International Tourism and Hospitality PS1


My name is Bala Zekeri, i was born in Mainamaji Village, Bauchi state Nigeria. Minanamaji village is just a few kilometers away from the Yankari Game reserve, a major tourist destination in Nigeria. Growing up in a community which depends largely on tourism and having seen the benefit of tourism this was a factor that made me want to pursue the career in BSc International Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Aside from growing up in a community driven by tourism, from my early age I have had love for traveling, visiting more than 15 states across Nigeria. i Have also visited Cameroon and Benin Republic, where i have learnt to speak basic French language. And this has made traveling my major hobby. I also have hobbies in mountain climbing, cycling and athletics.

My involvement in athletics has made my traveling very possible, having represented my secondary school in various athletics competitions across Nigeria, and I have won a number of personal awards and medals. I have always been focused, business minded and goal driven. I have attended a number of leadership training and courses where I have learnt the value of leadership and organisational skills. I will need to succeed in this highly competitive industry.

Growing up I have always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to be a tourist expert who offers tourism and hospitality related services. At secondary school, myself and a group of friends always visit the Yankari game Reserve where we provide minor services such as taking them around the community, cleaning and translators to visiting foreign tourists. Aside from the money earned from this mania job, I was able to learn about other places through communicating with the foreign tourists and this has increased my desire to explore a large world.

Although i have always been passionate about pursuing a career in the tourism industry, i was not sure which degree would offer me that unique training that would give me the chance to put my love of travel into an industry context and develop my knowledge of the business aspects of travel and tourism. However, during one of my regular visits to the game reserve, I was opportune to speak to a British tourist and researcher at the game reserve who told me that I could pursue a degree course in International Tourism and Hospitality management. He further told me that a degree in International tourism would not only offer me the knowledge that i would need to work in the tourism industry, also i could learn about animal and wildlife protection.

My interaction with the British tourist became the motivation I needed to want to study in the UK, her calmness and friendly approach as she answered my questions made me fall in love with the UK educational system.

When I am not fulfilling my academic responsibilities, I would be involved in athletics activities such as running and mountain climbing which have always been a part of me. I hope that my strong passion for tourism and the various skills I have learned through my involvement with tourism activities will serve as a valuable tool during my study. After graduation I intend to work briefly in the tourism industry anywhere in the world before proceeding for my Master’s Degree in Tourism management.

Tourism and hospitality are a flourishing and fast-growing business in Africa, according to data from the United Nation World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) it shows that Africa is the second-fastest growing continent in terms of tourism. In 2018 there was a 5.6% growth rate. Africa received around 5% of the estimated 1.4 billion international tourists in 2018. What this portrays is that there is a huge potential for the business of tourism and hospitality in Africa and this has formed the basis of my interest to pursue a career in International Tourism and Hospitality management.

I was born to a hotelier mother and an exported father, I have always been drawn into the business of hospitality, taking after my mother. I consider myself fortunate and lucky to have been born in a family that emphasizes value for education and in encouraging kids to pursue a career of their interest.

While I have learned quite a few about hotel management from my mother there is still much to be learned. My keen interest in traveling was very obvious in my growing up as I was intrigued about visiting new places and keeping photos and journals about my visit.

During my secondary school years, I joined a travel club. In my final year in secondary school I became the head of my school travel club. Through the travel club I was able to visit a lot of historical sites in Nigeria, Benin Republic, Ghana and Togo. This also afforded me the opportunity to meet and interact with students from these countries.

After my secondary school I started work as a travel agent booking officer. This job further opened my eyes to the business of tourism and hospitality. As a travel agent booking officer, I came in contact with a lot of foreign travellers and tourists, who through them I gained meaningful insights about countries that I was dreaming of visiting.

The courses I have selected will enable me to develop a proper understanding of the business of International tourism and hospitality so that I will be prepared for future employment whilst enabling me to fully engage in, and enjoy, learning over the next three to four years. I enjoy socialising and also meeting new people and I am looking forward to the academic lifestyle and to the social aspect of university.

Studying in your school as a foreign student would also offer me the opportunity to take part in a residential experience offered by your school. This will be a chance to meet new friends and take part in a number of challenges which will help me develop strong problem solving and team working skills.

A degree in tourism does not just provide one with the knowledge and the business of tourism, it also provides one with an empirical understanding of the relationship between activities of tourism, conservation and dwelling natural habitable. The need to forge a thorough understanding of these relations has become a drive for me to acquire a degree in the field of international tourism and hospitality.

I was born into a family who pay keen attention to educational development and academic excellence. My father is a history lecturer at a state university in my country, while my mother is also a proprietor of a private school. Coming from a household highly shaped by education I was determined to prove to myself and to my parents that I can attain success in my academic pursuit.

Whatever I am doing I strive to achieve my potential, whether studying, playing sport or undertaking work experience I fully commit myself to the tasks at hand. I believe that I am a dedicated student who has many interests, both of the academic and non-academic nature.

Over the years, I have developed interest in environmental conservation, tourism and wildlife. Though I have hoped to pursue a career in geography, along the line I came to discover that I derived more passion from tourism and hospitality. And coupled with the fact that a study in tourism and hospitality management would also afford me the opportunity to understand the relation between hospitality and natural environment, and how the former affects the later gives me great joy.

After my secondary school I have volunteered in various organizations that are concerned about sustainable development and resources management. I have also undertaken various online courses that relate to tourism and sustainable development.

Studying in your school will give me the chance to acquire an understanding of sustainable tourism and development as well as the organisational structure and management of the ever-expanding service providing sector. Tourism industry is a fast-growing business, with ever changing dynamics. Studying in your school would also give me a good understanding of the core areas of the business and management of the tourism sector with the ability to contribute at a regional, national and global level.

And your school seems to be the perfect ground for my career pursuit as it offers Masters and PhD courses that are related to sustainable development and resources management.

The desire to pursue a career in the tourism and hospitality sector has really interested me. This has become a part of my imagination since the very first day I visited the Obudu cattle ranch in Cross River state of Nigeria. I found the course rewarding and appealing because it opened my mind to the wider world and also working in the tourism industry offers a chance for me to easily combine two areas that have been of keen interest to me: travel and business.

Through my visit to the Obudu cattle ranch and some other tourist attractions in Nigeria, I have come to realize that the tourist and hospitality sector offers a wealth of opportunities to people with the right knowledge, skills and training. However, not many are aware of this huge opportunity and unlike many other sectors, the services offered in the travel, hospitality and vacation business cannot fail to excite me. I am happy at the possibility to understand this sector academically through studying it at university in preparation for a career.

I have developed interest and became an addict fan of a popular television travel program Goge Africa. I have also become an avid reader of different travel magazines and publications and this has helped me to focus my mind on the business aspects of tourism and hospitality.

After my secondary school, I worked in a travel consulting firm as a booking agent. I am responsible for booking destinations for travellers and also engaging potential holiday fun-seekers. During the period I worked as a travel booking agent, I gained insight into the business of tourism and I was more interested in the marketing aspect of tourism and what motivates people to travel.

I was also afforded the opportunity to visit a lot of tourism destinations in Nigeria. Generally, the experience i have gained through work has so far made me appreciate the huge opportunities that are available in the tourism and hospitality business. From economics to environment to management and marketing, this has in turn given me cause to look forward to the multi-disciplinary content of a degree in International tourism and hospitality management.

As a travel enthusiast, with an endless curiosity to discover new places, the tourism and hospitality industry is undoubtedly the sector I want to build a career. I see acquiring a degree in tourism as the ideal first step in making this goal become a reality. In furthering this goal, I have chosen your school as the most suitable academic environment to pursue my dream.







International Tourism and Hospitality PS5


Over the years my passion to cater for people and my love for travelling and tourism has grown wider, and I have developed strong passion and love for tourism and hospitality after attending different training and seminars that are related to tourism. Through these training, I have come to understand that there are serious challenges as it relates to poor management of tourist destinations in Nigeria. Poor attitude of tourism and hospitality managers in Nigeria has made the business less lucrative and this has called for an urgent improvement.

In preparation for the university, after I left secondary school, I worked as a tour guide in a travelling firm in Lagos. It was during this time I saw that there were a lot of problems that need to be addressed to help boost the tourism business in the country. I also gained experience in hospitality management. My personal experience and love I developed working as a tour guide in Lagos made me believe that I would be well suited to pursue a career in international tourism and hospitality.

Over the years I have been able to improve my understanding of the hospitality business and also developed other skills such as communication, interpersonal relationships and team work that would serve as an added advantage in my future dream as a professional hospitality service provider.

I have also understood that the tourism business is constantly expanding to cater for the needs of the traveller and their desire to go further more frequently. A degree in this course will keep me up to date with emerging trends and global issues, and also provide me with the experience and skills required to enter the industry at a professional level.

I strongly believe that a degree in International tourism and hospitality from your school would prepare me well for the task ahead and I would be exposed to a wide network of students from various countries, because your school has become the number one foreign student destination in the UK. I have selected your school to undertake my studies because based on statistics, the school is ranked among the top Uk university. The facilities for my course in your university are excellent and suit my needs.

Your school is also ranked among the best and affordable schools for foreign students in the UK. No university in my country offers International tourism and hospitality as a degree course, and the few schools that offer related courses lack the facilities to teach the course in detail.

As an individual my major strength has been my good communication skills. I can communicate effectively with people and share my ideas to people at various levels, from family members, to my peers and teachers. I have developed an effective method of persuasion to get across my ideas and conclusions. This has made me an effective logical and methodical thinker; I am able to see the wider picture as well as the detail of the projects I work on. Looking at the modern challenges faced by tourism organisations, my skills to solve complicated problems would come very useful.

For two consecutive years during my senior secondary school I elected head of my school travel clubs. I was also part of the team that worked on various excursion trips embarked by students from my schools. The skills I learned during this period have helped me develop a spirit of teamwork and critical thinking.

I have also developed the skills and ability to deliver work and any tasks I am given, within a schedule, tight deadlines, in a time-pressured environment. I get through difficult periods by focusing on solutions rather than problems. These skills would prove very effective in pursuit of a career in tourism and hospitality.

International tourism as a discipline is unique, it is a fast-growing discipline especially in our ever-changing world where businesses and way of doing businesses are also evolving. It is important to note that the future of successful hospitality and tourism businesses lies in the ability of business managers to effectively and seamlessly provide services to travellers and tourists in a secured, friendly and fast way. A career in hospitality would afford me the opportunity to help achieve this goal.

International Tourism and hospitality are a flourishing and fast-growing business in Nigeria as well in other parts of Africa and across the globe. This growth and boom in this industry can be attributed to numerous factors like: advancement of technology and emergence of the internet that has made the entire world a small global village, increased middle class income, availability of resources, and friendly government policies.

Finance and Accounting PS1


My interest in studying finance and accounting was stimulated by my constant desire to ensure accountability and accurate financial records. These traits I have exhibited from my early age as a young boy growing up in Lagos and I have received numerous awards for this. As an ambitious and dedicated student, I develop a strong passion for mathematics and accounting and I always come out top in my class. I am good at problem solving, I can easily adapt to different situations, I can manage time, I am self-confident and am great at handling pressure.

In my secondary school, I recognize the challenges posed by everyday academic work especially in an unpredictable learning environment. I have over the time learnt to adapt to these challenges and it formed the basis of my problem-solving skills. Which i believe would be useful in a career as tedious and brain tasking as finance and accounting.

Because of my desires to ensure that accuracy is put in place in whatever I do, I have participated in numerous activities and projects both in school and in my community. My participation in both school and community activities help me pick up some skills and knowledge which can be useful in the future.

During my secondary school I performed the role of the school time-keeper, and this gave me influence in making sure students come to school early, and teachers get to class at the appropriate time. I was also part of the school sports team and I took active part in all school activities. I was the team captain for the school female football team. During my time as a captain we won two medals (a bronze and a Silver) in the state female football tourney. I have also won medals in athletics.

After graduation from secondary school, I started work in a shopping mall as an attendant. Within the first 6 months I started work, I was promoted a cashier, after the management saw my accuracy with money. As a cashier, I worked closely with the accountant and the manager. Working with the organization accountant further increased my love and skills with finance management.

This also influenced my decision to want to pursue a career in finance and accounting, with the hope to put my passion for accuracy to work. I planned to go to school in the Uk, because it would present a healthy challenging environment, and opportunity to grow and learn.

My name is Grace, i am 17 years old. I hail from Oyo state but i was born in Abeokuta, Ogun state Nigeria, where i grew up and attended both my primary and secondary school education. The desire to study for a degree in finance and accounting was influenced by an accounting teacher during my senior secondary class. Her name was Mrs. Hassan.

Mrs. Hassan was a Hausa lady who taught accounting in my school, her friendly demeanour could melt a hardened heart. In Fact, it was her friendly demeanour that always made students flock around her and she won the heart of most students in my school. During my junior class i have always admired Mrs. Hassan for her calmness, mode of dressing and way of teaching. After our Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination as we move to senior secondary classes, students are distributed to classes based on their performance.

Those who performed well in science-oriented subjects were placed in science class and those who performed well in business related subjects were placed in commercial classes, and those who performed well in social and art related subjects were placed in art class.

Because of my performance in science related subjects, i was placed in the science, but i was not interested in the science class because i wanted to be in the class where i would be taught by Mrs. Hassan. When I got home, I cried all through the night and told my parents that I wanted to be in the commercial class. The next day my dad came to my school to see the school guidance and counsellor and told her how i wanted to be placed in the commercial class. After much discussion, the school management switched my class from science to commercial.

Within a short period, I was already the best student in accounting, because of my good knowledge in arithmetic I found book-keeping and accounting very interesting. Io also quickly formed a bond with Mrs. Hassan, whose classes i always enjoyed. Through her I learnt a lot about how one could pursue a career as an accountant. Aside from having great love for the accounting subject I was an active participant in athletics in the school. I have represented my school in various races such as the 100m, 200m and 400m relay. My hobbies include running, reading and swimming.

After my secondary school senior certificate examination, I graduated with good and exceptional grades and my over joyous parents promised me that they were ready to send me abroad to study for my degree.

To me accounting is the method of keeping accurate financial records and finance management. My name is Josiah James, I am from Nigeria and I was born into a family who gives serious concern to academic excellence and education. My dad is a qualified surgeon and my mother a university lecturer.

I am the first child of my parents and this automatically placed me in a leadership role, because I was mandated to look after my younger siblings when my parents were not around. This has helped me develop my leadership and coordination skills. Growing up I have always been interested in business and finance, partly because I was given the responsibility to always go to the market for shopping. It was my duty to ensure that I took records of what needed to be bought and what the family would need. My mother would only make a minor adjustment to it. My hobbies include cooking, reading, traveling and sport.

As I grew older in life, I discovered it was not just that I am fascinated by the numbers and figures but I always want to give a proper and detailed account of how money was spent. When my other siblings would prefer ice-cream or toys, I would prefer to keep the money received as a gift in my piggy bank. This became very evident as I would take note of how much was spent in buying food stuff and groceries for the household.

By the time I got into the secondary school I was already drafting an expenditure budget for the family. I would make a list of what needs to be bought and carefully take note of what is not relevant. My parents were amazed by my money management skills and would sometimes seek my advice as it related to money management.

In school, I was very interested in accounting and came top in my class twice. During my time in secondary school I took part in various social and sport activities. But I was well known for my active participation in money management and my excellent performance in accounting.

After I graduated from secondary school, I started work in a supermarket as a cashier and a front desk officer. During my time working as a cashier I was able to learn alot about accounting principles that I have not learnt in school. This job also afforded me the opportunity to put into practices what i have learnt concerning book-keeping and how to enter ledgers. I also develop my interpersonal and communication skills.

My work as a cashier further heightened my interest to study accounting and finance in university. Finance is a subject that touches on all human activities and when not properly handled can lead to fraud and mismanagement. Starting from the government and policy makers, to household management and planning, finance is key. I have a good academic standing and records, and can promise to make a great success with a degree in finance and accounting.

Studying in your institution would help me prepare myself for the future, either to work as an independent business owner or to work in any organization or sector. The career options open to someone equipped with a degree in finance and accounting seem very huge and immensely diverse and very attractive. I have always dreamt of schooling in the UK, for the competitive advantage it provides to students.






Finance and Accounting PS7


My name is xxxxxx. I was born in Lagos Nigeria and I am privileged to have attended one of the best high schools in the state. I have always had a strong passion and love for businesses. However, coming also from a business-oriented family, I was greatly influenced by it. Since my primary school I have had a strong inclination toward a career in business and finance.

During my high school I have developed a love for business. With the help of my elder brother and finance from my dad I started an online business where I sells comics and books. My love for business encouraged my dad to set up a micro-blog site for me and my elder brother where we review and write about products that catch our fancy. At school I won an award for a young entrepreneur for my business ingenuity. I became interested in subjects like accounting and commerce.

After graduation from secondary school, I joined my elder brother in help in my daddy importation business. I would escort him to the Tin can Island Port at Apapa, to clear goods that were imported. My involvement in the family business exposes me to the principal of money management.

I have also undertaken various Google Africa online business courses marketing courses where I gained greater insight into digital marketing, SEO, Entrepreneurship, Free market economics and money management. My desire to study finance and accounting is firstly inspired by my love for doing business and secondly because of my love for money management.

I have selected your university to undertake my studies because it is ranked as one of the top reputable universities in the UK. all this information i was able to find out when the African representative of your school visited my high school. During his visit, the brochure of your school was distributed and I was wowed by the facilities present in your school. I still keep the copy of the brochure on my shelf as a souvenir and a reminder of my dream that I would one day study in your institution. Your school is also among the most affordable schools in the UK compared to other schools.

Studying in the UK is safe, and it provides a multicultural, friendly and harmonious society. The high quality of education in the UK is another added advantage and the qualifications from the UK schools are recognized by across the world.






Finance and Accounting PS8


Growing up I have always been fascinated about how business operates, especially the big businesses. My concern has always been how does this business affect the economy. I remember how I would sit over newspapers and focus my attention on the business side of it trying to decipher the index, graphs and figures. In my pursuit to understand the relationship between businesses and the economy. I fell in love with accounting and financial management. I was always intrigued by how the stock market operates. So, I always knew i was made for a career in business management or finance management.

In secondary school my best subjects were commerce, mathematics, accounting and economics. I always pay keen attention whenever the teachers are in classes, I would ask questions to make sure a point is made clear, this further expands my knowledge of the subjects. At home I would approach my neighbour who was studying accounting in the university and ask curious questions about the course and through him I learnt about the subjects that I needed to perform well on if I wanted to pursue a career in finance and accounting. I would sometimes borrow his accounting text books, which he gladly gave me.

At school I became the top of my class in accounting and commerce and the teachers were impressed by my knowledge in accounting and finance. What started as a curiosity to know how business operates, drove me to fall in love with finance management. I am also a football enthusiast and was part of my school football team.

After my secondary school I started giving home tutoring in accounting and mathematics on weekends and worked as a front desk attendant at an estate management company during the weekdays. Though working as a front desk attendant did not get me in contact with accounting in my daily activities, I was able to learn other skills such as customer relations and communication skills. However, I also learnt some principle of working in formal organization.

My desire to study for a degree in finance and accounting, have become a dream I am willing to pursue with utmost vigour and determination. Academically I have the drive and interest to enable me complete the course and acquire the degree. I am positive that a degree in finance and accounting would place me in a better position to operate business and properly and effectively manage finance.

When I am not operating a business a degree in finance and accounting would allow me to seek a job in a different organization. And to add to the benefit is that a degree from the UK and from a prestigious school as yours would give me a considerable advantage over a large number of job seekers because of the value placed on the degree from the UK.

If a prophet had told me earlier in life that i would be chasing a career in finance, i would have found it very difficult to believe because i have always wanted to follow the path of my dad and pursue a career as an educationist. I am a very outspoken person, who has picked interest in a wide range of subjects. I am an avid reader of books from novels, comics, magazines, and newspaper prints. It was very difficult for news or information to pass by without me knowing the details of such information or news. Most people saw me as a polymath because I can easily pick interest in a significant number of subjects and problems and look for a way to solve them.

