skills in solving problems in a calm and efficient manner. More than what I have studied in school, it has been the experiences acquired over the years working in different capacity in different organizations that has shaped the person I am today. I believe that this unique blend of experiences has made me a woman who has a strong analytical skill from also dealing with people and solving problems. Working with clients has also taught me to find solutions to problems in a calm and efficient manner.

For 2 years I worked with an oil and gas service company based in Belgium as the key account manager, my job then involved sourcing for clients, maintaining old ones, sourcing for RFQs, getting orders and following up on the order from Belgium until it is delivered to the client here in Nigeria. My job then Involved a lot of planning and logistics. I have also worked for 1year as a business development executive in an oil and gas service company here in Nigeria which my job then entailed a lot of marketing skills and ability to follow up on order and have it delivered to the client. These experiences involved application of the theoretical and practical course work I completed for my first degree in mass communication and also a short course programme in business development from Business school, Netherlands.

Supply Chain Management


Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a diverse, challenging and worthwhile career that I really feel it is the right course for me. It is a vocation for people who are practical, analytical, diligent and who find it easy to quickly establish good and lasting relationships with others. I have these skills and a great enthusiasm for global supply chain. Supply chain management first aroused my interest when I read Martin Christopher’s Logistics and Supply chain management from my father’s shelf while I was an undergraduate. In this book, Martin explained how effective supply chain is the engine that drives growth in modern organisations. He made it clear that “individual businesses no longer compete as stand-alone entities but rather as supply chains”. After reading the book, I began discussing with my dad about the same topic. Our discussions left me with a deep enthusiasm for supply chain management and I decided to focus my career on this space. Since then, I have amassed 4 years’ professional experience in supply chain and procurement planning at Jumia.com, the largest online retail organization in Africa. My work experience at Jumia.com has helped reinforce my interest in the areas of procurement, inventory and operations management. I was able to experience how long term inventory planning can help reduce the risk of out of stocks and improve overall customer experience. My main role at Jumia.com was to manage key supplier relationships and ensure continuous availability of top selling products at the best possible prices. This experience helped me to develop relevant skills in negotiation, relationship management, forecasting, time management among others. In my few years’ experience at Jumia.com, I have achieved a number of feat. One of my proudest achievements was negotiating with Sony PlayStation (Middle East and Africa division) and key distributors in Nigeria to fix the issues with PlayStation distribution in Nigeria and ensuring constant availability of key PlayStation products at competitive pricing on Jumia.com. These took several weeks of negotiation with top players in the gaming industry and constant anticipation of bottlenecks before they arise. Additionally, I was able to achieve an all-time low out of stock (OOS) rate with my portfolio of suppliers. Collectively they achieved 95% on time delivery and an OOS rate as low as 1%. This was considered very excellent as the overall company average OOS rate as at then was over 15%. E-commerce is relatively new in Nigeria and Africa at large. And so is supply chain management. From the afore mentioned OOS rates, it is quite clear that Jumia.com as an organisation, still has a lot of room for growth in the areas of effective and efficient supply chain management. The same also applies to many other organisations in this part of the world. As a young professional, I have a strong craving for knowledge and growth in the space of supply chain management. Also, I will like to tap into the challenging opportunity of becoming one of the key players to drive excellence and overall improvement in this career space in Nigeria and Africa at large. This is why I have chosen to study MSc in Supply Chain Management at the prestigious Coventry University. Furthermore, I am very excited to apply for this course and I believe I have the enthusiasm, the hunger for knowledge and the experience required to perform excellently in studying MSc Supply Chain Management at Coventry University. I want to amass the necessary knowledge and experience required to help improve the flow of materials and information in Nigeria and Africa at large. I hope that my MSc. in Supply Chain Management will be a major step forward in a lifelong career that will really make a difference.




Project management


Over the course of my professional life, I have become increasingly involved in project management roles. Doing so has made me aware of the many varied challenges that can face projects and the project managers who are charged with bringing them through to completion. The success or failure of projects, in whatever economic, political or social field, rests not just on the quality of the project’s goals, but also on the abilities of those involved in the project – and above all those who are managing it to bring it to successful completion. To do this, project managers need to be equipped with a very wide range of skills, many of which are unrelated to the type of project itself. So, for example, a project manager of an engineering project must not only have engineering expertise and experience, but also possess management skills in areas such as budgeting and financial management, operations, personnel and information systems. In many cases, projects fail because they are led by people who lack these skills.

I have very much enjoyed the challenges of working in a project management position in the past, and intend to work in this area in the future. I am committed to developing my professional skills to allow me to work to the fullest of my potential, and as a consequence I am highly motivated to study for an MSc in Project Management. I believe that it is essential for project managers to be equipped with the skills that are necessary to allow ambitious projects to be completed on budget, on time, and according to their original specifications, and I believe that completing this master’s is the best way to acquire those skills.

To help me with my career goal of working in a project management position, I have already taken steps to boost my project management skills through self-study. I regularly read books on the subject of project management, and also like to read about the development of important projects in the news. During the course of working in project management roles in the past I attended short workshops and training courses to help me in my role.

I am excited about the prospect of returning to higher education and completing a master’s to the best of my abilities. Furthermore, in addition to learning as much as possible about project management prior to beginning the course, I have also been working hard to improve my level of English.

I believe that my professional history demonstrates that I have a solid grasp of the demands of project management, and through working in a project management role in the past I have begun to develop many of the skills that are necessary for a project management role.

I have chosen to study at the University of Bedfordshire due to the fact that the institution is very good in this course. I have come across graduates from this institution and they are currently employed. The school’s testimony from these students have been Impressive. The institution is also located very close to London and this takes about 30 minutes. I also saw online its newly constructed Library which runs for 24 hours daily.

The UK has been one place where I have aspired to study based on the fact that UK degrees are respected all over the World. The UK degree gives a graduate that prestige and places such individual ahead of other job seekers.

In spite of past successes in a project management role, however, I refuse to be lulled into a sense of complacency. I am eager to learn as much as possible about project management to excel in this sector in the future. If accepted to the master’s programme, upon its completion I would like to continue to enhance and broaden my professional skillset through working as a project manager for a construction company, a sector in which I am interested in part as a result of my involvement with helping friends and relatives in the construction of their own homes.




Project Management


As a graduate with a B.Eng in Chemical Engineering for over seven (7) years from the prestigious Federal University of Technology Minna, Niger State Nigeria, obtaining an MSc in Project Management from this renowned institution would equip me with better know-how in terms of efficient service delivery, time management for effective project completion, improved project quality among other enormous benefits.

The MSc in Project Management will give me a great standing and competitive edge while executing my tasks as an Officer with the Nigeria Customs Service having served as and still serving as part of a team at the Pre-Arrival and Assessment Report Centre aka PAAR Ruling Centre (PRC), tasked with the responsibility of maintaining the Information technology system, handling Customs automation system in import Clearance, trade facilitation through speedy clearance procedures, risk management and formulation of reliable and timely trade Statistics for effective and accountable planning purposes in line with best practices as adopted through a series of bilateral trade agreements under the World Customs Organization.

I had hoped to further my studies earlier than now but due to my employers policy which stipulates a 3 years post confirmation eligibility criteria for postgraduate studies I have been unable to meet up. However I believe the best was saved for the last. With on the job experience as a 6 months trainee with the Pipeline and Product Marketing Company of Nigeria in 2006 and as a Control Check Officer with Nigerian Air Force Water Treatment Plant in Makurdi, Benue State Nigeria from 2010 to 2011 and currently a team member of the Nigeria Customs Service Pre-Arrival and Assessment Report Centre, I firmly believe that I would not only be on the receiving side of new knowledge but I would be adding value to the class based on prior knowledge.

Finally, I sought to study in the United Kingdom and in particular the University of Bedfordshire based on its track record of academic excellence and its proximity the cosmopolitan city of London. Experiencing the blend of these two remarkable qualities would without a doubt enhance my level of reasoning which will equally translate to recommendations of efficient and sustainable growth and developmental polices that would further improve the living standards of Nigeria.




Business management


Business management is as aspect that cannot be over emphasized. The success of an economy is based on how businesses impacts on it. The business world has seen rapid growth and it is important that it properly managed. In the era where technology is been applied in businesses so as to achieve a positive influence for effectiveness, time management, productivity and information. It is vital to make sure management of business is considered and applied for the success of the business.

I studied mathematics as my first degree and I see this aspect to be relevant in achieving my dream as data is a key factor any successful business today must apply. Having numerical and the ability to analyse data is vital. Also adding to my knowledge in studying business administration, it has also developed my understanding and provides me with a good foundation to things businesses will have to consider to succeed. To be an entrepreneur or a corporate business, external environmental factors must first be studied and analyse as this will help to create a business strategy.

Effective management is an important key that helps is driving enterprise to succeed. I observed this key factor when I worked as a marketing analyst of a financial institution in Nigeria. I learnt from my work experience how business strategy had to change as quickly as possible. My responsibility involved managing a team, this made me see that my activity has to align with the company’s business strategy. This change was to meet the external environment changes and all other department had to adapt quickly with the direction the organisation is taking. Effective business management of decision and procedures was a key in meeting the sporadic change it brings. I have been inspired with the likes of Sir Richard Branson in showing how he effectively manages his various businesses with the success achieved and showing the growth of its business.

I am hard working and have interest in learning and applying what I learn. My interest in business has been with me since I was a child. This is because I learn from people advising how important it is to be an entrepreneur. Growing up and having the mind that one day I will have a business of my own and also apply my skill in any organisation I will work for to add my skill and knowledge to ensure success.

Management Information System


When I was 16, I wrote a computer science exam and surprisingly I found studying and research prior to the exam exhilarating. It was no surprise that I had an outstanding result. At that moment, my interest in computer science peaked. I knew from the onset of my college education, that I would major in this field. I had no doubt in my mind that my passion was computer science.

In 2016, I completed a four year program obtaining a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science at Afe Babalola University Nigeria, achieving a first class degree. During my program, I gained priceless knowledge and an assortment of transferrable strengths and skills.

My Dissertation title was the Design and Implementation of an e-business model for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Although, I was taught the basics of FORTRAN, Visual Basic, C++, and a few other programming languages, I, however decided to use PHP, Java and MySql for the execution of this system. Due to this, I felt a need to undergo a 3 months certification course in Management Information System (MIS) in order to develop a system that is user friendly, well managed and stores data effectively.

However, while developing the system I realized I was unable to thoroughly tackle the security aspect of the system. This carved a path for some of my academic short term goals; to acquire a second degree in Computer Security and have research skills necessary to investigate the continually changing forensics and security in Cloud infrastructures.

I am a highly motivated individual with an ability to adapt to new environments. I am willing to invest time and effort into pursuing my long-term goals. I embrace training, reflective practice and supervision as I see them as necessities for my personal growth to enhance my strengths and skills. I take directions seriously, but apply initiative to complete a task. I accept constructive criticism in the view that it will improve my knowledge.

My aspiration is to have a thorough grounding in professional software development and a broad education in the area of computer and internet security, combining both technical and managerial aspect and the willingness to be prepared for a responsible position in the IT industry.

Undertaking the MSc in Computer Security will enable me to develop the knowledge and skill required to fulfil my long term goal – becoming a reliable IT consultant well vast in systems, having a knowledge on how to critically assess the security risks to IT organizations and also knowing how to evaluate information security to mitigate them, I also desire to obtain a PhD in a sector of the ever growing IT sector.




MBA


I studied Demography & Social Statistics at the Covenant University, Nigeria. Some of my greatest attributes is that I am smart, hardworking, and inquisitive. I am always willing to learn and I appreciate every opportunity to learn new things or old ones differently. I am sensitive and genuinely interested in others, which makes me confident that with these qualities and sound business knowledge, the sky would be the limit for me. My degree from the university as well as the experience I have gathered from my job has provided me with a very strong foundation, good communications skills, as well as organizational communications skills for my future career and this has encouraged me to pursue a master’s degree in business administration. Pursuing this master’s degree is a responsibility I owe to myself. I decided to choose this course because I know that it would be critical for me in achieving my lifetime goal of owning and managing my personal company in the near future.

I am greatly impressed by and admire the entrepreneurs in my country, most of who have obtained this degree to enhance their knowledge and skills and are thriving despite the challenging business environment in Nigeria. The main things that interest me about an MBA programme is the fact that it encompasses all aspects of running a business and is not in any way limiting to the type or nature of the business I choose to grow. My career goal is to work in a decent and professional organisation for at least 5 years, gather enough work experience, hone my leadership and motivational skills and obtain an MBA degree to adequately put me on the right platform to achieve my dreams and aspirations. Ten years from now, I see myself as a business owner and manager in a profitable field or sector, meeting clients’ needs and posting impressive turnover. I believe a master’s degree in Business Administration is key in making the best (and objective) business decisions in managing my company if I am to be successful at it.

My first introduction to Business Management came as a result of an encounter I had with a senior colleague at my current place of work, Mr. XXXXXXXX, who was the Head of Business Process Management of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, but was effectively able to utilise his MBA degree to contributing immensely to the business decisions of the Corporation. My work experience has already helped me develop many of the requisite skills for my career and the degree. I previously worked at an Audit firm and later in a government agency before my current job at a multi-billion naira government Corporation. The experience convinced me that I have the requisite interpersonal and management skills to excel as an entrepreneur, which has made me even more determined to achieve my career goal.

While carrying out my research on various institutions that offer MBA programs, I came to a decision to choose the University of Bedfordshire to acquire an MBA education simply because the school is designed to meet the needs of early career individuals like myself and is also structured to support my aspirations for fast track career progression. I also want to become part of a great network of professionals and companies and to constantly challenge myself with problem-solving.

My application is attached with my CV and all other necessary documents.

I hope I have been able to adequately convince you of my choices and interests to be chosen to go through a master’s degree in business management with your institution.




MBA Health Service Management


As the last of my 4 older siblings I was pretty much the runt of the litter, and no
One took me seriously, which was fine for a while until a point came in my life when I did want to be taken seriously, I decided in my mind one day, that my first step towards becoming my own person that could be taken seriously was to move out of my lower bunk position in a room I shared with my two older sisters to the guest room and the dream was to transform it into my own room, now you must understand with strict African parents like mine, this would normally be impossible, and after sharing my bright idea to move rooms with my sisters and being ignored as usual as this was a venture they had never dared to try, I thought to my self, there is nothing to lose now ,so I went ahead And I promised my self to find a way, I wrote a 3 page letter to my parents explaining to them why it was necessary for me to own my room, at that tender age I also drew up my own version of a contract with them, where I stated I was willing to take on certain house chores and get paid by them and use the payment as rent for the guest room, I signed my part, by dipping my finger in pen ink and stamping it everywhere on the 3pieces of paper I placed under their bedroom door, my father was so impressed by my letter that he decided to let my have the room and till this day, I consider that my first business deal. From then on I quickly realized that the best way to get things to go my way was to make a deal, each party would leave satisfied and I would get what I wanted, this became something of a hobby to me, Over the years in my secondary school education in st peters rc high school Manchester, I was exposed the fact that I had very good entrepreneurship and communication skills, going as far as to win entrepreneur of the year, in one of our career days but my passion for knowledge and helping people on a very deep level, drove me to medical School, And my ability to communicate, be diplomatic and quick thinking helped me thrive, both with patients and other students. As much as I have a very deep desire to be a doctor, I am convinced very deeply that, that Is not all I am meant to do, It is my desire to erect businesses and Be well informed on all it takes to be a successful manager of things, as I have often found my self in such positions in life, and I would very much want to be prepared. This desire drove me to start many business ventures, at some point I soon realized that diplomatic skills and wit where not all it took to adequately manage a business venture, my lack of knowledge of the intricacies of the business sector and management of established business led to the initial failure of a few business ventures I started, eventually with time and experience I got better, and with the help of a partner was able to establish a catering and beauty product service company, which is still afloat till this day. Futuristically I want to be able to manage my self and others as well as be able to erect businesses. During medical school I developed a deep passion for my country, I desire to be able to help less privileged Nigerians both those who need help medically and those who just needs jobs, I hope to help create job opportunities, for them to be able to work, survive and live meaningful lives, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it, all I knew was 2 things: One-­‐ I wasn’t going to let the dream die and Two-­‐ I needed to be more educated on how to appropriately start, manage and handle a business and people. I eventually started looking for universities where I could do my masters in business administration, upon seeing the university of Bedfordshire’s offer of an MBA course in hospital and health services management it was like a light bulb, my Life made sense!
I was amazed at the fact, there was an MBA in hospital management, that was right up my alley, if possible I would love the opportunity, to learn and understand the intricacies of how hospitals are run, as it is Also my dream to erect a lot a of hospitals in the rural areas of Nigeria my country, as well as erect multiple businesses where well meaning Nigerians and non-­‐Nigerians can get employment and fulfillment from.
And this is exactly why I want to do a masters course in business administration, I‘m assured it will equip me well enough to be able to achieve some of my dreams and much more and will make me a generally more efficient person.




Supply Chain Managemen


I studied B.Sc. Political Science at the prestigious University of XXXXXXX, Nigeria, and graduated with a second-class grade. During this programme, i made of my mind to pursue a degree in Management to enhance my understanding of the business world.

I have a passion for working in procurement departments, but without full knowledge on procurement processes, this dream seems unrealizable, especially with the increasing demand for professionals with the ability and skills to facilitate cost-effective procurement in organizations. Therefore, a post-graduate course in Procurement and Supply Chain Management is essential in order to gain novel insight, guidance, and all other necessary skills that will prepare a person in becoming a procurement expert.

My decision to apply to University of Salford is due to the growing popularity of the school, and the availability of flexible start dates for the Business school courses. Furthermore, Salford’s accreditation by the famous Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) is no doubt an important driving force for my choice of the school.

Currently, I have been awarded with full scholarship by the XXXXXXXXXto study MSC Procurement and Supply Chain Management. This sponsorship will cover tuition and up-keep allowances for the complete academic session, which is anticipated to start from September 2017. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further details. Thanks.




MBA


A civil engineer, hard working and purposeful with seven years working experience. In further pursuance of my career, I want to get a master degree in management and business administration in order to add more value to myself, give me an edge in practicing my profession, make me a better manager and contribute ultimately to my career development. Also an opportunity to be considered for admission in this school will give me the chance to meet with people of different nationals and profession, interact with them and build a strong professional network.




Project Management


As a graduate with a B.Eng in Chemical Engineering for over seven (7) years from the prestigious Federal University of Technology Minna, Niger State Nigeria, obtaining an MSc in Project Management from this renowned institution would equip me with better know-how in terms of efficient service delivery, time management for effective project completion, improved project quality among other enormous benefits.

The MSc in Project Management will give me a great standing and competitive edge while executing my tasks as an effective staff in my organisation, having served as and still serving as part of a team at the Pre-Arrival and Assessment Report Centre aka PAAR Ruling Centre (PRC), tasked with the responsibility of maintaining the Information technology system, handling automation system in import Clearance, trade facilitation through speedy clearance procedures, risk management and formulation of reliable and timely trade Statistics for effective and accountable planning purposes in line with best practices as adopted through a series of bilateral trade agreements under the World Customs Organization.

I had hoped to further my studies earlier than now but due to my employers policy which stipulates a 3 years post confirmation eligibility criteria for postgraduate studies I have been unable to meet up. However I believe the best was saved for the last. With on the job experience as a 6 months trainee with the Pipeline and Product Marketing Company of Nigeria in 2006 and as a Control Check Officer with Nigerian Air Force Water Treatment Plant in Makurdi, Benue State Nigeria from 2010 to 2011 and currently a team member of the Nigeria XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I firmly believe that I would not only be on the receiving side of new knowledge but I would be adding value to the class based on prior knowledge.

Finally, I sought to study in the United Kingdom and in particular the University of Bedfordshire based on its track record of academic excellence and its proximity the cosmopolitan city of London. Experiencing the blend of these two remarkable qualities would without a doubt enhance my level of reasoning which will equally translate to recommendations of efficient and sustainable growth and developmental polices that would further improve the living standards of Nigeria.

Attention is focused on data collection techniques appropriate for research in management and business, along with techniques for the analysis of quantitative and qualitative data also Project Management which considers the scope and definition of a project, its significance as an instrument of change and the roles and responsibilities of people within it. Organisational issues are explored and the application of a range of project management tools is critically evaluated for the execution, management and control of project management throughout all its phases. And I believe there are more interesting courses that will intrigue or fascinate me.

The principle reason that motivated me to pursue the MSc Project Management course is the appeal and challenge Project Managers experience in delivering assignments they undertake in their career. The qualification, indeed, lead to very smart and modern careers for graduates who love challenges, creativity, leadership and success. As a graduate of 2.1 in the department of sociology Abia state university uturu, I have cultivated these features in my student life.

I regularly read books on the subject of project management, and also like to read about the development of important projects in the news with this, I am expecting to
attain a high 2.1 or first class degree which I hope will demonstrate my academic ability to study at this level.

I am particularly keen to study at the faculty of Buisness and law and department of project management In the University of De Montfort because of your research interests in Risk management, Business creation and innovation, Global supply chain among others and your reputation of
excellence in these fields. The international reputation of the department

International Business Management


Some says Management is an Art while others argued that it’s a fundamental part of human life. Neither of them is wrong, because as an art, you have to analyse every aspect before making a just decision and because every person in the world applies the principle of management at least once in their lives. But, I believe management is a law that guides human nature as every day to day activities of man is embedded and guided by the principles of management.

My childhood dream was to become a business tycoon. Hence, just before I graduated from college and in quest of deciding which path to follow in achieving my childhood dream of becoming a successful business person. I had a career counselling and discussion with a teacher who happened to be my mentor, and I could recall telling her about my lifelong dream and enquiring about the secret behind the success of great business persons. In her response, I was made to realize that these persons were great because they were able to make clear and well thought out decisions when it matters most. The greatest gift or power man could ever dream of possessing is the power of knowing or predicting what the future holds and I was made to realize that Management give such power. Management gives an insight into the future through its analysis of historical events and processing such into meaningful information that assists in making well informed decisions regarding the future.

Also, the most efficient person in the world isn’t he that doesn’t make mistakes but he who makes mistake and was able to know when he had committed one, trace it, fix it and guide against a repetition of similar mistake. Management helps show the true position of a person, business or even a nation at every point in time as well as the reasons for being in such position and from thence one could take remedial or improved actions as the case may be where and as necessary. The counseling was an eye opener that made me to completely see the importance of Management and its relevance to my dream and the world at large.

Consequently, I developed an interest in Accounting as one of the various subsets of Management and thereby enrolled in a Bachelor of Science in the field of Accounting. Acquiring knowledge of Accounting and Management is not only extremely useful, but also personally rewarding and enjoyable as it’s a fascinating area of study and one that is very crucial to my future career.

My insatiable quest for knowledge is yet to be quenched which makes me desire to further more by undertaking a Masters program in International Business Management in your prestigious institute which has a track record for producing globally competitive and successful business leaders. With the opportunity provided by your institution to work while learning, I have no doubt that your University will help enrich me with great business management knowledge and leadership skills that will give me competitive edge in my future endeavours. As for my future plans, I hope to acquire the expertise i sought in business and someday float and own a business of mine.

Master of Business Administration - MBA


I am writing as a supplement for my application as a student in the MBA with Placement course starting in January 2019 at your prestigious university. My recent achievement was an MSc Program in Corporate Communication and Public Affairs. After completing my bachelor’s degree, supplemented by a year of National Service to my country, I have developed a refined set of personal, academic and professional goals. However, I feel that achieving these goals will be more effectively facilitated with this MBA program. Recently, I have had strong interest in business and I wish to gain insights in starting and running my own business in the near future, but I am unable to take on the desired roles with my current qualifications and training. There are several goals that I hope to achieve upon successfully completing this course.

An MBA program will rectify this by providing me with invaluable tools, knowledge and experience integral to the achievement of my professional aims. I will like to advance my knowledge in the realm of business administration to gain managerial and leadership skills necessary for a profitable business.

Having gained brief work experience as a Junior Marketing Executive and Public Relation Officer including short courses on Human Resource Management and Project Management, my business interest has grown. I have come to the realization that pursing a Business Administration program would be beneficiary in my career pursuit and, the placement is an added advantage which would advance my skills and knowledge.

In search of motivation to my new interest, I have realized that starting and running a business summarily requires astute thinking and practical skills; the exact things needed to feel the worth of any business.

I feel strongly that this degree in your reputable institution would provide me with an unparalleled opportunity to gain hands-on research, technical and other business-based experiences that would undoubtedly serve me throughout my career path.

I am extremely excited about the opportunity to pursue my degree in University of Worcester in particular. Considering your accomplishments of being internationally accredited and offering top-ranked programmes to students. I hope to get skilled training for my personal interests and career goals.

I would greatly appreciate the privilege of this admission and will certainly do my best to the objective of the program.




Digital Marketing


From childhood, I have always loved devices capable of solving problems by processing information’s in discrete forms. Using Nigeria’s present situation as an example, most Nigerians have to go miles before getting things done; Nigerians travel miles away to get goods, walk miles away to local stores and these are issues that endanger human lives, when they can order or make things done on their phones and delivered to their door-step. Studying this course as a post-graduate will increase my knowledge and also help in adding to the solutions on how to make many Nigerians’ live a simpler, better and safe life.

The reasons why I choose Salford University is because the school fees at the University of Salford for international students is structured to allow for discounts. Furthermore, the University has good university facilities which facilitate learning within the school environment, and also, there are different clubs and societies where students are allowed to join which can add to ones’ knowledge and make one more social. In addition, the University has good student support; such as student’s ambassadors, who represent the university and the students.