In my secondary school, I was made the social prefect, with the responsibility to organize and manage the social activities that happen in the school. It was during my time as a social prefect that I started to develop likeness for finance and accounting. As the social perfect i took part in almost all the activities that took place in the school from excursions, to fundraising, to send forth. Some of the activities fell directly on my table, while others I was involved in because I have built a strong relationship with my fellow students and teachers.

In order to keep accurate reports on how funds were expended, I found interest in accounting, spending a better part of the break period going through how money was spent and how more funds could be raised. My diligence to duty made the school management announce me the best performing prefect during our valedictory service.

After i left secondary school i started work as a sales assistant in a confectionary store. My job at the confectionery store made me gain experience in how businesses manage money and I saw how the principles of finance management were applied in the real world.

Working as a sales assistant provided me the opportunity to handle large amounts of money, and see how targets could be met. I also learnt and understood the importance of setting and adjusting financial expectations based on a variety of variables. I also gained the opportunity to improve communication and teamwork skills, especially as it relates to business management. These skills allow me to maintain excellent relationships with customers and colleagues.

The skills I acquired working as a sales assistant and my continued curiosity to learn through reading, have helped me take up and manage other community development responsibilities, where I was entrusted with a large amount of money.

It would be a great privilege to be offered a place of study in your university. I know I am very passionate and thirsty for knowledge. I have over the years come to fall in love with finance and I am driven with determination to build a career in finance and accounting.

Helping my mother to run her cosmetic shop has made me develop love for money management and financial accuracy. My name is Martha James, I am 16 years old, i was born in Lagos and i have lived in Lagos all my life. Although I have visited my village in Anambra a few times.

My mother Mrs James owns a cosmetic shop, with different outlets located in the various areas in Lagos and the biggest of her shop is located at Balogun markets along Badagry expressway. Growing up I have always admired my mother for her strict business sense and she always tells us how she started her cosmetic business in 2006, after she lost her job at an oil company. My mother has always made us understand that money management played a key role in her business success and this I have learnt from her.

Because of my interest in money management at a very early age, I would save every single money that I was given in my piggy bank. By the time I was age ten I had saved enough money to allow me to buy a couple of shares from different companies through the help of my dad who was a share broker. I develop a strong passion for money management and investment. My attitude toward money became very obvious and I was made the financial secretary in my church teens forum. At school I developed a flair for subjects such as mathematics, accounting, commerce and economics and I scored the highest in accounting at my finals in the secondary.

After my secondary school i, started work at one of my mother's cosmetic stores as the account officer and stock keeper. It was my duty to ensure that the daily sales were properly and accurately entered in various ledgers. It was also my responsibility to ensure that stock taking is done daily and I was to send a weekly report to the general manager. Working at my mother's cosmetic shop, I was able to use the skills and knowledge I have learnt from my mom over the years. I also learnt a lot and developed knowledge in financial management and stock keeping.

I believe that my involvement in helping to run my mother's business has taught me a lot about organizational management and time management. I have also developed the ability to face difficulties, financial challenges and address them, without supervision and under pressure.

My passion for financial management and investment is the drive and the motivation I need to acquire a degree in finance and accounting. I believe that a degree in finance would prepare me for a future where I planned to open and manage my own business.

Automotive Engineering PS2


I am a bright and capable student with a serious focus on my career ambitions. However, I recognise that an essential prerequisite for a successful career is an excellent education. My personal qualities include personal commitment to high standards. In respect of self-discipline and attitude to work, a proven ability to make good judgment be creative and innovative, as well as work well under pressure.

I consider enrolling on this course to be a major commitment and investment to my future, one that will not only help to fill my knowledge gap but will also provide me with a platform for the next step in my academic career. It is a degree which I feel will prepare me for success at the highest levels by equipping me with the specialised knowledge.

My favourite subjects at school have always been Maths and Physics and I love finding out how different things work. What excites me about Engineering over pure Maths or Physics is that you can use the science to design and build structures and machines which revolutionise the way we live.

Taking an Engineering degree would give me the skills to pursue my lifetime ambition, to be part of a team, being on the front line of innovation and creating ground breaking machines which will push the boundaries of speed and efficiency. Studying Mechanical Engineering at the university for a year has given me a solid foundation on this course, thus the reason I chose to enrol for a Year 2 entry in B. Eng Automotive Engineering at your school. After having seen your curricular programmes, facilities and international prestige I decided to apply because I have no hesitation that I have to get involved with all that knowledge and experience to achieve the assured future and highly promising career I have always desired.

Finally, I know the MPH program will be demanding, but I am ready to give it my best, for I am dedicated and hardworking to become an Automotive Engineer.




Mechanical Engineering PS3


To the ability to apply what I have learnt in the class room to the outside world, is an aspect of physics and math’s that I practically enjoy.

An example of this was being able to calculate the coefficient of friction between a book and a table by knowing the weight and measuring the angle which it started to move. Then using math’s we could model the situation and workout what will happen if the book was heavier or if we could change the angle of the table. This means practical application of pure science is at the heart of my interests of pursuing the degree in mechanical engineering. Math’s have long being a subject that are endure practically the logical approach to problems applying various techniques to difference situation. Further math’s has allowed me to develop my ability to tackle problems logically as well as further improving my adeptness with numbers.

Alongside developing my interests in the subjects through a better understanding of processes involved, taken physics has also given me the opportunity to better my skills in researching and analyzing data. I have enjoyed the experimental aspect where I have being able to carry out and devise experiment that demonstrate or makes used of the processes that we have being learning about.

My main interest in engineering lies with mechanical engineering steaming from my enthusiasm for cars and absolute passion for motorsport. This passion prompted me to take up go karting as a hubby and provides me with an opportunity to understand the complexity involve in modern machines. Even with something as simple as a go kart very slight changing, such as few degrees of toe in or minimal changes to the gear ratio, can have very significant effect on lap time and handling of the vehicle. Another appreciation I have gain from karting as well as reading motorsport literature is that handle of the vehicle is as important as engine power and I believe this idea is relevant in many aspect of engineering where many factors have to be considered.

Another interesting aspect that is present throughout the field of engineering is the intense competition the demand radical thinking and new concept from engineers in other to stay on top whether it is to increase efficiency in industry or make cars go faster. In perfect example of this was developing as a result of Professor Malcolm Smith from Cambridge University drawing parallels between suspensions system and electrical circuit. On releasing that suspension system had no equivalent to a capacitor his set about developing one. From this concept the J-damper was created for Maclaren and it is now use throughout the F1 grid.





Health Care

Pharmacy


I always natured an interest in the health care profession and I also have a strong desire to work in an environment where I will be able to interact directly with patients.so I decided to a career in the field of pharmacy.

Before embarking upon a degree in pharmacy, I wanted to be aware of potentially what I will getting myself into for the rest of my life.so I decided to started visiting a nearby pharmacy store to discuss with the pharmacist, the pharmacist thought me a lot of things about the field that also helped in narrowing my interest into the field of pharmacy

Am not daunted by the prospect of university life, as matter of fact I am positively looking forward to it. Apart from enhancing my academic abilities I also see it as an opportunity to experience the vibrancy of the student life and to further develop my social and personal skills. ideally I will like to enroll on a degree program that is dynamic, clinically oriented and has strong links to the pharmaceutical companies. This is why I have spent a considerably amount of time looking for a suitable course by reviewing the many different universities and programs on offer. after a lot of searching am pleased to say that your institution meets all my requirement and appear and appear to me to be a great place to continue my higher education

Furthermore, upon visiting the site and campus portal I got a feeling that it will be a very inclusive environment and a great place to study. I feel confident with what I saw on your site that a degree from your university will degree from your university will definitely help kick start my career and will give me a competitive edge when applying for jobs after my graduation.




Health and Social Care PS1


The challenges of basic healthcare have always stared at me in the face based on the fact that I grew up in a rural society in sub-Saharan Africa. The problem of inadequate and inefficient health systems is something that has led to the death of many of the people I know. Having experienced this as a child I have wanted to correct this problem.

My name is Essien Mathew. I grew up in a small village called Ugep in Cross River State of Nigeria. After my Primary school education, I left Ugep to Abuja, the Federal Capital territory of the country. It was during my schooling in Abuja that I further reiterated my passion to pursue a career in health care. During my High school I developed a love for science and health related subjects.

My favourite subject was health science, I would spend hours in the school library, scanning from one health science textbook to another. The knowledge i got through my fascination about health science became very useful when in my senior high school i was elected the health prefect. My duties and responsibilities include to ensure that the school first aid boxes are in good condition, making sure to regularly check for expired drugs and also, I worked with the school physician in attending to sick or injured students.

The prospect of contributing my quota to the healthcare sector and the need to challenge the problems of basic health care problems that I experienced in my early age shape my mind and help me focus my energy toward the study of course in the healthcare sector. After careful consideration and evaluation among the hundreds of schools in the UK, I choose your school as my favourite place where I would love to study in the UK.

Your school has proved over the years to be a hallmark of academic excellence. Testimonies from past students and ratings across the world have shown that your school does not only pay attention to the academic needs of a student, but also helps share the mind of your student to face challenges presented by modern society.

Having the opportunity to interact with a few Alumnus of your prestigious school, I am very optimistic that your school has set a standard that helps build not only academic graduates but policy-makers. This is an advantage that I planned to utilize to achieve a dream of ensuring that the problem of Basic Health care in Nigeria is addressed through the proper use of policy making tools.

It would be a wonderful honour to study in your school and also to study in the UK, putting me in a position to tap from a wide range of knowledge and expertise as it relates to health care. UK has one of the best health care services in the world, schooling in such environment would not just afford me the acquire a respected certificate but also give me the first-hand opportunity to witness its practice






Health and Social Care PS2


Over the years my passion to cater to old people and weak people in my community has grown wider, and I have developed strong passion and love for healthcare and social care after attending different training and seminars that are related to healthcare and social work.

Through these training, I have come to understand that there are serious challenges as it relates to management of old persons' homes in Nigeria. There are relatively few old persons home in Nigeria and many old people are neglected without anybody to cater for them. This has given rise to poor health, sickness and deaths.

In preparation for the university, after i left secondary school, i volunteered at a local old person home, where i have also gained experience in health care and social work. My personal experience at the old persons home has made me believe that I would be well suited to pursue a career in health and social care.

Volunteering at an old person's home has also been an opportunity to know more about social work and the important role it plays in the society. In my community I have continued to play a key role in teaching teens about the role of social work through public outreach. My involvement in social work and health care have presented its own challenges as well as benefits. But because of my passion and love for social work, the challenges are rather avenues to build my personality.

Over the years I have been able to improve my understanding of social work and also developed other skills such as communication, interpersonal relationships and team work that would serve as an added advantage in my future dream as a social worker. In 2019, I was presented with the medal of resilient in my local church for my dedication and involvement in social work.

I look forward to being offered a place of study in your school to enable me expand my knowledge in social care and this would eventually help me in my pursuit of a career within the healthcare sector.

I strongly believe that a degree in health and social care from your school would prepare me well for the task ahead and I would be exposed to a wide network of students from various countries, because your school has become the number one foreign student destination in the UK.





Health and Social Care PS3


The challenges of health and social care in Nigeria is enormous, especially being born in the northern part of the country. The rate of women and children who die from minor treatable diseases is very high and this is largely caused by lack of access to basic health care services. My experience with poor health care service has been a major push for me to pursue a career in health care.

In May 2015, myself and a group of friends were returning from a sport competition when the bus our team was travelling in suddenly swerved off the road as a result of a burst tire, as the driver of the bus trying to gain control of the bus he crashed into a motorcyclist who was also travelling on the road. We rushed the motorcyclist to the nearest health care centre. on getting to the healthcare centre, there were a large number of patients that were awaiting the attention of the doctors and healthcare workers.

Seeing the low number of healthcare workers that were attending to the large number of people I decided that I wanted to be a healthcare worker while I was still in secondary school to help save lives due to that experience.

This experience helped prepare my mind to pursue a career in health care. During my time in secondary school where I was praised for my academic successes in science and health related courses. Upon considerable reflection, the thought of possessing the ability to help others provides me with tremendous internal gratification and offers the feeling that my life’s efforts have been focused in a positive direction.

As a health and social care worker I am prepared to dedicate myself to a career that will see me providing health care services to people. After I left secondary school, I registered into a one-year health care apprenticeship, where I learnt the basics of healthcare services. I was able to have a first-hand experience of how healthcare workers provide services. The knowledge I acquired during my apprenticeship has been very useful to me in my pursuit of a career in health and social care.

Applying to study health and social care in your school is a big goal for and it would be a dream come true. Helping people comes naturally to me and if given the opportunity to study in your school this would further boost my dream.






Health and Social Care PS4


I’ve been asked many times why I wish to become a healthcare worker, even though I have been passionate about healthcare for a long time, I actually didn’t know if I wanted to make it into a career until recently. This was because people saw me more as an engineer because I did exceptionally well in mathematics and physics. However, helping people in distress comes naturally to me and I always feel very satisfied when I have been able to address such distress and this is the type of interaction I want in my future.

I have also always imagined myself as a teacher or an educator. At the end of my secondary school, I came across an article that actually gave direction to my passion for health and social work. Also, I had an experience which further strengthened my resolve to pursue a career in healthcare and social care. I was given the opportunity to visit my paternal grandfather in an old people home in Ikeja, a suburb of Lagos State in Nigeria.

My grandparents have recently relocated from the United State back to Nigeria. Within just a few months of their arrival in Nigeria my grandmother passed away and my granddad opted that he should be sent to an old person home where he would be more comfortable. I paid a visit to my granddad at the old people's home and I saw that there was a need to take care of the weak and elderly ones in the society.

Upon considerable reflection, the thought of possessing the ability to help others, especially the weak and elderly ones provide me with tremendous internal gratification and offers me the feeling that my life’s efforts could be focused in a positive direction.

Becoming a healthcare and social worker would fall well into my natural inclination to always help the weak in the society and I am prepared to dedicate myself, as I have in the past, to achieving this goal.

I have selected your school to undertake my studies because based on statistics, the school is ranked among the top UK university that offer health and Social care as a course. The facilities for my course in your university are excellent and suit my needs. Your school is also ranked among the best and affordable schools for foreign students in the UK. No university in my country offers health and Social care as a degree course, and the few schools that offer related courses lack the facilities to teach the course in detail.




Health and Social Care PS5


From an early age I have possessed an instinctive curiosity and been intrigued by the workings of human health and how health care service can be improved to reduce death and promote healthy living. The relationship between the underlying biological phenomena and the effects brought about by such mechanisms have always fascinated me. It was not until my cousin died of High fever (Hyperpyrexia) that the concern for good and effective health care became a passion.

Ayo was my favourite cousin and we have both attended both primary schools and we were attending the same high school when he died. Ayo was just a month my senior, and for our looks one could have mistaken us for twins. When the news of his death broke on the evening of that Sunday, I was confused because we both attended school on Friday and Ayo looked quite okay, though he had complained of a mild headache on our way from school.

My mother later revealed that on getting home Ayo had developed a fever, as usual the mother gave him some drugs to reduce the fever. On Saturday, Ayo had developed a high fever (Hyperpyrexia) and he was rushed to the local community health center. However, on getting there was no doctor to attend to him and the few nurses on ground were very busy attending to the large number of patients that were at the clinics. Ayo was transported to another hospital, this time a private health center.

The nurses on duty administer some first aid treatment to reduce the fever before the arrival of the doctor. Unfortunately, the next day Ayo died with the doctor revealing that the drugs that the mother had given him had caused more damage and this made the high fever (Hyperpyrexia) had already affected him.

The death of Ayo re-shaped my outlook to live and drove my new resolve to have a career in Health care. I was determined to ensure that enough enlightenment needed to be carried out that people are aware of the dangers of self-medications and how avoidance could prevent avoidable deaths such as that of my cousin. Also, there is an urgent need to have more efficient hands in the Nigeria Health care sectors, to reduce the number of patients who have to depend on few health care workers.

After graduation from high school, I have volunteered with a number of non-governmental organizations that deal with healthcare. During this time, I have been able to sharpen my knowledge as it relates to health care and social welfare. I have discovered myself that I thrive upon challenging situations and enjoy the prospect of both helping others with health-related challenges. So, I feel it is a career that will allow me to combine and utilise my passion, drive and willingness to ensure health care is available to a larger population.

Your institution is my school of choice because after scanning through a large number of schools in the UK, your school provides a good curriculum and eminent professors at my disposal to learn with. Also considering its well ranked position amongst other universities, 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.




Health and Social Care PS6


Growing up in Enugu, South-East Nigeria i have always wanted to pursue a career in healthcare, but I had yet to decide in what area and field of healthcare i would want to go into. However, in the summer of 2017 during my third year in high school, my dad fell sick and the responsibility to take care of him fell upon me as my mum was away in Canada for her Dissertation.

During this period, I became very close to many of the aged people admitted at the hospital where my dad was also admitted. For the 3 weeks that my dad was admitted in the hospital I came to understand the importance of healthcare and the very damaging result of not monitoring your health. I found myself attached to the need to want to take care of the elderly ones and those people having various health challenges.

This experience and compassion I felt toward sick persons serves as my new motivation to pursue a career in health care. In order to have more knowledge as it relates to healthcare service, I took part in various volunteering activities that saw me visit many aged persons home and people with disabilities. In my high school I joined the Red Cross Society.

As an active member of the Red Cross Society, I took part in various volunteering activities and also learnt a lot of first aid and rescue skills. Following graduation from high school, I worked as an assistant lab technician, where I gained exposure to lab operations. I had minimal knowledge of healthcare which i have learnt as a Red cross volunteer, but I was determined to succeed and pushed myself to constantly learn.

I am excited to apply to your school where I plan to hone my skills and passion in healthcare and social care. I am also excited to share my passion, knowledge and skills for social care which I have acquired as a result of my curiosity. I am willing to share these skills through networking with other students from other parts of the world. I also inspire to learn from people of other cultures and races.

A degree in Health and Social care from your school would help me pursue a career in healthcare.






Health and Social Care PS7


The neglect of old people in our society is on the rise and this has called for concern. With the increase in living cost, most families have decided to abandon their old people in the villages without proper welfare or social care, the government also is not doing enough to address this major health and social challenge. As a young boy, I have always been close to my grandparents and I lived most of my early age under their care.

Most of my understanding on the general outlook of life, I learnt from my grandfather and grandmother until they both passed away in 2016 and 2018 respectively. However, I have come to understand that a large number of old people after their active years are relegated to the back seat in society and there is not enough adequate social care in place to take care of them. Many of these old people are made to fend for themselves. The abandonment has shown to contribute immensely to the deaths of our senior citizens.

After my high school I have volunteered in various organizations that focus on the welfare of elderly people in the society. During my time as a volunteer I have acquired knowledge in welfare, social care and health care services. In preparation for a career in health and social care, I have gained experience of interacting with patients suffering from dementias and other age-related disorders. As a volunteer in this field I have had the opportunity to spend a few hours each weekend listening and chatting to old people who have been abandoned by their children.

The old people's homes in my country are either too few or are far away in the cities. It has become a matter of urgency that old people's social centers where these old people could keep each other company in a healthy environment should be developed in villages to help attend to the needs of senior citizens. The need to change this has driven my passion to earn a degree in health and social care, with my concern focusing more on caring for the old and aged people in the society. I have resolved to help in addressing this society problem.

Passion alone cannot make it work with a sound academic knowledge. After undergoing an academic journey through your university, I feel certain I will be of immediate value in helping to reduce the costly demands of basic health care services, especially as it relates to catering for the old people in the society. Moreover, I can bring to the table solid capabilities in the fields of preparing court documents, developing care plans and putting together community care packages.

Apart from my ability to deal with complex problems, I am also an expert at helping people to manage themselves on a day to day basis and thereby encouraging them to lead more independent lives. In addition to this I possess up-to-date knowledge of children as well as adult behavioural development.




Health and Social Care PS8


My name is Smith, I was born in Lagos and I grew up in Lagos. I attended St Mary High school and developed interest in social welfare and health care. My decision to get a Degree in health and social care is as a result of my enthusiasm, love and passion to contribute towards issues affecting the health sector of my country Nigeria and Africa at large.

Over the years, I have read about the challenges of healthcare and social welfare in Nigeria, partly stimulated by my desires to work in the health care sector. The Nigeria health care topic is a fascinating topic for me, not just due to my heritage, but because of the juxtaposition between rapid decrease in standard of health services in one hand and the Sub-Saharan African levels of poverty on the other.

In studying this course, I hope to obtain a Degree in Health and Social care, so that I may put my knowledge into practice and work as a health care worker. I hope to gain meaningful insights into the importance of welfare and healthcare development before applying to study for a master's degree in Dementia studies. Considering the problem of dementia cases among old people and because I possessed an instinctive curiosity and I am intrigued by the workings of the human mind.

I thrive upon challenging situations and enjoy the prospect of both helping others and variety in the day ahead, so feel it is a career that will allow me to combine and utilise my hard-working nature as well as my academic passions.

I have selected your school to undertake my studies because based on available information and statistics from the UK, your school is ranked among the top UK universities that offer health and Social care as a course. The facilities for my course in your university are excellent and suit my needs.

Your school is also ranked among the best and affordable schools for foreign students in the UK. No university in my country offers health and Social care as a degree course, and the few schools that offer related courses lack the facilities to teach the course in detail.

Your school would be a unique place for me to acquire the skills and academic training needed 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 this would create an opening for me to impact the health sector in country positively, especially as it relates to social care and welfare.






Health and Social Care PS9


Over the years, I have read about the challenges of healthcare and social welfare in Nigeria and Africa. This has stimulated my desires to work in the healthcare sector. The Nigeria health care industry has always fascinated me not just due to my heritage as a Nigerian, but because of the relationship between the decrease in the quality of the standard of health services on one hand and the rising poverty level on the other hand.

Growing up I have paid active attention to childcare, people with disabilities, weak and vulnerable ones in the societies. Since my time in high school I have dedicated a lot of my time to volunteering and helping the weak and vulnerable people in the society. To further increase my knowledge on social care and being fascinated by the people i have worked with in the field during volunteering i have completed various online courses as it relates to social welfare and health care and it has helped to broaden my knowledge of working with people and also how to approach children and adults with disabilities.

Currently, I work in my mother drug store as a sales assistant. I have also learnt a lot as regard to communication and interaction with sick people. I have also learned a lot about drugs from the pharmacist that attends to sick people in my mother's drug stores. During my spare time I've researched the job role and requirements for health care specialists and how to become one. My hobbies include volunteering, traveling, sports and reading.

Throughout my volunteering years I have gained valuable experience of dealing with old people, children with disabilities, children with autism, deaf and blind people and people with special needs children. While this was very challenging, I also found it an extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience. I am looking forward to this valuable experience as it will further consolidate my desire to study health insurance and social care

I believe that a university degree in health and social care is definitely the right path for me personally. I am always working extremely hard to attain the best I can, a feat that I intend to carry on throughout my university years. I am very positive that a university degree would help me gain a good job in the health and social care sector.

Schooling in the UK, would be a major boost to my career as a healthcare worker. It is an indisputable fact that qualifications from the UK are recognized in many countries around the world. Your school would provide me with the much-needed academic platform necessary to grow a career in health and social care. Based on my finding your school is equipped with qualitative learning facilities and faculty.







Health and Social Care PS10


I have decided to take up a degree in Health and social care, firstly because i am currently working in my country Nigeria as a Nurse. I am a trained nurse with 3 years working experience. After my high school education, I proceeded to do a course in Nursing, and being a nurse has fascinated me, seeing myself offering help to individuals who are facing problems such as simple sickness.

Secondly, I have always sought the need to alleviate myself academically and thirdly, I have done personal study on the subject of health and social care which I have enjoyed reading around in periodicals and journals. These factors have further fuelled my fascination to gain a far more depth knowledge of working with different types of people and their problems.

As a nurse I have witnessed first-hand the challenges of the dwelling health care system and the unique problem it poses. This is another reason I want to do this course because i have some connection with the problem that I will be facing as a health and social care expert. It won't come as a surprise to me unlike starters because I understand that in social care you work with people who are hard to handle especially youngsters.

I have always been passionate about care which was why I went into the field of nursing in the first place and becoming a social worker now would allow me to fulfil my ambitions.

The skills and knowledge I have acquired as a nurse and over the 3 years period I have worked as a nurse would be a boost to my career as a social health care worker. I have also developed skills in communication, teamwork and effective time management.

Personally, I think I have the required skills to pursue a career as a health care social worker. However, I love to go to university to help develop my skills even more therefore I can gain a good job in the health and social care sector which is definitely my main interest.

My choice to study in the United Kingdom is born out of the need to open my eyes to a more advanced learning environment. And to also obtain a qualification that could help me seek jobs in many countries across the world. Studying in the Uk is also an avenue to meet a lot of people from various countries with which i could share my ideas.

Your school has been labelled the number of destinations for foreign students due to its friendly study environment and affordable fees. Also considering that your school is well ranked amongst other universities in the UK.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.







Environment






IT & Computing

Computer Science & Software Engineering


From an early age I’ve always developed a keen interest in computing and engineering endeavors. My interest was further facilitated when I accompanied my dad to his company where he introduced me to the computer systems as well as educate me on the rudimentary knowledge of computer Science & Software Engineering. I can always remember the feeling of wanting to know more than just the elementary knowledge of computer as well as getting involved in the engineering application of computer processes.

This interest never left me, only growing more profound and passionate with every new discovery I made. From communicating with an artificial intelligence to seeing the wonders of the Internet for the first time, computers have left me fascinated with just how much power yet mystery they hold.

The A-Levels I chose to study have all helped me to develop both myself and my understanding of the subject. Physics for example has helped me to understand how certain parts of a computer function, while Computing has given me a greater insight into the business aspects of the computer industry.
Chemistry and Physics have both helped to improve my analytical and evaluative skills. Within mathematics I have been lucky enough to have a teacher who was very interested in computer science. He has been especially helpful, lending me books such as Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid. This has given me an insight into the richness that is computer science.

My interest in computing has not been restricted to only the classroom experience, it has further extended to working in my father’s establishment as a computer engineer and IT analyst.
Throughout my period of working as a computer engineer and an IT analyst in my father’s firm, the organization has experienced tremendous progress and appreciable height both in the organizational capacity and in the monetary aspect.

Based on this development, I have decided to further enhance my skill, knowledge, ability and expertise to enroll as a student in the University of Bedfordshire so as to acquire all it takes to make my dreams and aspiration a complete and organized reality. It would also serve as an opportunity to meet with other intellectuals and share knowledge and experience in computer Science & Software Engineering.
I also enjoy both playing and watching tennis. I’ve played in various competitions before, and have helped to umpire junior matches at my club. To ensure that I can fit everything in I’ve had to develop very good time management, prioritizing what I need to do efficiently.

I decided to embark on studying in the UK because I am aware that the education system in the United Kingdom is of high value and is highly regarded by many employers in Nigeria. Also gaining experience from the UK would increase, my profile and boost my knowledge in my discipline.

University of Bedfordshire was my preferred institution as it was recommended to me by a representative who made an intense presentation to my father on how good the school is as well as the cost of living in Luton which is said to be fair enough and less expensive. I am also aware that the school is known for having different international students from various countries which apparently would be of advantage to me to have experience in diverse cultures.

I’m looking forward with great anticipation to the challenges that studying for a degree in computer system engineering.




Computer Science


From an early age, I have always wondered what happened in a computer beyond the basic and everyday use of Microsoft office, web search, movie player and so on. This is what everyday computer users do with their computers perhaps 75% of the average users just see a computer and 25% use the graphical user interfaces. The first time my dad introduced me to the functionalities of such interfaces, I was intrigued with the complexities involved behind coding, the theory behind them, and the methodology of how they infact work. Since then, it became my motive to further my education in computer science as I picked a strong interest in this field.

I completed my secondary school education in Capital Science Academy, Nigeria, where I studied sciences as my major and took the WAEC for further progression of my studies to University of Essex. I have just completed a foundation programme with University of Essex with an overall pass average in all the courses, however deficient with just three marks to the module aggregate in Computer and Electronics.

I believe I have identified the root cause of such deficiency in such a short period because of the impact it has on me and I can say with absolute confidence the knowledge I have acquired on the preliminary and basic introduction to computer science, will aid my transition at University of Bedfordshire.

Thus, I wish to further my education at Bedfordshire also because of the variety of course options such as the software entrepreneurship aspect you get along with the computing honours, and the positive feedbacks I got from a friend who attended Bedfordshire.

The University also provides great facilities to accommodate my social, recreational and health lifestyle, as I am very active with sports.

Most importantly, I believe it would be a dream come true if given the opportunity to further my education in computer science in an institution with such high academic standards and unique accelerated course enhancement. I am also looking forward to the inevitable challenges of University life whilst maintaining an open mind to the opportunity of exceeding all boundaries of obstacles in the field I am so passionate about.

I have chosen to study at the University of Bedfordshire because I believe the institution has everything to offer in terms of academics and tendency for employability. At the end of my studies I would return back to Nigeria to embark on the one year compulsory Government service duty known as NYSC and after that proceed to work for one of the oil and gas firms within the IT department.

I am very certain of remaining at the University of Bedfordshire to complete my undergraduate degree based on the fact that the culture of academics and customer service I have received as well as heard about the institution gives me that delight and confidence that I would enjoy my stay with the school.




Computer Engineering


Computers and technology in general have always fascinated me, even from a very young age. My flair for computer began when my aunty gave me my first computer when I was 7, I began from playing of games to learning how my cousin edited her videos . I remember that I didn’t know how to use it well but I was so determined to learn everything about it, I had to teach myself experimenting with different options and i knew there was still much to be discovered. The more i used the computer the more i wanted to know more because it intrigued me to know how these interfaces worked.

With time my love for technology and computers grew so much. I would always get awards in my elementary and secondary school for mathematics and computer. My love for mathematics was mainly because my maths teacher once told me that computer will not exist without maths and for that reason I developed an internet in mathematics.

As I grew older, I saw the advance state if illiteracy in my country, how people were computer illiterate to do the needful especially in our computer age, that alone put more fuel into my fire of passion for computer. I was now more determined and had a drive for this course of study. I wanted to learn more about it so i would be able to develop my country even more.

Sadly for me, the computer engineering in my country wasn’t that good. It wasn’t a course that much importance was placed on.

In future I hope my interest in computers will enable me to become a computer engineer.




Computing


I have found the field of computing very interesting and rewarding in this sense. As long as I can remember, I have always strived to better my understanding about the things around me. The area computing first caught my interest between my late primary and early secondary school education. At that time a cousin of mine just finished from the university and he happened to study computer science. Every time he sits on the computer, am always fascinated and exited to watch what he does from WED creation, graphic designing and programming.

He saw how interested in computing in I was and he started putting me through some aspect of computing. I found graphic designing more fun and love it. I started using Corel draw, power point, photoshop, page maker and lot more. I also learnt typing with Mavis beacon teaching typing. From this point, my love for computer related field kept growing.

Since I have been introduced to various aspect of computing, I have been engulfed by its pristinely methodical procedure. Creating flyers and working programs from the scratch only using my knowledge. At senior secondary school level, I got even more exposure to computing and I took my mathematics and physics quite serious as I already choose and career path to go in higher institution.

After senior secondary school, I also enrolled in Lagos city polytechnic national diploma program to study computer science. In my first year, i have learnt the basics of computer science. I decided to go deeper into the field. I feel my skill will be very relevant in that area. I want to not only discover a problem but also be able to create a solution to the problem.

This experience has proved an invaluable insight into the fascinating yet frustrating world of research and has motivated me in my thirst for knowledge and success.

I choose to study at your University because talent are been nurture and create knowledge that shapes communities all round the world. The university research provides solutions to society challenges. The graduate leave ready for the workplace and wide ranging links with employers and business.

Speaking has always been another part of my life since I was 9 and have grown up now to become a public speaker and writer which contributes to enhancing problem solution and leadership skill. In Lagos City Polytechnic where i would round up my National Diploma programme by August, i hold the position of the class Governor and also the fellowship President and drama cordinator. In the previous year, i have also served as the Governor or my depertmant, Technical coordinator and assistant music director in the Fellowship and school. is fair to say everything I do, I do for a reason, to improve myself. I am competitive and always looking for new experiences and challenges to stretch my limits. With this in mind, I am looking to the opportunity to study Computer Science at undergraduate level at your university.





Law

LLB 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 Lagos State Nigeria to gain first-hand experience of a complex and serious murder 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 Bedfordshire was my chosen choice due to its proximity to London, 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.

Art & Media

Media and Communications


I am hoping to read Media and Communications degree. I find it remarkable, inspiring and a little bit frightening how the media exercise control over our lives, whilst offering rich cultural rewards. I am fascinated by the action and effects of human communications of all kinds and am keen to extend the insight I have gained so far.
My interest in the subject began during my secondary school education and my knowledge of the subject area has expanded. My other A-levels are English Language, and Religious knowledge have me a broad overview of life and human communications and culture. An example of how these subjects support each other would be studying the marxist concept of hegemony and applying it to religion, media ownership, the high culture/low culture debate in sociology and even the bourgeois emphasis on Standard English.


I've slowly been gaining practical experience alongside my academic learning. Two years ago, I was lucky enough to get a one-week experience with a television crew on location as a runner. I learnt the value of working as a member of the team in a stressful environment and I gained an understanding of the processes of TV production. I have also been involved in several other media projects, some as coursework and others undertaken independently. Coursework projects have included a magazine for young male teenagers; designing a product and advertising campaign; and producing, directing and presenting a documentary for students and their parents during my secondary school. As extra-curricular activities, I designed a poster and Internet campaign for one of the school plays and in the absence of any existing school publication, I launched a bimonthly newsletter, aimed at South East students. These projects have provided great learning experiences, enabling me to develop print software skills in a creative way.


Other school activities have included, the lead female role in ‘Things fall apart’ and significant roles in 'Oliver' and 'West Side Story' as well as assisting the Performing Arts A-level group perform their comedy show. By playing roles on stage, my confidence has increased and I have learnt to appreciate and learn from the talents of others. I am also a school prefect, which I find satisfying and a great privilege.

Studying in the United Kingdom has been one of my dreams and I believe that obtaining a degree from the UK would give me better edge when I graduate.




Media and Production


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 different societies have and how different cultures can find different things offensive. English Language reinforces the idea of audience importance with looking at how to apply different writing styles to suit the audience and context such as for a radio programme. I also enjoyed learning about children’s language development and how the media can have an impact on the way their linguistic skills develop.

I did a week of work experience at a media house gaining some experience in photography where I learnt about creating educational booklets for school visits, lighting and audio for productions and front of house interaction. I also took part in a film review task that was to be published in the local paper.

My extracurricular activities include reading a wide range of publications such as local and national papers and music magazines as well as reading autobiographies and some fiction.

Studying in the UK would give me a better edge than my colleagues in Nigeria and would place me at fore front of employers’ favourite. The system of education in the UK is apparently similar to that of Nigeria. I have chosen the University of Bedfordshire due to the positive comments I have received by most and also the University is located in the city which is not too far from London. I hope to use this course in establishing my own business in the future.

English Language reinforces the idea of audience importance with looking at how to apply different writing styles to suit the audience and context such as for a radio programme. I also enjoyed learning about children’s language development and how the media can have an impact on the way their linguistic skills develop.

I did a week of work experience at a media house gaining some experience in photography where I learnt about creating educational booklets for school visits, lighting and audio for productions and front of house interaction. I also took part in a film review task that was to be published in the local paper.

My extracurricular activities include reading a wide range of publications such as local and national papers and music magazines as well as reading autobiographies and some fiction.

Studying in the UK would give me a better edge than my colleagues in Nigeria and would place me at fore front of employers’ favourite. The system of education in the UK is apparently similar to that of Nigeria. I have chosen the University of Bedfordshire due to the positive comments I have received by most and also the University is located in the city which is not too far from London. I hope to use this course in establishing my own business in the future.

Economics PS11


Economics is the study of how societies, governments, businesses, households and individuals allocate their scarce resources, the nature and discipline of economics has inspired me to study the subject at a higher level.

I possess a strong mathematical background and believe that I am capable and well equipped to face the challenges of studying economics at a degree level.

While choosing the course to take on in the university, I noted down 3 different business courses that I really wanted to pursue a career on.

Out of all courses, I picked the one that will give me a generalist understanding of the world and its inner workings, provide me with a variety of interesting modules, give me the freedom to combine my economics degree with another passion or interest, turn me into an excellent graduate prospect and at the end have the ability to benefit from the graduate salary advantage of an economics degree holder.

During my research process, deciding on if economics was the course for me pulled me closer to the course because I have a better understanding on what I am getting into and I know the mental readiness required to approach it.

Studying economics requires a lot of concentration and effort throughout the year, I’m confident in my ability to eventually have a career from studying this course.




Business and Economics PS1


Growing up in Onitsha the Anambra state capital in Nigeria I have always been fascinated about how business operates, especially the big businesses. My concern has always been how does this business affect the economy. I remember how I would sit over newspapers and focus my attention on the business side of it trying to decipher the index, graphs and figures.

Anambra hosts some of the biggest markets in Nigeria, and the popular Onitsha market is arguably the largest commercial market in the eastern part of the country. Because I was always fascinated with understanding the relationship between the economy and the roles of businesses, I grew and developed interest in pursuing a career in business economics.

In secondary school I developed interest in the following subjects such as: commerce, mathematics, accounting and economics. I always pay close attention whenever the teachers are in classes, I would ask questions to make sure a point is made clear, this further expands my knowledge of the subjects. At home I would approach my neighbour who has a store at the Onitsha market and ask questions as it relates to the various commercial activities that take place in the market.

Through this I learnt about the concept of import and exports. In my pursuit to understand the relationship between businesses and the economy, I fell in love with accounting and financial management. I was always intrigued by how the stock market operates.

At school I became the top of my class in accounting and commerce and the teachers were impressed by my knowledge in accounting and finance. What started as a curiosity to know how business operations affect the economy, drove me to fall in love with finance management.

After my secondary school I told my parents that I wanted to understand the concept of trading and buying and selling. I was put into the care of my Ndubuisi who has a number of shops inside the Onitsha market as an apprentice. During my time as an apprentice i learnt a lot about business management, I was able to learn other skills such as customer relations and communication skills. However, I also learnt some principles of working in an informal organization.

My desire to study for a degree in business economics is based on the fact that I see business as the most essential part of the economy and understanding this relationship has become a dream, I am willing to pursue with the utmost vigour and determination.

Given the opportunity to study in your school would provide me with the right exposure and environment to study without distraction. A degree from a prestigious school like yours would give me a considerable advantage over a large number of business managers because of the quality of education offered at your school. Also, the value placed on the degree from the UK would further boost my chances of creating a network of business partners across the world.




Business and Economics PS2


I know I have the potential to pursue a career in business economics and if I am given the opportunity to study at degree level, this will help me achieve my aspiration to build a career in the field of economic and business management. Starting from a young age I have developed a passion and enthusiasm for economics, often finding myself discussing the decisions of large corporate companies with my class teachers. I was also very fascinated with analysing decisions made by companies and how they are affecting the generality of the economy

My fascination with economic metrics intrigues my teachers and this played a great role in why I was made the school deputy senior prefect. In school he developed interest in subjects such as mathematics and economics. In my 4th and 5th year in secondary school I was the best student in mathematics. I represented the school in many mathematics competitions where I have won several medals. During my senior secondary school certificate examination, I came out as one of the best students, with distinction in mathematics.

Business Economics is a subject that has always caught my fancy. The subject has always got me thinking about the correlation between economy and business management. After my secondary school, instead of sitting at home doing nothing, I told my parents that I needed to work in a real business environment to expose me to the intrigues of doing business and money management.