I had my first degree in English and Education. As we know, English boosts interpersonal relationships and encourages the creation of strategies to develop a more efficient profile, in addition, English is the most used language and it will help in the course because the course requires advanced vocabulary and critical thinking.

I hope to gain knowledge in Digital Marketing as this will help me in sales skills, whereby, I will be able to engage with people and turn them into sales opportunities. I also hope to gain an understanding of word-press, which will help to continually educate myself on new plug-ins and functionality because word-press is always offering something new and useful that speeds up content production. Also, I would like to acquire listening skills: through social media and analytical tools, customers’ thoughts on a product, important issues or own services will be listened to.

Nigeria is a big nation with over two hundred people and there are various businesses obviously on the rise, but one thing isn’t common yet in the nation and that is Digital Marketing; so many businesses are yet to apply digital marketing into their businesses.

Studying this course will help to get a good job and also be an avenue whereby companies which have been stuck with the traditional method of advertising can get customers through the internet. This course will help my career by helping small business owners get connected to the internet also to grow an online presence for their brand and drive growth. Also, the course will help me to take strategic steps that will enhance customer acquisition and conversion in any company.

I have an outstanding communication skill, a good interpersonal skill, I am empathetic, always eager to learn new things and always striving to improve myself in all areas of life. I am extremely hardworking, and I am very committed to reaching my goals in the nearest future. As a future master’s student at the University of Salford I can contribute to your university as I have the skills and the experience to achieve well in this course.




Masters in Business Administration in Hospital and Health Services Management.


After completing my MSc in Public Health at the University of XXXXXXX coupled with my Bachelors in Microbiology at the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, Nigeria, I have decided to enhance my career further in health sector by complementing it with a Masters in Business Administration in Hospital and Health Services Management. The application is supported by the evidence of my qualifications, references and my eligibility to study. This will verify the information contained within this application. Though with my background in health, I feel it is necessary that gaining a business knowledge is vital to my future career because business has always been something I like personally.

I am an extremely industrious student, and believe the more you put in to studying (as with all aspects of life), the more you get out of it. Studying increases knowledge, and confidence. This in turn increases curiosity, leading to further study. Since deciding I would like to complete an MBA in Hospital and Health Services Management to further my career, I have spent a great deal of time researching all of the options open to me.

Since the University of Bedfordshire has been my foundational institution, I have explored my experience and knowledge obtained in the course of my MSc with other Universities and have decided this is where I would like to remain for retain-ability so as to facilitate speed, academic excellence as well as offer me an ample opportunity to interact with people of academic like minds. This decision is due to the Institution’s good reputation in teaching, research and with their business partnerships.

These business partnerships, allows their students to research real life scenarios, and to apply theories to resolve these situations. I believe it is very important to gain a MBA in Hospital and Health Services Management from an institution that is well known within the business sector for their progressive and high standard of teaching and development of students, and the University of Bedfordshire is a good example of this.

To succeed in life, you have to remain focussed on what is important to achieve the goal, and therefore it is important to know what you want and why this will help reach where you need to be. This is a self-reflective process, which is not an easy one, but will identify why you want what you do. Part of this process is choosing and applying where you want to study. I would be very happy if I am giving the opportunity here at the University of Bedfordshire to achieve these dreams.




Business Administration


Growing up as a child, I never had an opportunity of living large but I had a friend whose parent are very rich, his name is Jude, this friend of mine never lack anything money can buy as a child, he comes to school with a pocket money, his father’s driver brings him to school and take him back home after school hours while I trek to school most of the times as my Dad, Public Servant could not afford a private car.

I became friend to Jude the day I answered question correctly in the class and he decided to drop me off after school hour, I can still remember vividly asking him where his parent works and he told me that his Dad is a businessman.

Two weeks later Jude invited me to his parent house, the compound was so serene and captivating, I could not hold myself anymore, I was so eager to meet his Dad to ask him what it takes to become a business man because I was already obsessed about becoming a businessman. Meeting with his Dad was a memorable one, I was fascinated by the stories he told me about businessmen, and how they travel around the world, meeting people, making money and meeting the needs of the people by providing goods and services at the right time and at the right place, thereby giving the people a maximum satisfaction.

One of the striking statement he made which boosted my confidence and made me stay resolute in pursuing this course is the statement that say “A businessman can never be a poor man” this has always been my drive.

I can boldly say that this is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Looking at Nigeria as a business environment where both local and international business expansion are going on, in various states where a lot of business has failed in the past, an astute businessman with a management skills would become relevant when it comes to managing peoples business, helping in revitalizing collapse businesses, partnering with other international businesses to bring in products from a country where it has low cost of production to a country where it has higher cost of production for affordable purposes, alleviating poverty by creating jobs in the labour market and in doing so it contributes greatly in economic growth of the country.

Management is also my area of great interest, having worked as a housekeeping supervisor in a hospitality industry, having joy in organizing, planning and coordinating people to get things done. The exposure and knowledge gained during that period will help in a tremendous way and with the knowledge I have acquired about management in the tertiary institution too, knowing that gaining more knowledge in my career is an added advantage, I can say I am highly motivated to be grounded in business and management, my long term goal will be secured with the acquisition of this qualification as it would positively enhance my career. International business and local business already existing in my country has contributed immensely to the choice of my course.

Some of my great characteristics outside my academic interest includes, swimming, listening to music, driving, willing to learn new things, hardworking, enjoy team work, meeting people, solving puzzle, interested in other peoples welfare, going for excursion, enjoys table tennis ball, I am also a very passionate football fan and regularly watch and debate about it and many more.

Making University of Bedfordshire my choice of school was as a result of their reputation, graduates impact on the society, ranking, and research respectively. I strongly believed that with this degree, I can gain employment in an international and local company where professionalisms are emphasized, leaving my country to another country in order to obtain a different degree is a challenge I am excited about, as well as prepared for, as I remain indefatigable in broadening my horizon.

Finance

Investment Risk and Finance


PERSONAL STATEMENT

I have always been fascinated by numbers right from my childhood days and that shifted my interested to dealing with numbers and using figures with the help of various formulas’ to analyse. As I grew older I realised that mathematics could be used in many areas such as Finance, Economics, accounting and statistics to name a few as well as in the society as a whole. I realised that without any doubt that maths is the only element supporting business.

As a result of my immerse willingness to improve my critical and analytical thinking, I decided to study Mathematics and statistics in my first degree so as gain more insight on the how to these subjects can be used to analyse and predict business and finance. Going to university and studying for a degree program in this area was really exciting and a great experience for me as an individual. I learnt a lot from my tutors and fellow students.

Immediately after my studies, I was keen on obtaining hands-on experience in investment and financial field and therefore in order to put to work all the skills and knowledge I had acquired during my university days I took up a position as an investment adviser and customer relations officer in one of the leading banks in Nigeria. This opportunity opened me up to so many diverse experiences within the financial market in sub Sahara West Africa. I learned, I grew and I contributed my own quota. This revealed that private financing, as a profitable supplement to general financing method, is becoming more and more important to many middle and small enterprises in Nigeria , in particular, for its flexibility and variety in operation. However, the private financing manifests certain amount of risk due to the lack of specific rule, essential intendance and its tendency to cause high interest of loan. In regarding of these difficulties, private financing requires a firm law and policy tie to guarantee its successful operation. This is the main problem that most of private enterprises are currently facing due to the lack of capital.

I am deeply fascinated with the subject of my studies. I enjoy not only the clear logic and advanced mathematics inherent in the investment analyses but also its close link with social practice and interaction, engaged in nowadays financial industry.

Choosing to study Investment and Risk Finance is going to help me acquire more skills and a broader perspective on how business is done on a global scale. The United Kingdom and London in particular is a crossroad of many businesses and business opportunities. I want to learn it from the inside to be able to bring the knowledge I gain back to my homeland. It is essential to acquire a firsthand experience and be able to communicate with best professionals in the area of business and finance. Studying abroad will allow me to become a part of the culture of the country. It will give me opportunities to go on the field trips, visit big companies, listen to lectures of the heads of the multinational corporations and study with the best professors. London apart from begin a great place for networking and making good contacts that can be beneficial for business ideas in the future, is also a diverse multicultural community with different people from different works of life.

I truly believe that getting an education here will enable me to become a better professional in my homeland. It will allow me to share my knowledge with people, see business from a different view and be able to analyze current situation in my country

In conclusion, I hoped the personal statement proved that I am a confident and responsibility student.

Pipeline Engineering


With about four years work experience as a Quality Assurance /Quality Control Inspector undertaking major projects belonging to one of the world’s leading Oil and Gas companies, I want to return to academic study and undertake graduate studies in Pipeline Engineering at Newcastle University, London.

After my High School education, I strongly believed that studying a broad engineering discipline at the undergraduate level with the aspiration of pursuing a career in the oil and gas industry would widen my scope as a future QA/QC Engineer hence I studied Electrical & Electronic Engineering. My undergraduate background has provided me with a non-traditional approach to solving problems and looking beyond common causes and occurrences. While in the university, I also took course modules in Instrumentation and Control Systems which exposed me to the underlining principle and success of the Oil and Gas Industry. The importance of power generation and management cannot be over emphasized for any industrial process.

Quality is foremost in achieving the best results and hence my inclination towards further knowledge and growth in quality assurance and quality control. My previous work experience has been as an Electrical Engineer where I worked with the Delta State government in Nigeria which is one of the highest crude oil producing states in Nigeria. My job scope included but was not limited to inspection of materials used in various electrical and non-electrical projects to ensure that they were all according to the required specification and fit for installation and use. I am currently employed with Homik Engineering Limited, an Oil and Gas Service Company, where I have worked for about three years with the quality department. Inspections of materials used for the fabrication (pipes, beams, flanges etc.) to ensure they are of the required dimensions and specifications, inspection of joints prior to welding and ensuring the fit-ups are according to specification, inspection of welded joints, inspection of welding consumables are among the job responsibilities which I do in ensuring that all specifications are met at all stages of the job. I am an AWS-Certified Welding Inspector, having an ASNT level II in Ultrasonic Testing, Radiographic Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing, Dye Penetrant Testing and Radiographic Film Interpretation and also possess ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Lead Auditor training certificate. I am currently the lead welding inspector assigned in the fabrication of a produced water disposal platform (jacket and piping fabrication). This rapid indoctrination and growth in my desired area of interest is only an indication of the zeal to attain my goals. One of the greatest lessons learnt from my work experience is that every field offers a unique challenge in terms of analysis, uncertainties and development concepts. The petroleum sector is no difference from any other and comes with its unique challenges. In a continuously competitive Oil and Gas industry, every success is a mark to be surpassed and every failure is an event to be prevented, thus every outcome becomes a new subject of research.

The next step is to further my knowledge of thought thus bridging the gap between where I am and where I want to be. This is why I have chosen to pursue a Master’s Degree in Pipeline Engineering. The MSc Program at Newcastle University will be a great opportunity and rewarding experience to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve my long term career aspiration. The department holds the right balance student-professor relationship, research and developmental programs to foster my academic pursuits. I believe that attaining higher technical knowledge is key to achieving my goals as this newly acquired knowledge when combined with my analytical reasoning will improve my decision making skills, a core ingredient to success. As Nigeria is still developing in the oil and gas sector, this degree as a Pipeline Engineer, would greatly enhance my career in design, fabrication, and construction of pipelines and ensure my relevant contributions to the oil and gas sector and overall economy of Nigeria.

I will be grateful if I am offered a place in your esteemed and highly recognized institution.

Thank you for your time.




Oil and Gas Engineering


Early in my childhood, growing up in the southern region of Nigeria was a bit difficult because we lived in the riverine area and had to take long boat trips to get wherever we wanted go, be it school, market, hospital, bank etc. But amidst all these difficulties there was always a sight that caught my eyes and made me curious. One day i asked my mum what that tall fire that was lit up in the sky meant, and she told me that it was an oil rig built on water. It was unbelievable that something could actually be built on water, and from that day onwards i became interested in the oil and gas sector.

When it was time for me to get into the university i had only one thing in mind, oil and gas. I went to my cousin to seek his advice because i knew he worked in one of those companies who lit tall fires out in the sea, and he told me he studied Mechanical Engineering so i decided to follow suit. I took a step further towards actualizing my dream when i got the opportunity to do an internship program with chevron.

In my final year as a mechanical engineering undergraduate, I took an introductory course on production engineering which involved the application of fluid flow dynamics and piping design. This class ignited my interest in pursuing graduate study in the oil and gas industry by showing me how much even conventional oil and gas problems require unconventional solutions. My interest was heightened by my project supervisor, who introduced me to research. My thesis, which involved designing, constructing and testing, strengthened my interest even more. It also taught me the extensive research necessary in graduate school. These experiences were some of the most interesting of my undergraduate career and fuelled my passion for production engineering.

Nigeria is one of the world's major oil and gas producers, and because most of its proven reserves now reside offshore, I decided to pursue a master's degree in subsea engineering at a university in the United Kingdom, where many subsea experts reside. This I believed would help me achieve my goals of making meaningful contributions in the sector. I was privileged to study subjects relevant to the industry, such as (((subsurface technology, offshore engineering, and marine pipelines))). These modules, coupled with seminars from industry-based experts from multinational oil producers and service companies such as chevron, shell, and Exxon Mobil, increased my knowledge of the technical challenges the petroleum industry faces and taught me how rewarding solving complex problems can be. While I found this process extremely gratifying, it left me seeking more specific in-depth analysis needed in some sectors of the industry, particularly well design and drilling. This desire lead to my application for a sub-sea engineering degree from (((xxx))), a proven leader in the oil and gas sector where I am confident I can pursue my research interests.

My goals for the near future are to acquire the much required technical expertise, confidence and competence to pursue a career in the petroleum industry, where there is a dearth of skilled human capital, an abundance of natural resources and a dire need of personnel with the passion and dedication needed to affect change in the industry in Nigeria and the world at large. I have chosen to apply to (((XXX))) school based on the pool of well known, industry-recognized lecturers, well-equipped laboratories and relevant research interests based on industry collaboration. I am also aware of the size and diversity of the students in your graduate school, having in mind that Nigeria being the most populous African nation having about 150 different languages is highly diversified, which combined, provides the right atmosphere to enable proper learning for all involved. Your university is a great choice for people interested in (subsea well design and drilling), and I would be honoured to join the elite few given the opportunity to study in your great citadel of learning.

Following the MSC course I would like to pursue my interest in research in the area of Automation either through doing a PhD or possibly researching with a government department or other public sector body.

Traveling Overseas to do Masters in Instrumentation and Control engineering shouldn’t be the end achievement, but what matters most is how to reconcile and integrate those skills and expertise knowledge strongly into our technology and educational environment so that a productive environment will be laid as a platform for our Nigerian educational career development and Social growth in our Nigerian society. And When am true with my Masters studies I will take it upon as challenges to think to improve the Nigerian career prospects by the special grace of almighty God who gave me this opportunity to do Masters in the UK.




Space Engineering


Space engineering is concerned with how to measure the impact of climatic change, exploration and the design of communication satellites. I want to study this program in the University of Surrey for the following reasons: *It want to be prepared for a cutting-edge career in the space industry and agencies in my country. *I want to be trained on new technologies are used in satellite,space missions and explorations. *Furthermore, I want to be trained in areas such as space dynamics, space systems designs, RF systems, satellite communication techniques, satellite remote sensing, and spacecraft structures. In the University of Surrey, I will be given the chance of getting involved in challenging satellite projects, working with a team of professionals in the space industry. Also, I will benefit from the worldwide leading expertise of the University’s team in the area of micro-satellites. Furthermore, my MSc project will give the opportunity to broaden my horizon in of space engineering. Finally, am choosing to study this program in the University of Surrey and the UK because of your world-class record and reputation in the field of engineering and the quality of education.




Environmental Engineering


Aside poverty and corruption, environmental degradation is a major challenge faced in Nigeria. Due to over population and inadequate planning, our environment suffers greatly from pollution and deforestation which if not properly managed would lead to an environmental crisis in the near future. Here lies my interest in the study of my course of choice “Environmental Engineering”. It is however pertinent to acquire the needed skills and knowledge required in overcoming these growing environmental problems. This would empower me to make significant and positive contributions to solving these environmental issues and others that may arise.

My passion for studies relating to the environment is driven by my desire for change and it began during my undergraduate days after reports of the lead poisoning epidemic that occurred in Zamfara state in 2010. My dissertation was carried out on the adsorption behaviors of some waste materials to Lead (Pb2+) and Manganese ion (Mn2+) in aqueous solution. The result was impressive as are other findings in that regard. The problem always is implementation and application of the research findings. The non implementation of environmental laws and application of various research findings that would aid the control of pollution in our environment particularly in water systems, I hope to tackle as an environmental engineer.

As an undergraduate I had the privilege of gaining a very high level of theoretical knowledge in my course of study but I wish to consolidate it with extensive practical skills. I am currently an employee in the Quality Control Department of a Detergent and Soap Manufacturing Company where environmental pollution happens to be a problem. My posting to the waste treatment section of the company further exposed me to the need for improved ways of waste management and pollution control. Thus, nothing will gladden my heart more than the opportunity to; further build my capacity and gain skills in the workings of instruments/machines used in pollution analysis and to apply the knowledge I have acquired of them. As well as carryout researches in areas of interest that have prospects of providing answers to the environmental challenges encountered in my country and not just carry out a research based on the instrument of analysis at my disposal.

Fortunately, I have been awarded a scholarship by the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) and the Embassy of France in Nigeria to undergo postgraduate studies overseas in the field of environmental engineering. This will expose me to advance experiences and knowledge relating to pollution control and waste management which is key to a healthy environment. Also on my agenda, of studying overseas is to be equipped with skills in the modern methods of environmental analysis and instrumentation. Besides, this opportunity and experience will further prepare me for the challenges women face in the work force in Nigeria. Most women are not encouraged to study science related courses, even when they do they are still not considered for certain job openings. I believe that an M.Sc from your prestigious institution will better my odds and avail me the opportunity to make positive impact in areas that matter.

Furthermore, most postgraduate studies ran locally exceeds the specified time required for completion. Masters (M.Sc) studies as I understand run for a two years period in France but it runs for close to three years in most Nigerian universities. This unwarranted delay and the poorly equipped laboratories in our universities make further studies especially in the sciences unattractive and tedious. Meaningful researches cannot be undertaken in the absence of machines and instruments of analysis. Instances where these very important machines are available, the epileptic power supply experienced limit their usage. Often times, machines that rely on constant/uninterrupted power supply to function start to deteriorate even without being used. This and other reasons I mentioned earlier are part of why I desire to study in France. I sincerely hope that I would be considered for admission in your most reputable institution.




Renewable Energy Engineering


I have always had the desire to be an engineer right from when I was young. I always thought it was just a desire for the Petroleum Engineering and this informed my first choice of undergraduate study - Chemical Engineering.

My undergraduate study was for me an opportunity of further self-discovery and discovery of opportunities that were available to an engineering student. During this journey, I discovered my inmost desire wasn’t just about wanting to be a Petroleum Engineer but about wanting to use engineering skills to solve the problems of man. This study further exposed me to current engineering options, technology, current trends, and future trends in the Petroleum Industry and Power sector. This exposure further broadened my purview on my career path.

Upon graduation and awaiting my one (1) year compulsory service, I was opportuned to be mentored by an Engineer from whom I understood issues plaguing our power sector and also saw the need for increasing the Nigerian Energy mix by tapping into its abundant and available renewable energy sources. For me this was an “eureka” moment, finally knowing what path to take and help meet one of Nigeria’s biggest problems-insufficient and inconsistent power.

Nigeria is greatly endowed with solar power resources and has great potential for biofuels as well and I believe its timely that manpower capacity development in form of training is pivotal to interpreting renewable energy potential to economic profits.

The world we live in is an ever changing world with increasing demand for energy and efficiency in energy systems. The challenges of developing alternative energy sources in conjunction with devising novel applications to meet demanding needs, keeps a renewable energy engineer at the cutting edge of technology. The renewable engineer due to his robust training makes his contribution a key determinant of the energy future and I want to be part of that future.

Its my desire to pursue a post-graduate study in renewable engineering because I believe that I will be better equipped as an engineer to make my contribution to shaping the future of energy in Nigeria and the world.




Gas engineering


Growing up in one of the world largest oil producing countries, I have decided to dedicate my life's work towards the development of oil and gas exploration processes.

My interest in oil and Gas engineering is to have a detail understanding of hydrocarbon production operations, drilling engineering, material balance and recovery mechanisms, reservoir properties, petroleum economics as well as concept related to asset and project assessment and valuation .

I therefore, intends to apply for the master of science degree in oil and gas engineering in Department of engineering, Coventry university United Kingdom, due to the high quality of facilities, excellent and sound research output available and notable academic excellence.

I choose to further study and research on oil and gas engineering, considering oil and gas engineering as an essential feature associated with modern nations.

Moreover, I will like to exercise best endeavors to undertake apply researches that are of great benefits and capable of solving the challenges in Nigerian oil and gas sector and other parts of the world.




Renewable Energy Engineering


My decision to pursue this course of study is influenced by two major factors. Firstly Nigeria needs to get her energy industry functioning effectively and sufficiently. The advent of privatization followed by the patriotism boosting change that she recently experienced (the election of a new visionary president) have turned the tide and call for competent, diligent minds to help get her energy sector where it needs to be. Secondly since my time in secondary school I have had a keen interest in energy - its applications in daily life and its impact on the environment.

This course is a chance for me to acquire a qualification (and corresponding knowledge) which would put me in good stead to contribute with great impact to the growing private energy sector of Nigeria be it when speaking about energy policy as a whole or when focusing on various technical and economic issues in the energy industry. I have always relished a good challenge. And that is what the Nigerian electricity sector is at this time

It is true that energy is the backbone of any economy. Having spent the last three years, four months in the Nigerian electricity sector this fact resonates with me even more. It is important that energy be cultivated in the most sustainable manner possible and supplied in a manner most convenient and cost effective to its customers.

This is a pivotal time in the electricity sector both in Nigeria – privatization, and globally - reduction in demand for crude oil as well as the great advancement in renewable energy development and the advent of more technically and cost effective electricity storage solutions. The electricity sector has never faced the competition it faces now - from solar panels, to more efficient fuel generators to more efficient and cost effective electricity storage systems. It is important that the industry is properly consolidated with strong policies and technical knowhow that will result in global best practices.

It is my belief that Nigeria needs to look toward generating enough energy to supply the countries she has an agreement with, supply her citizens with however much energy needed, at whatever quality, and the export of power to neighbouring countries on a purely economic basis. She is strong enough and has enough resources for energy supply in any form (fossil, electrical) or type (renewable, non-renewable) to be one of her core business/ economic streams.

I would like to note that despite my degree classification I am very much capable and well equipped to complete the course successfully as is buttressed by my transcript (the first two years) and the fact that I have been awarded the prestigious Scholarship Award by my country. The result in no way reflects my actual capabilities. It is due to mitigating circumstances at the time (my father became ill and I myself became clinically depressed because of the stress his illness put on my whole family).

Coventry University is world class institution, this makes the institution a great choice. In addition to this fact I choose Loughborough because I have always looked up to the university and the subject area I am interested in studying is offered in a well-designed course.




Renewable Energy Engineering


Viewing Africa's most populous country and largest economy - Nigeria from the air at night is to see darkness everywhere. Only India has more people without electricity than Nigeria. Nigeria has an unenviable position as the world's largest importer of diesel and Petrol generators, and we are spending a lot of money. There is no village in Nigeria where there is no household without a diesel or petrol generator. There are also kerosene lanterns and oil wicks to light. So, we are already polluting the atmosphere just to generate electricity or light our homes in Nigeria. Yet many Nigerians still live in the dark. And yet we have abundant Wind around us - Wind Energy, abundant Sun - Solar Energy. We have so much heat beneath our feet, hot springs and all - Geothermal Energy. These are the reasons that influence my aspiration to choosing an MSc course on Renewable Energy Engineering.

I am a graduate Chemical Engineering with a Second Class Upper and therefore have a unique grounding in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. I am always enthusiastic to learning new things and hard-working too. And by virtue of these diverse trainings and qualities, I am particularly suited to the task of discovering and exploiting the many opportunities available in this array of alternative energy sources. My relentless efforts has won me the Best Staff of the Year at my working place. I also contributed immensely to winning for my Centre Best Centre of the Year for two consecutive Years. I also won the Best Paper Presenter of the Year on the topic "Electricity through Renewable Energy Sources as the Best Alternative to that from Fossil fuel".

However, while I still have a keen interest in the generation of electricity through renewable energy sources, I still feel I need a broader knowledge of principles and technologies use for the generation, storage and transmission of energy from sustainable energy sources. I also need a specialized knowledge to design and optimize the related components of renewable energy systems. Hence my decision to apply to this University. It is therefore my ultimate goal, that at the end of this course, I would be able to contribute my own quota to ever-growing energy demand of my dear country - Nigeria through clean green energy resources.

I am very aware of the excellent reputation of your University and my conversation with several of your alumni coupled with the detailed modules of this course have served to deepen my interest in attending your University. I know in addition to your excellent faculty, and your teaching facilities, your instructors are among the best in the country. I hope you will give me the privilege of continuing my studies on MSc Sustainable Energy Systems in your fine institution.