Though my parents were a bit reluctant at first, they were sceptical that working would distract me from my academics. However, after persuasion from me, they agreed that I should work in an environment that would help me develop and expand my understanding of the economy.

Through my dad I got a job in a financial analysis company as an office attendant. The job offered me the opportunity to see how stocks are bought and sold. I came to a real-life application of market analysis and this further opened me up to want to know more. I saw the real application of financial understanding in real life situations, particularly within businesses and large companies. This fast-paced environment fascinated me and further increased my desire to expand my knowledge of the subject regarding business economics.

Studying in the UK has always caught my fancy and parents were determined to support me academically to any level I wanted. When I told them that I wish to study for my degree in the UK, they readily accepted. The UK is known for its high standard of education and across the world recognition is given to qualification obtained from the UK. I am convinced that your school provides the best study environment in the UK. After taking my time to go through your school's robust academic curriculum, it was easy for me to make a choice.




Business and Economics PS3


Business Economics has always fascinated me. Having an elder brother who studied for a degree in Economics and Business management, I was easily influenced by his constant analysis of market trends and the key economic performance. I remember how I would sneak into his room to go through his books and class works. As I grew older, I realized that I could easily understand other markets' trends.

My name is Mariam Felix, i was born in Lagos Nigeria. Lagos is easily identified as the commercial capital of Nigeria, and it was easy for anybody born in the city to have strong affinity towards business and economic activities and this was also my case. By the time I got into secondary school, I already had a strong love for business. I regularly accompany my mother to her fresh fruit store and I understood how the business was done and this also provided an opportunity to understand the various levels of agricultural business and how it affects the economy.

I learnt the skills of money management and distribution, back with knowledge I constantly get from my elder brother, I fell in love with business economics. In my secondary school, I developed interest in subjects such as commerce, economics and maths. Although I have love for business, this did not stop me from getting involved in other social activities. I was actively involved in sporting activities, even becoming a member of the school female football team. My hobbies are reading, analysing data and networking.

After my secondary school, I started to work in my mother's fruit stores. My work here builds my knowledge of business management. Understanding the agricultural chain value, helps me see that everybody plays a key role in the economy. I also built my coordination skills and my business relationship skill. Working in the store helped me to further push my desire to build a career that seeks to understand the metrics of business and the economy. Furthermore, I believe the skills I have acquired through reading, working in my mother’s fruit store and through my extra-curricular interests will make me a capable and successful business economics student.

I am also very positive that your school would offer me the best ground to further develop this interest and achieve a blooming career in business economics. Going by testimonies from your school, your school brings practical solutions to problems in an academically friendly environment.

The availability of on campus scholarships for foreign students, among other factors attracted me to your school. I am very positive that the scholarship programs would serve as motivational tools to help me pursue academic excellence.









Business and Economics PS4


Understanding of the economy and how businesses are run is something I have always been interested in. This could be due to the fact that I was born into a family that was business driven. My dad is a businessman whose focus is in the imports of exotic cars. My mother is a private financial business analyst, who has worked with several multinational companies both within and outside Nigeria. I have always wanted to be a financial business analyst as my mum because i was always fascinated by the way she easily understood economics metrics and finance.

As a young boy, I fell in love with Arithmetic and mathematics and I could easily solve difficult problems and I also have eyes for money management. My hobbies include reading, traveling, writing, and playing football. I have always had the objective to write a book on business and finance, this objective was borne out of what i have learnt from my parents as regards to business and finance management.

In secondary school, I was greatly involved in social activities, but this never distracted me from my academic work as I was always top of my class when it comes to subjects like mathematics and economics. I was also a member of the school debating team and I have represented my school in many debating tournaments in Lagos state. The activities that I was involved in in secondary school helped me develop and build my self-confidence and my interaction skills.

After my secondary school I went to join in the management of my father's automobile import business. Real life everyday business life gave me the opportunity to try out some business tricks and financial skills I have learnt and read about. I saw that there was some level of difference from theory to practical experience, there was a lot for me to learn. If I wish to build a successful career in business economics, there is a need for me to acquire adequate knowledge in the field and this has also promoted my desire to pursue a degree in business economics.

I have selected your school after careful research to undertake my studies and obtain my degree because based on statistics, the school is ranked among the top UK university that offer business economics as a degree course. Your school is also ranked among the best and affordable schools for foreign students in the UK. I am also very positive that your school would offer me the best ground to further develop my interest in business economics.






Business and Economics PS5


Growing up I have always been fascinated about how business operates, especially the big businesses. My concern has always been how does this business affect the economy. I remember how I would sit over newspapers and focus my attention on the business side of it trying to decipher the index, graphs and figures. In my pursuit to understand the relationship between businesses and the economy. I was always intrigued by how the stock market operates. So, I always knew I was made for a career in business management or finance management.

But my parents had always thought otherwise. My mother has always wished for me to pursue a career in the medical field, while my dad was determined that I should aim for a career in engineering. The inability for both of them to come to an agreeable course for me helped me. I stuck with my career in finance and I was willing to prove to them that this was my dream career.

In secondary school my best subjects were commerce, mathematics, accounting and economics. I always pay keen attention whenever the teachers are in classes, I would ask questions to make sure a point is made clear, this further expands my knowledge of the subjects. At home I would research about the economy, business, finance and management. I would spend time going through stock markets reports which I have obtained from newspapers or printed from the internet.

At school I became the top of my class in mathematics, accounting and commerce and the teachers were impressed by my knowledge in subjects that are related to finance and calculations. I developed interest in money management and how businesses are managed. I can remember that I was in my 4th class in secondary school when I started to learn various internet trading such as Forex and Stock Market Trading.

By the time I graduated from secondary school I had acquired enough knowledge in Forex trade and I started trading in Forex with the help of my neighbour who was a Forex expert, I created my own Forex account. I also bought shares in the stock market. My parents were greatly impressed by my resolve and determination to pursue a career in the field of finance, economics and business. Over the years through reading and surfing the internet, I have learnt a lot about financial analysis.

My desire to study for a degree in business economics is a dream I am willing to pursue with utmost vigour and determination. Academically I have the drive and interest to enable me complete the course and acquire the degree. I am positive that a degree in business economics would place me in a better position to operate business properly and effectively manage finance.

When I am not operating my personal business which I aim to, a degree in business economics from your school would allow me to seek a good job as a financial analyst anyway around the world. A degree from the UK and from a prestigious school as yours, would give me a considerable advantage over a large number of job seekers because of the value placed on the degree from the UK.

As I grew older in life, I discovered it was not just that I am fascinated by the numbers and figures but I always wanted to know how every money earned and spent have a lasting effect on the economy at large. I was very detailed with money usage, always keeping a detailed account of how I spent money when my other siblings would prefer kids’ luxuries such as toys and ice-creams, I prefer to none of those stuff.

I would make a list of what needs to be bought and carefully take note of what is not relevant and those that are important. My parents were amazed by my money management skills and would sometimes seek my advice as it related to money management.

In secondary school, I was very interested in mathematics and accounting and I came top in my class twice in accounting. I was also a passionate chess player, representing the school's various chess competitions within and outside the state. I realize that playing chess games helped me develop keen eyes for problem solving. Aside from playing chess, I also took part in various social activities and these made me very popular amongst my peers.

After I graduated from secondary school, I started work in a supermarket as a front desk attendant. During my time working as a front desk attendant I was able to learn about some basic business principles. This job also afforded me the opportunity to put into practice the money management skills that i have developed. I also develop my interpersonal and communication skills.

My work as a front desk attendant further heightened my interest to study business economics in university. I have learnt over the years that finance is a subject that touches on all human activities and when not properly handled can lead to fraud and mismanagement. And the ripple effect would also affect the economy at large as such it is important that from the government, policy makers, multinational companies, to households every single decision that is taken has an underlying effect on the general economy. Management, planning and finance is key.

A career in business economics would not serve me alone, the knowledge I acquire would help solve serious financial problems that affect the economy, i would be in a better position to advise large companies, government and policy makers on the right economic policies. Studying in your institution would help me prepare myself for the future, either to work as an independent business owner or to work in any organization or sector.

The career options open to someone equipped with a degree in business economics seem very huge and immensely diverse and very attractive. I have always dreamt of schooling in the UK, for the competitive advantage it provides to students. Your school over the years has produced some of the best financial analysts around the world. I hope my application will be given a favourable consideration.

Having a very disciplined parent has really helped me as an individual. My parents have instilled in me and my siblings the spirit of discipline, inquiry mind, critical thinking and willingness to face and tackle a problem. Although my parents were very disciplined, they made sure we got the best and they were open to share our problems. As the first son of my Parents, me and my dad, a stock broker, would spend long hours discussing contemporary business and economics issues. My dad was always willing to teach and share with us his wide expertise in the stock market.

My mother on the other hand was an event planner and a business owner. She would share ideas with us through daily conversations especially as it relates to her business. we would discuss new business ideas and how effective it was, looking at the targeted clients at the best possible cost of providing the service. These experiences and interactions that I have always had with my parents raised questions in my mind about the concepts of effectively managing the business while also positively contributing to the economy.

Over the years I have come to realize that the economy of a nation is driven by micro business, just as it is driven by big businesses. Therefore, government policies must cut across all strata and such policies should not be to the detriment of the small businesses. Theoretically, policies should be designed to achieve economic prosperity and high levels of contentment. However, in reality, I think governments act in the interest of the large businesses rather than to the interest of general publics.

During my time in secondary school I found the knowledge I learnt from my parents very handy. I was very disciplined, spoke for others as well as acquiring responsibility, commitment and leadership. In my academic work I gave my best and these factors played a key part in why I was elected as the deputy senior prefect. I developed strong numerical and analytical skills and this helped me in subjects such as mathematics and physics.

After I graduated from my secondary school, I assisted my mother in her event planning business. The nature of the business helped challenge my creative and problem-solving skills. I have also attended various seminars that relate to the economy and I have come to understand that there is a lot to learn as it relates to the economy.

I am convinced that a degree in business economics will provide me with the capability to probe and eventually answer the questions raised in this ever-changing business driven world.

Since 2012, after the fuel subsidy crisis, I started to understand that economics is one of the most important subjects in today's world. The 2012 fuels subsidy crisis made me understand how a change in price of a commodity can affect the other areas of the economy. I remember asking my dad why are people bothered with the removal of the fuel subsidy and he told me how every area of the economy is tied to the price of fuel. He said a sharp increase in the fuel price with the removal of the subsidy by the government would mean the price of every commodity would also jump.

In order to further understand this phenomenon, I started to research on my own, by reading and surfing the internet. I wanted to satisfy my curiosity, because I was confused on why people were that bothers with the increase in fuel price. I have acquired some basic knowledge of the ways in which numerous issues, such as measuring a country's standard of living, or determining what causes households to save and invest.

However, the need to properly understand the principles guiding economics and what are the cause and the effect of government policies on the economy has pushed me to pursue a career in business economics. I have developed interest in mathematics and economics and this subject has helped me to develop problem solving capabilities.

I have also developed other hobbies especially playing musical instruments. In my own time, I play acoustic guitar, drums, piano and tambourine. I also like to develop interest in photography and painting. I also paint, mostly landscapes in acrylic, and I have been trying my hands in new skills such as cooking and gardening. These activities have encouraged me to balance my time and to get used to the pressure of overcoming challenges.

The excellent time management that I have developed over time due to my involvement in all of these activities will be useful to me in the university. I am very self-motivated, and also look forward to getting involved in various societies and academic events on campus during my time at university.

With my enthusiasm for mathematics, business, government policies, and my desire to understand how change in price in one commodity can affect the whole of the economy. I am greatly convinced that business economics is the course that perfectly suits me. I would be very happy to be given the opportunity to study this course in your university.

My name is Sonia Aden, I am a 17 years old Nigerian. I grew up in Abuja, the federal government capital. I am a very sociable person and also a sport loving girl. My hobbies include cooking, traveling, surfing the internet and swimming. My parents are very hardworking and caring, they spent most of their time making sure that myself and my siblings are given the best of education. I attended one of the best secondary schools in Abuja, and this has helped me develop my self-confidence and my social nature.

Growing up I never really understood the relationship between business and the economy, and I was not bothered about it. I was more concerned with law and becoming a lawyer, this was due partly to having a cousin who was a lawyer and I always adored her. But over the years I later discovered that I was more comfortable with numbers and numeric values.

My interest in business and the matters that concern the economy actually started when I was in my 4th year in the secondary. During our school regular annual debating competition, I was selected as one of the debaters and I was asked to speak on the defence on the topic “Oil driven Economy is an Economy sitting on a ticking Bomb”.

It was during my research in preparation for the debate that I started to understand that the economy is driven by so many factors and these factors are all tied to micro factors. The micro factors are the small business which form the cell of the economy. I came to understand that there are other areas if well utilized that are more promising in growing the economy than oil.

The debate was an eye opener, after the debate, I developed a strong interest towards understanding the economy. I started to pay close attention to the stock market, business and the various factors that affect the economy, including government policies. In school my interest in subjects like commerce, economics and mathematics grew. My attention and interest were directed toward business and the economy was noticed by my school management and advice that I joined the teen business club in my school. As a member of the teen business club I was also exposed to so many business and economic matters.

By the time I graduate from secondary, I have already developed interest in finance and the economy. I have already made up my mind that was going to study a course that is economy related. I believe that a degree in business economics is a right and perfect course for me. I feel there is a wealth of challenging and exciting opportunities to be found in the course and I see this as a great opportunity for me. I want to further develop my skills and understanding of business and the metrics / factors that affect the economy and how this can be well managed.

Studying in your school is a privilege and I am willing to utilize this opportunity if I am given to ensure I make a positive impact with it. Your school rate is among the best schools in the UK, and the testimonies have shown that your school not only provides quality education but also student support.

Forensic Science & Criminology

Forensic Science & Criminology PS1


I have always had a passion for crime investigation and playing detective. Growing up I was greatly influenced by crime movies and I was also an avid reader of crime fiction novels especially works of Sidney Sheldon. I would pretend to be a detective solving crimes, and this greatly shaped my personality.

My name is Josiah James and I was born in Enugu state Southeast Nigeria. After primary school, I left Enugu with my parents and we moved to Asaba in Delta state. This was after my dad was transferred from Enugu Police Command to Delta State police command. My dad is a police officer and my mom a caterer.

Growing up, I have been influenced by my dad’s job as a police officer. However, I was disappointed in the fact that many crimes are left unsolved in Nigeria due to the absence of good forensic labs. Forensic science is needed in Nigeria so that crimes could be solved better and accurately.

During my secondary school years, I joined the boy's scout society. I was able to get involved in various activities that helped sharpen my investigation. My membership in the boys' scout society also built my self-confidence through interaction with students from other schools on our quarterly retreats. I also visited some west Africa countries such as Benin Republic, Ghana and Togo. This also afforded me the opportunity to meet and interact with students from these countries.

After my secondary school, I worked in a community based local newspaper company, I was one of the community reporters that brought in news for the weekly publication. My work as a community reporter also developed and increased my love for investigation and crime solving. I was also able to build my communication and critical thinking skills.

I have also wished to study in the UK because of my love and respect for the country. I was a little bit envious of my cousin when she got admitted into one of the institutions in the UK and I have always wished to have such an opportunity. Also, it cannot be disputed that degrees from the UK are well recognized around the world.

With the much research I have done about your institution, I am positive that it is the right school for me. The friendly student environment is second to none. Studying in your school as a foreign student would also offer me the opportunity to take part in a residential experience offered by your school.

Although there have been a lot of negative saying that Nigerians are dishonest and untrustworthy people, I want to see this assumption very wrong and do not speak for the majority of Nigerians who are hardworking, honest and trustworthy. i considered myself to be an honest and responsible person.

Growing up I have developed a keen interest in forensic science and I believe the lack of forensic science to properly investigate crimes in Nigeria has contributed to the negative light in which Nigerians are painted outside the shore of its country. If crimes are thoroughly investigated with the use of modern scientific tools and technology, I am very sure that many unresolved crimes would be a thing of the past.

As a young boy I have always liked science and I have been greatly intrigued and fascinated on how science has been employed in developed countries to resolve crimes. I have also developed the skills of problem solving, and accurate information management. mostly I have learned through crime novels and movies that I have watched.

I have always loved reading and my hobbies include reading, traveling and surfing the internet. My passion for crime investigation has been the major push for me to aim for a career in forensic and crime investigation. I believe that I have a role to play in helping to fight the alarming growing crime rate in my country and the world in general. My ambition is to earn a degree in a course that fulfils the growing demand for experts in investigatory, enforcement and monitoring work.

Over the years, I have researched the career in forensic science and criminology. I have understood some basic aspects of the subject, its terminology and the principle techniques of forensic investigation as well as their application to different evidence types and crime scenarios.

Immediately after my secondary school, I got work in a financial auditing consulting firm as an office assistant. While working here I understand that forensic science has a large role to play in minimizing financial crimes. The work exposes me to the process of financial auditing and investigation. Working with others I was able to develop an efficient communication, interpersonal relationship and team work skills.

I chose to apply to your university because of your reputation as leaders in teaching forensic science and crime investigative skills in a student friendly setting. I am impressed by your experienced and enthusiastic teaching team, and extensive learning support facilities, which all provide for a stimulating and enjoyable study

My skills, interest and love for the game of chess and puzzle have always prepared me for any career in crime investigation. These games have helped me build a strong problem-solving skills and accurate detailing of scenarios. Over the years my skills in problem solving became obvious to my parents who would always seek my assistance to resolve an issue in the house.

My name is Cynthia Nonso, I am 17 years of age and i have lived in Abuja all my life. In my primary school grade 6 class I won the young champion medal in the game of chess organized in my local government while representing my school. I later represented the local government in the state chess game championship, although I did not win the gold, I came in third place winning the bronze medal.

In my secondary school I was a member of the school chess and puzzle team and represented my school in numerous competitions and won various medals. Aside from being a very passionate chess and puzzle player, I am very sound academically. In my 3rd year I was the overall best science student in my school. My love for science related subjects is closely linked to my dad who is a chemistry and biology teacher. I gained vast knowledge about science from him and I am always fascinated by the work in the laboratory.

Through my research I discovered that science could be used for solving crimes. On television and novels, I watched and read about crimes and work of forensic scientists and It all seemed to be very exciting. I got interested in it even more after learning that forensic science could help in solving crimes and I decided that this would be a career I would like to pursue. After graduation from secondary school, I got my first job to work as a receptionist in a medical laboratory.

Thanks to this job I have developed my organisation skills and learnt how to manage my time in an efficient way so I can always meet the deadline. One of my responsibilities is to schedule appointments for patients. Therefore, I have a constant touch with people. It requires me to be communicative and have problem-solving ability as people come there with various problems and questions.

I strongly feel that my reliability, communication and problem-solving skills which I have developed over the years and during my time working as a receptionist in the medical laboratory are all valuable assets that would help me in the career as a forensic crime investigator.

I am applying to your university, because I have researched a lot about schools in the UK that offer courses in forensic science and I find your school to stand out. The quality of teaching facilities as it relates to the course are top class. Your school also offers an opportunity for me to continue with the course to PhD level, which I am intending. I hope you will look favourably on my application as I look forward to hearing from you.

I am positive and very optimistic that a degree from your institution would serve as a help me better myself and set me on a path of truth, dedication and steadfastness.

My name is Joseph Mathew, I was born in Jos, Plateau state Nigeria. I am 17 years of age. I am a lover of sport activities and I have actively taken part in sporting activities in my secondary school. My hobbies include reading, playing football, swimming and playing chess.

My interest in a career in crime investigation and forensic science has been greatly influenced by the high number of unsolved murders and killing that has happened in Jos over the years. Growing up in Jos, a once peaceful city has been traumatic and scary due to a growing increase of unsolved killings. It almost seems like the police have lost the capacity and means in resolving these deaths.

What I feel is lacking and standing as an impediment to solving crimes in Nigeria is the use of scientific and forensic methods. Through the books I have read I have found out that crime can be properly resolved if scientific means of crime investigation are adopted. It is on this note that I discover that there is a high demand for the right scientific method in crime investigation in Nigeria.

I am very optimistic that a degree in forensic science and criminology would make me a valuable asset to my country as regards to crime investigation and solving of crimes.

I am very interested in facing challenges, especially those challenges that always lead me to a new discovery. I believe a career in crime investigation and criminology would be a challenging and demanding career that could lead me into opening new chapters and addressing important issues. I have always been stimulated by the need to contribute to my community through volunteering. I have volunteered for various teen and youth development programmes especially those that are related to reducing crimes.

My name is Stephen Jacob, it gladdens my heart to apply to your university, to study for a degree in forensic science and criminology. A career in crime fighting has always interested me, after the death of my best friend's father who was killed in 2013 by suspected hire killers. The police failure to find and bring the culprit of the heinous crime to book has always spurred my sixth sense in finding ways on how crimes can be resolved. I feel that there is still a lot to be done as it relates to the use of science and forensic in solving crime in Nigeria.

I am very passionate about sport and have participated in it for years. From kicking a football around the playground in year 2, to representing my school and community in various football tournaments. Over the years I have won several medals and awards. I have always loved football and enjoy playing the game, and I hope to continue playing this sport whilst in the university. Besides football, another sport I enjoy playing is table tennis and I am quite good at it.

I also have hobbies for indoor board games such as chess and scrabble. Playing chess has really helped me improve my problem-solving skills which I am convinced would be a great attribute in building a successful career in crime investigation.

I have also understood that a career in criminology means I must be good in dealing with the public in order for information to be obtained. I am trying to build my interpersonal and social skills through volunteering and community service. After I graduated from secondary school, I started working in a local community youth development centre where I have volunteered for years. My working in the community centre opened me to more understanding on dealing with both young people and adults.

A degree in forensic science and criminology would allow me to put my personal skills, attributes which I have developed over the years to the best possible use. With a personal resolve to make sure that crimes are properly and thoroughly investigated in Nigeria, I am planning to set up a private crime investigation and forensic outfit in Nigeria after my graduation to help in the problem of investigation.









Forensic Science & Criminology PS6


My interest in studying a course in forensic science and criminology was first stimulated by crime stories, novels and crime movies. I was always intrigued by the use of science and science related methods in solving crimes. The stories that I come across in the media sometimes make me wonder why criminals think the way they do, especially psychopaths who usually don’t feel any remorse when perpetrating crimes. Studying forensic science and criminology would allow me to go into a career where I will be able to understand a lot about crimes and how they could be effectively investigated.

Passion alone is not enough to help me achieve the dream of a career in criminology, that is why i am applying to your university, to obtain the much-needed skills and training that would help me build a successful career. I believe that a career in criminology would offer a wide array of challenges and I am also positive that it would be interesting and rewarding. I have prepared myself to face the challenges it brings.

I have tried to build my problem solving and critical thinking skills through my involvement in challenging games and activities. I am a lover of chess games, which improve the critical thinking of the player. I am also a player of the Japanese strategy board game Shogi. These games have helped me develop my problem-solving skills which I believe would come handy in a career in forensic science and criminology. I am good at problem solving, I am adaptable to different situations, I can manage time, I am self-confident and am great at handling pressure.

In my secondary school I had great interest in science subjects such as chemistry and physics. During chemistry classes I would pay keen attention to how chemicals are used because I learnt that chemicals such as iodine, cyanoacrylate, silver nitrate and ninhydrin are the main use by forensic scientists. I was also passionate about sports, with my interest in athletics. I have represented the school in various race competitions.

After my secondary school, I worked briefly in a supermarket as a shop attendant. Working as a supermarket attendant helps me improve my ability to work with the public, work as part of a team or in isolation and also improve my communication skills. However, my time that I worked as a supermarket attendant was a short 6-months period.

I am applying to your university, because I have researched a lot about schools in the UK that offer courses in forensic science. Your institutions provide a friendly learning environment, which focuses on practical methods of teaching. Your institution uses modern and advanced teaching methodology to make learning easy for students. It also pleases me that your institution houses one of the largest numbers of foreign students in the UK.

My name is Kazeem Ahmed, I have always had an interest in crime-based news and information especially as it relates to investigations and criminal apprehending. During my time in secondary school i was a student ambassador and this has presented before me a big responsibility and task especially as it relates to student’s coordination. My responsibilities as a student ambassador means I was to ensure that my school was represented in the best light, this has afforded me the time and skills to monitor, mentor and liaise with various students within my school and outside my school.

I also worked with various teachers and the school management to ensure that student demand and need are met. Taking up this responsibility has also been a beneficiary to me academically and socially. The skills that I have managed to pick up from these types of experiences consist of teamwork, sense of responsibility and leadership. I was also a sport person who took active part in sport activities and this helped build my spirit of sportsmanship. Over the years, I have come to realize that the reason why crimes are on the increase is partly due to the fact that previous crimes are not solved and criminals always find a way out after committing a crime. This is mostly true especially when you look at the persistence growth in internet related crimes such as scamming and phishing.

I have always been interested in subjects that are science based or related, especially those subjects that can be put into use in crime fighting. This has given rise to my continued interest in chemistry. Ever since I discovered that chemicals can be used in forensic investigations, I have shown a high curiosity to understand the subject better.

I am very optimistic that if crimes of various nature are adequately solved through proper investigation, there would be a dramatic drop-in crime rate. However, in Nigeria, the right tools and instruments needed to investigate crimes are basically few or non-available. This has become a growing concern and I am willing to pursue a career in criminology and investigation to help contribute to the fight against crime in Nigeria. While these might be a personal goal and objective, I believe that if more young people are allowed the opportunities to follow a career path in criminology it would be beneficial to the future of the society in general.

I hope that by studying a degree in forensic science and criminology to the highest level will enable me to achieve the qualifications, skills and training needed to help in crimes investigations and also help me build a credible career in criminology. Because after my degree I hope to work my way up the career ladder and be part of a team solving crimes and helping to bring criminals to justice.

I have also considered the possibility of undertaking a MSc after completing my undergraduate degree and your institution provides the needed environment and materials, I would need to build a successful career in the field of criminal investigation.






Forensic Science & Criminology PS8


Growing up in Port Harcourt, a Niger delta state in Nigeria, I have always witnessed crimes and criminal activities. Many of these crimes are largely unresolved due to non -existence of the expertise needed to investigate these crimes. There is a high number of kidnapping related deaths in this oil rich state of the country and these incidents are greatly affecting the economic growth of the region.

In 2014, there was a large public outcry in my community when a 79-years-old bishop was kidnapped and later the dead corpse was found after ransom was paid. As usual the case remains unresolved even with strong indications that the perpetrator of the crime was among top members of the church hierarchy. As a young girl I have always dreamt of helping in resolving crimes such as this and thus, have the belief and resolve to build a career in forensic science and criminology.

At my secondary school I have always enjoyed reading books and novels that are crime related. And I have been a fan of a crime programme on satellite television Investigation Discovery. Through my watching of this TV programme I came to realize that most crimes that are perpetrated are carried out by those who have a close relationship with us and these criminals usually leave footprints that can be easily used to trace them back. However, the lack of experts and tools needed to carry out the investigation to the latter always leads to unresolved crimes.

My name is Elizabeth Okocha, I am 17 years of age, I am a mentally strong person with a calm personality, who is willing and able to work whenever and wherever crime occurs. I have discovered I am not scared to handle extreme cases like dead bodies and other messy situations. One of the areas that has always caught my attention is how genetic fingerprinting is used to identify suspects in criminal cases.

I have always been intrigued when I watch on the TV channel Investigation Discovery that a crime was solved using the fingerprints of the culprit in tracing them. However, I look forward to gaining further knowledge in this area and getting the chance to develop my investigation skills and being part of a crime solving team.

I am positive that I would enjoy a career in crime investigation and my joy would be limitless after I would crack my first official crime case. Given the opportunity to study in your institution would be a great privilege and I am optimistic that the experience would be enjoyable.

My name is Joshua Mathew. I have always been fascinated by the workings of the human mind and what drives people to commit crimes; this has greatly influenced my interest in the biological aspect of crime solving through forensic investigation. I also have a strong interest in crime related television programmes and real-life crime cases. It is for these reasons that I wish to formally study a degree in forensic science and criminology.

During my time at the secondary school I held a number of roles that demanded my active participation in social activities. These roles include head of Boys scout society in my school, head social prefect and captain of the Athletics team. These roles helped me develop a strong personal confidence, as well as teaching me to communicate effectively. I also developed teamwork skills, problem solving abilities, and learnt to use my initiative when faced with a new challenge.

After graduation from secondary school, I volunteered in a local community centre that helped in the fight against youth restiveness. During my time as a volunteer I learnt a lot as it relates to why young people go into crimes and how the mind works. I also worked as a junior laboratory assistant in a medical laboratory. I provided administrative and technical support for the laboratory staff, and I worked in a modern well-equipped department carrying out a wide range of tasks which required good hand to eye coordination and attention to details.

I consider myself to be an honest, motivated, diligent and a responsible person who is able to handle private information and personal information of people I work with. I am thorough, accurate, careful and methodical in the work I do. I feel I am mentally stable as an individual and I can work under pressure, unpleasant scenarios and I have the confidence to present evidence in a courtroom without fear or favour.

I have always liked science, problem solving and a bit of intrigue, and think that a career in criminology and forensic science would be a good way of combining all of these subjects.

I have always admired your institution and I have always given special interest to the learning and teaching modalities employed in your school. I am applying to study forensic science and criminology in your institution because your school has the right teaching facilities to help me understand this course.






Forensic Science & Criminology PS10


Although I have always been intrigued and fascinated by crime books, novels and TV shows, the desire to pursue a successful career in crime investigation is borne out of a high number of unsolved crimes that have happened in my locality. The kingship tussle in my village has resulted in suspicious death that could easily be traced to the various parties that are involved in the struggle. But the police have failed to solve many of the cases and some are easily swept under the carpet.

My name is Maryam Baba, I am 17 years old. I was born in Lagos and I grew up in Lagos but I hail from Kogi state in Nigeria. Since 2014, there has been ongoing kingship tussle that has destabilized the peaceful community. Coming from a family which also has claims to the throne, I have witnessed first-hand death that could easily be traced to the kingship crisis, but due to the flaw nature of investigation many of these deaths have remained unsolved.

I have seen that there is a lack of experts and employment of modern scientific methods to investigate these crimes and this has become one of the reasons I have decided to pursue a course in forensic science and criminology.

In my secondary school, I was an active member of the school social community. In my 5th year in secondary school I was appointed the social prefect, with the responsibility to organize and coordinate most of the social events. This gave me the chance and the opportunity to build my relationship with people and also it has given me the opportunity to be more open to listen to other people's opinions and share ideas. This has helped me become more diligent, build a desire to do a task well, and to take obligations to others seriously.

Academically, I developed interest in science related subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and mathematics. My hobbies include reading books, listening to music, playing board games and traveling. From this I have developed skills such as decision making, critical thinking and working under pressure. These are all skills I believe to be necessary for successfully completing a degree in forensic science.

After my graduation from secondary school, I started a part-time job at a human rights organization working here allowed me to gain confidence in myself whilst working as an individual and also as a crucial team member. Working here also offered me the opportunity to improve my communication skills. I strongly feel that my diligent nature, reliability, communication skills, and responsibility are all valuable assets to me during this course.

After careful consideration and selection among various schools in the UK that offer a degree course in forensic science and criminology, I am impressed by the experienced and enthusiastic teaching team, and extensive learning support facilities, which i believe would all provide for a stimulating and enjoyable study environment.





Nursing

Nursing


Nursing has been the career I have always wanted to engage myself in. The desire to become a nurse was developed at a young age as I watched Nurses administer healthcare to patients. Going into this field of study, I believe will be the beginning of a great medical career for me.

I have taken part in discussions and seminars given by nurses from different healthcare institutions. I have also taken part in a discussion by nursing students from the Brigham Young University. It is through these programs that I learnt basic skills like performing CPR and controlling bleeding from cuts and wounds. Specifically I would like to go into Child Nursing. I have wanted to work with children, and combining that with the desire to become a nurse has given me an even greater desire to become a Children’s Nurse.

Growing up in Ghana, I have seen many sick children. Feeling compassionate about these children and wanting to help them has increased my interest in becoming a Children’s Nurse. Studying to become a Children’s Nurse will help me further improve upon my knowledge and skills.

Nursing, especially Children’s Nursing is seen by many as a difficult career but I believe that, with the required effort, knowledge and skills, it can be made less complicated. It is a career that comes with its rewards and privileges if undertaken with the right attitude and effort. It is due to the attitude and little effort that people put into it that make is seem like a burden or a difficult career.

I am passionate about helping people and making an impact, no matter how small on their lives. I like to make people, especially children happy. Going into nursing, I believe will help me carry out this ambition. Nursing is a career that deals with people and I am a friendly person. I interact well with people, children especially. I am a hardworking person and I work hard especially for what I want. Apart from having the desire to become a Children’s Nurse, I also have the qualities that are important in this field of study and career.

To be given the opportunity to study nursing and to work towards my goal of becoming a Children’s Nurse will be a great privilege for me. It will give me the chance and opportunity to learn in order to improve upon my knowledge and skills.

Growing up in Africa, Nigeria to be precise has prepared me for a larger challenge. I never hoped that i would have the opportunity to study outside the shores of my country but fate has been fair to me and here i am preparing myself to leave the shores of my country to study. This is a wonderful opportunity I would not give away.

I was born into a middle-income family, of a civil servant father and a Caterer mother. Having grown up in Lagos Nigeria, I have had an interest in Nutrition and Food. This could be attributed to the fact my mother was a caterer and through helping her I have developed a keen interest in her trade and decided to follow her path. My hobbies include cooking, teaching, traveling and learning.

Over the years I have used my hobbies as a source of income and my parents were quite impressed when I started making cookies which i would sell at school social events and in my community.

I attended a fairly expensive high school in the suburb of Maryland, Lagos, my parents always strive to ensure they give the best to their children. Seeing their struggle, I was determined not to disappoint them and as such this has made me stay away from crime. After my high school I was selected among the best students from my school, after doing exceptionally well in my senior secondary school certificate examination.

I could see the joy in my parents' faces when i was presented with an award as the best student in four different subjects which included food and nutrition. At that point my parents promise me that it would be better if I travel to the United Kingdom to continue my education. This is what I never thought would happen and I promise myself I would never disappoint them.

The next day I started searching all over the internet for a school that would suit my study and personality. I came across your university and it was clear that this was best for me because I found out that not only does your school provide student support for foreign students but it also presents an enabling study environment.

My desire to study Food and Nutrition science, could be attributed largely to the passion I have developed for the field of nutrition and catering. However, I came to realize that there were a lot of challenges my mother struggled through because she lacked the necessary training as a nutritionist. My passion to overcome those challenges further spun my desire for the course.

‘’Food is life and nutrition is the soul of food’’, these were the words of Mrs Adelusi, my Home Economics teacher in my junior secondary school. These words have stuck to the deepest part of my memory and I have continued to reminisce these words over and over again.it is already more than 5 years that my Home Economics teacher said those words, but I am still searching to understand the soul in food and this has brought me here.

My name is Hafsat Salaudeen, i was born in Ilorin kwara state, where i did my primary school education and secondary school education. The words of Mrs Adelusi have shaped my life and it will still continue to shape it. Ever since I heard her words in my first home economics class, I have been stuck by a passion to understand the very nature of food and its importance in our lives. My hobbies include reading, cooking, indoor activities and swimming.

Obtaining a degree from a UK university has been a lifelong dream, not just because of the value and the global recognition placed on certificates from UK schools, but because UK schools provide one of the best learning environments for foreign students inclusive of student support and availability of well-advanced learning facilities.

During my search for a UK school I was privileged to come across your school website, where I got to learn about your school and its creeds. I was quite convinced that this was the school for me. Going through your course analysis, I found out that studying in your school would not only provide me with the much-needed skills as a nutritionist but it would also provide me with firm knowledge of food and nutrition and a better qualification.

Your school would also provide me with exposure to a wide world and help me build a network of friends that are cut across the globe. This is an addition to the qualification obtained. I also loved the fact that studying in your school would offer the opportunity to explore new areas of learning, which is vital in a field like nutrition science.

Studying the UK, offers an opportunity to interact with foreign students across the world, as UK has become a number one destination for foreign students especially those from the commonwealth countries. The UK also offers security, which is why it attracts students across the world.

My name is JJJJJ, i was born in Lagos Nigeria and i would count myself privileged to have been born into a wealthy family. My father is a businessman who deals in car sales and importation and my mother is a banker. I am the first daughter of my parents, this placed me in a vantage position.

When I told my parents of my desire to study food science and technology it did not come as a surprise, having been a food geek if there is a word like that. I have been fascinated by nutrition and understanding it. In my primary school, I was made the nutritionist prefect and my responsibility was to ensure that my fellow students eat right.

Over the years my passion for nutrition has grown wider and I have attended various training and seminars that are related to nutrition. Through these training, I have come to understand that there is a serious issue of mal-nutrition in Africa and across the globe. Many people still do not have access to enough food to meet their basic daily needs for nutritional well-being. This has given rise to poor health, sickness and deaths.

While it is apt that a balanced diet is essential for providing the much-needed nutritional value, it is also important to note that a balanced diet doesn't need to be expensive. What I believe is amissed is adequate education on how to eat right and eat well.

There is an urgent need to address the challenges posed by mal-nutrition, through proper nutrition education and food management. In the face of these challenges I strongly believe that I have a part to play. Hence this further sprouts my desire to become a professional trained nutritionist.

Testimonies from alumnus of your school have shown that this is the best school for me. Your school is among the few schools in the UK that teaches nutritional science as an undergraduate course. During my background check I found out that your school has a strong working relationship with British Dietetic Association which is the UK's largest organisation of food and nutritional professionals. The pedigree of lecturers in your school are top notch.

The underlisted qualities have made me choose your school as my destination of study. I am positive and looking forward to an offer of admission to your school. Also, the enormous opportunity made available to undergraduate students of food and nutrition science in your school is second to none.

I hope you provide me the opportunity to study in your school, to equipped me better for the task that I have set ahead in the fight against mal-nutrition in Nigeria and Africa.

It would be a great privilege to be offered admission to study food and nutrition science in your school. Especially when looking at the pedigree and repute of your institution. But i am determined to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that i have the passion, love and charisma to pursue this course in your school.

As a young boy of 8, it was painful when I saw the mother of my best friend pass away due to health complications that the doctor later attributed to food poisoning. As I grew older, I came to understand that the problem of poor food management has caused the deaths of hundreds of people in Nigeria.

I have made it a responsibility to ensure that I educate people about food and nutrition. This has formed the foundation of my passion to study food and nutrition science. It has become necessary that we educate our people properly on food and nutrition. Bad dieting has also contributed to health problems and complications which have continue to cause deaths.

In Nigeria according to UNICEF estimate, 2 million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM), with treatment reaching just 2 but only two out of every 10 children affected. It is also estimated that 7%of women of childbearing age also suffer from acute malnutrition especially in the northern part of the country. In secondary I became very passionate about social work and volunteering. I was able to read extensively on the problem of mal-nutrition.

My favourite subject in secondary school were home economics, basic science and health science. I was also a member of the boys’ scout association and volunteered in various areas. I was learnt a lot about the challenges of food management in Nigeria, I came to realize that although the problem of malnutrition has been attributed to poverty, it is important to note that poor methods of food preparation is a largely cause of malnutrition. Coming from a society where mal-nutrition is a problem, I am passionate to help in its fight.

A chance to study in your university would provide me with the much-needed knowledge, skills and qualification to help in the fight against mal-nutrition in my society and across the sub-Saharan Africa. Especially in the malnutrition-ravaged area in the northern part of my country where children and women are lacking basic daily nutritional needs.

I am positive that your school houses the facilities and faculties to equip me with the right training. And a degree from your school will give the opportunity to learn other areas of health that can be caused by lack of proper food management.