Engineering Project Management


As a child, it excited me when rain falls, because after the rain the soil would get wet which was perfect for molding different kind of shapes and even houses. Unfortunately for me, cold weather was unhealthy for children to play outside and therefore, I was prevented from doing so. It turned out that my parents knew better, one faithful evening, they bought me a Lego. My first impression was, these are blocks and I’m going to build houses with them. That was when I developed a passion for construction. My passion for building structures got to another level as my father started calling me “My Engineer’. I loved the game so much that I had spent my entire holiday playing with it with friends and relatives. When I wasn't playing with the game, I was spending my time developing plans for different structures, always wanting to replicate what I saw on the TV. When I was seeking admission into the university it became pretty obvious that it wouldn't have been possible for me to study anything other than Civil Engineering. It was quite difficult at first, because at the university level we covered the entire discipline and not just construction. But later on I developed even better interest as I came to realize that what civil engineers do is not only essential but fun and interesting. They build roads, bridges, dam and treatment plants which are some of the basic infrastructures to humanity. I was able to focus on both academic level and extracurricular activities. Some courses such as Strength of Materials, Structural analysis & Construction Management and Planning have had a great impact on my interest and my ideas concerning Engineering. My extracurricular activities involves passion on how locally mold houses in the rural community (home town) are compared to the modern blocks or steel structured houses in terms of effective cost of construction, and efficient maintenance. I truly learned some valuable lessons. After my graduation from the University, I’ve witnessed so many fatal cases of building collapses that caused life and left many wounded, which has been disturbing. It basically showed lack of proper management as well as supervision or unregistered engineering professionals involved in the construction industry. Nigerian economy is growing rapidly, some of our cities like Lagos and Abuja are one of the fastest growing cities in Africa. In order to compete with cities in the world such as Dubai, London and Tokyo in infrastructure, we need indigenous structural expertise in the field, strong organizational bodies as well as business and management oriented professionals. Studying Engineering Project Management will help me contribute to this sector and in the development of my country through involvement in planning and execution complex projects. I strongly believe that studying MSc in your prestigious University can help me gain a better understanding of the engineering industry and the world as whole because of the diversity of the community. With a high ranking on student satisfaction, it would also be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it will allow me to get a glimpse of a different culture. I believe my skills can be improved by studying abroad. This can offer me a comprehensive perspective on Civil Engineering & Management. Now, that my main goal to become a professional civil engineer and work with other engineers in projects that will benefit our ways of living has been fulfilled, I decided to look for ways to make me even better in this field that will distinguish me from other civil engineers. More so, I want to be a motivation for other Africans who are interested in careers but happen to find themselves in an environment where we are far behind in these field.




Oil and Gas Engineer


Growing up as a young lady, I always wished to be an engineer because I found that people looked down on women in the Oil and Gas sector especially the country I hail from (Nigeria), so I wanted to make a difference and made a decision to make good grades and graduate as a Oil and Gas Engineer. Engineering is a very wide and interesting course when you have a particular field you want to major in. I come from an island in Nigeria rich in oil and gas. I have decided to join the Oil and Gas Management faculty as I have a higher opportunity to be employed after graduation in Nigeria.

It is a very tough field that requires a lot of practice and hard work to get to perfection and I am ready for these challenges to achieve my goals. I am adaptable and willing to learn to ensure that I become the best student in my department I pride myself in achieving my goals and ensure that my primary assignments are achieved. I have the tenacity and strong will to succeed. my teachers always referred to me as visionary and decisive, I have no doubts that my academic reference will embrace these facts.

We are in the age where engineering is in the forefront of researching and development of Co2 emission in the technological aspect of the world.

I will be delighted to be offered a place of study in Oil and Gas Management to broaden my mind on how the Oil and Gas sector relates to the world we live in. I appreciate that there is an intense competition in the field of engineering in the United Kingdom.

In addition, the most important fact about education is being happy in the environment you find yourself. I am happy here and I am ready to take this step further into my future. in other words, I am ready to pursue a career in Oil and Gas Management to accomplish my goals and to be an expert in the field. I would do whatever it takes to graduate with a Masters degree in Oil and Gas Management and I am aware of what I am up against and fully prepared to achieve my goal.




Structural Engineering


I studied Building Technology in my undergraduate program, with emphases in Construction management, Building Structures, Building Services, Construction Technology and Building Maintenance. I have completed my program. I am yet to graduate as my graduation ceremony is scheduled for November, 2017, with a Bachelor of Technology degree in Building Technology, with honors from both the College of Environmental Sciences and the College of Engineering. I am the very best in my class. During my undergraduate career, I have gained knowledge and experience in the classroom, in the studio, and applicable real-life practices. I am applying for a place on the General Structural Engineering course at your University because I am very interested in the topics covered by your graduate program in this field. My interest in this area is as a result of the impending and foreseen construction developments which will arise in my country as a developing nation. I would love to further my studies so I can be a global contributor and solution generator in the construction industry. Construction is the intersection of interesting, exciting, intellectually and practically challenging and satisfying fields of human endeavours which include Art, Science and Technology. I have worked diligently these past five years to increase my understanding and mastery of the fields of Building Structures, Construction management, Building Services and Construction Technology and I have greatly enjoyed the process. My specific interests include Structural Analysis, Design and Construction and innovative approach to problem solving as it relates to the built environment. My work placement at China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) during the summer of 2015 reinforced my interest in areas like railway construction, multi-storey design and construction where I experienced steel construction in a working environment. My role was to prepare salary schedules and monitor site labour pertaining to execution of the project. This was further aroused by my work placement at the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) in the summer of 2016 where my main role was to check contractor’s structural designs for proposed Vehicle Inspection Administrative office, produce as-built drawings and also to monitor site labour and general execution of the work. I earned a distinction in my final year research project which was on the implementation of e-commerce technologies in construction material procurement processes which I developed a flowchart model to drive the use of e-commerce technologies in construction material procurement in my Lagos state under the supervision of Mr. Sotunbo Adegboyega. This experience helped me to develop relevant skills in constructing questionnaires, site supervision, time management, team spirit and coordination and good report writing. Your course not only covers the above topics but will also introduce me to new areas of structural design for roads, bridges and other structures further enhancing my skillset and knowledge bank to solve problems which would arise in structural engineering and construction in general. It will expose me to modern design methods, Technology and construction materials. I am keen to study at your institution because of your research facilities and the international reputation of your institution. This I believe will make up a stimulating environment for master’s level study. Your university also provides excellent recreation facilities for its students which demonstrate your commitment to the graduate student body.




Electrical/Electronic Engineering


I have always had keen interest to broaden my horizon in engineering hence, my quest to purse a second master’s degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering. There has been a recent growth in the demand for women in Engineering and I consider it an open window for flexibility. Having bagged a master’s degree in Engineering Business Management, I have been provided with a broad education in management and business which has enabled me function beautifully in my place of work as I have been able to implement my knowledge by improving the company’s internal and external operations.

Having conducted thorough research, I found out that university of Coventry will provide me, the platform to achieve my dreams. This is because the university is dedicated to providing its students with the feasible experience and their teaching is industry-relevant with the aid of a broad range of materials and support.

An Electrical/ Electronic Engineering degree would be an added advantage for me as it would increase not only my graduate prospects but also my flexibility in the engineering field. The course is concerned with the invention and improvement of systems. It can also be described as the forefront of developing technologies. I stand a higher chance at employability and this can be considered a real incentive.

Therefore, I have decided to spread my tentacles in the engineering field by pursing a second degree whilst I target global opportunities. I clearly live in a developing continent which requires as much investment in science and technology as possible especially in terms of growth and development. I therefore look forward to coming back to my home country and contributing immensely to its engineering society. Thus, this degree will help me develop my skills and make me one of the most sought after in the field.

Therefore, in order to succeed in my career, it is important that I become versatile by acquiring as much knowledge, training and experience in my field as possible.




Chemical Engineering


I wish to be considered for a place in the aforementioned program. I am a Ghanaian student with a very high motivation to be a global figure in the field of Chemical Engineering. I am a versatile and adaptable individual who has had a great impact at past jobs and actively played lead roles as a Student Representative.

Past training and job experiences have allowed me to take on and complete research projects of high importance and increasing difficulty while on time and under budget. As a Customer Service Representative at Teletech Ghana, I was very proactive and effectively executed my role. At Marine Fisheries Research Department, I was national service personnel whose role was to microscopically analyze fish samples to determine the quality grade of each specimen. My role as Assistant Biomedical Scientist at the Kwahu Government Hospital was not any different. I was responsible for taking blood samples and keeping records of Haematology tests.

I believe my previous research experience has provided me with the grounding needed to be successful in completing this MSc program. My qualities such as attention to detail, ability to work under minimal supervision, my interest in the field of Biotechnology and above all determination to succeed will be my firm foundation to complete this MSc Biochemical Engineering program with distinction.

Renewable Energy Engineering


Viewing Africa's most populous country and largest economy - Nigeria from the air at night is to see darkness everywhere. Only India has more people without electricity than Nigeria. Nigeria has an unenviable position as the world's largest importer of diesel and Petrol generators, and we are spending a lot of money. There is no village in Nigeria where there is no household without a diesel or petrol generator. There are also kerosene lanterns and oil wicks to light. So, we are already polluting the atmosphere just to generate electricity or light our homes in Nigeria. Yet many Nigerians still live in the dark. And yet we have abundant Wind around us - Wind Energy, abundant Sun - Solar Energy. We have so much heat beneath our feet, hot springs and all - Geothermal Energy. These are the reasons that influence my aspiration to choosing an MSc course on Renewable Energy Engineering.

I am a graduate Chemical Engineering with a Second Class Upper and therefore have a unique grounding in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. I am always enthusiastic to learning new things and hard-working too. And by virtue of these diverse trainings and qualities, I am particularly suited to the task of discovering and exploiting the many opportunities available in this array of alternative energy sources. My relentless efforts has won me the Best Staff of the Year at my working place. I also contributed immensely to winning for my Centre Best Centre of the Year for two consecutive Years. I also won the Best Paper Presenter of the Year on the topic "Electricity through Renewable Energy Sources as the Best Alternative to that from Fossil fuel".

However, while I still have a keen interest in the generation of electricity through renewable energy sources, I still feel I need a broader knowledge of principles and technologies use for the generation, storage and transmission of energy from sustainable energy sources. I also need a specialized knowledge to design and optimize the related components of renewable energy systems. Hence my decision to apply to this University. It is therefore my ultimate goal, that at the end of this course, I would be able to contribute my own quota to ever-growing energy demand of my dear country - Nigeria through clean green energy resources.

I am very aware of the excellent reputation of your University and my conversation with several of your alumni coupled with the detailed modules of this course have served to deepen my interest in attending your University. I know in addition to your excellent faculty, and your teaching facilities, your instructors are among the best in the country. I hope you will give me the privilege of continuing my studies on MSc Sustainable Energy Systems in your fine institution.




Energy systems Engineering


My desire to go into Energy systems Engineering (ESE) is born out of the need to contribute to ameliorating the energy needs of my country and continent in general. Nigeria and Africa by extension has all it takes to move economically, socially, health-wise and in fact in all areas of Life to competing favourably with the first world nations, but all these dreams and desire appear mirageous because of insufficient and sustainable source of energy.

Since the dawn of the industrial age, the ability to harness and use different forms of energy has transformed living condition for billions of people, enabling them to enjoy a level of comfort and mobility that is unprecedented in human history and freed them to perform increasingly productive tasks. For most of the last 200 years, the steady growth in energy consumption has been closely tied to rising levels of prosperity and economic opportunity in much of the World. However, humanity now finds itself confronting an anormous energy challenge. This challenge has at least two critical dimensions. It has becomes clear that current patterns of energy use are environmentally unsustainable.

The overwhelming reliance on fossils fuels in particular threatens to alter the Earth’s climate to an extent that could have grave consequences for the integrity of both natural systems and vital human systems. At the same time, access to energy continues to divide the “haves” from the “have-nots”. Globally, a large fraction of the world’s population more than two billion people by some estimates (Africa to be precise) – still lacks access to one or several types of basic energy services, including electricity, clean cooking fuel and adequate means of transportation.

Of course, the need for a profound transformation of the world’s energy producing and using infrastructure has need widely recognized in the mounting concern about global climate change. In African nations where a significant portion of the population still lacks access to basic energy services, the worry about long term environmental sustainability is often overshadowed by more immediate concerns about energy access and affordability.





Health & Science

Chemistry


Chemistry has proven to be the bedrock of whole of man’s existence- a study of matter in relation to its composition, uses, properties, changes it undergoes and the principles governing those changes. From the food we eat, the cloth we put on, the air we breathe to the entire environmental factor that surround and support our existence, chemistry cannot be overlooked as a means to understand the whole existence of man.

I developed great interest in chemistry while in secondary school due to the influence of my chemistry teacher on me- He is such a seasoned teacher who makes chemistry lesson period a class to look forward to. Due to my interest in chemistry and his efforts, I emerged the overall best student in chemistry in my set. This passion I have for chemistry propelled me to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in chemistry at the university.

The years spent pursuing my undergraduate studies were the most pivotal period of my life and significantly shaped my career path. The rigorous curriculum at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology exposed me to a wide range of subjects, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, environmental chemistry, physical chemistry and industrial chemistry. I also learned to apply theoretical concepts to practical problems and develop concrete solutions.

I developed a continuously improving skill for analytical/ laboratory work as well as ability to learn fast and improve in the proper use of new techniques and equipment of chemical laboratory through series of experiment in the school laboratory as well as the research experience I had during my undergraduate industrial student placement year.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Pure and Applied Chemistry as well as professional certificates in Health and Safety At Work, Risk Assessment Practical Application and Environmental Awareness from the British International Safety Organization.

My strong passion for chemistry propels me to study further to establish myself as a seasoned chemist. I have a special interest in the environmental and analytical aspect of chemistry in a bid to contribute my quota towards environmental remediation to create a better environment.

My ambition is to pursue a higher degree after this program and obtain a doctorate degree in chemistry and be a qualified lecturer of environmental/analytical chemistry as well as a research oriented person teaming up with other team of trained scientists in a bid to create a better environment.

I look forward to being admitted to pursue my master’s degree in your school.




Public Health


I want to pursue the Master of Public Health Program in order to research and implement intervention policies aimed at providing the population with direct access to health care services. Also, I inspire to infuse health care concepts in young men and women by integrating health awareness in educational programs Furthermore, I believe that my studies in public health at this prestigious university will enlighten my perception of current health issues and more, provide me with the skills necessary to avert preventable health concerns.

I am more than sure that the friendly and supportive atmosphere at the university of Bedfordshire, a school long renowned for its commitment to excellence in all that it does, will enable me to exhaust and develop my capacities to the full, thus allowing me to become a successful well-rounded person, able of playing an active role in my community. Indeed, the MPH program will be demanding, but I am willing to give it my very best, for I have the solid dedication, maturity, and desire to become a public health practitioner.

I opted to study in the UK because I believe it is an opportunity to get exposed to the real world of handling public health issues in the western part of the world. Furthermore, it would enhance my CV and profile when seeking for employment with the Ministry of health.

The University of Bedfordshire has been my chosen choice because I have friends who graduated from the University and they are all doing well. Also the University of Bedfordshire is known to have students from various ethnic diversity which would be an opportunity for me to learn various cultures. The University of Bedfordshire amongst all other Universities in the UK is well known to teach the course effectively as its been recommended by students whom have graduated from the institution.

Throughout this program, I was able to gain valuable experience of working with the health care centre of the local council. While this was very challenging I also found it an extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience. To further my knowledge and passion for working with people I took a health and care advanced voluntary tutorial in a conference organised by an NGO in Nigeria and took a week experience in a day centre that involves working with people who suffer from difficulties in communicating and having disabilities. This again helped to broaden my understanding of working with people and also how to deal with children and adults with disabilities.
Within my spare time I have researched the job role and requirements for public health promotion to
find out what is involved. To build upon these interests further, I was able take up a one week
work experience within the health field. I spent the first week in a care home
focusing on helping elderly people that suffer from dementia and my second week assisting a
health promoter to experience a more professional job role in health care.

At the end of this course I believe I would be able to contribute the health sector in Nigeria by working hand in hand with the Ministry of Health especially in the rural areas to support in creating intensive awareness on public health. Being a health practitioner, my future aim is to work with the Nigerian Ministry of health. However, I intend to become a consultant in public health issue in the next five years.

The main reason why I chose to study in the UK because it is well known for its high level of education. In Nigerian every organisation recognises the UK to be the best place to get a good degree and that one of my major reason for opting to study tin the UK. I also chose the University of |Bedfordshire due to its vast nature in admitting students from different culture and ethnic group. I have also been informed that the employability of the University graduates is high and this I know would give me a better chance.




Psychology


Prior to my knowledge of psychology, I had always wanted to be a medical doctor. I always dreamt of helping people overcome their medical challenges. I was very engrossed with medicine as a kid but as I grew older I discovered that I mustn’t be a medical doctor to solve problem. I learnt about psychology from a counselor in secondary school. I picked up interest and it burns through my undergraduate program.

I was so interested in psychology that after my class had a two-week clinical exposure in a remedial school, I had to go back to stay with the school for another six months, where I felt complete tasked at the lives of autistic children, understanding their life was a puzzle. I had to undergo personal research on autism which exposed me to the works of L. Juane Heflin and Donna Fiorino Alaimo.

I am interested in studying child and adolescent mental health, particularly issues of substance use, risk and resilience, pathology and aggression, and how social and family contexts affect each of these issues. I am particularly interested in ways we can make growing up less difficult and ways we can help children that I have worked with live a more promising and fulfilling lives.

I decided to apply to the University for several reasons. Particularly the strong preventive focus of the Child Clinical area of emphasis is the one that meshes well with what I am looking for. The Psychology program at the University has everything I am looking for in a program just as I feel I have what the University is looking for in an incoming student. I would be very excited to join the incoming class at the University for 2017.




Public Health


I would like to do my Masters Program in Public Health in University of Bedfordshire. I did my Secondary school education in Nigeria, where there are a lot of unresolved public health issues.hence increasing my keen interest in public health resolutions. As a result, I went ahead to acquire my medical degree in Ukraine, because I didn’t want to be apart of the constant strike that baffles the educational system in Nigeria and I graduated on the 24th june 2016 as a Medical Doctor.

My interest in Public Health is high and that’s why I would like to further my education with a masters degree leading to my search of a reputable University in United Kingdom to give me a broad knowledge. I choose United Kingdom because of its high ranking, moral and standard in Health and Education.

I want to pursue my masters in Public Health Program with a concentration in Health Behaviour and Educationin order to research and implement intervention policies aimed at providing the population with direct access to health care services. Also, I inspire to infuse health care concepts in young men and women by integrating health awareness in educational program and conducting campaigns that would elevate a sense of responsibility for a better well being.

Furthermore, I believe that my studies in public health at Bedfordshire, a school renown for its commitment to excellence in all that it does, will enable me to exhaust and develop my capacities to the full, thus allowing me to become a successful well rounded individual, to enable me play an active role in my community.

Finally, I know the MPH program will be demanding, but I am ready to give it my best, for I’m very dedicated and hard working to become a public health practitioner. Thank You…….




Public Health


I am applying to study public health at a post-graduate level at University of Bedfordshire because it will assist me in developing my knowledge and skills on the subject. I just concluded my BSc Nursing at the University of Worcester where I achieved a First Class degree. I have gained a good understanding of health related topics and this has prompted me to go further and broaden my knowledge. I believe I can achieve this by gaining advanced knowledge in public health.

Public health interests me because it provides a platform for me to progress in my career and develop public health skills including safety and preventive skills. I was opportune to be one of the staff recruited in my clinic in Nigeria to fight the spread of Ebola. This further developed my interest in public health issues which will help me grow in my profession as not only will I have nursing skills but also public health skills. I will also be able to make key contributions in any organisation I find myself. I also believe I will be able to understand as well as address various health challenges faced by the public daily. This is important to me because I come from one of the developing countries in Africa where public health issues are one of the big challenges faced by the people.

I believe I am suitable for this course as I have a solid health background. I am a registered nurse in my country and I just successfully concluded my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing at the University of Worcester. As a result, I possess the skills and experience that will assist me to succeed in this course. Therefore, gaining this admission will be of great benefit to both me and the public.




Chemistry


I am looking forward to begin a career in instrumental analysis. I’m a hardworking, meticulous, enthusiastic and reliable individual who, throughout my university life and work experience, has a proven track record for working effectively as a team and as an individual. I am looking forward to securing a place on a challenging master’s programme in the field aforementioned above.

As a result of my hard work in my department, such as maintaining an active working relationship with both peers and members of academic staff, Sokoto state University repaid me by promoting me from a Graduate Assistant to an Assistant lecturer. Graduate assistant is an integral part of ensuring good student-staff relations, I provides support to undergraduate students and professors in my department and fulfilling this role requires diplomacy and also the motivation to keep up to date with current issues within the working environment. I believe these are invaluable skills, only successfully obtained through hard work and experience.

Analysis is the backbone of chemistry and science in general. It plays a key role in virtually all areas, including; textile, food, petrochemical, pharmaceutical industries among others. Analytical techniques I possess experience with are; HPLC, TLC, column chromatography, polarography, ISE, mass spectrometry, UV- Vis spectroscopy, and Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).

University of Central Lancashire is a place to be where my passion for science will be understood and nurtured. I know I’m going to be guided by some of the best lecturers and supervisors which will have a positive impact on my student upon my return. The experience I’m hoping to get will widen my horizon, sharpen my perspective and most importantly equip me with innovative ideas on Instrumental Method of Analysis.




Public Health


I`m a bilingual midwife and Public Health Nutritionist, and have a degree in Nutrition from Cardiff Metropolitan University. I am writing to display my interest in applying for my master`s degree, however the public health course conciliates to be an interesting challenge, which I would enjoy engaging with.

During the 3rd year of my studies, completing my degree and learning all the nutritional aspect I became involved, volunteered, with the MEND program. In the ten weeks of being involved, my enthusiasm has continually expanded with the work experiences. I am a motivated person in field of Public Health Nutrition. I will apply all the knowledge that I have gained through the three years studying the field Health and Nutrition to help all communities with different background to eat well, and to achieve a healthy lifestyle, as well as to promote health. I also have the ability to organizing different activity for those who are needs help with health. According to different factor that are involves such as age, gender, culture, ethnicity and environment. I choose to apply in public health course, as health became at the top of all priorities in life, which require providing care with more understanding of all aspects that are completely incorporate. In my opinion, nothing can make a person happier than to be in good health. I have no doubt that course of public health will be a big accomplishment for me as professional and it is requiring hard working and contributing within the public as well as many consultations need to carry for the public encouraging for better life. Actually having a master`s degree is one of my goal for the reason that higher certificate will demonstrate your professionally and would exposed more opportunities to have a moral and higher position in future and how suitable you are in the field that takes. I believe that I am the most suitable person for the course of public health. As I have work, experience on different health projects promotes a healthier eating. I am a qualified person I worked for a year as an intern student where I learnt how to communicate with patients and children. This role enabled me to explore the job of a midwife. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with all different cases of pregnant women and gain knowledge and skills from each situation. With a solid background based on theory and practical. The experiences gained while volunteer with MEND program have further developed a number of skills for example communication with a public. Recently I have volunteer with MEND program at Fairwater Leisure Centre in Cardiff. My job involves looking at children aged 7-14, and helped to teach them about healthy eating and well-being which unable me to apply my knowledge. Also working with team and learn new skills which aimed to improve level of work performance over time. That`s involving techniques event in Cardiff bay. Which enable me to gain knowledge and understanding about the “5 a day” message, I used to working with a group and we agreed that this topic would be most suitable. The reason that the environment of Techniques being fundamentally targeted at young children, as group we thought that the five a day message is crucially important for this age group because of the manifestation of obesity within young children increasing of the years. IT qualification, my skills of using a computer programs are develop, through using it most of my time doing my works and researching. Including the uses of SPSS software for statistical analysis, NETWISP nutritional analysis software, which is about food intake records, recipe, menus, and Microsoft Office application. Also extra training skills include a certification in Level 2 RSPH Food Hygiene.

I am reliable, healthy and physically fit. I am well organised, punctual and can work well in a very busy environment. I have demonstrated experience as a nutritionist with supervisory and management skills. I motivate and encourage staff to maintain a high level of performance. I am confident that my experience and personable disposition would be an asset within the health care course project. I would be grateful for an interview to discuss the specific ways in which I could help within any organisation of public health.




Public Health


I chose to study Public Health to gain a better understanding of micro-organisms (and their biological processes) and the various roles they play in life activities. Studying microbiology has helped me to understand the two sides there are to microbes; they could be harmful (as you will see in the study of courses like Parasitology, Bacteriology, virology and Pathogenesis) and at the same time beneficial to human existence (as you will see in the study of courses like Bio-technology, Mycology, food microbiology and pharmaceutical microbiology)

Shortly after my first degree, I embarked on a one year service to my country under the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Scheme, where I was posted to work in a hospital (Bimma Hospital). In my capacity as a health worker in the hospital laboratory, I have seen first-hand, the various ways pathogenic micro-organisms can destroy life, through wrecking havoc on human health. Sometimes, even human parts start to fester. I collect samples from affected body parts (urine, blood, stool, sputum) and stain them, before observing under the microscope for pathogens. I have also witnessed first-hand through sensing of cultures, using antibiotic discs (Antibiotics are a type of antimicrobial used specifically against bacteria, and are often used in medical treatments of bacterial infections. These antibiotics are themselves synthesised from other micro-organisms such as bacteria and Fungi) the various means by which micro-organisms can be used as a tool to restore man’s failing health. Even the various drugs administered to patients are synthesised from other micro-organisms.

My decision to study public health at masters level was inspired by the Ebola pandemic that recently plagued my beloved country, Nigeria, and indeed the better part of Africa, claiming thousands of lives. As public health refers to all organised measures (whether public or private) to prevent diseases, promote health and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy, and focuses on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases.

I expect that on completion of this MPH programme, I would be able to apply epidemiological principles, statistical techniques and critical appraisal ethically to the problem of disease causation, the assessment of health needs of my community, and the planning and evaluation of public health programmes. Thus, contributing my own quota to the development of the health sector in Nigeria, and Africa at large.