Growing up I have always had it in the back of my mind i have a duty to fulfil as a nutritionist and to help in the fight against food related death in Nigeria.






Food and Nuitrition Science PS5


Coming from an African background I have witnessed first-hand the problem of mal-nutrition and the poor food management. This therefore influenced my decision to study food and nutrition science at a higher level. I feel that there is a part I have to play in making sure that proper dieting is promoted in Nigeria and in Africa in large.

During my high school I developed a love for food management and dieting. My love for food and nutrition science made the school management appoint me as the food and nutrition prefect. I was given the mandate to ensure that a proper balanced diet menu was served in the school cafeteria. This further built my love for nutrition and food science.

My duty as the food and nutrition prefect further during my secondary days further increases my understanding of the importance of nutrition science. For 3 years I served in the position, there was a drastic fall in the issues of poor dieting, food poisoning, and food wastage. I was given an award of excellence and recognition for my diligent service.

My hobbies include cooking, and I have won a number of awards in cooking competitions in my church, community and school. I also have love for dancing, traveling and athletics. In athletics I have represented my high school in various sport competitions, especially in the 100m, 200m and 400m relay race. I have also won a number of personal and team medals.

After high school i took up a job as a kitchen assistant in a local restaurant in my community, my duties were to assist the restaurant chef in getting groceries from the market and stores. During my time as a kitchen assistant I learnt a lot about nutrition and food management, and I also learnt a lot of skills that are easily transferable to others. This job also contributed to my passion and decision to study food and nutrition science at a higher level.

Having the opportunity to study in your school would be a privilege and a dream come true. I have always fantasized about schooling in your institution since I was the age of 12, when my cousin graduated from your institution. The pictures of him in his convocation gown are still stuck deep in my mind. Aside from this, your institution is rated as one of the best study locations for foreign students, especially those from Africa and Asia.

I am also fascinated by the support and moral assistance offered to students of foreign creed. Location of your institution is also close to my favourite English football club.

The problem of malnutrition has been attributed to poverty; it is important to note that poor methods of food preparation is a largely cause of malnutrition. Coming from Sudan, a society where mal-nutrition is a problem, I am passionate to help in the fight against mal-nutrition.

I was born in Nyala, Southern Sudan where I did my primary education before, I moved with my parents to Nigeria, where I did my secondary education. My frequent visit to Nyala has exposed me to the problem of mal-nutrition that has become a menace in my country.

Through my travels I have demonstrated a capability to conduct deep research into the cause of poor nutrition, food wastage and poor food management in my country. The need to do this has pushed eagerness to utilize available resources to further develop my skills and obtain the relevant qualification to help me in this quest. I also have a deep desire to communicate my passion to others and teach about the problem of malnutrition.

I am excited to apply to your school where I plan to hone my skills and passion in nutrition. I am also excited to share my passion, knowledge and skills for nutrition which I have acquired as a result of my curiosity. I am willing to share these skills through networking with other students from other parts of the world. I also inspire to learn from people of other cultures and races. Back in my country, which I visit regularly, I have volunteered my time to teach people about the problem of mal-nutrition.

I hope to teach people in my community the importance of food management and dieting. I also want to serve as an inspiration to the next generation of young nutritionists. I look forward to a career as a nutritionist while keeping the mentoring of future nutritionists in the background because I have made this an utmost priority in my life.

At your School I have applied to study food and nutrition science. In this programme I hope to gain the much-needed skills, knowledge and qualifications to help me pursue my dream as a nutritionist. And a major destination for foreign students, I believe that your institution would afford me the opportunity to interrelate with a number of students from different countries.

I look forward to being offered a place of study in your institution.

From a very young age nutrition has been an important part of life and passion. This has also shown in my academic studies, I have always done well in food and nutrition related subjects since my primary school and high school days. I have also had much success within my academic studies, scoring good grades in my final high school examination. My hobbies include traveling, dieting, reading, teaching, and sporting activities.

During my high school time I took part in extracurricular activities, and I was a member of the health club. I also learnt a lot about nutrition and food management during my extracurricular classes and this has given me a solid foundation to embark on a challenging and exciting degree in Food and Nutrition Science.

Throughout my secondary school I was actively involved in sport activities from individual sports to team sports. In my senior secondary class, I was appointed as captain of my school football team. I was successful in motivating others to succeed. Taking this a step further, for my work experience I chose to work alongside our sports and fitness nutritionist whose responsibility is to teach students about fitness and how to effectively improve health, while optimize performance.

During my time working with the sport and fitness nutritionist I gained further experience in motivating, communicating and leading pupils. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience as I gained exposure into the life of teaching. As well as helping with the practical elements of our school sports, I also helped with the academic aspects of this by helping to formulate diet plans, and looking more closely into the relationship between theory and practical and how they link together.

At the end of my degree I aspire to become a nutritionist and a nutrition educator for College students and my communication skills which i have learnt over during my extracurricular classes would come handy. My passion for food and nutrition related subjects in my high school has given me an excellent insight into practical elements of the importance of nutrition in our daily lives.

I have also learnt the different diseases that are nutrition related, understand further the human systems and processes relating to all areas of nutrition including the role of a balanced diet.

Over the years my passion for nutrition science has grown wider, after attending different training and seminars that are related to nutrition. Through these training, I have come to understand that there is a serious issue of mal-nutrition in Africa and across the globe. Many people still do not have access to enough food to meet their basic daily needs for nutritional well-being. This has given rise to poor health, sickness and deaths.

I was opportune to get to know about the importance of nutrition when in my high school I was among the few that were selected to visit an internally displaced persons (IDPs) camps in north east state. Having lived all my life in the highbrow area of Lagos, the closest I have ever come close to a mal-nourish child was on the screen of my television.

However, my trip to IDP camps forever changed my perspective about the importance of nutrition and dieting. After taking a tour round the camp, I saw first-hand the problem of malnutrition. The doctor who was attending to the large number of children and women, explained to us why good nutrition is the first and most important defence mechanism of the body.

From this moment I made a decision to help in the fight against mal-nutrition. Since then I have attended a number of seminars and training where I have improved my knowledge and skills in food, nutrition and the importance of a balanced diet. After my trip to the IDP camps I became actively involved in teaching and learning about malnutrition. i would spend large hours reading about problems of malnutrition in Africa.

After I left high school, I have volunteered my time and energy to help in the fight against mal-nutrition. I have worked as a volunteer with a number of non-governmental organizations concerned about nutrition and mortality.

I have been able to improve my understanding of nutrition and also developed other skills such as communication, interpersonal relationship and team work that would serve as an added advantage in my future dream as a nutritionist.

My hobbies include traveling, dieting, reading and sporting activities. A chance to study in your school would provide me with the much-needed knowledge, skills and qualification to help in the fight against mal-nutrition in my society and across the sub-Saharan Africa.

I intend to become a professional nutritionist and acquiring a degree in Food and Nutrition science is a basic step and qualification to achieving this goal. I plan to immediately come back to my country to work as a nutritionist after my degree.

Starting from an early age I have been fascinated and intrigued about food and my parents have always complained that my eating habits and how it would affect my body system. True to their word, by the age of 10 I was suffering from obesity. The doctors placed me on an eating routine to help me check my overweight.

It was during this period of my life that I came to understand that what we eat and how we eat plays a key role in our body system, health and growth. This further increased my need to understand nutrition and the crucial part it plays in our lives. In order to satisfy my curiosity, I found interest in unravelling nutrition related illness and disease and nutrition and right eating helps to promote human health and to ward off diseases.

Ignorance has caused a lot of diseases associated with insufficient nutrition are widespread poor dieting and food management. By contrast, people tend to show surplus nutrition, resulting in the development of chronic diseases such as obesity and cardiovascular diseases.

Having also experienced nutrition related illness such as obesity. I developed a passion to help people who are also facing similar problems. By teaching them what it means to eat right and how nutrition could be used as medication to curb such minor illness. This has led me to develop a serious interest in nutrition and it now appears that this interest has become a major career objective.

My motivation in seeking a degree in food and nutrition science is that I wish to learn the basic and practical knowledge that can be applied in finding solutions to problems that are food and dieting related such as obesity. I also want to be able to be able to profound solutions through a scientific process of our daily diet and nutrition to strengthen the physique, prevent diseases and improve our health conditions.

However, the reason why your school became my choice of interest is not far-fetched, during my search for a UK school I was privileged to come across your school website, where I got to learn about your school and its creeds. I was quite convinced that this was the school for me. Going through your course analysis, I found out that studying in your school would not only provide me with the much-needed skills as a nutritionist but it would also provide me with firm knowledge of food and nutrition and a better qualification.

After my BSc in Food and Nutrition science, I wish to continue to the graduate school to pursue a research masters in Nutrition science, that may lead to a doctoral degree. This will enable me to work both as a nutritionist as well as a researcher on nutrition and dieting. This would also afford me the opportunity to be an educator because I want to have a direct impact and groom a generation of nutritionists.

In a world where poor dieting and poor food management have led to rise in disease and nutritional related health challenges there is an urgent need to educate the people why it is important to eat right and eat well.

There is a rising case of obesity in Nigeria, due to poor dieting and high consumption of junk food. I have witnessed first-hand the problem of nutrition related problems. Having been born to a nutritionist mother, I grew up understanding the importance of nutrition and eating right. As a young child I fell in love with my mother’s profession, how she constantly helped her patients maintain healthy living.

When i was just 6-years-old, i was already more familiar with the problems of mal-nutrition and its effects on the human body. I could vividly remember my role as head speaker at a health interactive forum in my primary school. I constantly talked about the importance of eating right and living right. I was well prepared for this role with a nutritionist mother whose large library of books offers knowledge way advance than my age, but passion and drive kept me glued to these books to gain more knowledge.

My understanding of nutrition and the need to educate people about the dangers of poor nutrition drives my passion to pursue a course in food and nutrition science. According to the World Health Organisation reports in (2016), there are around 2 billion adults who are overweight, and of this number 650 million are considered to be affected by severe obesity. That equates to 39% (39% of men and 40% of women) of adults aged 18 or over who were overweight, with 13% obese. Since the late 1970’s there have been increase in the rise of obese persons.

The world obesity has since tripled. It is estimated now that most of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. Going by the available data and statistics if the current trends continue, it is estimated that 2.7 billion adults will be overweight, over 1 billion affected by obesity, and 177 million adults severely affected by obesity by 2025. This is a major nutrition related health challenge and if not properly checked it leads to serious decline in quality of life.

The consumption of junk food and poorly prepared food is a major cause of this problem. Aside from obesity, poor nutrition can impair wellbeing, daily health, and also reduce ability to lead an enjoyable and active life. poor nutrition can contribute to stress, tiredness and affect capacity to work. If not checked over time it might develop in life threatening illnesses and other health problems such as stroke, tooth decay, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart, diabetes and osteoporosis.

There is an urgent need for nutritionists to help fight this problem. This has also increased my passion to study food and nutrition science. Testimonies from past alumnus of your school have shown that this is the best school for me. Your school is among the few schools in the UK that offers nutritional science as an undergraduate course and also in graduate school.

I wish to continue my master’s study as a nutritionist as soon as I obtain my Bsc degree in food and nutrition science. A chance to study in your school would provide me with the much-needed knowledge, skills and qualification to help in the fight against mal-nutrition in my society and the world in general.

I have chosen to study Psychology in order to fulfil a long-term interest in the complexity of human behaviour and psyche. I would like to study in the UK because I will be able to gain some independence from the family yet, I will be close enough to visit easily.

From reading books at home, and regularly watching documentaries on the television, I have aided my growing interest in the field of psychology. I enjoy studying Psychology at college because it involves a wide variety of subjects such as: English, Biology, and Maths, (3 of the 5 Highers I sat during my WAEC).

After my secondary education, I attended my vocational work experience week at Bridge the Leather Co. It proved to be a worthwhile week in that I received a valuable insight into laboratory work and how tests are carried out in the workplace.

I am currently assisting the teachers at a secondary School for the disabled. I am in a class with young autistic children, and I find the work very enjoyable. I have gained a lot of experience in how autism affects behaviour and personality, and have made many new young friends.

I think one interesting application of psychology in business is advertising and the media. I find that the psychology behind some adverts can be very intriguing, and shows that the subject is very significant in today's media. I believe that psychology is an indispensable subject in that the wealth of information still to be uncovered will be of great usefulness.

This year I hope to achieve my target grades, (2 A's & 2 B's), and I am currently putting in a lot of effort in order to ensure these targets are met. Whenever I have free time I spend it playing the guitar or practising with my band. I have a keen interest in Martial Arts, and I have taken up Judo and Jeet Kune Do.

I have lived in and visited several different in Nigeria. This experience has resulted in a growing curiosity in other cultures as Nigeria has over 250 languages. I believe that this has broadened my experience in this area and is likely to make me a more rounded and valuable employee.

At the end of my Bachelors, I intend to go back to my country as there are huge opportunities for graduates from my field in various sectors and industries. I believe I can contribute immensely to the development of my country through my UK experience.

I have no doubt that University Bedfordshire will be a challenging, yet fulfilling part of my life, and hopefully will be the beginning of a successful career. I hope that this application indicates that I am a strong candidate for your University. I am glad because studying with this University gives me the opportunity to be located in a city close to London as well as the kind of infrastructure I see the University of Bedfordshire display on their site.

My name is Olanike, i am a Nigerian, from Oyo state. My growing up has been very interesting and challenging. At a very young age I started to face life challenges. I was 9-years-old when I lost my mother in a ghastly motor accident along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. It was a fateful morning when we received the news that my mother was involved in an accident at Sagamu a few kilometres from Lagos. Though at my age I didn't understand what the fuss was all about, as people gathered in our house trying to console us. I could remember very clearly the events of that morning as my mother's junior sister Aunty Bose was the first to arrive at our house, she clenched me and Bayo together as tears and wails rain down her cheeks.

My dad had rushed to the emergency hospital when the news got to him. In a spate of minutes our house was filled with sympathizers, mourners and wails. The event of that day not only brought gloom to our household, it also affected myself and my elder brother Bayo. Although Bayo was 3 years older than me, he was most affected by our mother's death. Bayo was very close to my mum, and after her demise he became depressed. The death of my mother affected him psychologically and this became very obvious in his academic work and general physical outlook.

2 years after mom's death Bayo would still keep to himself, and not talk with me or any other person. He would skip classes and his teachers have complained on numerous occasions. Bayo’s room became very unkempt, he started performing badly in school work, lost interest in sport activities. After a series of consultations my father was advised to seek the help of a psychologist. Bayo was taken to see a psychologist, after diagnosis the psychologist said Bayo was suffering from “Complicated Grief”.

According to the psychologist reports Bayo was refusing to accept the fact that mummy was dead, Complicated grief was a psychological disorder not accepting the fact that a loved one is gone. As a treatment the psychologist said Bayo would go through a series of therapy. This was the start of my encounter with health psychology and it formed the basis of my desire to pursue a career in the field of understanding mental challenges and disorder. I would always accompany Bayo for his therapy, and after a while Bayo was beginning to improve.

During the period that I would accompany Bayo for his therapy, I was fascinated by the way psychologists carried out their work. I develop interest in psychology and I would ask the psychologist a lot of questions related to mental and psychological challenges. I built a friendly relationship with the psychologist who would sometimes allow me to sit and watch when taking Bayo on his therapy. I also got books from her about health challenges, which I would read passionately.

In school, I would spend hours in the school library reading about mental-health challenges and I was always surfing the web for relevant information about mental-health. After I graduated from high school, I joined an NGO which specialized in mental-health as a volunteer. I visited many psychiatrist homes, where I met with different patients suffering from various mental health problems. I was able to build bonds with a lot of psychological patients and this further increased my aspiration to build a career as a health psychologist. And I believe getting a degree in health psychology is the first and major step towards achieving this dream.

I am glad that I am applying to your school to study a course which could give me the power to impact on the lives of millions of people who are out there suffering from various mental-health challenges. Secondly, this course would continue to be a reminder that the loss of a loved one could create a hole too large to fill, just like the case of mother's death, that left a huge hole in the heart of her family including myself.

The problem of mental health is deeper than we know, mental health has been hidden behind a huge curtain of stigma and discrimination and it is the right time that this problem is brought to the open. Many people are suffering from mental problems of various kinds but because of the low level of awareness and education, coupled with the problem of stigmatization, individuals and families suffer huge and staggering costs. Few people are aware of available avenues to access help.

Growing up in Lagos Nigeria, I have seen how the abuse of drugs has caused damage to individuals and families. The use of drugs has become a growing trend among youth, who abuse this substance and this is causing enormous mental health challenges. Between 2018 to 2020 i worked with a non-governmental organization, which specialized in helping young people overcome the challenges of drug addictions.

In Ikeja alone between a space of 6 months we were able to rescue 17 young drug addicts below the age of 18 years old. During my time as a mental health volunteer, I discovered that there is a serious need to create awareness and educate people about the challenges of drug abuse. We need to enhance our investment in mental health substantially and we need to do it now if we want to make a huge difference.

My name is Monturayo Smith, I was born in Lagos and I grew up in Lagos. At a young age I was already fascinated by mental health challenges, when the son of our neighbour Mike was brought home from the university with mental disorder as a result of drug abuse. Since then my mother has taken Mike's incident as a point of reference when she advised us. At the high this made me join a social club which preaches against the abuse of drugs. We organize talks and debates as it relates to drug abuse and mental health challenges. During my final years in high school I became the president of the club.

After I left high school, I volunteered as a mental health advocate in an NGO. Over the years I have learnt a lot about mental health and drug abuse, but I felt my degree in health psychology would be the right tool I would need to build a career in the field of mental health. I am a strong advocate for the use of education and awareness to check the growing rate of drug abuse and mental health problems. I want to also build an academic career in health psychology so I can influence the younger generation. After my degree, I intend to apply immediately for my master’s degree and my PhD after my masters. Your university would afford the opportunity to build a strong academic career in health psychology.

My name is Josiah Ameh and I am from Benue State Nigeria. Was born in Abuja, the federal capital territory. My Dad is a trained Surgeon and my mother is a Pharmacist. I came from a family with strong medical roots as my two elder siblings are also studying various medical courses in the university. I have always been interested in mental health, and this has played a major part in my desire to study health psychology in university. Mental health should be a concern for all of us, rather than only for those who suffer from a mental disorder.

The problem of mental challenges affects a large number of people, not just the sufferer. This fact I can testify to when my granddad was diagnosed with Alzheimer in 2014. I saw how this drained out my mother and my grandfather's mental health deteriorated moving from minor dementia to severe dementia, it began to affect the whole family. I could remember how each time we visited him in the hospital and he can’t recall who we were, my mother would break down crying. I was curious to know more about Alzheimer and dementia and what are the causes. I would spend time on the internet researching the cause of Alzheimer.

By the time my grandad died in 2016, I was already in high school and I have also developed intense interest in mental health especially those that are age related. I have also developed the habit of visiting old people home, where I would share experience with the old people at the home. In school I developed interest in subjects like social studies. I showed great interest in caring for the age person, especially those who are suffering from mental health. I have made a personal decision to pursue a career that focuses on mental health challenges. I wish to focus my love and concern for the welfare of the elderly people into a lifelong pursuit and career.

After i graduated from high school, I have dedicated time toward the creation of old persons related mental health challenges. I have joined a body of young individuals who visit elderly persons at home and help with their daily activities. This has helped me develop a close bond with old people, and I have come to understand their challenges. Many old people are abandoned by their families and this problem is growing at an alarming rate due to the poor economic condition in the country. The abandonment of old people is causing depression amongst the old people, and this easily degenerates into mental health problems.

A degree in health psychology, would be a major step in my desire to further my research in old people related mental health problems. I aim to find ways in which the problem of disease such as Alzheimer and dementia can be reduced through care for the old people. After my bachelor and master's degree I want to set up a home that caters for old people. There is an urgent need to care for the old people in our society.

Most people don’t know that mental health is more than the absence of mental health problems and disorders. According to the World health Organization (WHO), mental health can be defined as a state of well-being enabling individuals to realize their abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, and work productively. But with the high level of stress in Lagos, this definition is defeated. Lagosian go through a lot of stress in various daily activities and many people are suffering from mental health challenges but they are unaware of it.

Mental health challenges such as anxiety disorder, eating disorder, sleep disorder and mood anxiety are common mental problems in Lagos which people are not aware of, and there is an urgent need to correct this. My name is Israel James, I was born in Lagos where I grew up and attended my primary and secondary school. Having lived in Lagos all my life I have witnessed first-hand the high level of stress and mental disorder amongst the residents of the state.

Lagos is tagged the commercial capital of Nigeria; this has continued to attract a large number of people trooping in the state from other parts of Nigeria and Africa. The large population has placed enormous stress on the few social amenities. Topping the most affected area is the transportation sector. Large commuters use the few available roads every day and with the bad roads, Lagosians spend hours inside traffic and this greatly affects the mental health of Lagosians who are oblivious of this fact.

However, checking, it is discovered that a large number of Lagosian are suffering from minor or major mental disorders that are unknown to them due to stress, fatigue and harsh living conditions. There is an urgent need to educate the people of Lagosians as well as Nigerians about the dangers of mental disorder and they can live a healthy life in the midst of the chaotic Lagos life. This has formed the basis of my desire to study for a degree in health and psychology.

After my secondary school, I worked as a field data officer in a non-governmental organization that works with the Lagos state ministry of health to ensure a healthy Lagos. During my brief one-year period that I worked as a field data officer I was able to learn a lot about the unknown mental health challenges faced by many Lagosians. I also saw the high rate of depression among Lagosians which has resulted most time to suicide and drug abuse.

In the first against mental health challenges, the first step is education. A substantial number of Nigerians lack the knowledge of what is really happening, and ignorance has formed a major challenge. A degree in health psychology would afford me the platform to help to change the narrative. I intend coming back to Nigeria after my study to come and work in the health sector, with special focus on mental health.

My desire to go to school in the UK is pushed by the fact that studying in the UK offer a better learning environment and qualitative education. Your Institution is ranked amongst the most affordable UK universities in comparison to the quality of education offered. I want to make sure I use the opportunity to build a network of relationships with the large number of foreign students that are students of your institution.

Ignorance has cost us more, especially in the health sector. With focus placed on physical health, unfortunately in Nigeria as in other parts of the world mental disorders and mental health challenges are not given much focus and concern. They are relegated or in total neglect. While the world health organization (WHO) are advocating for global campaign against suicide prevention and mental health disorder, little are been done to actually correct this problem.

My name is Bala Adamu, i was born in Kaduna state, where i also did my early education. In my secondary school I was a member of the Red Cross society and this was where I first discovered my interest in the field of health. During my time in school I took active part in the Red Cross activities within and outside the school and I earned a number of medals and awards.

It was during one of the Red Cross society outings that I met Dr Abimbola, a psychiatrist and mental health therapist. Before then I knew just a little about mental health and mental disorders. However, my meeting with Dr Abimbola was an eye opener. She told me about duties of a psychiatrist and mental health therapist, and also why this field of health care is important. She told me how for all individuals, mental, physical and social health are closely interwoven and are vital strands of life. After my encounter with Dr Abimbola, I started self-researching about mental health.

As my understanding of this interdependent relationship grows, it becomes very clear to me ever more apparent that mental health is crucial to the overall well-being of individuals, societies and countries. I saw a need for me to play a role in the challenges of mental health and this was why I have always aimed at getting a degree in health psychology.

By the time I left secondary school, my interest in the field of mental health had become very obvious, I volunteered in various social activities in my community that help promote mental health. Through my volunteer activities I was able to improve on my interpersonal relation and communication skills. And also, I came to know more about various types of various mental health disorders, from the minor ones to major ones.

I am very optimistic about my chances of obtaining a degree from your institution. And this I am looking forward to. I am very much aware of the importance your institution puts in the wellbeing of your students and alumnus. Your school is rated among the top UK institutions that offer a course in health psychology; this is why I intend attending your school so I can be placed in a very competitive advantage compared to others.

I never knew drug usage could pose serious mental health challenges until in my 4th year in secondary school when a fellow student was reported to be suffering from mental disorder as a result of drug abuse. This was an eye opener, which shaped my desire and set my interest to understand and explore the relationship between drug abuse and mental disorder.

My name is Bridget Amos, I grew up in Bayelsa, an oil producing state in southern Nigeria. Growing up and living in Bayelsa has exposed me to a lot of life experiences. The crime rate in Bayelsa is pretty high considering the violated nature of the oil rich state. Gang and cult activities were very rampant, and the activities of oil bunkers and militants in the area provided both cash and weapons for the use of gangs and cult members.

Although I lived in the highbrow areas of Bayelsa far from the creeks where activities of oil bunkers are seen, we sometimes experience the activities of these hoodlums who come to the cities to find safe haven. It was in my 4th year in secondary school that I learnt that some students have also been initiated into various cult groups and gangs. When the news of Onome’s mental disorder broke out, that was when I became aware that some students in my school are members of various cult groups.

Onome’s mental disorder became a starting point for my inquiry into mental health, over the years I have learnt about the various drug abuse, age, and depression related mental disorders. I have made a resolve to help in the fight against mental health related problems, after my graduation form the secondary school i started work in a local community base mental home, which helps look after mental patients especially those suffering from drug abuse related problems.

I have gathered adequate basic knowledge and information as it relates to mental health. However, I wish to further equip myself with the adequate degree and training that would help me be at the forefront of the fight against drug-related mental health challenges in Nigeria. A degree in health psychology is the much-needed step at the right direction to help me qualify as a trained psychologist.

I have always wanted to go to school in the UK, because of the vast opportunity a degree from the UK offers. Qualification from a UK school places one in a vantage position to seek a job in many countries across the world. A degree from your school would also give me the chance and privilege to meet with people from different countries.

My name is Joanne Abiola, i am 16 years old, a native of Ogun state Nigeria. I was born in Lagos where I attended my primary and secondary school education. Over the years I have been intrigued and fascinated by the work of psychologists. My journey and desire to pursue a career in the mental health field is strongly tied to my strong love for crime related and psychopathic movies and novels.

I am a lover of crime related movies and also an avid reader of novels. Rachel Abbott and Paula Hawkins both British authors became my favourite crime and psychopathic authors. Paula Hawkins novel The Girl on the Train and Rachel Abbott novel Only the Innocent were both life changing books for me. I need to understand the mental challenge of depression and how this can affect the well-being of a person.

In secondary school, I developed hobbies in reading, traveling and playing board games. I was also an active member of the readers book club in my school and in my final year in secondary school, I was made the readers book club captain. I was also actively involved in social and sport activities. Through novels, books and movies I started to understand that Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Most things I have learnt about mental health, I learnt through reading.

After I graduated from secondary school, I joined a women group which promotes reading and learning. The group also teaches women how to overcome depression through reading. It was at this group that I made friends with Dr Mrs Eyitayo, a mental health psychologist and Dr Martha Kelechi, a health therapist. I became very close to both women and learnt a lot from them. They were both willing to teach me what I needed to do to pursue a successful career in health psychology.

I have a strong desire and passion to become a psychology health therapist, and a degree in health psychology from your school would be a good step toward my career endeavours. I have had the opportunity to interact with the Africa representative of your school and I find your school and its learning facilities very adequate and student friendly.

My name is Andrew Joseph, it gives me great pleasure and happiness applying to your school to study health psychology. My dream of studying health psychology, a course that looks at mental health is due to my mother's influence and job. My mother is a professional clinical neuropsychologist. She worked in a private hospital in Abuja, the federal capital territory of Nigeria.

Over the years I have seen her carry out her duties diligently and how she has helped people with mental disorders. Every day she would tell us that mental health is more than the mere lack of mental disorders. She taught me that mental health includes personal well-being, and recognition of the ability to realize one’s intellectual and emotional potential. She said the lack of ability of a person or individual to cope with the normal stresses of life, work positively, productively and efficiently can be attributed to mental health challenges.

Her work has also intrigue and fascinated me, and I drew a likeness for the course health psychology. And the dream to pursue a career in that field has been inborn. In my secondary school I became active in various social groups. I developed interest in subjects especially physical education, because I understand that there was a key relationship between physical health and mental health. My hobbies were also shaped by the love I had for the course.

After my secondary school, I became a constant visitor to my mother's clinic. I met with a lot of other neuropsychologists like my mum, and I learnt a lot about mental health because I was always asking questions and reading books that are related to mental health. Another thing that intrigues me about the course health psychology is the way the neuropsychologists are respected and given respect.

I am applying to your school to earn a degree in health psychology, so that I could also help cure and treat people with mental disorders. After carefully browsing through the websites of various schools in the UK that offer a degree in health psychology, I found out that your school stands out, partly for its academic excellence that has been portrayed through your alumnus and also partly due to the friendly and welcoming environment.

Over the years my passion to cater to people suffering from one mental health challenge or the other in my community has grown wider. This could be attributed to the fact that I had a cousin who was suffering from Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I saw the challenge that the parent had to go through especially the mother and i could see the large discrimination in the society toward children with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). First it was empathy that attracted me to my cousin suffering from Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, later I developed a strong interest in understanding the underlying cause of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). i started self-researching and through this i developed a strong passion and love for healthcare and social care.

Over time I have attended different seminars that are related to healthcare, mental healthcare and psychological disorders. Through these seminars, I have come to understand that there are serious challenges as it relates to management mental health care in Nigeria. Also, there is a high rate of discrimination on people suffering from one mental health challenge or the other. Nigerians need to be educated that mental health challenges do not only affect the sufferer but the caregivers and the society in general.

In preparation for the university, after I left secondary school, I volunteered at a local community-based organization that is concerned with helping children suffering with various mental challenges such as Autism and Schizophrenia. My experience working as a mental health volunteer worker helps me gain more knowledge in handling and relating with children suffering from Autism. I have also gained experience in health care and social work. My personal experience at the community-based organization has made me believe that I would be well suited to pursue a career in health psychology.

Volunteering at a community based mental health organization has also been an opportunity to know more about the challenges of mental health. In my community I have become an advocate against the discrimination of people with mental health challenges. I have continued to play a key role in teaching teens about accepting and caring for those with mental challenges. My involvement in volunteering work has presented its own challenges as well as benefits. But because of my passion and love for children with mental disorders, the challenges are rather avenues to build my personality.

I have been able to develop other skills such as communication, interpersonal relationships and team work that would serve as an added advantage in my future dream as a health psychologist. I look forward to being offered a place of study in your school to enable me to expand my knowledge in mental health care and this would eventually help me in my pursuit of a career as a neuropsychologist.

I strongly believe that a degree in health psychology from your school would prepare me well for the task ahead and I would be exposed to a wide network of students from various countries, because your school has become the number one foreign student destination in the UK.

Mental health problems affect society as a whole, and not just a small, isolated segment. This is therefore a major challenge to society growth and development. Be that as it may, it becomes very apt that we all join hands together to help in the fight against any form of mental disorder. Having seen my uncle suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, I came to realize that mental disorder is an impending danger if not checked properly.

My name is Nike Adeoye, I was born in Lagos and I have lived in Lagos all my life. I was the first child of my parents and this formed a close bond with my mummy and most of her siblings, especially Uncle Jide. Uncle Jide was mummy’s favourite sibling and would tell mummy almost anything. I could remember one day, in my 4th year in secondary school, uncle Jide came to our house looking all tattered and smelling of alcohol. I later learnt that uncle Jide was unceremoniously discharged from the military due to protest by the soldiers fighting in the northeast.

Since then uncle Jide has been a shadow of his former self. His wife would complain to mummy on numerous occasions of how he has become very violent. After sometime Uncle Jide’s case became very troublesome and he was taking to see a psychologist who said he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as a result of the events he had experience in the battle front, also couple with the anger that follows his unceremoniously discharged from the military. Uncle Jide was placed on therapy, which saw a great improvement in his well-being.

These events raised my curiosity about mental health and I started to research further into causes of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I developed interest in mental health care and planned to pursue a career in that field. Came to understand that mental disorders do not only affect the sufferer but those people close to him are also affected. There was a need to have more mental health care facilities across the country and I have resolved to establish my own in the nearest future.

After I left secondary school, I spent most of my time researching mental disorders and its effects on society. I further learnt that nobody is immune to mental disorders, although the risk is higher among the unemployed, persons with low education, victims of violence, migrants and refugees, the poor, homeless, abused children and adolescents, abused women and the neglected elderly.

Studying in your institution would afford me the opportunity to pursue my dream as a health psychologist. I have read extensively about your institution and its teaching facilities. Your school stands out for its concern and relatable environment. As a football fan, I also find it very thrilling that my favourite English premier league club is located in the same city as your institution. I am very positive that a degree from a Uk university, would help me overcome challenges that may present itself in the future.

Management

Business Management PS1


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 in 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 consider my key strengths to be; an ability to make analytical judgements, people management, making decisions, assessing business situations and identifying important points. I have excellent interpersonal skills which allow me to relay business information clearly to my target audience, and can prepare well thought out, crisp presentations for both individuals or groups.

During my High School, I have studied this subject, the more my interest in it has grown. I’ve discovered that it’s more than just management, it’s about ensuring that a customers’ experience is nothing other than exceptional, while motivating a team of employees to effectively deliver the following responsibilities: exceptional customer service, building and maintaining a loyal customer base, coaching & guiding customers on product knowledge and application, calling clients for follow-ups, organising events, handling the arrival of new merchandise, and working as a team to meet individual, team and store objectives. All of these are factors which I now have a firm understanding of.

As a technically minded person I am currently working part time as a IT administrator for a networking company. The role involves me in the administration of the company’s LAN/WAN network in 5 locations, performed desktop services, building the bank’s new personal computers, and installation and distribution of new software. I am involved in the management of the Internet frame relay network, and have helped to develop the company’s operating system migration plan for nearly all computers from Windows 98 to XP or from XP to Windows 7. I am also responsible for performing testing on all workstations and servers, ensuring their compliance or and patching the BIOS. The position requires me to work in close partnership with the management team, to ensure the provision of a full and comprehensive support to the frontline technology staff.

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 also performing in the local pantomime! Music is a passion of mine, and I go to concerts whenever possible.

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 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 society’s problems. After viewing many different universities and campuses I have come to the conclusion that your university is the best option for me. I aim to put as much into the course as I get out, and I very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application.

I am patient, a critical thinker, empathetic and I show persistence in challenging situations (I have gone through and managed so many challenging times as a sickle cell patient ) although I studied science courses in my o’ levels, I am able to adapt to change. Above all, I am an ambitious and dedicated student.

Despite the educational challenges I may come across, I am motivated by the knowledge that I will acquire while studying Business at the prestigious London school of Commerce. This knowledge will help me lay the needed foundation for owning and running a successful business in the future.

Human Resource Management PS1


Personal Statement

Growing up in Onitsha, the Anambra state capital in Nigeria I have always been fascinated about how a business operates and how the daily activities are handled. While it is easy for me to comprehend how small and individual businesses and organizations are run, my concern was how big organizations carry out and monitor their large staffs. My uncle who is an HR manager in a plastics production company in Anambra explained to me how the organization manages its daily operations and activities. He taught me what the Human resources was all about and how the HR managers play key roles in making sure staff are well taken care of. He also told me what a career in human resources is going to be if I select this field.

I started to develop an interest in the field of human resources, and I gained a lot of knowledge from him and also from the internet and books on human resources management. I searched for educational websites that teach about Human Resources to know what duties and responsibilities HR officers perform.

Because I learned that the course deals with the management of people, I started to build my relationship with the people around me. In school, I started to find interest in subjects like commerce, accounting, economics, and mathematics. This subject helped build my problem-solving skills and knowledge of management. Outside academics I was also involved in social and sports activities. My hobbies are reading, doing business, cooking and watching TV.

After I graduated from secondary school, I started to work in my uncle’s furniture company as a storeroom attendant. It was during my working here that I came to fully understand the role of Human Resources. And I became fully aware that HR is at the heart of the running of any organization as it relates to the workers.

I desire to study in the UK because the UK has become one of the top educational destinations around the world with an excellent higher-education system with hundreds of world-class universities and centers of learning. Studying in the UK means a better opportunity to gain employment in many countries across the world because qualifications from UK universities are given great consideration. Also, universities in the UK offer a wide range of courses to choose from. I will also gain new skills that employers look for when I study for a degree in the UK.

Amongst the hundred universities in the UK, selecting your school as a destination for my study was not quite easy as I had to go through a rigorous search on the internet. I found that your school provides a well-balanced structure that allows students to easily blend schooling with other activities, therefore, bringing out the best in your students.

Human Resource Management PS3


Personal Statement

Over the years I have understood that Human resource management is a part of the large commercial industry that will continue to grow from strength-to-strength. Human resources will continue to play ever-increasing importance in commerce and commercial activities as long as there is a demand for a workforce.

My interest in human resources management came by chance after I graduated from secondary school and started working in a shoe production company. Working in the shoe factory introduces me to the role a human resources manager performs in any organization.

The human resources were like the connecting line between the organization management and the staff. They deal with issues such as recruitments, appointments, workers' welfare, and much more. It would be accurate to say before the time I started to work in the shoe factory I have no idea what was the role of the human resources department.

Working in that department as an office assistant brought me to the daily activities of the company where I worked. While an observer from the outside might not know the importance of the human resources department, I can say this department is the meeting point between the company workforce and the management.

Just within a short period that I worked here, I realized the sheer scale of the task that the human resources department was faced with, managing a workforce of more than 500 staff in the production and factory did not come easily. We have to show that modalities are put in place to ensure the smooth running of production while meeting workers' demands. Prepare a working roster, workers leave, make sure that the medical needs of workers are also met.

Working in the human resources department I found interest in pursuing a career in human resources, I am beginning to appreciate the role of the human resources in management and I am positive that the skills that I have learned and the understanding of workforce management that I have gather would prove very useful in my future endeavor as a human resources management.

To further prepare me for a successful career as a human resources manager, I have started to take some free online courses on human management on various online platforms such as futurelearn.com. I also took advanced courses in Microsoft Office and Excel. It gives me great pleasure that having the opportunity to study in your university would further add to the knowledge in human management that I have learned while working and what I have learned online.

I have also supervised several projects which saw about 50 to 70 people working directly under my supervision.

I would love to develop my leadership and coordination skills further by learning more of the theories and technicalities employed in Human resources management. I believe that a degree in human resources management in your university would help me draw from the wealth of management experts and faculties at your university to better my understanding of human resources and how to employ it in building a successful career in the field.

I spend most of my time assisting her in her business and I have gained enough experience when it comes to business management.

I am a very reserved and humble boy, who is keen on motivating others to work, much of which I learned from my mother. I love cooking, reading, leading, motivating others, and planning.

Human Resource Management PS5


Personal Statement

The course Human resources management sounds appealing to me not only because it will equip me with the knowledge needed to manage a workforce, but because the course itself covers a wide range of topics and areas that would help me satisfy my wide range of curiosity that has to do with human relation, business management, and planning. I feel there is a deep wealth of opportunities and exciting challenges to be found in studying for a degree in human resources management because it deals a lot with human psychology and how to motivate people to work.

However, I feel that there is a lack of human resources management in many public and private sectors in Nigeria. After taking my time to examine the lack of workplace motivation in some organizations, I conclude the causes are because many people that handle the position as human resources managers lack the proper training and skills to handle workforce management.

I want to develop my skills and understanding of human resource management to enable me to pursue a career in this field. I am also planning to immediately start my MSc after the completion of my degree. I am a very ambitious and self-motivated individual, with a focus and determination to build a successful career in human resources. I feel there is a wealth of challenging and exciting opportunities to be found in human resources and this is an exciting career and one that I can succeed in.

Growing up I have always had the dream to study in the UK, I believe that schooling in the UK provides you with the opportunity to be exposed to a better educational system unlike what is obtainable here in Nigeria. The frequent break in academic work in Nigerian universities due to strikes by various university associations is a major drawback and this causes delays in academic pursuit. The private universities are no better as most of them lack the necessary facilities to teach effectively. This has spurred my desire to study outside the shore of the country especially in the UK.