Public Health


I have always had a profound interest in the healthcare profession and its delivery services and a Postgraduate degree in Public Health will be a personal fulfillment of my set goals in life. I have always had a passion for humanitarian services especially in the epistemology of disease prevalence. This made me pursue a first degree (BSc Microbiology) within this domain.

My interest in this field is further aroused from the fact that I come from one of the oil producing areas in Nigeria, popularly referred to as the Niger-Delta region. This region and in particular my home community (Ilaje Community) has been plagued with oil spillage, thus resulting in environmental degradation and disease prevalence. As a result, water and soil pollution has impacted this rich cultural and economically blessed region with varying health risks. This dilemma kindles my quest for knowledge and how I can positively contribute to ameliorate this onus.

My experience in this field began during my second year in the university, where I had the opportunity to work in a medical laboratory and a food processing company for 6 months as an intern. During this period, i was able to appreciate the impact of healthcare professionals on the well- being of a nation. Although i had a very enlightening experience in the food processing company, I was more interested in the healthcare environment.

Again, I had the opportunity to gain more field experience following my graduation from the university in 2009 and the opportunity to secure a one year placement with the Roll Back Malaria Initiative with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). This NGO, Yakubu Gowon Centre had this project ongoing in the North-west region of Nigeria, funded by Global Funds and World Bank, they were saddled with the responsibility of malaria parasite eradication in this region. I was actively involved in the implementation and administration of this project, which I found very intriguing. At the end of this placement, I was again invited to continue as a volunteer, where I continued to work in several Roll Back Malaria and Polio eradication projects for 3 years in other regions of the country. However, as a volunteer I worked only part-time, as I had secured a full time job as a customer care representative with a multinational corporation. My passion for humanitarian services motivated my commitment to continue as a volunteer to the Roll back Malaria projects which were wholly successful.

Under the tutelage of my then Supervisor/Regional Logistics officer, Hajia Aisha Senchi, I was exposed to many elements of the Nigerian healthcare system and my interest in public health grew. This propelled my decision to further my studies in this field. In addition, with the Nigerian government long term development agenda for oil producing regions coupled with the government’s commitment for gender empowerment presents a good career opportunity for me in this field. Also, as a young woman from such impacted community, with an international master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Bedfordshire, my opportunities are indeed limitless. It is my prayers that this privilege to study abroad will equip me with the relevant knowledge and skills to impact positively to my community after my studies.

My decision to further my studies after almost 8 years was based on my personal decision to study abroad and this comes with a lot of expenses. This delay was again further prolonged as I got married, started a family and had to raise a child. However, having diligently saved up for this task, I believe it is never too late to acquire knowledge.

I am particularly interested in University of Bedfordshire because the University’s reputation on research excellence and positive reviews demonstrates the quality of knowledge I envisage to acquire from a master’s degree in Public health Also, the department’s ability to attract multinational students makes me look forward to an exciting learning environment where ideas and experience on the nature of public health in different countries will be shared amongst different nationals.




Health, safety and environment


I have always been fascinated about things that occur naturally yet are of great economic value. Things like rocks that contain valuable minerals, precious stones, precious metals, water, crude oil and so on. Hence, my interest to study along the line of nature. For my first degree, I studied geology technology and during the course of my study, I learnt a lot about the formation, occurrence, exploration and value of the afore-mentioned naturally occurring substances. However, I found that I became more interested in management of the various hazards associated with manufacturing industries. To this effect, I realized that I will also need to acquire a solid education in a related and relevant field, hence my decision to do a master’s degree in health, safety and environment. I took this decision because this course provides a general introduction to occupational hazards while also covering important areas such as; introduction to health and safety in the workplace, exploring the key challenges and emerging technologies that are influencing the laws, rules, guidance and processes fashioned to protect employees, the public and the environment from harm and most importantly, a practical application of all these.

As can be noted, Nigeria is not up to par when it comes to the health and safety issues in many of our multinational companies. This is why this course is especially important and relevant. Health, safety and environment is a degree that deals with the creation of organised efforts and processes for identifying the hazards in the workplace and reducing accidents and exposure to harmful substances and situations. Furthermore, it entails the training of personnel in accident response, prevention, preparedness in emergencies and the use of protective clothing and equipment. With regards to the environmental impact, it involves focusing on an approach to complying with environmental regulations, such as the management of waste or air emissions and the reduction of the carbon footprint of our companies. The applications of the degree will help to improve the general air quality around a particular location, address specific aspects of workplace safety and improve the overall health and wellbeing of employees and the entire community.

In conclusion, as a student from a developing country, I am very aware of the numerous pollution issues we face particularly with regards to carbon emissions, toxic waste, oil spillage, vandalism of oil and gas pipelines. There is also the misappropriation of oil resources and ineffective safety practices in the workplace to mention a few. Studying health, safety and environment will equip me with both the theoretical and practical knowledge I will need to impact the relevant industries in my country positively. I acknowledge the fact that it will require a lot of hard work from me to study this course at a post-graduate level, but my abilities to work with little or no supervision and function effectively under pressure together with my great team spirit will give me an advantage to perform very well and prepare me for whatever challenges I might face in the course of my study. Additionally, I believe that the fact that I majored in geology for my first degree has provided me with a strong footing on which I can stand firm and study health, safety and environment and greatly excel therein.




Agroecology and Food Security


I applied for a place in MSc Agroecology and Food Security because I am very interested in the modules offered particularly, Agroecological Production System, Organic Agriculture and Management of Natural and Environmental Hazards. My interest was aroused during my undergraduate study at Imo State University, Owerri Nigeria, where I had food processing and the environment, food safety risks and hazards etc and I had project on food processing and the availability all year round with the nutritional composition. I graduated with a second class honors (lower division), achieved a high grade in my research project and hope to do same in my MSc dissertation.

I choose UK as a country of study because further education in the UK is renowned for its superior quality scholars, research and facilities which offers basic platform of carrying on one’s career and my choice for Coventry was based on the reputation it has built for itself both in teaching and research excellence reflected in the large number of enrolled postgraduate student each year. This diversity in student population/wide collaborations with institutions within and outside Europe enriches the system by creating a healthy competitive and challenging learning environment, an opportunity for a wider learning environment; an avenue to share interest and disseminate information among student. More so, its renowned staff strength guarantees adequate support throughout my program and provide room for mentorship.

I have so far shown lot of academic acumen evidence by my continuous pursuit for knowledge and my academic performance. I have also exercised lot of strength and passion in the things I do, always wanting to outdo my past and to chart new frontiers for myself, which is borne out of the fact that I desire success. I have a good mastery of both written and spoken English Language as well as the ability to comprehend situations quickly. I can work effectively under pressure and in challenging circumstances with little or no supervision, independent or as a group, to produce expected results. An example can be seen in my being among the committee that organized food week in my department.

During my work placement, at CHI Limited Nigeria, reinforced my interest in the area of food security and food quality control I was able to apply Government legislation in my working environment and my main role is to work as quality control/assurance while processed food had undergone the necessary requirement. My choice of program will give me an expanded knowledge on the subject area, hence, gaining the required competence and expertise in food security and Agroecology.

I look forward to the educational challenges I may come across whilst studying and I hope not only to progress at a personal level but also become one step closer to laying the foundation for a successful future in Agroecology and food security.




Health Safety and Environment


In other to honor my Nation “NIGERIA” and to obey my clarion call, I participated in national youth service corp in 2010 where I experienced practical knowledge of life and essence of education and how to shape and direct the life of man and his environment and also obtained a Proficiency certificate in management (chartered) through Nigerian institute of management.

However, in other to direct my insatiable taste and quest for academic and moral excellence, I decided to learn in your reputable institute to equip myself with the fundamental theories and practical knowledge in Health Safety and Environment. It has been my earnest desire to study in a good environment with highly qualified lecturers that will guide me acquire new skills and best strategic approaches which I hope to reproduce in Nigeria.

Consequently, I know with the right knowledge and education man cannot conquer the earth but all the solution to worldly problems are embedded in our capacity to research and evaluate and invest solution within the shortest period of time.

This is my basic reason why I choose your institution in the first place, because I believe the history, standard, academic, culture, moral and conductive studying environment over the years for the school, which I hope to gain admission.

My professional goal is to become an innovative researcher, provide guidance on policy and planning for sustainable development throughout the health sector in order to save a life and achieve set goals of an organization. I wish to assure the school management, if given the opportunity of admission, I promise to be of good moral and academic excellence throughout my stay in the school and the country.




Public Health


My desire to do this course (Public Health and Safety) is because I have always shown a rising interest into Environmental Management and safety as it strikes me as a worthwhile and fulfilling career to choose. I am a confident student willing to provide the university with good communication skills, supporting others and being able to interact closely with them. I think that studying a master’s Degree in Public Health and Safety would be rewarding and create different pathways for my future.

My career plans are centred in the future of the quality of care, safety in my country. I would like to go into lecturing in other to impact knowledge to my generation concerning Safety. Advancing my career safety would satisfy me, helping others with their needs and seeing them to better environment and safety.

I have come to realise, largely due to the existence of experts who are empowered through their scientific knowledge and legislation to make sure that business comply with very high Public Health standard, thus protecting the public from illness and exposure to harmful materials. I have always wanted to follow a profession that makes use of potential for scientific and technical expertise to help society.

My goal has been to pursue this ambition through working in environmental health.

M.Sc. in Public Health in University of Bedfordshire seems to offer an unparalled level of thoroughness in its approach to this field.

I also believe that the M.Sc. in Public Health and Safety will be the perfect opportunity to learn more about these matters before I proceed to a career in this most important professional sector.




Psychology


Prior to my knowledge of psychology, I had always wanted to be a medical doctor. I always dreamt of helping people overcome their medical challenges. I was very engrossed with medicine as a kid but as I grew older I discovered that I mustn’t be a medical doctor to solve problem. I learnt about psychology from a counselor in secondary school. I picked up interest and it burns through my undergraduate program.

I was so interested in psychology that after my class had a two-week clinical exposure in a remedial school, I had to go back to stay with the school for another six months, where I felt complete tasked at the lives of autistic children, understanding their life was a puzzle. I had to undergo personal research on autism which exposed me to the works of L. Juane Heflin and Donna Fiorino Alaimo.

I am interested in studying child and adolescent mental health, particularly issues of substance use, risk and resilience, pathology and aggression, and how social and family contexts affect each of these issues. I am particularly interested in ways we can make growing up less difficult and ways we can help children that I have worked with live a more promising and fulfilling lives.

I decided to apply to the University for several reasons. Particularly the strong preventive focus of the Child Clinical area of emphasis is the one that meshes well with what I am looking for. The Psychology program at the University has everything I am looking for in a program just as I feel I have what the University is looking for in an incoming student. I would be very excited to join the incoming class at the University for 2017.




Public Health


I would like to do my Masters Program in Public Health in University of Bedfordshire. I did my Secondary school education in Nigeria, where there are a lot of unresolved public health issues.hence increasing my keen interest in public health resolutions. As a result, I went ahead to acquire my medical degree in Ukraine, because I didn’t want to be apart of the constant strike that baffles the educational system in Nigeria and I graduated on the 24th june 2016 as a Medical Doctor.I have also worked as a volunteer in military hospital,yaba My interest in Public Health is high and that’s why I would like to further my education with a masters degree leading to my search of a reputable University in United Kingdom to give me a broad knowledge. I choose United Kingdom because of its high ranking, moral and standard in Health and Education. I want to pursue my masters in Public Health Program with a concentration in Health Behaviour and Educationin order to research and implement intervention policies aimed at providing the population with direct access to health care services. Also, I inspire to infuse health care concepts in young men and women by integrating health awareness in educational program and conducting campaigns that would elevate a sense of responsibility for a better well being. Furthermore, I believe that my studies in public health at Bedfordshire, a school renown for its commitment to excellence in all that it does, will enable me to exhaust and develop my capacities to the full, thus allowing me to become a successful well rounded individual, to enable me play an active role in my community. Finally, I know the MPH program will be demanding, but I am ready to give it my best, for I’m very dedicated and hard working to become a public health practitioner. I look forward to studying in your prestigious university

I also believe that the M.Sc. in Environmental Health and Safety will be the perfect opportunity to learn more about these matters before I proceed to a career in this most important professional sector.




Public Health


I am applying to study public health at a post-graduate level at University of Bedfordshire because it will assist me in developing my knowledge and skills on the subject. I just concluded my BSc Nursing at the University of Worcester where I achieved a First Class degree. I have gained a good understanding of health related topics and this has prompted me to go further and broaden my knowledge. I believe I can achieve this by gaining advanced knowledge in public health.

Public health interests me because it provides a platform for me to progress in my career and develop public health skills including safety and preventive skills. I was opportune to be one of the staff recruited in my clinic in Nigeria to fight the spread of Ebola. This further developed my interest in public health issues which will help me grow in my profession as not only will I have nursing skills but also public health skills. I will also be able to make key contributions in any organisation I find myself. I also believe I will be able to understand as well as address various health challenges faced by the public daily. This is important to me because I come from one of the developing countries in Africa where public health issues are one of the big challenges faced by the people.

I believe I am suitable for this course as I have a solid health background. I am a registered nurse in my country and I just successfully concluded my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing at the University of Worcester. As a result, I possess the skills and experience that will assist me to succeed in this course. Therefore, gaining this admission will be of great benefit to both me and the public.




Public Health


My ambition to become a Public Health Officer is inspired by a love of the science involved in healthcare and many years experience of working in the service of other people. I am applying as a mature student who has recently completed a degree in Medicine and Surgery at Vinnitsya National Medical University, Ukraine. I have spent years as a Youth Worker for various agencies and also volunteered and served as interns at hospitals, a combination of duties which I believe is good evidence of my ability to work under pressure and to meet the responsibilities of the workplace. The role of a medical practitioner attracts me because it allows me to use my scientific knowledge and skills to help those who are at their most vulnerable and to work as part of a medical team in an environment in which the highest possible standards are called for. I am excited by the prospect of working alongside medical specialists during the most intense stages of their professional lives and providing critical care, both in theatre and in the Intensive Care Unit. I would take pride in successfully meeting the demands of my post, ensuring that instruments and equipment are available and monitoring the patient’s progress through the use of sophisticated anaesthetic, surgical and diagnostic devices. I am eager to play my part in such intense work and to be seen as an utterly reliable and expert member of the vital team.

Throughout my working career I have gained a deep understanding of the importance of meeting the needs of others and have fulfilled my responsibilities in a mature and efficient manner.

I am highly organized, have great initiative but am always eager to learn, and it is in my nature to be able to empathise with those in my care. I am totally committed to my goal and believe I have the necessary qualities to become a very successful Applied Public Health Officer.




Biotechnology


I have become fascinated with my current job and considering the current civilization status especially that of my locality in Nigeria, I have generated profound interest in biotechnology as it will aid in helping to heal the world by harnessing nature's own toolbox and using our own genetic makeup to heal and guide lines of research by Reducing rates of infectious disease, Saving millions of children's lives, Changing the odds of serious, life-threatening conditions affecting millions around the world.

Biotech would also be used to improve crop insect resistance, enhances crop herbicide tolerance and facilitates the use of more environmentally sustainable farming practices. Biotech is helping to feed the world by Generating higher crop yields with fewer inputs. The science of biotechnology would also be used in Developing crops with enhanced nutrition profiles that solve vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, Producing foods free of allergens and toxins such as mycotoxin and Improving food and crop oil content to help improve cardiovascular health.

My ultimate aim of being a Bio-technologist is to utilize my knowledge and training which I receive through my masters degree to work and create an effectual technology which will add value to human life.




Nursing


As an ambitious nurse who has devoted time in thinking about the future of Nursing profession and how to also be relevant in improving the healthcare system in general. I realised that engaging in thorough research study which seems to have been getting less attention among healthcare professionals in developing countries will help in enhancing quality care through evidence based practice.

My nursing career started in year 2001 with just the basic Nursing program (Registered Nurse Certificate) which enabled me to work as a staff nurse in a teaching hospital environments. During this period, I observed that, having a registered nurse certificate without additional qualification will limit my impact in improving the healthcare system globally. Therefore, I applied to undergo a BSC programme in Nursing in University of Sunderland United Kingdom between 2014 and 2015 which also propelled me to a MSC and MBA programme in the University (University of Bedfordshire) UK to acquire more Knowledge.

I have been taught to always adopt the core values of Compassion, Caring, Competence, Courage, Commitment and effective Communication when relating with patients. This was inculcated into my practice as a part-time Healthcare assistance in Elderly Care Home in the UK. I discovered that less attention were given to care of Frail Elderly due to limited knowledge and most of these elderly are community dwellers with aggregate of social challenges which were put together as Social Vulnerability. Additionally, the global population is increasingly getting older with rapid increase in the prevalence of frailty among community dwelling elderly. Hence, the need for me to carry out a research on Exploring the Link between Social Vulnerability and Frailty Among Community Dwelling Elderly to improve quality of healthcare towards the Elderly. Therefore, I conducted a systematic review on this topic which is yet to be published. Further, study on Social Vulnerability in relation to Frailty has been sparingly conducted in some developed countries but limited in the United Kingdom. Having realised the link between Social Vulnerability and Frailty among community dwelling elderly, the need for my interest in conducting a primary research to explore the impact of this social variables on Frailty.

Having acknowledged that United Kingdom education is well recognized all over the world. More importantly, the first four top university ranking are from the UK. This shows the quality of education in the UK universities. The UK universities are inspected regularly to uphold the high quality and standard laid down by the government.

Right now the UK research is the world leading with international excellence and relevance. This would also assist in propagating evidence base practices in healthcare system globally and the duration of most courses in the UK universities are short compared to other countries. The cultural diversity of life in the UK is unequalled, considering the cosmopolitan towns and cities to historical centres to the ancient buildings which could enrich my cultural perception.

Studying in the UK University will give me the opportunity to study in a core academic environment with great facilities for learning with ease such as the innovative library and excellent research supervisory team. This facilitated my critical thinking skills and problem solving techniques which would enhance my research programme. Universities in the United Kingdom are known to be international student friendly institutions. The staffs are highly dedicated and experienced expertise in their field.As an ambitious nurse who has devoted time in thinking about the future of Nursing profession and how to also be relevant in improving the healthcare system in general.

Public Health


My decision to get a Masters Degree in public health is as a result of my enthusiasm towards affecting the health sector of my country and Africa at large positively. In my bid to achieving my goal, I undertook in my degree course a project work titled Evaluation of intestinal parasitic nematodes of Chrysichthys macropogon and Eleotris vittata from cross river basin. The aim of this project was to identify the parasites associated with the consumption of these species of fishes which will in turn affect the health of the people. Having identified the parasites, measures to prevent the outbreak of diseases associated with such parasites was an area of concern in my project work. As a goal-oriented individual, I believe that obtaining a masters degree in public health will help in achieving my goal of a sickness free continent through the practice of preventive medicine.

My career objective is to contribute to a world free of sickness through awareness campaign and practice of preventive medicine through collaboration with health agencies across the globe. This will be achieved through my acquired skills in the course of my studies.

Over the years I have worked as an ad hock staff with the ministry of health in collaboration with world health on polio eradication. This has exposed my knowledge of preventive medicine through the immunisation process targeted at eradicating polio in Nigeria and Africa in general.

My choice of school for University of Bedfordshire was based on research, reputation, ranking, graduates’ impact on the society and extensive knowledge of health related courses, affordability and the course itself. I believe with this degree, I will be well equipped in epidemiology and biostatistics which will be used in analyzing the health of a population and the threats which is the basis of public health.

The University of Bedfordshire is my University of choice considering the good curriculum and eminent professors at my disposal to learn with. Also considering its well ranked position amongst other universities in the United Kingdom, it would be a perfect place for me to acquire the skills I require to achieve my vision, as well as providing a suitable and conducive environment, that would make learning a pleasure. I chose this Program, due to its uniqueness, which I absolutely believe would create an opening for me to affect the world health sector positively.




Nursing


Nursing is a very challenging and demanding career; however, I feel the rewards would be great and that I am ready to embark on this career. I am eager to pursue a career in which I am able to help and care for people, becoming a nurse would allow me to fulfil this ambition.

Nursing is a career for dedicated, reliable, trusting people who are able to develop relationships with patients quickly. I have these skills and I genuinely want to make a difference to people, to assist them and their families through difficult times when they are at their most vulnerable.

The role of nursing is changing as nurses are far more involved in the welfare of patients and this is placing more responsibility on nurses. I am confident of embracing this challenge and to take advantage of these changes and opportunities and use them to further my career.

I believe will be useful in the nursing environment as it will be necessary to use this strength to communicate successfully with other health professionals to determine what level of care is best for a patient.

I perform learning support once a week with an elderly lady with additional support needs. This involves undertaking activities with her and supporting her to communicate difficulties when she is finding things challenging.

This is very rewarding as I can see what a difference it makes for her to have someone who is willing to listen and has made me realise how important this skill is when caring for people. Another activity I find rewarding is performing activities with the elderly people.

I am a young leader, and this is very valuable to me as I interact with older people and participate in activities with them. It has greatly increased my confidence as I often have to talk to the elderly people in a group setting and this has developed my interpersonal skills.

I am also involved in the peer education scheme '4' which involves going to different Guiding units and raising awareness of issues through activities and games. This has been incredibly beneficial for my confidence and my planning and organisational skills.

These skills have been developed as I have to co-ordinate the sessions as well as talking to a group of people that I am not familiar with. As one of only two in4mers in East Lothian this role is very demanding.

I have been employed as a waitress for three years in the local hotel. This has been excellent for my interpersonal skills as it involves talking to people I am not familiar with. A skill that will be transferable to nursing. I have also undertaken work experience, through school, at Harlawhill Day Care Centre.

This gave me a useful insight into the caring profession and has increased my motivation to work within it. I organised my own work experience at the Edington Cottage Hospital and this gave me an idea of what working in a hospital setting will be like.

Both experiences served to fuel my desire to gain entry to the nursing profession. I also plan to work as a nursing auxiliary through the nurse bank next summer.

In the future I may wish to pursue a career in Paediatric nursing and I feel that an adult nursing degree will be the first step in giving me this opportunity.

I am deeply passionate about nursing and I am already looking forward to a long and fulfilling career in this field. I am the first person in my family to pursue further education.




Public Health - PhD


In the field of public health, had developed special interest in epidemiology with an un-quenchable passion and I strongly desire to be a change agent in this arm of public health. I have worked towards this ambition via project work on the “Ebola Virus Disease” during the epidemic in Nigeria. Also, had coordinated research works as a volunteer for the Association for Reproductive and Family Health; a non-governmental organisation in Nigeria with operational emphasis on reproductive health, family planning, tuberculosis control, malaria, cancer prevention initiative, social works etc. I was also one of the Public health staff who worked at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Nigeria during the peak of the Ebola virus disease epidemic, though an adhoc engagement which expired after the country was declared free of the virus by the world health organisation in October, 2014.

The study of epidemiology as the basic unit or core of public health is extremely germane in preventive medicine. The field of epidemiology systematically studies/assesses the distribution and determinants of disease, subsequently using the outcome of the assessment to control disease. This, no doubt impacts greatly the awareness of the people on the risk factors for both communicable and non-communicable disease. This is an excellent preventive tool as it changes the perception of individuals towards healthy lifestyle.

My research interest is centered around emerging infectious disease as this poses a global public health threat. This interest is borne out of the keen observation of the consistent epidemic nature, emerging infectious disease presents whenever there was an outbreak, extreme case fatality rate, and the problem of a no-known-cure for virtually all emerging infectious diseases except proper case management. Good examples include the Ebola virus disease, Zikka virus disease etc. My focus is to combine rigorous academic study with hands on experience and I do believe your institution offer extraordinary opportunities for these endeavors.

I am requesting admission to Ph.D program in Epidemiology. I believe my previous epidemiological experience, academic preparations and personal qualities have prepared me for whatever would be expected of me during the course of this program. Lastly, I believe that I can contribute to your program via research and multidisciplinary collaborations. My goal is to utilize the intellectual richness and the diversity of your institution to enhance quality of life and impact the world at large.




Public Health


The dream of being a healthcare provider has been with me right from when I was a little girl, I always loved to care for family and friends when they were ill and monitor them till they were in perfect health, as it gave me a sense of fulfilment. I picked up interest in healthcare and studied pharmacy at Igbinedion University, Nigeria, got hands-on experience through my one year internship with Alpha pharmacy and stores limited, Lagos Nigeria and also worked as the resident Pharmacist with Military hospital Lagos. With these opportunities, I picked up interest in Community Pharmacy and as such currently a Community Pharmacist with Alpha Pharmacy and Stores Limited, Lagos, Nigeria. I developed kin interest in Public Health due to my dissatisfaction with the state of the Health Sector in my country; the state of Community and Environmental Health is poor as we still deal with a disturbing rate of environmental pollution. Not neglecting the situation surrounding Nutritional health in the county, where we have children dying of malnutrition, hypertension and diabetes in most of the geriatric patients.

My research interest lies in Nutritional Health as I have come across patients from different spheres of life with different health conditions that could be well managed if only they could maintain a great state of Nutritional Health. I would love the opportunity to help make lives better as Nutritional Health plays a key role in enhancing immunological functions, physical growth and general well-being. I have chosen the this University because the University’s School of Public Health is very in resources with a very strong foundation and extensive research history in the area of Public Health. The program permeates many developmental gaps I have seen in my career and I am confident it will be immensely beneficial for my career development and professional aspirations. I have taken time to look through the program curriculum as well as testimonials from alumni’s of the school and the feedback is tremendously encouraging. On completion of the program, I plan to use the acquired knowledge to help redesign the state of Nutritional Health in my country and Africa at large, by educating and giving proper advice to the community

I am a firm believer of the saying; “the best way to learn, is to learn from the best”. I bring along a strong grasp of fundamentals in Pharmacy practice, an aptitude for teamwork, a zest for challenges and an enthusiastic desire to learn all I can. I would like to take with me, in addition to knowledge of Public Health, a network of strong relationships with my professors and fellow students. I believe that my background and qualifications are suitable for a Master’s in Public Health and I hope you will agree with me by giving me an offer to study with your prestigious University.




Nursing


There is a plethora of reasons which instigated the interest to study masters in Adult Nursing. To start with, this course is intertwined with my interest in the psychological and physical wellbeing of people. Which is evidenced in how I majored in psychology for my Bachelor of Science. Whist studying, I worked part-time as a Health Care Assistant and got interested in becoming a Nurse. I was attracted to the mannerism in which people were treated with care and compassion whilst going through various health issues. This was a source of motivation to apply for Adult Nursing.

Apart from improving my qualifications, another benefit of this course is self-actualisation, which is the fulfilment of my desire and thirst for knowledge. I selected the University of Herefordshire because of the opportunity of getting accredited as a Registered Nurse. Moreover 50% of the course is dedicated to practice, this will not only be a great avenue for personal and career development but will also build my professional network and create various job opportunities.

As an international student, my main priority is my education and luckily, I do not have any commitment that will interfere with my studies. I have just completed my Bachelor of science in Psychology with a first class whilst engaging in other extracurricular activities, like undertaking internship and volunteering in different settings. This shows how efficient I am in time management. Therefore, I will be fully committed to gaining knowledge, professional networking, and the acquisition and improving of skills which will be relevant in my chosen career as a Registered Nurse.

A career as a Registered Nurse is very appealing, and this course is the pathway between where I am and where I want to be. In addition, it also offers accreditation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council and expands my career prospects.




Biomedical Science


My determination to study Biomedical Science originates from my role as the primary caregiver to my grandfather following his health challenge, epilepsy and decreased mobility. This has enlightened me to the wide variety of uses a single medicine has. An example of this is aspirin, which I previously believed was solely for pain relief, but has helped to prevent my father from developing blood clots by thinning his blood. His illness has undoubtedly driven my desire to enter the biomedical field.

Originating from a culture which relied on herbal medicines and recipes, I have followed the progress of the pharmaceutical industry in the development and refining of Paclitaxel using the bark of the Pacific yew tree with interest.

The wide-ranging impacts that science makes on society has kindled a sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness within me from an early age; the workings and mechanics of the human body have always fascinated me. The fact that its many diverse systems are now able to be artificially reproduced to prolong life is particularly astounding, an example of which is the Berlin heart which is used to sustain the lives of young patients whilst they are awaiting a heart transplant.

Studying the sciences has pushed me beyond my known boundaries and has taught me to think logically and sequentially when approaching problems. I have always been interested in exploring beyond the textbook and delving deeper, a skill that was an asset throughout my High School Biology course where I went beyond the syllabus to further my knowledge on the various diseases I studied.

I chose to study in the UK because of its unique method of education as its degree is widely recognised globally. The University of Bedfordshire is well known to me because I have carried out so much research about their reaching methods as well as the location of the institution. The institution being so close to London is quite exciting and allows its students to easily make trips to London. The lecturers in the school are highly qualified with good experience in the field.

At the end of my study I would love to secure a good job within the medical field in Nigeria.




Public Health


I wish to apply and state my personal motivation to do M.Sc. in Public Health at the …..… University September 2019.

I am a graduate of Biochemistry and a certificate holder in Health, Safety and Environment (HSE); and, I have always fancied programs geared towards health promotion and disease prevention thereby analyzing the health of a population. Public Health promotion has been my focus after my undergraduate program as it covers fully the practice of epidemiology, methods of research and evaluation of a population health.

My desire and interest towards an environment free from diseases motivated my career path, I am experienced in health management systems especially in global environmental health through community service. I have volunteered for a couple of health based Non-Governmental Organization whose goals were geared towards providing relief to people suffering from health and environmental challenges which cuts across managing epidemics, promoting the vulnerable people’s interests, protecting our collective environment, providing basic social services and undertaking community development.

During my National Youth Service (a compulsory one-year service to humanity undertaken in Nigeria by all graduates), I served as the president of the Medical Community Development Service (CDS) group, where I was opportuned to lead various groups on campaigns on benefits of clean environment, healthy living to issues of drug abuse etc. I was also responsible for organizing community outreaches, delegating responsibilities, anchoring meetings, and managing the group’s funds.

The relevance of this course cannot be over emphasized especially in my country’s health sector. Being from Nigeria, a developing country with a population of over 180 million people where limited resources competes with malnutrition which can contribute to the risk of developing some illnesses and other health problems. My country needs good, competent and efficient people to run the health care system as well as interventions to improve health outcomes.

……. University is one of the highly rated and excellent universities in the UK known for its innovative researches; I have decided to place my application for a master’s degree program here. After I read carefully the curriculum and the course requirements, I believe that it perfectly matches my professional research interests and profile.

I understand, this admission is competitive, attracting highly motivated professionals and students, but I am convinced that my previous academic records, professional experience, leadership skills and community service activities gives me a strong recommendation for a place. Receiving this admission will bring me a step closer to achieving my career goals. I would be honoured if you decide to accept my candidature.




Public Health


“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a fner spirit oo hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourselo io you oorget the errand” – Woodrow Wilson. Few words, a wealth of Inspiration. I have always believed that there is more to life than merely getting by - getting good grades, being gainfully employed, fnding someone to share your life with, doing just enough to raise kids and put food on the table- All of which are beautiful experiences. I believe there is the need to reach out and touch the lives of those whose ill fortune, by some twist of fate, have become motivation for our thanksgivings. This is the birthing place of my vision. Humanitarian services give me a drive. There is a sense of fulflment in impacting, rather than being impacted on. I made myself available during my undergraduate days to volunteer with some organizations; an NGO and a potable water producing company. My time with the latter was for a more extensive period than the former. Seeing as over 39% of homes in Nigeria lack access to improved drinking water sources, I volunteered my time to make water accessible within my environment, also fnding time to educate them on the need for drinking water from healthy sources. While there I was entrusted with the responsibility of making sure that both the working environment and the potable water produced were in compliance with the standards of the concerned regulatory bodies like the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) and the Ministry of Health. Narrow-minded as I was in my early undergraduate days, even then I knew that much pain can be averted and alleviated if more information regarding health is made available. Giving my time to that potable water producing cause taught me a great deal about water related diseases, but there’s a hunger for more. Epidemiology, being the corner stone of Public health, cannot be taken out of the running in the quest to better the lives of people health wise. A feld where one can, not only identify risk factors of diseases, but also be involved in the development of methodologies used in clinical research, this here, is where my interest in Public Health lies. While everyone believes they can do just about anything, there is ‘the’ right way of getting things done. With this Master’s degree, there couldn’t be better way to become the person I envision. Cliché as it may sound, it remains true: “you cannot give what you do not have”. There’s still so much ground between the person I am now and the person my world needs, this ground I must cover and I know this Institution can bring me steps closer. Now, I may not be the most qualifed candidate for this opportunity, I wasn’t the best graduating student in my set; I belonged with the multitude that came into college with an amazingly myopic perspective, only to fnd a vastly diferent world. Right now I can say I am one that learnt; I almost lost my way, I adjusted, found my footing and kept moving (my transcript has a lot to say about that). And that’s all I’ve done since then, learn and improve on myself. Needless for me to try explaining the relevance of this degree in Public Health, I’d rather share what it means to my soon-to-begin career. It’s no news that as a developing country, we still have a crude approach to things, especially regarding health. We in the Third World Countries are getting the short end of the stick when it comes to research. Some of us need to go out there to see what cutting edge techniques are available to save time and lives simultaneously. Also, getting this degree is a step in achieving my dream of giving back to my community. It’ll bring fulflment, one that merely being successful cannot bring; that which can only come by knowing that the errand of living for others has been attended to. An even greater joy comes from knowing that you can give people what they can’t really aford because there is no reward one can receive that equates saving lives, so why put a price tag on service to humanity? The opportunity to render selfess service is another interesting aspect this degree ofers me. My heart beats for a time when I can contribute my quota to bring about a change in our health sector. It is this passion that drives my academic pursuit. Canada can be home away from home, from my readings. It is one place with many great Institutions. It is almost impossible for one to conceive just how afordable access to sound knowledge is, but that’s the beauty. I’m honoured to have found this opportunity. I believe that this is a place where every one determined person that become all they ever dreamed to be, and some more. I can only hope, and be optimistic that I’m granted this privilege to learn of you; to be further equipped to join the army of those rendering selfess service to humanity.




Public Health


One of the most crucial decisions I ever took in life was choosing a career path, either to become a medical Doctor or an Engineer. Growing up, I really admired Engineers and Doctors of which I ended up choosing the later over the former. The dilemma as to which profession to venture into lingered throughout my primary school days until my first year in Junior High School, when something memorable happened. My Aunt had complications during childbirth, which almost took her life. As a result of unavailability of a doctor at a certain health care center located in the rural area where she was at the time. Despite the fact that she was rushed to the medical center on time when labor started with fetal kicks still present, she however, lost the baby because there was no doctor on ground to properly monitor the labor as it progressed. The process was further complicated and the decision-making was beyond the scope of the healthcare personnel’s present. The skills of a doctor would have gone a long way, but since doctors were hardly posted to those areas, my aunt ended up loosing the baby. That incident further made me realize how useful it would be if I went into the medical field at least to help reduce maternal-infant mortality in rural areas of my country. It was at this point I chose medicine without hesitation.

After rounding up medical school iabroad, I return to Nigeria to practice and see how I could incorporate what I had learnt over the years into our medical system. I realized again that there was a huge gap between the way things were done where I trained and back home. How the prevalence of certain medical illnesses that can be prevented was still on the high side and how people still suffered from these conditions because of lack of information and poor healthcare management. Also I was opportune to work in a resource poor village in Nigeria, where I worked as one of the few Doctors to thousands of less privileged villagers. I encountered several life changing experiences that influenced my career path further, not only as a Medical Doctor, but also as an agent of social change and sustainable development. My stay in this rural community helped me to experience firsthand, the vital role of a robust comprehensive primary healthcare program in the health system of a nation and the unpleasant consequences that could arise from a failed Healthcare system. My passion for global healthcare management was strengthened during this period.

I passionately desire to acquire the skill necessary to stem the steady decline in quality healthcare provision in my country on a global level. I desire to make an impact in Africa, more specifically in my country, Nigeria, a country burdened by the alarming rates of Maternal and Infant Mortality, HIV/AIDS infection, Tuberculosis, Malaria, and several other preventable diseases and equitable high quality Healthcare provision which depends on the separation of healthcare-seeking from fee-for-service, although Health insurance in Nigeria is in its infancy. Despite my passion, I realize that passion is not enough. Knowledge is the principal key through which every challenge or problem is solved when combine with passion. I desire to be equipped with the right skills, necessary to stem the steady decline in quality healthcare provision in my county’s health system development. The master’s in public health management with professional experience in Bedfordshire University when combined with my current work experience in clinical medicine, will further broaden my horizon to prepare me for more challenging assignments in the Health sector in Nigeria and the world at large.

Sequel to the completion of my MSC Public Health Management with Professional Experience in Bedfordshire University, I would be better equipped to contribute my quota in building the public health/Management sector of Nigeria through my work with the Ministry of Health. I am willing to undertake the demanding tasks that this course may entail and I intend to dedicate my time and efforts with the ultimate hope of becoming a Public Health Management professional.





Environment Science

Environmental Chemistry and Pollution


My interest in Environmental Chemistry and Pollution Control dates back to my Childhood and University years. Growing up in the oil-rich region of Nigeria; a region characterized by environment that is not devoid of pollutants; many a time, I stayed aloof to wondered how the rivers flowed with Crude oil and the roofs of so many houses corroded with flare from Refineries and in-complete combustion from Automobiles."Could it be that the Refineries are the cause of the spill?” I mused."Can gas flares and Carbon monoxide from automobiles corrode roofs?" I asked myself.
My inquisitive nature and unquenchable thirst for research piqued my interest to take up Science. In my University years, i endured long hours of practical work in the laboratory and was particularly interested in courses that dealt with environmental issues and their effects on living organisms.
Therefore, as an undergraduate student, I specialized in Biochemistry. A course that ultimately enriched me with a strong desire for scientific research. As part of my final year project, I worked on the effect of extract of Ocimum basilicum on Sodium Arsenite induced hepatotoxicity in Rats. My high analytical aptitude was also put to bear when I worked has a Quality Control Officer. I effectively carried out the physico-chemical analysis of water and other food substances to certify them fit for consumption. Believably, a master’s degree in Environmental Chemistry and Pollution Control would expose me to the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in natural places. Ultimately, I will be able to recover sites from pollutants.
Moreover, not only did I become engrossed in research work, I also actively participated in extra- curricular activities and in the past have successfully balanced my training and career with leisure time and interests in Footballing and Billiards. In my University years, I was the secretary to my department's press organization. I, together with few of my colleagues co-authored and published the first departmental magazine tagged “The Helica".A magazine that is full of amazing discoveries and bio-chemical related issues.
Putting together these valuable and enjoyable experiences, I am fully ready to undertake a career in Environmental Chemistry and Pollution Control. I plan to concentrate on emissions of gases and discharge of waste materials from industries as this would enable me checkmate accidental and reckless discharge of hazardous chemicals in Nigerian industries and I would be able to proffer palliatives for those at the receiving ends. And also, I would ensure that proactive measures are put in place to prevent pollution of the air, water and land back in my home-land.
Subsequently, I believe your reputable institution can provide me the best opportunity to fully utilize my potentials. I am confident that my convincing commitments to Chemistry have placed me in a better position to undertake graduate study in your reputable University.




Petroleum Geosciences


I had interest in petroleum Geosciences when it was first introduced in my 4th year. This is simply because of the procedures involved (from prospecting to exploitation). Consequently, interpreting geophysical data has always been something I look forward to doing as a geoscientist hence; securing admission in your school would help me achieve my dreams since your school has got what it takes.

I remember the first time I held a well log, it was fun delineating some parameters on it and would want to master on this field of geology because of the following reasons: be a better geoscientist in order to enhance oil and gas exploration in my community; to curb youth restiveness in my community and make a better citizen for younger generations to look up to.

In my leisure time, I enjoy watching football (Barclay’s premiership) to be précised because it has a higher tempo. Playing video games and surfing the web are not far from my extra curriculum activities.




Petroleum geology


I want to study my preferred choice of course (petroleum geology / exploration geophysics) because I have acquired the basic training of geology and the search for petroleum therefore require application of many tools, its also a pain taking task that also require contribution from various expertise of geology including my preferred course of study.

If after have been trained or I am a MSc. holder in petroleum geology / exploration geophysics, it will benefit me because I will be among one big happy group of professionals united by the common goal of finding oil and gas in the safest, fastest and most economical manner.

And for me to do well or excel in studying this preferred course above the sound undergraduate skills and knowledge I acquired is a perquisite or forms the foundation in which am going to build on in the sense that if am taught some thing new or advance, I will not find it hard to comprehend because I already have the basic training in geology.

My preferred course of study above will be beneficial to the economy of our Nigeria in the sense that after acquiring my MSc. degree and an employed or become a consultant to ministry of petroleum or any oil producing company (Chevron, NNPC, Total or Exxon Mobil)etc, I have automatically join the exploration team in Nigeria whose common goal is to find, produce (bring out of ground) store and transport oil and gas in the safest fastest and most economical manner hereby increasing the location of more oil and gas deposit and in so doing increasing the exploration / production of more barrels of oil and in-turn increase the economic standard of Nigeria.

These is why I want to study my preferred choice of course (exploration geophysics / petroleum geology).




Environmental Management


As an undergraduate, I experienced life as a biochemist with a lot of attraction to the natural environment and it's uniqueness. I started to educate myself with environmental courses both offline and online, so i discorvered that the natural environment is unique and beautiful but its pristine nature depends on if its properly managed or not. Human anthropogenic activities and other factors are fast degrading the quality of the natural environment. After taking a few online environmental management courses i learnt that if proper environmental management plan are not in place and implemented the ability of the environment to restore its pristine nature would be lost.

I've asked question from experienced environmental experts and I've made researches on some of the causes of environmental degradation such as greenhouse effect of greenhouse gases which leads to global warming, solid waste management and bio gas emission but with little or no experience the implementation of the little solution I try to proffer has not been as effective as i would have expected. In 2016 I joined the society for environmental toxicology and pollution management as a student member which had an e-squad where I volunteered to develope environmental course module for elementary school kids about how to properly manage their environment, I learnt a lot and this propelled me to pursue a postgraduate course in Environmental management which will help me broaden my knowledge and gain professional experience. This will give me a chance to correct the environmental management flaws of my country (oil spillage menace, solid waste management and global warming) and the world at large.

I had my first degree in biochemistry which I graduated with a second class upper (3.85CGPA), I went ahead to educate myself on a few online environmental sustainability lessons and enjoyed every minute of it. I'm certain that if I have the chance to study a master in Environmental management I will be the environmental world changer the world has been waiting to see.




Environmental Health and Safety


My desire to do this course (Environmental Health and Safety) is because I have always shown a rising interest into Environmental Management and safety as it strikes me as a worthwhile and fulfilling career to choose. I am a confident student willing to provide the university with good communication skills, supporting others and being able to interact closely with them. I think that studying a master’s Degree in Environmental Health and Safety would be rewarding and create different pathways for my future.

My career plans are centred in the future of the quality of care, safety in my country. I would like to go into lecturing in other to impact knowledge to my generation concerning Safety. Advancing my career safety would satisfy me, helping others with their needs and seeing them to better environment and safety.

I have come to realise, largely due to the existence of experts who are empowered through their scientific knowledge and legislation to make sure that business comply with very high environmental health standard, thus protecting the public from illness and exposure to harmful materials. I have always wanted to follow a profession that makes use of potential for scientific and technical expertise to help society.

My goal has been to pursue this ambition through working in environmental health.

M.Sc. in Environmental Health in University of Sunderland seems to offer an unparalled level of thoroughness in its approach to this field.

I also believe that the M.Sc. in Environmental Health and Safety will be the perfect opportunity to learn more about these matters before I proceed to a career in this most important professional sector.




Environmental Management


I am applying for a Masters programme in Environmental Management at the University of Bedfordshire; United Kingdom because I am interested in the topics covered particularly Environmental Project Management and Environmental Management and Sustainability. My interest in these areas was first aroused during a meeting with an investor in Oil & Gas (Gulf of Guinea Oil & Gas Company) during which the Honourable Minister insisted on seeing their Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies before giving his consent.

This prompted me to make some research as regards to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies and came to observe that for any developmental project to go accordingly in meeting with environmental limits, EIA studies is essential and as a Mathematician, I can perfectly fit because data interpretation and appropriate use of analytical techniques in analysing environmental issues is needed. Also your course not only covers the above topics but will also introduce me to new areas such as Environmental Biotechnology and Global Environmental Change which will broaden my knowledge and understanding of the course because after completing my masters program, I would like to continue my education and obtain a Ph.D. in Environmental Resource Management. This degree combine with my experience in the industry and in policy formulation will enable me to strike balance in giving proper advice and proffering credible solutions as regards to the environmental issues.

My work placement as an Industrial Officer in Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Nigeria, has avail me the opportunity of inspecting and assessing industries and have come to understand the environmental studies plays a crucial role in determining the impact of a project in an environment both negatively or positively. My main role which centres on the establishment, promotion and monitoring of industries especially industries in the chemical sector through proper feasibility and appraisal studies of such industries before takeoff, and also providing general extension and consultancy services, has exposed me to different environmental fields and the need to be an environmental specialist become paramount. Furthermore, the need for an environmental expert advice in the formulation of policies for government as there are few environmental experts in the country, also propelled me to pursue my MSc Studies in Environmental Management as it will give an edge over my colleagues in the discharge of my duties.

I am very keen in Social Works especially Community Development Services in Rural Areas, though time consuming, it has avail me the opportunity to touch lives positively while managing my limited time and has also broaden and improved my proficiency in teamwork and leadership qualities which has help me in discharging my duties perfectly.

Upon given the option to pursue my post graduate studies in any university of my choice in the world, by the government of my country Nigeria because of my outstanding performance in discharging my duties and in nation building; I made no hesitation to choose United Kingdom and University of Bedfordshire, based on the fact that whatever one wants to do, should be done well and with the right team; and the Department of Life Science, University of Bedfordshire has the right team that will propel me to a greater height in my career ambition. Also your students cutting across different cultures, backgrounds and countries, as this I know will give me the best exposure I need for my study.




Environmental Management


I am greatful for the opportunity given to me to study Environmental Management in Coventry University, UK, which will give me flexibility to shape my education and access to the top thinkers in the field and create good relationship to other students with perspective and experiences from other part of the world.

I have interest in taking M.Sc. in Environmental Management during and my Bachelor degree which enhanced my awareness on environment particularly issues on global warming, catastrophe, geomorphological aspect, climatic changes and ecology, other key areas of my interest is dynamic relationship between human and earth has always captivated my interest. In one of my excursion during my Bachelors, I recall much of these significance which amazes me as powerful forces that affects our society in all aspect.

I feel that this course will satisfy my curiosity about the world around us, and hope it will lead me to a career that aims to find ways to use the world’s resources in a sustainable way.

I have always loved learning new fields of knowledge and I am looking forward to exploring them in more depth at a higher level. I see university as an opportunity to utilise better facilities and expertise, and I understand that I must contribute all I can and rise to all the challenges put to me.

I had a highly dramatic introduction to the importance of environmental management through my involvement in my father’s business. When I was younger his catering company received a visit from an environmental management officer, who identified a series of lapses in the business’s compliance with environmental health legislation. I was present when the potentially devastating health implications of these breaches was made clear and the case for continual vigilance and rigorous safeguards was presented to my father.

It was an experience that completely changed the way I thought about the world around me. It is easy to take health of the public for granted when living in the developed world, as we seldom see the consequences of it on a day-to-day basis unless, of course, you are a specialist in the field. However, the public’s continued wellbeing and safety from environmental health threats is, I have come to realize, largely due to the existence of experts who are empowered through their scientific knowledge and legislation to make sure that businesses comply with very high environmental management standards, thus protecting the public from illness and exposure to harmful materials. I have always wanted to follow a profession that makes use of my potential for scientific and technical expertise to help society, and since that day my goal has been to pursue this ambition through working in environmental management

The MSc in Environmental management at the University of Coventry seems to offer an unparalleled level of thoroughness in its approach to this field. As a discipline environmental management is very much an interdisciplinary field of studies, with environmental management professionals needing both a theoretical and scientific knowledge of health issues and expertise in practical issues of policy implementation and legal matters, amongst others. I believe that the course would be the ideal starting point from which I can then go on to pursue a career as an environmental management practitioner, whether in the public or private sector.

Finally, I believe the M.Sc. in Environmental Management will significantly help my future prospect of working to improve and transform our environment for the better and my ambition of discovering potentials revolutionary, renewable energy for global use for environmental sustainability future in my country.




Petroleum Geosciences


I am an enthusiastic and ambitious individual with a strong commitment to building a successful career as a Geologist with a particular interest in Petroleum Geosciences. In pursuit of my dreams, I was torn between studying sciences or social sciences at secondary school; however, I leaned towards the sciences because I had good grades in science subject. That began my journey of self discovery; I was influenced by my Uncle to study Geology of which I had little interest due to my passion for calculations, thus, wanted to study Computer Engineering and that made my early years as an undergraduate student quit confusing and rocky probably because I was thinking of switching to the course I wanted to study, I later came to understand the beauty of Geology as it was becoming more real making me picture the earth as a giant cake with different color of layers and have since then develop my interest and if were to choose what to study over again Geology would forever be my First choice.

My decision to study at postgraduate level I would say intensified by the courses I have taken as an undergraduate Geology major at MAUTECH. Learning about Geology in general became fascinating after our first field work to study the sedimentary terrain of Yola Arm of Upper Benue trough, what we were taught in class are becoming more real seeing all those structures first hand such as fault, fold, cross bedding, unconformities, riffle marks etc. and fossils and more interestingly all these structures and fossils have their histories which explain the ages and possible area of deposition; just as if we were at a Geology Laboratory. Going further with studies and taking some courses such as Geology of Ore deposit, Mineralogy and Petroleum Geology, my vision toward the rock substance and its possible pore fluid on or below the earth surface changes, suddenly all I could see is a potential raw material. It all adds up when I went for my Industrial Training at Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL) a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC) which provides hydrocarbon exploration services. Where was posted to Reservoir Engineering Services Department and subsequently attached to the Petrophysics section, then I was able to appreciate Petrophysical Evaluation; basically how to calculate the amount of hydrocarbon initially in place (HCIIP) with the sourced parameters using Petrel Software. In Partial fulfillment for the award of B.tech Geology I choose to do my final year seminar on one of the challenging discoveries of oil production termed Hydraulic fracturing; unconventional oil production.

Why Msc. at University of leads?

I see myself working as a professional in an organization to achieve their business goals through tailored solutions. As Nigeria tries to transition from a developing economy into a developed one there is a need to bridge the technology gap. I see myself playing a part in bridging this gap. I first experienced how technological solutions improves business output during my Industrial training at Integrated Data Services Limited as well during my one year National Youth Service Corp at Oriental Energy Resources Nigeria Limited (private oil and gas company), with these cognate experience and enthusiasm I believe an Msc. in this your reputable institution will make me realise my dreams.

As I aspire to be a professional in Petroleum Geosciences, the modules to be undertaken on the course I believe will place me in a unique position and enhance my career prospects by being amongst the pioneers to apply new break-through thinking in oil exploration and production in Nigeria. A lot of what I have learnt as an undergraduate has given the necessary background and foundation in achieving my goals. Courses such Petroleum Geology, Basin Analysis, Subsurface Geology etc. has helped in knowing the basics of hydrocarbon formation (source rock, migration and trap) and oil exploration activities (gravity and magnetic survey, seismic surveys and wireline logs). The fact that the course has been running for a long period of time signifies its importance and its significance in the ever changing business and technological world, similarly, the vast experience and expertise accumulated over the years from guest lecturers, support staffs, students, and other collaborators can only underline what a privilege and an opportunity this will be to be a part of such a success story.

My intention is to be one of the new generation of Nigerians to bridge the technology gap and possibly to contribute the new innovation of oil exploration in the world. The opportunity to work with outstanding individuals and leaders at the cutting edge of their respective disciplines from engineering, science, business studies and finance is incredibly attractive and something I want to take advantage of, as I have the experience of the importance of technology and business to each other as well as allow me to develop lifelong contacts that would help me stay on top of developments in the rapidly changing landscape of technology and business.




Environment health and safety Engineering


I always believe in the famous Malcolm X that says: “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”. So, for the strong believe that choosing an excellent educational institution like University of Salford could make me prepare today, so that I can have an excellent passport to show in the future.

.

Choosing a conducive learning environment that consists of intellectuals and academics that are ready to compete in the Global academic environment is the most important aspect one’s educational carrier, which I believe I have found it in the University of Salford.

Being an Agricultural and Environmental resources engineer from a Nigerian University, I believe studying in the UK and University of Salford in particular has a lot of opportunities to offer. I can lament with the believe that my transcript of academic records doesn’t actually reflect my full potentials in spite of the fact that I was among the best student in my class, but as the standard of education in the UK is believed to be higher than in Nigeria nonetheless, I still believe I can attain my full potentials at the University of Salford. Having research through the school of engineering, I think diversifying my knowledge by studying Environment health and safety Engineering will go along way in enhancing and broadening my knowledge in my field of study and also improve on my career opportunities, which are to work for Oil & Gas industry company where my inputs will be held in high regards.

I have chosen this institution because I believe in the excellence of its cosmopolitan nature and its great service delivery. I am also looking forward to broadening and sharpening my thoughts and experiences by meeting people from different spheres of life and parts of the world by interacting both academically and socially.

In conclusion, it will be a great honor if am given the opportuned chance to study at this unique and respectful institution of world recognition




Environmental Management.


As a young person with so many aspirations in life to explore, i have developed a keen interest in the sciences. The desire to be an addition to the global world, as it affect human and nature led my first choice of career path in the Agricultural sciences as an undergraduate student in my own country Nigeria. The five years of studying Agricultural Science both in theory and practical further broaden and developed my knowledge in the natural sciences. In course of the study i did an Industrial Training where i was able to cultivate mushroom plant, fishery and poultry farming from start to finish. Two years after graduating from the Department of Agricultural, Economics & Extension in University of Port Harcourt Rivers State Nigeria, i rendered my youthful service to the Federal Republic of Nigeria according to ‘’The National Youth Service Corps Act Cap N84 LFN 2004’’. During the service to the nation i worked in a Local Government Development Centre in Agricultural Department where i was able to impact the acquired knowledge and demonstrate skills in more practical terms.

Based on the interesting knowledge acquired in Agricultural science field, my passion in the natural sciences increased the more. My career aspirations in science made me chose a related and interesting discipline; Environmental Management. I decided to choose a career path with Coventry University to be part of the United Kingdom teaching and study methodology geared towards creativity, developing of skills, confidence and lot more. I had the opportunity to be taught by some world’s leading academics ad experts in specialised modules tailored to my interest as a postgraduate student. My participation in Global Leadership Programme and departmental tours in Coventry University made study more interesting and adventurous for me as a scientist craving for new opportunities to explore. The Global Leadership Programme increased my level of exposure in terms of interacting, relating, brainstorming and sharing of ideas with students from other nationalities outside the European Union. The experience of studying and working in the UK strengthened and facilitated my level of reasoning and also my perception on work ethics of Time Management, Health, Safety and Environment.

In 2015 i got an appointment with a construction company known as kakatar’ce ltd in Nigeria to work as an Assistant Store Superintendent. My role in the company is to ensure that products and materials received and signed meets specification. I also give a pep talk on Health, Safety and Environment before the field work. Am returning to the UK the second time for an MBA in Greenwich University to explore for more accessible opportunities, the UK standard of Education has made available for international students. And to add my own quota of knowledge acquired over the years.




Energy and Sustainable Development


I am writing this letter to express my interest in your prestigious University, seeking an admission for a graduate programme in Energy and Sustainable Development.

I have been aspiring to be a part of the department since I became aware that it provides the best theoretical and Hands-on skills on education, and an enabling environment for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

My reason for pursuing a degree in Energy and Sustainable Development in your university is because I aspire to specialize in environmental protection and clean-up, which happens to be one of the environmental challenges we face in my country (Nigeria).

On leaving high school, I decided to take a gap year to give myself time to refocus and reassess what I wanted to do. I studied Biochemistry as my first degree at Anambra State University, where I studied the effects of foods, drugs, allergens and other substances on living tissues; research molecular biology, also study life at the molecular level and study of genes and gene expression. Being a Biochemist also opportune me to study chemical reactions in metabolism, growth, reproduction, and heredity, and apply techniques drawn.

Upon graduation after my bachelor’s degree, I proceeded for my National Youth Service, where I worked at National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, which is a federal agency under the Federal Ministry of Health that is responsible for regulating and controlling the manufacture, importation, exportation, advertisement, distribution, sale and use of food, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, chemicals and packaged water in Nigeria. I worked in this agency as a Consultant and Supervisor in charge of Food and Drug department, ensuring proper certification and investigation are carried out by companies producing food and drugs in Nigeria for the consumers.

One of the biggest aspects of my life has been my involvement in football game. For the six years I was there, I represented my school in the football game competitions as one of the senior members. I was often handed the responsibility of teaching our new trainees. Another aspect of my life that I also enjoyed doing is singing, it a passion that I developed while in my secondary school days. As a result of my enthusiasm for music, I have also had the privilege of composing songs and handling leadership positions such as an assistant choir director to a choir director. Also, another one of my hobbies aside football game and singing is reading. I recently finished a book titled “Talent Power” by George Praise. It is an exposé on the hidden skills and potentials in a man.

I believe I have the intellectual ability to complete a master’s degree and I have illustrated my drive, ambition and dedication to do this in many ways. I can work as a part of a team as I have developed the initiative and ability to follow instructions and have the capacity of working with others. I have good group leadership skills which I want to turn into excellent and distinctive leadership skills through a master’s program. I came from a home that stress so much on education and that has always been a strong motivating factor for me to be more dedicated and committed to undertaking and completing a master’s degree.

I will work hard to achieve these goals not just for my sake, but for the sake of my intended future clients and the safety of my community environment, also if given the opportunity I would offer the acquired knowledge and skill to your institution.

I will be glad if this application is duly considered and I am given the opportunity to realize my dreams of getting excellent world class tutelage from your institution.




Environmental Management


Education unarguably is a hub that filter personalities from the pool of society crowd. It is good to qualify it being ‘unending lengthwise and breadthwise’ which is why lovers of education continue the quest to its rooted tentacles.

Being a lover of education I deem it extremely necessary and always pray to attain all levels through standard world class system of education despite the fact that sufficient resources is the sacrifice to attain such.

I have decided to pursue my career by taking a masters degree in Environmental Management as I am concerned about my country Nigeria and the world at large. Every specie on earth including humans have a deep connection with the environment therefore environmental issues are issues that should not be taken for granted.

I wish to channel my energy, ability and curiosity into the Master of Science program at the University of Bedfordshire, United Kingdom as I strongly believe I will be equipped with the necessary training needed.

Upon completion of my program, I would like to begin my career as an environmental planner/consultant, providing environmental analysis that aids in the promotion of more environmental sustainable practices in my country Nigeria.This is my passion and I am not ready to let it suffer nor quench.

Having stated raw and brief my passion for further development studies,, It is my belief that what your university looks for in a prospective student is a strong academic background and the will to perform and deliver. I hereby do solemnly declare and promise to maintain the good will and conduct I am quite known for.

I therefore look forward to joining your university as a postgraduate student at the esteemed department of Environmental Management.

Information System Management


why I want to study my preferred choice of Course, how it will benefit my future career ,how i think my undergraduate skills will help me adapt very well and how it could be beneficial to the economy of our country Nigeria?

Ever since I was a kid, I have always been fascinated by my computer studies in affiliation with communication/information management services, and having a flare for this subject prompted me to obtain a degree in Mathematics and computer science from the University of Port Harcourt Nigeria. It is a pivotal subject on which others greatly depend on. However, the accumulating comprehension of attractive interconnected principles is another source of attraction I have for this field of study. I believe this justifies the study of Advance Computer Science/ Information Management for its own sake without considering its countless application.

My propensity for mathematics is derived from its systematic, yet far from simplistic nature. Problems must in fact be solved using logics and our intellect which is our supreme faculty to device scientific experimental procedures and to interpret effectively the significance of such findings. Solutions can never be procured through customary memorization of facts and definitions associated with this field i put forward to obtain. There is a distinct order to all things connected to information management and computing analysis and this raise my passion to explore this great field of creativity and further seek to understand Basic Principles behind its operation parameters then use such Knowledge acquired for communication development and further, facilitating technological integration in my father land Nigeria




Business Computing


I would like to have a degree in Business computing this is because I have a registered company Illuminati Ventures, with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria which I registered in 2003, (see attached my Certificate of Registration) Since registering my business, I have been engaged in website design and now have over 40 clients which include my state government, individuals and organizations. You may see my portfolio by visiting this page on one of my websites www.nigeriaglobalpromo.net/webdesign.htm I also consult for several people on internet marketing, social media as well as training. You may visit my websites www.internetbusinessacademy-ng.com and www.onlineeducationalportal.com However, I do not have a relevant degree even though I have the necessary experience in website design and entrepreneurship. I want to have a degree to advance my career and business. Also the second reason I want to obtain a degree from the from the UK is that I dropped out of Medical School to go into business and computing (see attached my letter of admission to study Medicine at University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1995 and my transcript from my first year). I dropped out of Medical school in 2000, partly because of the war that ravaged my city Warri in 2000 during the Itsekiri – Ijaw war and because of that I could not continue my education. (It was after the incident I developed an interest in computing and business in 2002). Now my community is interested in sponsoring some of us that were directly affected by the war, to go back to school. (Please find attached the letter from my community asking me to submit a letter of admission) Even though I could have gone to the UK to study physically, I would prefer an online degree so I could work on building my business and at the same time obtain a degree from the UK

LETTER STATING WHY I WANT TO STUDY INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY.

It is with enthusiasm that I write this letter stating below why I want to study Information technology.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (IT) helps in the advancement of human labor and system management, in order to achieve desired outcome.it is a crucial part of any organization and technology is a catalyst. These desired outcomes involve high performance aligned with organizational goals. It involves career and development opportunities.

All organizations require technological input to make the goods or provide the services they are set up to make or provide. Therefore, an understanding of how to effectively manage system in the workplace is of great importance and value, coupled with the changing nature of the world of technology, hence, my reason to study information technology.

Information technology becomes beneficial especially in area such as: system management and information’s catalog, training and development of people, productivity and regulations, managing employee performance, managing conflict in the workplace and employee representation and involvement in their workplaces further captures my interest.

Furthermore, information technology makes work easier in the modern day business world, thereby making information technology an essential knowledge to acquire. system Management analyses the employment relationship and controlling of resources in the workplace. It explores these issues not only in the context of the individual employee and their employer, but in the context of the wider workplace, the labor market and economic forces shaping the world of work, technological changes, employment regulations and social trends.

The world of labor is fast changing so an understanding of how this all affects the system in the workplace is of tremendous significance theoretically and practically to me.




Computer Security and Forensics


From childhood, I’ve always been fascinated with electronics and computer systems. I taught myself typing at the age of 13, undertook a study in Microsoft office at the age of 16, and assembled my first desktop computer at the age of 17. This motivation drew me to study my bachelors’ degree in Information and Communication Technology at Modibbo Adama University of Technology. While taking the degree course, I became interested in systems networking and security, and took several courses related to this field during my five years in the university.

In my fourth year during my industrial attachment, I worked as a network and system maintenance technician, where I carried out systems repair and networking. I equally took advantage of that period and learned the basics of JAVA programming. After graduation from university, I was again fortunate to work as the systems maintenance technician in the IT laboratory of Mary Hills High School (under NYSC scheme), where I carryout hardware repairs and maintenance as well as teach the students. I am currently studying Computer Security and Forensics (MSc), which I am looking forward to graduate soon.

I wish to undertake another Masters in this field because I want to learn about Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems at a detailed level, so that I may one day be able to design and implement any kind of wireless communication and intelligent systems that are efficient and efficient in performance. I am currently undertaking independent study to further this goal.

Computer science and software engineering


Employers often look for individuals with experience and I could not help but wonder how I would get this experience as a student. On pursuit of growing my knowledge in computer science and software engineering I discovered that a way to gain significant experience is through placement. Applying to study an MSc in Advanced Computer Science with Sandwich Placement is one of the best decisions I have made while pursing my career as a software engineer. The reason being that I would not only be enhancing my knowledge but I would also be gaining the necessary experience in this subject area through the placement year.

Having studied Computer science and software engineering at undergraduate level I have gained a general knowledge of software development methodologies and programming languages which I believe has given me confidence in this subject area.

I have also built a passion for this course and programming. As such I get myself involved in Hackathons and societies such as BEAMS and BCS. I have also been involved in a hackathon where I worked in a team to develop an app to help solve a real-life problem by TUI (Thomson) travel company of which I and my team were awarded the best technical development for the competition which lasted for two days.

At university, I became a PAL (Peer Assisted Learning) leader where I had to share my experience with the first-year students studying my course. I most cases I would explain and share my knowledge of some JAVA or C# programs with these students in order to help make it an easy start in programming.

Out of the many universities, the most important reason why I chose the University of Hertfordshire is because of the way in which the modules for this course is laid out and the learning outcomes that come with the course and modules. The placement year offered at University of Hertfordshire is another thing that cut my attention as this is a very rare thing to find in other universities that offer similar courses.

On completing this course, I expect to have enhanced my software development and project management skills in such a way that will set me aside from my peers and colleagues. I will then set out to work for five years to further grow my knowledge and experience in this field before setting up my dream company in Nigeria for IT Consulting and research on technology that can help improve the country and the rest of Africa.

I am fascinated with the numerous tasks which computers helps to achieve in short period of time. Computer scientist role is essential in every organisation which enhance the career prospects. I use different platforms such IT related websites and news to remain updated about the advancement in computer technology and innovation. In my opinion, computers are one the greatest inventions that’s helps to accelerate rate of development and growth in the world through rapidly evolving innovations it encompassed. It is an undeniable fact that in future most activities perform by human will rely on computer which will provide more employment opportunity in the sectors.

Wisconsin International University put me in the vanguard of the computer revolution, where I still stand. My desire for computer science led me to write final undergraduate project on Hospital Management system that involves creating a website which will help healthcare system faster in their operations. Web design was one of my favourite course where I learnt how to use Notepad++ and Adobe Dreamweaver to create website These rigorously quantitative courses has given me a computer science platform needed thrive on MSc in computer science. The knowledge that will be acquired from these MSc in computer science will increase my employable skills and put me in front of company when promotions are been distributed considering both knowledge and qualifications. System Modelling will provide with a skill which enable me discover systems error early that will reduce the chance of the system having defects. Without absolute understanding of a computer architecture there is no way I can be able to structure a program that is why it is essential to study the course, so machines can run more efficiently. Operating Systems and Networks are parts the course I study in my undergraduate, so I will be interested to find how it could be operated and connected with advanced in technology.

The intellectual achievement of the combination of Master in business Administration and MSc in computer science will be outstanding. Strategic Decision-making skills and marketing management in MBA also will be all essential to attain my career goal as IT consultant. Digital marketing involves using digital technology to promote a business that includes, internet websites, and phones. For instance, with the skill set acquired from these two programmes, I alone will create the websites and manage the business process and ensures sustainability. I worked as system support engineer at broadcasting corporation involved in repairs of computer parts and cabling and networking systems. Which improved my punctuality and awareness to computer hardware and software functions. To your campus I can add the strategic skill of a footballer ant the cerebral acuity of a table tennis player. Thank you.




Computer Engineering


The quest to build on skills learnt and contribute to the development of my country’s human capital through quality research and teaching led me to apply for the graduate program. My undergraduate education has prepared me for graduate school through the development of various principles in Computer Engineering for design, implementation and operations of projects. The undergraduate curriculum in Computer Engineering introduced me to a wide variety of engineering subjects. Various courses like Artificial Intelligence (Robotics), Programming Languages, Electronics I&II, Software Engineering, Micro Processor and Digital Computers, Automata and microprogramming, and others alongside my final year project (Design and Construction of Automatic School Bell System Using Aduino), provided me with a strong footing in the theoretical and practical concept of Computer Engineering. This offered both depth and insight across this field. The courses offered put into perspective the importance and relevance of Computer Engineering and the application of its fundamentals to the problems faced by the real world. Besides involvement in academics, my work experience as a business analyst also involves acquiring data, designing business process models, and writing business requirement documents which have taught me the value of team work, alongside working with private and national organizations has taught me tremendously that leadership is not doing everything by you, rather assembling the right team, influencing and motivating the team for peak performance. My leadership experience at different levels and social skills, refined through my service to associations, schools, sports, Girls’ Brigade and sub-groups activities have trained me to unearth creative solutions to challenges, organize my experiences in the community for the purposes of both engagement and reflection, and socially navigate among diverse personalities and power differences. These traits will allow me to succeed in diverse situations while studying abroad. My goal is a career in Computer Engineering/academic research wherein I could apply the principles, methods, and modern tools for the design and implementation of computer systems. To achieve my career goals, I need to learn more about current developments, techniques and acquire hands-on experience in computing. A Master’s Degree in United Kingdom will provide me with theoretical understanding as well as an in-depth idea of practical approaches in proffering innovative technological solutions and research skills to enable me to develop an expertise in the core areas of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering which will equip me with innovation knowledge and skills to play a leading part in future research, development and application of these modern technologies in creating a revolution in business and personal lives of individuals. Research Excellence Framework record shows that University of Cranfield was ranked one of the top in the UK universities. With this consistent reputation and ranking, a successful Master's degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Cranfield, will meet my aspiration of being equipped with innovative knowledge and skills to play a leading part in future research, development and application of these modern technologies in creating a revolution in business and personal lives.

Data Science


Data Analysis has become one of the most sort out courses in recent times and this is evidently due to the fact that it does not only transform societies and revolutionize contemporary lives, but also gives practical evidence and background for decision making in all sectors. For instance, the decision of reaching out to a community for infrastructure needs will depend highly on “big data”. Also, global businesses tend to improve customer behaviours and working efficiency by analysing big data. As a Nigerian, I am well known to the fact that there are bottle necks as regards data manufacturing and analysis, hence, resulting in not so good policy decisions being made. These entire trends come to play in my resolution to pursue course on Data Science and Analytics at a master’s level.

As a Community Affairs Coordinator with Amaiden Energy Nigeria Limited, a contracting service to Exxon Mobil, my major tasks is to manage and oversee community outreach strategies and deliverables, project estimation, planning, scheduling, reporting and coordination, and manage strategic relationships with key community and corporate stakeholders. Throwing more light on this, some of the projects I have undertaken depend greatly on data, system integration, which is the analysis of how components, stakeholders and processes intertwine in achieving a defined function. My achievements pertaining this are: developing a database for NPO projects with five years plan on Scope, budget, community impact, potential issues, employment needs, training needs, contracting, community assistant projects (CAPs), database of endorsed Public Affairs plans (Gate 2 & 3), and database of endorsed Community Relations plans, project analysis and Development of effective strategies to support business goals, enhance corporate reputation and sustain license to operate.

Based on my excellent academic performance in my under graduate level as a first class student in Computer Science from Middlesex University, United Kingdom, I am confident in my ability to combine both my academic background and work experience to attained my career goal of being a Data Analyst and creating a more effective society and nation. It is no doubt that data analysis is an integral part of financial and business management sectors to help managers drive productivity and achieve organisational efficiency as well as goals, government and non-government actors in health care delivery, security, education, to mention but a few other aspects of policy making.

I am interested in studying this course at the University of Nottingham. This is because it has emerged as a good option due to its renowned academic department delivering practical focused data analytic course that is highly flexible and offer opportunity to develop a range of valuable skill sets. It also brings to the table an opportunity to be taught by experts from different academic units. Apart from the academic advantage, the university is located in one of my most desired cities in the United Kingdom.

I am an organized, hardworking, goal oriented and zealous person with excellent communication and analytical skills. On a personal note, I have a calm disposition, very supportive mindset and love new challenges. This entire attribute coupled with my qualifications will help me bring out the best in undergoing this course. I enjoy swimming, travelling, exploring new technology with keen interest in innovative prototypes using balsamiq software to create web and mobile app designs for Individuals and organisations.I also love volunteering for community development activities.

To conclude this, one major outcome I look forward to at the end of this course is practically developing strategies for digital technology revolution including effective business solution systems and good governance. I am constantly motivated to work hard, improve my skills and achieve my career goal which will be accomplished by a successful completion of a masters’ degree programme in Data Science at the University of Nottingham.





Art

Film Production -PhD


Nigerian film industry has come to become a great phenomenon across the globe. Love it or loathe it, the fact that the world has woken up to the ‘popular art’ that is spreading fast like a burning fire during the harmattan season is a fact that can’t be ignored.

This is not to say that the Nollywood is experiencing its best positioning in the areas of quality production, fantastic plot, great technical input and structured marketing/distribution channels. As an emerging media, the sector will need three categories of experts to grow- the filmmakers, the film critics and the film Theorist/Researchers.

I fall in the last category, and believe that I owe the budding filmmakers, enthusiastic film auteurs, unwilling Investors and International community the obligation of researching into how viewers receive, negotiate and interpret film content/intent for optimum gratification.

This is the expression my interest to undergo a PhD programme in film studies, primarily focusing on “Audience Reception, Negotiation and Interpretation of Paranormal Depiction in Nollywood videofilms, a comparative analysis of selected Nigerian Audience in United Kingdom and Nigeria.”

As a film teacher of more than a decade, I strongly believe that many questions still need to be answered on the empirical proof of supernatural themes in Nigerian videofilms and how Nigerians at home and in diaspora accept the image that our movies project.


More questions to be asked include: what are the nexus of connection between the movie intent and the audience interpretation of paranormal intents? How does the cognitive elements of the audience influence the reception and interpretation of the movies? Where does the African stereotypes in movies reflect the mirror model? How do these movies reinforce the cultural memory and national identity? What are the roles of George Garbner's Cultivation theory and Albert Bandura's Social learning theory in audience post reception evaluation? Etc.

I am employing ethnographic research method, and it is in my opinion that this research would help to redirect the energy of Nigerian 'Citizen Cinema' towards audience- oriented plots, and social development. .




Philosophy


I wish to apply for a master’s degree program in Philosophy in your prestigious and highly respected University which will give my chance to broaden my knowledge and grow professionally and in turn contribute to the development of humanity, strengthen the values of human rights and fundamental freedom, and promote peace in the world by contributing to the development of democracy in my native country, Nigeria. As a person who simply enjoys learning, pursuing an advanced degree is an inevitable step for my budding career. I feel that this is a course that will not only point me to the right direction, but one that is also intellectually satisfying, and will further expose me to the subject that has always fascinated me.

I have a cogent research interest in socio-political philosophy. In an evolving democratic state like Nigeria where socio-political crisis, ethnic problems, crave for good governance, religious and cultural issues are the bane of socio-political development, there is the need to sustain the values, principles and practices of a democratic culture through an educational framework that will aid in exposing the learners to the wonderful activity of deep reflection; a reflection which only philosophy can provide. It is these reflections that inspire specific values and principles that trigger the creation of way of life. It is also on the basis of these values and principles that democracy is understood as a political system that adds ethical elements to the way of life.

It is a known fact that the well-being of people depends on a solution of political and social problems. As people that aspire to attain or achieve self-determination, the basic requirement towards this attainment is careful and rational reflection on social and political values. This indeed provides the tonic for social justice and so become the imperative that informs the purposes and practices of education as it relates to administration and management.

I strongly believe that your country, is a country with a perfect system of human rights protection and solutions of social, political, ethnic problems, that is why I long to take part in your educational establishment together with progressive international youth. I aim to join in researching and developing of projects together with the best world academics, journalists, activists, officials and leaders in human rights protection, to solve global problems of mankind as well as challenges of my community. Studying in your University will also afford me the opportunity to explore the long term experience of democracy building, gain knowledge and skills in the field of Philosophy and leadership, which can be used for creating better instruments for protection of the individual and the promotion of democracy. Moreover, taking part in master’s degree program in philosophy is a perfect chance to develop both my personal and professional experience by interacting with top students and leaders of other nationalities, discovering new culture and traditions.

I graduated from the University of Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria in 2010 and hold a B.A degree in Philosophy. The four years undergraduate program in Philosophy formed the basis of my perseverance towards achieving an in-depth knowledge in the field of Philosophy. During my bachelor studies, I underwent the experience of developing a research, titled “Plato’s System of Education and Nigerian Leadership: A Prescriptive Analysis” which attracted recommendation from my lecturers. Upon this acknowledgement of my work, I would like to carry on my penchant for master’s degree program in Philosophy.

Besides academics, I was actively involved in extra-curricular activities. I served as a member of NAPS (National Association of Philosophy Student) where we helped students increase their intellectual capabilities, through academic lectures and seminars. In 2011, I served as the president of PET (Peer Educator Trainers), we equipped youth with needed skills to provide information and referral services to their peers on HIV & AIDS issues, developed life building skills of adolescents and young people to help them deal with challenges of growing up, carried out HIV & AIDS campaign rallies. The driving force behind all these was my desire to develop all the facets of my personality.

I worked as a teacher in Lourdes Academy High, Ekorinim II, Cross River State, Nigeria for three years. My job has helped me develop a hunger to return to the academic world for further growth. It has given me the confidence to pursue a master’s degree in Philosophy and also kindled a desire for more research work. This career with open prospects has given me constant incentives for self-improvement and acquisition of knowledge. Today I perceive that life for me had been a process of conscious evolution. An integral part of this growth has been the value system imbibed in me by my parents, lecturers, mentors and an immense liking for Philosophy. As I embark upon a new stage of my life, I believe that a postgraduate study will provide a milestone in my career along with invaluable experiences; these will help me accomplish my goals as a successful and innovative professional. Ten years from now, I envisage myself as a full-fledged research professional and a faculty member at my University.

I am presently a Graduate Assistant in the Department of Philosophy at the Federal University Lafia, Nigeria. I am optimistic about the opportunity of studying at your University. I am positive that I will meet your requirements and promise to maintain the high standards at your University.




DIGITAL Film Production


A famous quote by Collin Powell, a quote I strongly agree with and have been my philosophy. Growing up, I have always had an immense enthusiasm for creativity. “Following One’s course until successful” (FOCUS) has always been like an anthem, a path that I have chosen for myself to become the very best I can be in achieving my set goals.

Having my first degree in Mass communication in one of the Prestigious Universities in my Country, is what I term as a “Starting point” for me. In theory, I can gladly say I have been equipped with the basics of media communication. My intense love for the media and its creativity grew as I participated in some social activities in couple of Christian social societies I was a member of in my years as an undergraduate. I starred in some short films and I also got to learn basic techniques of editing and production. I was given a chance to write my own film script during my placement in one of the Network centres of the Nigerian Television Authority, a renowned national TV station in my country.

At this juncture, I realized that film is indeed the suitable medium, a “Vehicle” to express ones ideologies, philosophies which can evoke emotions, thoughts and fear. This medium of communication is the path which I have chosen to successfully convey my opinion, messages to the people creatively without any form of distortion. I have realized through careful observations that many people of today, have this notion and age-long negative philosophy which includes: living in fear and disbelieve in themselves so they tend to give up without a single thought of giving themselves a second chance of trying. The message of salvation can be conveyed to the people through my production. There are lots to tell the people and I believe that through this means, my message can be aired and such negativities can be corrected. To achieve this, it takes me being focused, determined as well as being consistent.

My quest to be equipped with both creative and technical skills in DIGITAL Film Production, led me to my search for a UK university that offers Film productions at the Master’s level. In the course of my research, I came across University of Bedfordshire and fell in love with what it has to offer which is what I need. I believe that practical learning in a much conducive environment aids success. In Practice, I accept that this is the best school for me to have an in-depth knowledge of Digital film Production and its techniques as well as creative aspects of scripting and I can never be wrong on this one. I choose University of Bedfordshire because it is one of the most outstanding Universities in terms of quality level of teaching. Ranked No.1 for improving the student experience in the UK, It also has one of the most generous scholarship programmes in the UK as well as its friendly environment.

I am most proud of my achievements so far and what I stand to achieve at the University. I am a hardworking, Independent and great at working as a team and I believe I will learn a lot so that when I get back to my country Nigeria, I will make use of every knowledge gained in order to achieve my quest to also contribute in the success of the Nigerian film industry. Also, I will use this to change the “Not-so-changing” story line termed as a “Cliché” in the Nollywood, Nigerian film industry by spicing it up to make it not just catchy but affirmatively, soul-winning. I see a Nollywood, a film industry that can and will soon compete with Hollywood to be among the top world best film industry.

Studying in the UK has been one of my major dream. I have always wanted to obtain a degree from a UK university as such is given high recognition all over the world. In making this choice University of Bedfordshire was my choice because after comparing other institutions who offer the same course, I was convinced that this University would be better. I am very certain that at the end of my program, I would be very proud to have graduated from this great institution.




Journalism


The media's the most powerful entity on earth. An interesting quote from
Malcolm X, who also claimed, Without education, you're not going anywhere in
this world. I am making this statement as I am fascinated by the vast scope which is covered by the
subject and how in today's society the media plays a major role in every subject and affects everybody's life in some way.

Being a broadcast journalist has always been my huge dream, my pride. In my opinion, it is the best kind of journalism one can practice as it regards dissemination of information via electronic media: television and radio. Growing up, I became so enchanted with the way news is disseminated to the audience via these electronic media that I started recording interviews with my little Recorder at a young age. My admiration for broadcasting actually made me interested in knowing how news is gathered, edited, reported. Watching and listening to them on air has given me great inspiration and motivation. It has also taught me confidence and I started noticing my love for 'in-depth' research which has indeed helped me in having ideas about almost everything.

This undying love made me choose a related course in my degree level back in 2008 at the University. I got the orientation as a then amateur in mass communication. My Industrial training at the Kano State Radio Corporation helped me a lot in gaining some knowledge and exploring my talents in the world of Sports, Football to be precise, where I researched the latest fixtures, score lines, aired it live on Radio within few minutes for Sports-loving audience to listen. Apart from that, I researched and wrote Commentaries about selected international celebrities to also be aired.

I am well organised and can work effectively under pressure. With my love for research, I believe I can create a very positive impact in the broadcast industry. I therefore believe that your world class masters degree in Broadcast journalism will be a massive springboard that will help lunch me into my desired career in journalism.




International Relations


My decision to study International Relations combined with French at a higher level is not strange. I have a genuine interest in foreign affairs and International duties. I have a clear vision, that of representing my country and contributing positively to its development at home and globally. Representing… my class and school has been in me right from primary school. I also demonstrated this at my college level, I was Assistant Head girl 2015/16 academic year, have received prizes for coming top of class severally, I am the president of the school debate club, featuring internally and externally and won prizes. Was the vice president of JET club, I represent the school in the media arena. I have also distinguished myself in the field of sports. I won a trophies.. a gold medal in basketball, bronze in handball and 2 bronze medals in Javelin and 400m respectively, a trophy in golf tournament during holiday at the IBB golf tournament country club. I have a certificate in a leadership programme. I also got an award for attending a commonwealth of Nations Symposium. I want to take this further and this course covers topics that I have an unrelenting passion for, and it extends beyond an academic aspect. My desire to attain higher public office or serve internationally has made me develop an interest in a foreign language. (French) I have a certificate in DELF- a French programme (Azuringua) in Nice, France.

Apart from numerous extra curriculum activities, (which can be seen in the letter of recommendation) I have read widely and have a novelette published, poems, short stories, on the famous social media writing App called WATTPAD, where I have constructive comments from other writers. I have a powerful and clear voice, have a great communication and written skills and want to attend a renowned university that will equip me for my desired future role in my community and globally. The study of international relations requires the ability to research and analyse information from a variety of sources I believe my skills in reading, writing and researching will be essential.

I take my responsibilities very seriously both academic and social. I take pride and joy in helping junior students with their problems in their academic works. I also find time to reach out to the less privileged members of the society, this has been demonstrated in my club’s (under my leadership) participation in charity-giving to the orphanage homes time and time again.

With a degree in international relations and a foreign language, this covers issues like human rights, environmental, political, military etc. I would love to pursue a career in the foreign services, being able to work with government organisations such as the foreign and commonwealth office, a government office responsible for protecting and promoting its national interests world- wide.

I choose University of Coventry for its renowned excellence, and believe it would shape and equip me to become a better professional in my chosen career.




Communications (media and technology)


Communication is as old as human existence hence, It has played a very significant role as far as the co-existence of human beings is concerned thus, I have the burning desire to gain more knowledge in it via this program so as to disseminate, transmit, manage and secure information for effective communication. Combining related areas such as the media, culture, internet and technology will automatically make me fit to stand out professionally.

I have worked in the studio department in 2005 at the XXXXXXXXXXXX while indulging in Industrial Training (IT). I have also taught English Language in the senior secondary in 2008 while carrying out the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). I had being involved in Marketing, Public Relations, Media/tourism as well as Managerial activities as a Corporate Affairs Manager at XXXXXXX Travels and Tours

At the end of my career, I want to be recognized as someone who made a positive impact in the lives of the people and in organizations that I will be associated with. I know I will work hard to get this recognition, and I am willing to put forth the necessary effort. I intend to approach everything I do with a positive attitude, lots of enthusiasm, and a desire to make the different. I know that your institution will prepare me to achieve these objectives couple with fact that I will continue to learn new skills as I progress.

I am majoring on Communications (media and technology) and upon graduation, I will find a job where I can learn as much as possible because I want to be exposed to a broad range of media and technology. I want to build a strong base of knowledge and experience. I also want to gain some specialized knowledge in this area to be able to contribute meaningfully.

I would like to end my professional career as a CEO of a large, well-known corporation. I would get enjoyment out of knowing that I contributed immensely to the lives of everyone in my company, community and my country, making a lasting impression on each.




Conflict and Resolution


Having completed my undergraduate program in Intelligence and Security Studies, an inclination to the field of diplomacy and security in respect to the protection and promotion of the national interest of my country and the propagation of a more secured and proactive Nigeria has only peaked. Resultantly I have chosen to further my understanding in this field and I strongly believe your institute is the perfect ground for me to further achieve these said objectives and ultimately establish a vibrant career.

Enrolling to the Intelligence and Security Studies program in Afe Babalola University here in Nigeria went a long way in putting things into perspective and reprioritizing what really matters. Coming from a country with more than a decade of failed democratic leadership, excessive corruption in every level of government, the infamous Boko Haram insurgency coupled with the recent Biafra agitations has left the country in of chaos on numerous levels. The ripple effects of these depressing factors simply put have been suicidal to the nation itself. The rate of armed conflicts and terrorism which directly births a system of fear, instability and insecurity and ultimately stagnation in economic as well as social development is simply on an upward trajectory. My strong desire is to contribute to a stable, decisive and patriotic national policy regime that directly instigates meaningful growth in securing the lives and properties of the Nigerian population and ultimately bringing about a better standard of living. I genuinely believe I can make a difference and contribute to positive change in the country I have long planned for an opportunity and career in the security field, and with so much anarchy, conflict and terrorism even in the global scene, there has never been a better time to further delve into security management and conflict analysis and actually make a difference. The need for more security and social awareness simply cannot be ignored. In the post-world war II era conflicts in the international system has been aligned with the changing dynamic of non-state actors becoming serious threats, rather than the conventional inter-state conflicts. Consequently the Boko Haram insurgency which has single handily brought about a serious economic, infrastructural, health and not to the least food crisis in the north-east region of Nigeria has to be underlined. A threat such as this has to be studied critically with rapid proactive measures put in place to stop and deter future recurrent composite elements which led to the emergence of such a group.

Getting the admission in your prestigious institution to further my studies and attain my academic goals which will serve as a critical path aligned to help me attain my professional goals which primarily is to enrol as an analyst in the Nigerian Ministry of defence and ultimately be part of the changing tide towards a more robust national security system. I strongly believe I have the intellect and skills necessary to succeed in the program. Thank you for your consideration.




International Relations


As the world becomes more intimately connected and inter-dependant because of globalisation, a solid grounding in the discipline of international relations is vital for anyone who wants to look behind the headlines and explore the key players in world politics. I have been ambitious in studying International Studies in the UK since when I graduated from my first degree. I have been fascinated by the constantly changing world that we live in, wanting to understand and exploring the causes and effects of current and future human interactions. The course will give me concrete intelligence in all matters as it deals with issues like sovereignty, environmentalism, development and human rights in the context of global affairs and is also concerned with the policies of individual states as far as they impact on the affairs of other states.

I have always been curious about global affairs and passionate about finding ways to resolve international conflict, terrorism, nuclear proliferation and third world debt. It was college that I first became keen on this area of study, I had a really passionate teacher who aroused my interest in different political systems and the relationship between countries. This tutor took an intimate interest in the advancement of my abilities and greatly helped me to improve my essay writing skills, public speaking and ability to work productively. My enthusiasm was further increased when I discovered that there are many interesting careers open to graduates of international relations, especially involving overseas travel which is something I greatly enjoy.

Even though I find this constantly evolving subject to be rigorous and demanding I feel all of the effort is worthwhile as it is a very interesting topic that has given me a much better understanding of how the world in which we live works. I really enjoy the dynamic nature of studying Politics and International Relations and am particularly keen on researching European Union integration, territorial politics and nationalism.

I am confident that studying this course at the University of Northampton will equip me with the analytical research skills required for studying processes and factors in international and transnational relations. It will also give me a clear understanding of organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU). These are all skills and knowledge that will help me gain a foothold in any future careers in areas such as the diplomatic corps, politics and government, journalism, charity work, relief and humanitarian work, the United Nations and international business.

To gain more relevant experience I have worked voluntarily as an unpaid administrative assistant for a crisis and security consulting company. Although a part time position it has given me an insight into areas relevant to possible future careers, namely; risk and threat assessment, crisis management plans, security audits and business continuity plans.

While I was searching for a suitable university I came across this course in your institution and it seemed a lot more interesting than what other institutions are offering. I have heard of your first-class reputation that draws people from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. I really look forward to the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead at your university and am confident that your institution will exceed my expectations."

At the end of my studies I intend to return back to my country to secure employment with the foreign affairs ministry in Nigeria where I expect would give me further exposure to the UN and WTO. I aspire to become a senior consultant in this area in the next 10 years. I believe I can achieve this dream if given an opportunity.




Public Policy


It is without doubt that the major issue which has bedeviled my country Nigeria is the lack of credible leaders, leaders who understand what it is to serve and are astute in public policy. From an early age I have had a watch from the side lines as people made an experiment out of my country. I have no doubt that we have all it take to be a great Nation and I certainly have no doubt that we have what it take to be a united nation. Being a child made it easy for me to neglect the shortcomings of those entrusted to rule, govern or guide the part to development of a country housing over 100 million people but as I grow up it has become increasing hard to pay no mind to the gross misconduct and policy neglect which has defined several of the administrations that have attempted to govern Nigeria. Over the years tribal and religious influences coupled with high rates of ignorance and poverty have lent a hand in aiding and abetting corruption and corrupt practices in Nigeria. Looking back now Ican clearly remember feeling as the norm the need for all politicians to be ill-prepared for office, be a smooth talker, make empty promises and embezzle public fund. This was the Nigeria I had come to know. In the University, during my study of Philosophy, I had to learn about Plato’s ideas of the philosopher king. Plato had believed that the Philosopher king is one who has love of knowledge, as well as intelligence, reliability, and a willingness to live a simple life, as I reflected on these words by Plato and weighed them against that which is obtainable in my locale, I realized a huge vacuum had opened in what should have been our most valued asset, “credible leadership”. Many might criticize Plato for being too much of an idealist and probably determine his standards to be unattainable, however life has thought me to aim for the best possible outcome and so I value most of Plato’s philosophies. I held on to that bit of revelation for the longest time as it dawned on me that we cannot seat ideally by and do nothing whilst still hoping for the possible outcome. I also came to realize that knowledge is the foundation upon which any good leadership or governance is built and began paying special attention to subject that addressed governance and policies.It is little wonder why I excelled in subjects such as Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Law and Philosophy of Gender, because it served as a philosophical backdrop to the ideals I was forming. The culminating factor responsible for my current career path is attributed to my final year university project. As one who is not afraid of challenges, I embarked upon a dialectical approach of Capital Punishment using Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment as a primary reference. During the research phase I came across several gross human rights violations reports and saw first hand how the rotten state of the country’s economy can contribute to a life of crime and at the end of my research I advocated for the rehabilitation of criminals or at least first time criminals. Aside from graduating with Second Class Upper Honors, the another substantial take away from that experience was that I had finally decided upon which path to pursue a career. It had dawned on me that the various governmental mismanagement of funds and public resources and the creation of various policy that stands logic on its head had served as a back drop to label Nigeria as a country of corrupt entities. I had further read to my horrors as my Country came agonizingly close to the summit of lists discussing the most corrupt nations in the world. I therefore, decided on career in the development sector with a special focus on public policy and diplomacy. Armed with a clear sense of purpose, I left the university and embarked on my one year National Youth Service Corp. Serving my nation afforded me the opportunity to see first hand the changes I would like to implement, if given the opportunity and it also afforded me the opportunity to serve my community whilst gaining valuable experience. Continuing my plans to pursue a career in the development sector, I worked in the non-profit sector and played my little part in re-branding the ideas of Nigeria. Having now worked for about three years in the Non-profit sector, first as a secretary/research fellow at the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, and then at Global Rights Nigeria as a Communications Intern, my goals and commitment to public service remain steadfast and unwavering. I have had people try to dissuade me from my current part but I have a clear idea of why I chose a path in public policy and it is due to my believe in the possibility of credible leadership in my country and the need to engage other policy makers. Returning to Plato’s “Philosopher King”, a good leader is one whohas “love of knowledge, as well as intelligence, reliability, and a willingness to live a simple life”, I realize that to be the change agent for a better representation of my country through leadership on the local and global stage, I have to improve my capacity through learning and acquisition of knowledge. I therefore write you now with full knowledge of what exactly I intend to do as regards my career to request the opportunity to partake in the Masters in Public Policy program for 2018/2019 academic session. I have taken my time to go through the course catalog and have deduced that the program is sufficiently organized in a manner that covers every aspect of governance and is further designed in a manner most helpful to my career goals. It is my believe that a shrewd understanding of Economics, Law, Philosophy, Public Policy and the Politics of Policy making are fundamental in ensuring good leadership and credible governance aimed towards a common goal, which in turn would lead to the realization of several sustainable development goals. Furthermore, I would like to state clearly that I understand the prestigious nature of the institution and the level of academic excellence that you aspire to have in a class and I believe that my prior background in Philosophy and my experience working in the Non-profit both as a research fellow and communications intern, has afforded me an analytic mind which I believe would be highly valuable during class room discussions. I believe that my background in communications affords me a basic understanding of the need for synergy between the policy makers and members of the media in the development of policies. It is also my believe that with the advent of social media, policy makers have a ready made data center should they choose to make use of it. It affords them an avenue to understand the various impacts and pitfall of the policies they roll out and those intended on being rolled out to the general populace. Furthermore, I am confident that my quick thinking ability, understanding of the failings of public policy in Nigeria, a passion and desire to soak up knowledge would be a useful tool in class room discussion. In conclusion, I trust that the knowledge which I would acquire from a study of Master in Public Policy, would aid me greatly in my quest to push for a more qualitative governance in Nigeria and is convinced on the need to take this step at this stage of my career. I am further enthralled by the prospects of mixing with students from diverse cultural backgrounds and political climes and believe the experience to be an exciting adventure.




criminology and criminal psychology


I am applying for a place on the criminology and criminal psychology course at the University of Greenwich university because I am very interested in the topics covered particularly
Criminology and psychology my interest in these areas was first aroused during my
undergraduate studies at Abia State university where I studied Sociology and I chose to do a final year research topic on Exploiting women for prostitution a crime against Humanity during my research I sourced documents relating to crimes and prostitution my interest was further aroused when reading books and journals on crimes and cases related to it. Your course not only covers the above topics but will
also introduce me to the new areas of Criminology and criminal psychology which will
broaden my knowledge and understanding of the topic as a whole. I achieved
a very high grade for my dissertation and I am keen to build on my interest in
research during the dissertation element of the course. I am expecting to
attain a high 2.1 or first class degree which I hope will demonstrate my
academic ability to study at this level.
My work placement at God's time college as a civic instructor during my service year of early 2017 reinforced my
interest in the areas of crimes and how they can be curbed, and I was able to experience the effects of a subject teacher in a working environment. My main role was
to monitor the students and make sure they understood the government of Nigeria, and other crime related issues and how they can abstain from them through proper application of what they were taught. At the end of my service year, I wrote a report on my findings on Civic education as core subject which was well received by my organisation. This experience helped me to
develop relevant skills in constructing questionnaires, managing my time
effectively and writing succinctly.
I am particularly keen to study at department in your reputable university because of your research interests in criminology and criminal psychology and your reputation of
excellence in these fields. The international reputation of the department
attracts such a variety of students and I believe it will be a stimulating
environment in which to study at masters level. Your university also provides
excellent working and recreation facilities for graduate students which
demonstrate your commitment to the graduate student body.
Following the M.Sc course I would like to pursue my interest in research in the area of criminology either through doing a PhD or possibly researching with a government department or other public sector body.




Social Work


When I had my baby on the XXXXXX 2011, like any mother, I was elated and overjoyed at his birth after a 3 years search. My joy soon turned into serious concern and alarm when I started noticing that something was not quite right with him. I still recall all the sleepless nights I had just wondering what could be wrong and if I was responsible? I started comparing his developments with that of his older brother. He was obviously not hitting any of his developmental milestones. I was devastated and confused. I needed answers, I read books, I researched, I asked questions. It was my quest for answers that led me to OLG CENTRE FOR AUTISM & OTHER DISABILITIES to ascertain what was wrong with my little baby; as I kept seeking, I began to realize that there were other mothers in varied economic and educational strata that had more difficult case; who were lost and without any idea on what to do. This orchestrated the birth of my journey into active volunteerism.

Another turning point was when I lost a dear relative to addiction. His abuse of prohibited substance led to a mental disorder and later culminated to his death. His was a life cut short at prime. Had he gotten the help which he needed; he still might be with us today.

Obviously, I come from a community where people with Addiction and mental health issues are completely forgotten, families are left alone to deal with the problem, families that do not know what to do and often times attribute everything to spiritual attacks. It is therefore my conviction that if I further develop myself by the study of this program, I will without doubt be able to create a positive change mindset and approach to similar issues in my community.

A study of Social Work gives me the platform to learn everything I can learn and bring back same knowledge to bare in my family, group and community alike.




International Studies


As the world becomes more intimately connected and inter-dependant because of globalisation, a solid grounding in the discipline of international relations is vital for anyone who wants to look behind the headlines and explore the key players in world politics. I have been ambitious in studying International Studies in the UK since when I graduated from my first degree. I have been fascinated by the constantly changing world that we live in, wanting to understand and exploring the causes and effects of current and future human interactions. The course will give me concrete intelligence in all matters as it deals with issues like sovereignty, environmentalism, development and human rights in the context of global affairs and is also concerned with the policies of individual states as far as they impact on the affairs of other states.

I have always been curious about global affairs and passionate about finding ways to resolve international conflict, terrorism, nuclear proliferation and third world debt. It was college that I first became keen on this area of study, I had a really passionate teacher who aroused my interest in different political systems and the relationship between countries. This tutor took an intimate interest in the advancement of my abilities and greatly helped me to improve my essay writing skills, public speaking and ability to work productively. My enthusiasm was further increased when I discovered that there are many interesting careers open to graduates of international relations, especially involving overseas travel which is something I greatly enjoy.

Even though I find this constantly evolving subject to be rigorous and demanding I feel all of the effort is worthwhile as it is a very interesting topic that has given me a much better understanding of how the world in which we live works. I really enjoy the dynamic nature of studying Politics and International Relations and am particularly keen on researching European Union integration, territorial politics and nationalism.

I am confident that studying this course at the University of Northampton will equip me with the analytical research skills required for studying processes and factors in international and transnational relations. It will also give me a clear understanding of organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU). These are all skills and knowledge that will help me gain a foothold in any future careers in areas such as the diplomatic corps, politics and government, journalism, charity work, relief and humanitarian work, the United Nations and international business.

To gain more relevant experience I have worked voluntarily as an unpaid administrative assistant for a crisis and security consulting company. Although a part time position it has given me an insight into areas relevant to possible future careers, namely; risk and threat assessment, crisis management plans, security audits and business continuity plans.

While I was searching for a suitable university I came across this course in your institution and it seemed a lot more interesting than what other institutions are offering. I have heard of your first-class reputation that draws people from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. I really look forward to the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead at your university and am confident that your institution will exceed my expectations."

At the end of my studies I intend to return back to my country to secure employment with the foreign affairs ministry in Nigeria where I expect would give me further exposure to the UN and WTO. I aspire to become a senior consultant in this area in the next 10 years. I believe I can achieve this dream if given an opportunity.




Media and Photography


The idea of entertaining people has always excited me. From a young age I’ve enjoyed making people laugh and this has increased with age. Through reading many autobiographies including Graham Norton, Russell Brand and Chris Moyles I realised that a job in the media is something that I would love, as I would be able to hopefully entertain millions of people every day. As I’ve completed my studies, my skills have become more suited to this area as I relished every chance I could get to write creatively or to present in front of large groups of people. Now I have the chance to focus my studies on the media exclusively and choose a career that I can enjoy. The course I hope to study will give me new skills and develop my interest, as well as help me to realise my ambitions, and decide fully on a future career, be it in radio, television or photography, and hopefully produce opportunities for me to start a career in the media.

I have many relevant skills, already, such as communication skills learnt from English and from taking part in drama activities in sixth form, both of which have given me great confidence for performing in front of large groups. I have learnt how to work in a team through field trips collecting data and know how to work individually from presenting or producing coursework.

I can think creatively in the way I find solutions to problems but also can think analytically when studying written or spoken texts as I did in my English language coursework where I analysed four different comedy stand up-routines.

I also have good IT skills and can use programs such as PowerPoint and Publisher confidently and competently.

My Secondary school last form have enabled me to see how audiences can affect/be affected by the context and content of a text. My Civic education course has shown me the value of using data correctly to validate statements made. Due to my Government subject in high school, I know the effect that negative media can have on audience and the consequences, an example being defamation and newspapers being taken to court. Civic Education has taught me about the different values that




Social Work


My decision to become a social worker is the answer to my personal journey to make a difference. Owing to my personal experience with sexual abuse as a young girl growing up in Nigeria, a growing country I call home. I developed a consciousness to the need and situation of individuals faced with similar experiences as mine and the social injustice that prevails.

I have established a strong connection to women issues, especially those of the girl child, this focus was strengthened by my experience and those of others living in Nigeria. My first exposure to the difficult situations women face occurred at the age of nine when I was sexually molested by my biological uncle. I count myself to be one of the lucky few as my uncle’s attempted act of rape was prevented. I have come across stories of women being physically abused by their husbands with no consequences for his actions. I know families where the female child is denied the same treatment afforded the male child as a result of their father’s distorted view of the female child. I continue to hear rape stories where those who carry out these horrible acts go unpunished but the victims are left to confront the stigmatization that comes with being a rape victim.

I recognized it was important to become actively engaged in the in support of the abused, deprived, impoverished or discriminated against in any society I found myself. As such, my pursuit for social justice driven by my experience and those of others began with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Counselling from the University of Lagos. The programme centred on developing practical skills and in-depth understanding of various theories and techniques used by professional counsellors. In addition, my undergraduate programme provided me with a better understanding of how genes, past experiences, an individuals environment or a combination of various factors shape and affect how an individual behaves. The pivotal point in my undergraduate program was during the third year studies, I had the opportunity to intern as a counsellor in a public school. My experience reignited my goal to become a social worker as I was again exposed to individuals who had experienced abuse and were in the process of healing.

A Masters of Social Work from your institution would avail me the opportunity to conclude my journey that ends with helping others. Your University would equip me with the necessary skills, understandings, tools and competitive advantage to achieve my personal goal and excel in my selected field.

My ultimate goal is to play an active role in bringing the needed change in the narrative, the stigma surrounding victims of sexual abuse and to be an active agent in the restoration process. I am committed to play a part in the development of more effective support systems to help those who are disadvantaged and ultimately see the much-needed change in gender inequality and mitigate the occurrences of social injustice and leave behind a better society for future generations especially the female child.




International Relations


Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing has no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international communication

J. William Fullbright

Being of Nigerian (African) heritage means I am at the heart of multiculturalism that many will say best describes the UK today. I have been able of experiencing not only the western culture but also other cultures over a few visits to the UK and I will say it has ignited my passion and helped understand my purpose ,making me knowledgeable and openminded.Nigeria has a country hasn't helped me understand the dynamics of its socio-political history and culture as what is been acted out is utterly different from what I have been thought and I have on my own learnt,a good example is d 2018 gubernatorial election in 1 of d south western states in Nigeria where d ruling party openly and forcefully hijacked the sit from d winning candidate/opposition party amongst other examples. This has in turn ignited a keen interest to wanting to pursue international relations and communications outside my home land and what better place to be fed and experience true and unmanipulated knowledge than the UK,whom began and successfully develop and runs a parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarchy, which is quite similar to the Nigerian constitutional systemic

It has been within the past few years that I have recognized my passion and recent events has fueled my inquisitiveness on the subject of international relations. I have always been interested in what d world has to offer. I believe everyone and everything in the world is connected and is a gate way to unlimited knowledge and reasoning

I have been able to challenge my self academically to better represent myself as a student and as an individual.

Media, Marketing & Public relations


I have always being descript, as a good communicator who can held-on a meaningful conversation for lengthen period of time. A young intelligent and talented lady with huge desire to develop creative communication skills and techniques. This have been the driven passion in furthering my undergraduate studies in Media, Marketing & Public relations.

With a Bachelor of Science in Media, Marketing & Public relations my career pursues in working as a broadcaster could eventually materialize and my talent in communication would serve as a bench mark for effective communication among respective scholars.

I finished my High school in 2014, and I wrote JAMB exams which was supposed to qualify me in the University, unfortunately none of the schools accepted me for the course I wanted.

During this wait, I had to undertake some professional courses on effective communication and linguistic, with a broad guild on the importance and legerities of good communication and broadcasting, which have help me developed an index knowledge of feedback mechanism and communication channels.

My choice of course (Media, Marketing & Public relations) at the University of Bedfordshire is bent on my endless desire in professional broadcasting and entertainment; which is already a forecast talent in me.

International Relations


Growing up in rural Nigeria, the adage "women don't speak unless spoken to" was common with the people. Only during my years studying Law at Rivers State University, did it become clear that this was an attack on my rights as a person. It was society's attempt to give a misogynistic ideal a free pass by branding it as a form of courtesy. When writing my undergraduate thesis which discussed the rights of the Nigerian child in comparison with those of their counterparts in the United Kingdom, it became clear that we not only had issues with prejudice towards women, we also had a long way to go in rethinking and reinforcing the rights we afforded our children.

Women and children are often the most vulnerable in a world rife with transnational crime syndicates, terrorism and armed conflicts. To proffer solutions to these problems, comprehending the relationship between international legalities, geopolitics and global security is essential. By studying this course, I will fully understand the complexities of international relations; the nature and scale of global threats to security; along with how to respond to these threats within legal boundaries. I firmly believe that an masters degree in this course from De Montfort University, Leicester will provide the necessary skills required to help with my immediate goal of systematically tackling the triggers of terrorism in Nigeria through raising awareness on the development of institutions that empower women and children. I intend to achieve this by creating or joining a pre-existing organisation dedicated to providing a hands-on approach to piquing national interest on the direct relationship between high rates of child education, proper enforcement of human rights, female empowerment and a reduced threat to national security.

Successfully using the knowledge garnered from this course requires the ability to fit in seamlessly with people of all backgrounds. To solve issues of security that transcend borders, a certain level of familiarity and diplomacy between two or more cultures is necessary. Through the organisation of memorable events, one-on-one interactions and by being a success story myself, I want people to realise that Nigerians (and Africans, too) do not all conform to the negative stereotypes. I intend to make them see that we can be honest, hardworking, efficient people with hopes and dreams. I plan on embracing and learning from this new culture as a way to facilitate uncomplicated communication and the exchange of mutually beneficial concepts between myself and people around me. I also believe that going down this exciting new path of immersion in something completely different from what I am used to will heighten my senses of empathy and inclusiveness.

Energized and empowered by all I hope to gain from this course, not only do I want to speak when I am not spoken to, I want to passionately raise my voice and make it a voice of reason that resonates with the people of my country and the global community.





Law

LLM Law


My interest in law was first sparked off during my childhood by watching solicitors and lawyers deciding on a case in movies, the way they talk and the positive altitude to things. I was fascinated and I always told myself I will be a lawyer someday. That propelled me into reading law. I have also attended court proceeding in my country with where I shadow with lawyers of the law office I was attached for a period of 3months.

During this time, I attended court proceeding, drafted letters, sat in meetings and assisted with office task. When I was done with is placement I was encouraged to set a career in law than changing to any other field.

I am applying for this course because after completing my LL.M in international commercial law, I have better understanding of what a legal career involves and am convinced that a solicitor or lawyer is appropriate for me.

During my first year of my degree I joined the student law society and now have a major role on the executive committee with responsibility for organising events. This has included leading a team of students to set up and take part in a charity debate. I have the capacity for a large workload and balancing my growing role in the student law society with the demands of my degree is helping me to develop my time-management skills.

I have fully developed my research skills, listening skills and ability to explain complex terminology in a way that members of the public can understand. I also developed my interviewing skills and the ability to write formal letters. This experience has helped me to recognise that I would prefer a law career with a people-centred focus and would like to work in family law, a law centre. I also developed my writing skills, after being given the opportunity to draft a will for examination purposes.

Throughout my course I have chosen electives that have supported my developing interests in family law and criminology. I have come to the realisation that as well as being interested in the rules that determine whether a person has a committed a criminal offence, I am equally interested in factors which may have led to offenders breaking the law in the first place. The importance of neighbourhood and the effects of poverty are also factors that interest me.

I have found modules on family law particularly absorbing. I was especially interested in the role and limits of the law in regulating family relationships, and how the law is used in family disputes and contact with children after parental separation.

Also, during Law school, I had the opportunity to join the Moot court trial proceeding which gave us an insight on what the duties are to be carried out as a lawyer and a solicitor in court. I also learnt how to settle cases out of court by undergoing a training on a course Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

I am interested in the emphasis on case studies that mimic real-life scenarios. I also like the idea of courses with a practitioner mentor scheme and a wide range of work experience placements, as I haven’t yet secured a training contract. I am particularly interested in opportunities to do a work placement in the legal department of a social services childcare team. I am keen to further develop knowledge and skills in human rights law, criminology and family law, so have done courses that offer electives in these areas.

I am motivated by an interest in human rights and helping people understand what they are entitled to, particularly in cases where complex legal language dissuades people from exercising their rights. My future plans are to secure a training contract in a personal legal services firm, with a particular interest in divorce and family law, or to work in local government in child protection. I am enthusiastic to take the next step in the route to enable me to work as a solicitor.




LLM Law


What motivates my decision to study International Law LLM in the Coventry University is because I believe it would prepare me to pursue a career in the legal. My interest in the area of International Law was first aroused when I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Bedfordshire. Modules such as public law enable me to understand the legal relationship between the law and the state.

Also, volunteering for the Refugee Legal Aid project during my undergraduate studies enabled me to understand the basic concept of human right and how the immigration laws of the United Kingdom operate on an international level to bring about justice.

I choose to pursue a postgraduate degree in Coventry University as I believe it has the necessary ability to equip me for the real legal world. Being ranked 15th place on the Guardian University Guide 2017 has affirmed my decision that it is indeed the right place to study an LLM as the department of law boasts of excellent and reputable tutors.


Following the completion of my postgraduate studies, I would return to my home country Nigeria where I would attend Law school and become a qualified barrister.




Oil and Gas Law


As a native of Nigeria I am very aware of the potential mineral and chemical wealth of my country. Our oil and gas reserves are of massive proportions, but we suffer at present from a shortage of truly skilled and trained technical staff to develop the extraction industry. I am a student with a strong academic background in law but I am very eager to further my knowledge and expertise through a degree from a top-ranking university, with a view to returning to my homeland to help to realise its potential for great wealth and all that this could bring to my fellow citizens. It is clear to everybody that the functioning of the modern world depends on the availability of oil and gas, and will continue to do so until a new energy technology emerges.

As known global reserves of oil reach their peak production capacities there will be few more important jobs in the world in the immediate future than that of the drilling engineer.

My ambition is to complete a degree and then work for a major exploration firm or an oil company. I know that this is a field which deals with the most complex technical and engineering challenges in the industry, and would involve working in the most extreme conditions on earth – the arctic, the desert and in the deep oceans.

It is a challenging prospect, but a very rewarding one, offering the chance to work with some brilliant thinkers and to use technology beyond last year’s dreams. I have a good grounding in maths and the sciences even though I have a background in law. I know I can fit in into this field of knowledge.

I have also undertaken a number of work placements that have given me some experience of the oil industry. I spent some time at a large oil chemistry refinery the Warri Refinery Petroleum Corporation (WRPC) Delta State in Nigeria and Pipeline Products Marketing Company (PPMC) in Kaduna refinery in Nigeria under Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), where I did a short term job during the summer holidays.

I was an operator in the catalytic reforming unit, and most recently, I worked as a full time operator in the processing workshop, involved in the secondary processes of oil distillation and also in the section which dealt with catalytic cracking, and the rectification and treatment of process condensate. These working experiences gave me good insight into the complexities of the petrochemical industry, and helped to deepen my understanding of some very difficult processes, as well as giving me a taste of working as part of a team of technicians.

My main interest at present is getting full knowledge of this course and in drilling, particularly in offshore drilling and drilling fluids.

I am reliable, trustworthy. Hardworking and sociable. My analytical skills are strong and I have much initiative as well as enjoying working in a team. My enthusiasm for my subject and my chosen career is unquestionable, and my commitment total. I hope you will consider my application.




LLM Law


Successfully completing an LLB in Law, I have gained solid, legal academic training at an accredited educational institution. I have developed an incredibly high interest in furthering my legal study in International Business Law. I believe this combination of achievements and qualities make me an ideal candidate to study this important area of law, at this internationally recognised faculty.

The undergraduate studies in LLB Law have equipped me with the knowledge and skills to present a valid legal argument, with a sound understanding of the foundations of the legal structure, legislation and case law. From a young age, I have had a high curiosity in political and business affairs, where I would constantly read the news and magazines which focus on the business world. I discovered the ever changing business environment and how they face new laws, regulations and cases which involve small, large, new and established companies.

During my degree, usual go for court visits and it helped me to gained a lot of insight in to how the law work in practice, which makes it more of interest to me. However, these visits to the court confirmed my interest in international business law, where the legal repercussions affect a wide range of stakeholders, from the employers, employees and customers to competitors. Having family members in corporate business, I have gained insight into the importance of business law. I am confident that if I am privilege to study international business law, I will be able to provide solid legal advice, in which businesses are able to make informed and sound business decisions, taking my legal knowledge to a new level.

Over the years I have developed personal skills which include creativity, presenting arguments with conviction, inspiration and strategy. With such knowledge and skills becoming a lawyer also means a high level of accuracy of the facts and legal support for the case. Given that legal practice is a complex process, I have also gained the ability to reflect on this and the law’s role in contemporary society. Studying law at degree level has enhanced my skills in problem solving and presenting watertight arguments to the opposition.

I am diligent, focused and motivated to succeed as an international business relations lawyer. I wish to bring my leadership skills, critical thinking and ability to present legally sound arguments to this internationally renowned course. I am keen to learn from esteemed professors the complex nature of international business law, relate to like-minded peers and further my knowledge and skills, which can be transferred anywhere in the world. I believe in working towards a fair and just legal system, providing professional legal advice and ensuring clients receive exemplary representation.

Specialising in Business Law will allow me to understand the opportunities and problems facing businesses in the changing global market place. Covering the fundamentals of law, relationship of law to ethics, criminal law, torts, contracts, agency, risk management, insurance and human resource management, this course will provide the power needed to prevent legal problems and resolve conflicts in business, faced by business managers.

Studying international business, trade and tax law will allow me to go in to business, industry and commercial environments confidently. Given the global financial situation, understanding corporate rescue and insolvency law will be of benefit to companies who are currently fighting for their future. The internet gives businesses, large and small, a global network. Information businesses provide is relevant to customers residing in the business home country and across the world, therefore a deeper understanding of e-commerce law is highly relevant to any modern enterprise. Protecting employers and employees from misconduct and disputes, employment law is an area in which is a necessary area to completely understand.

I understand that becoming a lawyer takes time and effort, where I am willing to make the commitment to this course, and future clients, for the progression of my career. International business law combines the elements of law which I enjoy – criminal and commercial law. Advising and representing on legal matters for public and private businesses presents a vast array of interesting legal avenues and challenges in the dynamic world of business.

In an increasingly competitive world, I am looking for focused training, which will help me critically analyse and evaluate laws governing business and international business relationships. By gaining a higher appreciation of relevant rules and principles of the international business law environment, will greatly enhance my career prospects and professional development. I believe this course will provide the relevant training and legal expertise to ensure business affairs are fair and just.

I currently work as a chamber head in Francis Ikadoi Ikio & Co , a law firm based in Port-Harcourt.

Although it’s been fun and quite an experience being educated and working in my country, I want to further my education so as to meet my career goals and objectives, hence, my choice to do a masters in oil and gas law outside the shores of my country.

The United Kingdom is diverse with a strong presence of international students bringing different skills and learning strategies to acquire knowledge and it is an interesting place to live, as there are people from different parts of the world with different cultures, that one would learn from. The standard of education in the UK is also proven to be above par. My decision to study in the UK is informed by some factors like, completing my course on time, learn in a conducive environment, have access to world class library, meet professionals in my field from all over the world, connect with other lawyers, to mention but a few.

My choice to study oil and gas law is to gain an in depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory environment as well as processes in the international energy and resource industries. There are also very few accountable oil and gas lawyers in Nigeria which brings about gaps in this area to tackle issues that arises.

After my course I will be going back to Nigeria to continue work as my country is in high demand for oil and gas law professionals being an oil producing Nation.

I would be tremendously elated if I get the opportunity to be part of your esteemed institution.

I have obtained a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree fro the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, which serves as good foundation for my proposed postgraduate study. I have also gained valuable working experience during my participation in the National Youth Service Corp programme; which is a mandatory work placement scheme. During this programme I worked at the Bomadi Local Government council in Delta State, where I worked as the an in house legal officer for the council and had the responsibility of preparing legal documents and processes as well as working as part a legal advisory team in council chairman’s office. This legal advisory team was charged with the responsibility of providing legal advice to the Chairman of the Local Government council on the legal implications of the council’s action and inactions. Also my role gave me the opportunity of being privy to the process of drafting and making local government bye Laws.

I am a very innovative and creative person I enjoy creative writing and photography. So, when I am not engaged in work or studies I use Photography and creative writing as tools to help me relax and improve my appreciation and interpretation of other cultures. Additionally I enjoy reading and socialising with like minds when I can.

I have been an active member of the Bonny Youth Council; which is the apex youth organisation in my local government area where I had the privilege of volunteering for several charitable causes including providing pro bono legal advice and services as well as books for school children at the rural areas in Bonny. This opportunity to give back to my community stands as one my proudest achievements in life.

I look forward to being admitted to Conventry university in the future as it would mark improve my employability and as well as enable develop entrepreneurial and research skills that I would require for my life on graduation.




LLM Law


My interest in law was first sparked off during my childhood by watching solicitors and lawyers deciding on a case in movies, the way they talk and the positive altitude to things. I was fascinated and I always told myself I will be a lawyer someday. That propelled me into reading law. I have also attended court proceeding in my country with where I shadow with lawyers of the law office I was attached for a period of 3months.

During this time, I attended court proceeding, drafted letters, sat in meetings and assisted with office task. When I was done with is placement I was encouraged to set a career in law than changing to any other field.

I am applying for this course because after completing my LL.M, B.L and LL.M in international commercial law, I have better understanding of what a legal career involves and am convinced that a solicitor or lawyer is appropriate for me.

During my first year of my degree I joined the student law society and now have a major role on the executive committee with responsibility for organising events. This has included leading a team of students to set up and take part in a charity debate. I have the capacity for a large workload and balancing my growing role in the student law society with the demands of my degree is helping me to develop my time-management skills.

Also, during Law school, I had the opportunity to join the Moot court trial proceeding which gave us an insight on what the duties are to be carried out as a lawyer and a solicitor in court. I also learnt how to settle cases out of court by undergoing a training on a course Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This made me part in a team negotiation exercise to reach a mutually agreeable settlement. I discovered that my strengths lie in logical thinking and prioritising the most important facts.

I have fully developed my research skills, listening skills and ability to explain complex terminology in a way that members of the public can understand. I also developed my interviewing skills and the ability to write formal letters. This experience has helped me to recognise that I would prefer a law career with a people-centred focus and would like to work in family law, a law centre. I also developed my writing skills, after being given the opportunity to draft a will for examination purposes.

Throughout my course I have chosen electives that have supported my developing interests in family law and criminology. I have come to the realisation that as well as being interested in the rules that determine whether a person has a committed a criminal offence, I am equally interested in factors which may have led to offenders breaking the law in the first place. The importance of neighbourhood and the effects of poverty are also factors that interest me.

I have found modules on family law particularly absorbing. I was especially interested in the role and limits of the law in regulating family relationships, and how the law is used in family disputes and contact with children after parental separation.

I have chosen these law schools because of the focus on developing practical skills through case studies, the wide range of employability modules and the professionalism of the tutors. I am interested in the emphasis on case studies that mimic real-life scenarios. I also like the idea of courses with a practitioner mentor scheme and a wide range of work experience placements, as I haven’t yet secured a training contract. I am particularly interested in opportunities to do a work placement in the legal department of a social services childcare team. I am keen to further develop knowledge and skills in human rights law, criminology and family law, so have done courses that offer electives in these areas.

I am motivated by an interest in human rights and helping people understand what they are entitled to, particularly in cases where complex legal language dissuades people from exercising their rights. My future plans are to secure a training contract in a personal legal services firm, with a particular interest in divorce and family law, or to work in local government in child protection. I am enthusiastic to take the next step in the route to enable me to work as a solicitor.




LLM Law


The subject of law fascinates me extensively. I am intrigued by developments in the law and the way that it adapts to an ever-changing society. I feel I would be suited to a law degree as I am at my best when challenged, relish the opportunity of lateral thinking and enjoy evaluating the microcosm of human relations.


I have improved my understanding of the law by spending 12 weeks in a Solicitors Office. I benefited from this vastly, as I was able to attend some cases at Magistrates Courts on frequent occasions, to take notes and observe cases that my employer was accountable for. The experience was enthralling as I learnt about the work undertaken at a small high-street firm, the ambience of a courtroom, and more about the officials that occupy it.

Recently, I attended case at the Magistrate Court in Abuja Nigeria to gain first-hand experience of a complex and serious crime case. The defendant used the partial defence of provocation on the grounds of an affair, which was later dismissed. I had strong feelings about the handling and outcome of the case, which confirmed my thoughts of law as a career.

At my secondary school I had the privilege of becoming one of the best behaved student. As part of this role I gave many speeches to my contemporaries from different schools, as well as parents and professionals. I also chaired the Student Council where I had an active input into my school's welfare, delegated workloads and took expeditions with
teachers representing the school as an ambassador.

I enjoy English because I am able to express myself creatively through essays and discussion. I am an avid reader, and enjoyed reading various editions of the Law books' which addresses many issues facing a law student. I keep abreast of legal issues especially in Nigeria in order to stay current on legal issues.

I am confident the social and academic lifestyle at university would allow me to develop as a person. I would like to become a solicitor and believe that a law degree will significantly aid me to achieve this goal.

I have chosen to study in the UK because this has been my dream for a long time. Studying Law in the UK exposes me to the judicial system in the UK as it tends to be one of the best in the World. It would also give me the opportunity to understand how the European law looks like.

University of Worcester was my chosen choice due to how wonderful and nice the city is, and also the institution is well known amongst other institution to teach this course appropriately. I believe that at the end of this course I would return back to Nigeria to attend the Law school and further secure employment in one of the largest law firms in Nigeria.




Environmental Law


I have always loved the environment for as long as I can remember. What initially seemed a passing interest has blossomed into full passion as I have remained concerned about the interactions between humans and this planet we call home. This is why at this time, pursuing a MSc in Environmental Law feels like the culmination of a lifelong dream.

I have spent a considerable amount of time in the legal profession, holding a strong desire to see not just the rule of law prevail, but the integrity of equity for underdogs left untampered with. Having worked hard to earn both a Bachelors and a Masters Degree in Law, gaining the tools that will equip me in the battle to preserve the environment from one of the most prestigious institutions globally has become a tantalising goal.

Environmental Law is perhaps one of the most fundamental points of ensuring a brighter future for mankind. Seeking and implementing policies and legislations that would preserve nature cannot be overstated. This is primarily why I am fully convinced that seeking a Research Degree at Brunel University is the next logical step in my professional career. With the world already having to stare down the dire consequences of global warming amidst rampant corporate irresponsibility, I believe this academic path is the right one if I am going to help make a difference.

As I am involved in legal proceedings at one of Nigeria’s most important institutions, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), ensuring that the act of corporate governance is kept within the lines of corporate social responsibility; my understanding of the law is fully established. Being part of the teams that drafted the codes of Corporate Governance for Nigeria has equipped me with a perspective that can only be enhanced by the world class teaching and research standards of the Brunel University.

With over a decade of experience, which includes volunteer work, my understanding of conflict resolution and investigative nous makes me eager to enrol and partake in a Programme in Environmental Law at Brunel University. The overall integrity of the institution, the rich content of the programme and the quality of the facilitators are some of the interesting factors that make the University one of the most ideal place of study for an international student like me seeking to grow her network of influence.

I hope that in the long run, the knowledge will be invaluable in building a solid base for my onward journey into the world of Environmental Litigation as well as ensuring that I can protect those who have seen their rights degraded in silence for so many years.

I look forward to having an exciting experience at this prestigious institution.




Maritime Law


I learnt about your prestigious university, XXXXX University online. The University offers Maritime Law, which is my area of interest. The learning environment is calm and encouraging and I believe it is the required environment for serious academic activities, hence, my desire to study with your university.

My interest in the course Maritime Law is not farfetched. I hail from a small community in the southern part of Nigeria called Bayelsa State which is surrounded with waters. The marine environment is endowed with enormous mineral and other natural resources and there is need to harness these resources for the benefit of all without causing any adverse damage to the environment. This environment however has been experiencing a lot of changes daily. The environment is degrading as a result of the various activities carried out by man, oil spillage and pollution of various kinds are in a daily occurrence. These activities makes the environment unfit for the existence of human and marine organisms, as human depends largely on marine resources for survival. The change in climate, loss of biodiversity and the overexploitation of the natural resources are alarming.

My interest is to know amount of resources endowed in the marine environment, how we can utilize them without damaging the environment and the mechanisms to explore such as; environmental impact assessment schemes, rules, regulations, and policies to be implemented locally, nationally and internationally to regulate human activities and protect the environment for future generations.

After my studies, I will implement the knowledge acquired in protecting the environment, make it suitable for human existence while harnessing our natural resources for national or international revenues.

I am willing and open to learn and I know that I will utilize this opportunity judiciously, if granted the privilege in your Institution.