During a search for a school in the UK, I came across your university website. I was first attracted to it by the graphics and photos that show students' activities. Secondly, I found the website easy and simple to navigate through and all the information that I needed was easy for me to find. I was also impressed by the rich curriculum as it relates to the course I am applying to.

I believe that if I am allowed to study at your university, I am well prepared for the challenges. Academically, I find subjects like mathematics, Business studies, and Economics very interesting. I am also a very sociable person who can relate to different people irrespective of their beliefs.






Human Resource Management PS6


Personal Statement

Human Resources Management has always fascinated me. Having an elder brother who is currently studying for his master's in Business Management helps me to start to understand the basic knowledge of management. One day while cleaning his room I came across a particular book on human resources, Dave Ulrich’s Human Resources Champions. Reading the book exposes me to the basic understanding of human resources. Dave Ulrich's book emphasizes the importance of theory and research for effective HR management.

I was greatly influenced by this book and remember how I would sneak into his room to go through this particular book and other books. As I grew older, I realized that I wanted to build a career in management, with a focus on workforce management.

My name is Chioma Okechukwu, I was born in Lagos, Nigeria. My hobbies include reading, traveling, cooking, and playing table tennis. As a young girl I have been interested in managing business and people, I hope to build a successful career in human resources management. In secondary my interest was on subjects that have a relationship with business and commerce. Through reading various management books I have learned some basic knowledge that I would find helpful while studying for a degree in human resources management.

After my secondary school, I started to work in my mother's cosmetic store. My work here builds my knowledge of business management. I also built my coordination skills and my business relationship skill. Working in the store helped me to further push my desire to build a career that seeks to understand how the workforce can be well managed.

I am also very positive that your school would offer me the best ground to further develop this interest and achieve a successful career in human resources management. Going by testimonies from alumni of your school, I am convinced that the student support which your school offers would help me achieve smooth learning. Academically, your school brings practical solutions to problems in an academically friendly environment.

The availability of on-campus scholarships for foreign students, among other factors attracted me to your school. I am very positive that the scholarship programs would serve as motivational tools to help me pursue academic excellence.




Human Resource Management PS7


Personal Statement

The human resources department is not only an essential part of organizations, but it also sits as the bridge between the workforce and the management in the organization. Over the last decades with the continual emphasis and importance being placed on workers' welfare the human resources department has become a non-disposable part of an organization.

My interest in human resources started during a school business excursion, we visited a multinational organization. Our first stop was the human resource department. We were taken around the organization by one of the human resources managers, who explained in detail to us about the organization, he was very friendly while attending to our questions. He told us the functions of the HR department and why it is important to any organization. I was greatly impressed by the work of HR managers and decided that I would love to build a career in human resources. Ever since my visit, I have started to learn about human resources management.

I took this newfound interest with me back home, in school and I started to focus my concern on subjects that have to do with management and commerce. In my O’level examination, I achieved good grades in economics, mathematics, and accounting and I was keen to develop further my managerial knowledge. The chance to manage a small group of workers came after I started working in an event management outfit.

After I graduated from secondary school, I was employed in an event management company. I was working under the director and my job as the company secretary involved keeping records of various official matters. Because the outfit was not very big, I also played dual roles of taking orders and giving necessary directives to the about 20 workers as required by the director.

Working here has improved my understanding of human resources management because I started to learn the basic skills of communication, coordination, and motivation. I was the link between the field workers and the director and most matters as it relates to their welfare were bright to my table before I would present it before the director. My work experience has already helped me develop many of the requisite skills for my career and the degree in human resources management.

A degree from the UK and a prestigious school like yours would give me a considerable advantage over a large number of job seekers because of the value placed on the degree from the UK. When I am not managing my business, I would love to work as a human resources manager in a public or private sector.





Human Resource Management PS8


Personal Statement

Understanding how the staff of an organization is managed is something that I have always been interested in. Growing up I was always amazed how my dad managed his workers who were numbering over 50. My dad is a businessman who owns various businesses. My dad owns a car sales company, a fruit juice production company, and a poultry farm. My mother is a private financial business analyst, who has worked with several multinational companies both within and outside Nigeria. I have always had the desire to manage my own business in the future and I was keen on learning how workers can be well managed.

As a young boy, I fell in love with Arithmetic’s and mathematics and I could easily solve difficult problems and I also have eyes for money management. My hobbies include reading, traveling, writing, and doing business. I have always had the objective to write a book on business and finance, this objective was borne out of what I have learned from my parents as regards business and finance management.

In secondary school, I was greatly involved in social activities, but this never distracted me from my academic work as I was always top of my class when it comes to subjects like mathematics and economics. I was also a member of the school business club and the school debating club. I have represented my school in many debating tournaments in Lagos state. The activities that I was involved in secondary school helped me develop and build my self-confidence and my interaction skills.

I was a very vast reader and I have read a lot of books on business and management. After my secondary school, I joined the management of my father's poultry farm business. Real-life everyday business experience and management allowed me to learn about how to manage the workforce. I learned why it was important to make sure that workers' welfare is well taken care of. I saw that there was some level of difference from theory to practical experience, there was a lot for me to learn. If I wish to build a successful career in human resources management.

I feel that workers' welfare is very paramount and important just like any other factor in the growth of a business. The failure of the human resources department can greatly affect the business or organization because poorly motivated workers would give less performance. My desire to study for a degree in human resources is because I want to understand more about human psychology as it relates to workers' performance.

I have selected your school after careful research to undertake my studies and obtain my degree because based on statistics, your school is ranked among the top universities in the UK that offer both a degree and a master's in human resources management. Your school is also ranked among the best and affordable schools for foreign students in the UK. I am also very positive that your school would offer me the best ground to further develop my interest in human resources management.




Human Resource Management PS9


Personal Statement

Growing up I discovered that I was not just fascinated with business and multinational organizations but I wanted to understand how workers can be effectively managed and so they could give their best in their jobs. I was keen on making sure that everything was done accurately without mistake. I would make sure that my siblings performed their home tasks as well as their school homework as when due. At home, I would make a list of what needs to be bought and carefully take note of what is not relevant and those that are important. My parents were amazed by management skills and would sometimes seek my advice as it related to management.

In secondary school, I was very interested in mathematics and accounting, the O'Level examination I scored A in accounting. I was also a passionate chess player, representing the school's various chess competitions within and outside the state. I realize that playing chess games helped me develop keen eyes for problem-solving. Aside from playing chess I also took part in various social activities and these made me very popular amongst my peers. My involvement in various activities helped me build my confidence and my problem-solving skills which I know would be useful in a career such as human resources management.

After graduation from secondary school, I started to assist my mother in her fish farm and poultry farm business. This job allowed me to learn various intricacies of managing a business, also watching how my mother handled her workers. I am beginning to learn management skills related to managing workers' welfare. This job also allowed me to put into practice the human management skills that I have developed. I also develop my interpersonal and communication skills.

I have learned over the years that human resources management is a subject that focuses on the moral, physical, and psychological motivation of workers and this aspect touches on all areas of the progress of the organization. When human resources fail, it has a ripple effect on the entire structure of the organization. So therefore managers of organizations should place human resources in a vital position.

A career in human resources would help me understand in-depth the importance of workers welfare, as a prospective business owner, this knowledge would help me make informed decisions as regards to managing workers. Studying in your institution would help me prepare myself for the future, either to work as an independent business owner or to work in any organization or sector.

The career options open to someone equipped with a degree in human resources management seems very huge and immensely diverse and very attractive, especially in an ever-expanding business world. I have always dreamt of schooling in the UK, for the competitive advantage it qualification form the UK offers.




Human Resource Management PS10


Personal Statement

For several years I have had it at the back of my mind to build a career in human resources management or any management course. My mother is a human resource manager at her office and I have always admired how she has been able to build a good working relationship with her colleagues at the office.

My appreciation for the HR officers has grown incrementally, as a result of the profound enthusiasm for the job which my mother shows. Her intense passion for improving the workplace at her organization and the richness and texture of the experiences which she constantly shares with us has helped me develop a great love for human resources and management. Aside from the fact that she was my mother, I have enormous respect for her because she takes the welfare of others as a top priority. So I hope to follow her career path as a human resource manager.

Because of my admiration for human resources management, at school, I found it easier to build a community of friends who showed similar traits as mine. I was a member of the young business club and jet club. Academically I found interest in subjects like Mathematics, Commerce, Business Studies, Economics, and Accounting. My hobbies include reading, cooking, traveling, and swimming.

After graduation from secondary school, I volunteered in a local community center. My volunteering job helped me understand working in a team and how to meet the deadline for projects. Though my volunteering job did not put me in any position to manage a team, I still learn a lot from the project team leaders I worked with.

I am particularly good at motivating people to perform better in their jobs and I know that I would find a career in human resources exciting.

I believe that with a degree in human resources management I would fully develop a broad understanding of many issues in management that are closely related to business administration and organizational management. I will also develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the nature, operations, and management of companies and organizations and the complex ways that they are related to the people involved. I am particularly interested in compensation and managing rewards systems.

Studying at your university I would love to take advantage of the social support that I have read about your school. I look forward to an especially friendly environment with a diverse population of students at your university. This would help me cultivate a global perception of issues.





Interior Architecture

Interior Architecture PS1


Personal Statement

My desire to study and build a career in interior architecture is spur out of my passion and love for creative art, building and design. As a young girl growing up in Lagos I have always been fascinated by the beautiful and mind-blowing architecture in the luscious area of Banana Island in Lagos. I have always developed a strong passion for all things that have to do with interior decoration. At home I would play around with furniture trying to bring the best out of the house furniture, my parents were always amazed at how I would constantly rearrange the house furniture.

From my early age in school, I became a fan of arts and I would create fanciful art works from paper and used tin cans. As I grew older the habit became very obvious to people around me and my parents registered me for creative summer art classes. During these lessons I learnt a lot about creative art and decorations. My hobbies in creative art and decoration further made me develop interest in photography and I started to learn photography online via YouTube.

In secondary school, I became an active member of the art and creative design club, by the time I was in my 5th year in secondary school I was elected head of the art and creative design club. Academically I was not bad because I paid attention to class work, although I never had a preference for one subject over another. I was better in art and creative subjects. At my senior secondary school examination, I did well in basically all the subjects that I sat for.

After I graduated from secondary school, I volunteered in a local community centre, where I taught young children about art and creative design during the weekend. During weekdays I work a part time job at a local decoration store. I was able to learn a lot both as a volunteer and a part-time worker. I experimented with various creative arts and decorations. One key factor that I would say I truly loved working as a volunteer, was that I developed a very friendly relationship with kids.

The various experiences that I have gathered working in these places would be a great help in my career growth as an interior decorator. I believe that I am well fitted for a career in interior decoration and a degree in interior architecture would offer me the much-needed qualification that could help get a good job or prepare me to handle a personal business in interior architecture.

I hope my application to your school to study for a degree in interior architecture is considered because I have always aimed for the best and your school is among the best schools in the UK that offer the course.






Interior Architecture PS2


Personal Statement

Despite being a young person, I have been given the opportunity to offer my suggestion and contribution during the redesigning of my local church. Although I volunteered to work with the interior architect who worked on the redesigning of the structure my opinion and suggestion was taken into it and this made me feel credibly great. I was allowed to make a choice of colour for the painting, furniture’s and ornate needed to decorate the church large hall. The opportunity gave me the taste and how exciting the job of interior architect was and it further motivated me to choose a career in interior architecture.

The interior architect whom I worked with was also very friendly, she taught some basic ethics and ethos of an interior architect, she allowed me to ask her questions of what I did not understand and she gave answers to all my questions. Seeing my excitement, she told me I should consider a career in interior architecture because she felt I have the foresight and maturity to realise a successful career in interior architecture. She said all I needed was to develop my art and creativity skills and also, I needed good computer skills in design and visual techniques to enhance any natural ability that I may possess. And that is why I wish to study a degree course in Interior architecture.

Ever since I have become passionate about interior architecture and I have spent enough time learning about it. In school I would spend long hours in the school library reading about various architectural styles from the 17th century Baroque architecture, Arabia oriental architecture, Neoclassical architecture and modern architecture. I developed a strong love for history to better help develop my understanding of architecture.

In 2019, after I graduated from secondary, I started to learn different computer design skills and techniques. I am currently learning to use a software called Easyhome Homestyler a lighter-weight tool used for designing and planning. Easyhome Homestyler free design software, allows for easily building floor plans in 2D and 3D with accurate measurements and the software also helps to create a photorealistic visualization for you and your clients. I am also learning 3D sculpture design and taking a particular interest into spatial design and pattern designing. I am positive that these skills would help me in my career as an interior architect.

A degree in interior architecture would be a great start for me in a career that I am willing to pursue to a PhD level. Because aside from working as an interior architect, I also want to teach it to the younger generation. I feel that it is important that knowledge is passed down, just as I was influenced to want to build a career in interior architecture. I also want to influence others.

Personal Statement

I am currently interning at an interior decorations and furniture company in Lagos. After my graduation from secondary school, I travelled to Lagos where out of curiosity I enrolled into a design and art school to learn about interior decoration. What I have so far learned during my internship has given me perspective on what a university course would be like. Because I have learnt a lot about interior architecture in a practical way rather than theoretical basis.

I have also learnt about what would be expected from me as a student and a professional interior architecture expert. I have developed self-discipline, Time conscious by meeting deadlines on time, listening to what people want and taking action and also, I have the confidence to take leadership and represent groups ensuring that everybody contributes.

My journey into interior architecture started as a mere curiosity. My name is Jasmine Adamu. I was born in Kano State Nigeria and I also grew up in Kano state, where I did my primary and secondary education. I am a very reserved person with an eye for creative arts. Although I never thought I would seek a career in interior architecture, my desire to build a career in this field started as a mere curiosity. After my secondary school education in 2018, I came to Lagos to spend a brief time with my elder sister and her husband who lived in Ikoyi Lagos.

When i got to Lagos, i was fascinated by the beautiful architecture design that filled the banana island estate where my sister lived. I quickly made friends with neighbours and I would at every excuse walk around the estate to have a view of the wonderful buildings. For me the most intriguing aspect was choosing the furniture and ornaments practically and aesthetically. Because I already have basic computer skills in graphic design, I started to make basic visual design of building interiors. When my sister and her husband saw my creativity, I was asked if I would like to register for a certificate course in interior decoration in an art and design school and gladly accepted.

In just three months after I registered in the school, I was already creating better mock designs of building interiors and furniture’s. After I graduated from the art and design school, through the help of my sister I got the opportunity to intern in an interior decoration company. Having worked for just two months, I have learnt a lot and built my competence skills. Aside from my competence skills I have also developed my confidence and interpersonal relationship. I have understood what it takes to be an interior architect, meet clients' needs and I have learnt to work in a team.

Since I started interning in Lagos I have thought hard as to whether or not I should continue my study to the degree level and if the university was the correct avenue for me, but I feel that I still need to gain enough experience, confidence and electrifying enthusiasm to pursue a successful career in interior architecture. My desire to study for a course in your institution is because of the growing image of your institution not only in the UK but across the world.

Personal Statement

As a hobby, I spend most of my time going around my neighbourhood taking photos and shooting video of building and architecture structures. I was always fascinated by the unusual perspective and I love the interaction with the urban environment and structures. Over the years I started to see that my interest was more into the decoration, furniture and the ornaments that design the interior of the buildings. These hobbies developed into something more exciting for me as I started to visit furniture makers and carpenters to get understand the creative mind behind their work. From this point I already knew I wanted a career that had something to do with architecture and decoration.

In 2017, during my final year in secondary school, I told my parents that I wanted to learn interior design but my parents advised me against that and I should focus on my secondary school education. However, I knew I needed to build my skills in interior design and decoration so I opted for a balance, because I knew how important it is to express my creativeness as well as learn more about the physical world.

I told my parents that they should allow me to take up the learning of interior design during the weekend, because of my deep interest in literature and reading it was not difficult for me to combine both my academic work and weekend interior design classes. Over the years I feel I am prepared to take responsibilities and I am willing to accept guidance wherever it will aid my growth and knowledge in interior architecture.

I always try to be enthusiastic, determined and I find it easy to get on well with other people and enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new challenges and surroundings. I have confidence and am a detailed individual who always puts my best in whatever. I am very positive that I will give my full potential toward study for a degree in interior architecture.

I have always had a desire to study in the UK, because I feel schooling in the UK would offer me the right environment to explore different kinds of education from what is obtained in my country. The UK is safe to study and the environment is friendly, with a wide range of foreign students. This would provide me the opportunity to share cultural understanding especially as it relates to architecture.

I am looking forward toward a challenging career in interior architecture, and I know the career would be tasking and demanding critical and creative thinking that is why I hope to study in a school that would provide me with the much needed skills, technicalities and experience in interior architecture, while also preparing me to focus. Your school possesses all these qualities and I am willing to put in my best.

Personal Statement

My name is Olumide Smith. I am 16 years old and I live in Lagos Nigeria. My fascination for interior architecture was due to the fact that I was greatly influenced by my mother occupation. She was a filmmaker and on numerous occasions I have accompanied her to film sets. What easily caught my attention was the work of set designers. I am interested in set design because I feel that the power of how the film would turn out falls in the hands of the set designers and their ability to transform the stage.

I always feel excited when I see how designers overcome the practical challenges of set design with inventive solutions. Example of this is the way music directors would use various sets to shoot videos and it is the duty of the set designer to ensure that various scenes are creatively designed.

Growing up I fell in love with set designing and interior decoration. I have always dreamt of building a career in that field. At home during play time i would always act as the set designers and redesign our playhouse. At school I was very good with creative art subjects and I was a member of the creative art club. I took part in various art and creative design competitions. I also took part in various creative art projects in my school and in my community. The passion and desire to build a career in interior architecture continue to go higher with each passing day, because I believe that interior architecture is key in how we live.

When I told my parents that I wanted to pursue a degree in interior architecture and design it did not come to them as a surprise, rather they were amazed that I knew what I wanted to and they offered their support. After I left secondary school, I saw no need to engage in a paid job in an organization. Rather, I opted to volunteer as a creative design tutor in my local church where I teach creative art every Saturday of the week. Through this I have been able to build an avenue through which I impact the society.

Working as a volunteer has offered me the opportunity to build my confidence, my communication skills and my passion for teaching has also grown tremendously. I am positive that these skills would prove useful in a career as an interior architect. Also, I have a plan to teach young people about the impact creative art can contribute to living. At the beginning I was sceptical of travel to school in the UK, but after careful consideration I found that it would be very beneficial to my career to study for my degree in the UK. Studying in the UK offer a wide range of opportunities and it also presents a ground for exposure to new ideas.

Applying to your school gives me great pleasure and I hope your admission team will take the time to consider my application. I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Statement

From a young age, I have found myself fascinated by interior designs, furniture’s and decorative ornaments. I would constantly transform the children's room into a range of different looks and arrangements. Though my siblings whom i share the room with will always complain about it but i was always doing it. I enjoyed trying to work around the challenges of making the room always different. The desire to learn about others.

My interest in interior decoration has made me spend much of my time watching interior design and architecture programmes on discovery channels. I love watching professionals at work and it inspires me a lot both. My ultimate goal is to become an interior design expert in Nigeria, where I would combine a mixture of Africa designs, with western modern design styles.

Having grown up in Nigeria, I look forward to learning more about Western architecture and designs, and the complex ideas this can form with my own inspirations and imagination. Beyond the scope of my academic studies, I love reading innovative interior design magazines. I have already had some exposure to British designs through TV programmes, books and movies.

At school I was very interested in fine art, and I always came top of the class. During our valedictory service from secondary school, myself and my fellow student presented our project to the school. The project was a wall palette wall of fame, in which photos of teachers were hung on. I successfully designed the wall palette layout and also worked with other students to build it.

After graduation from secondary school I started work in an interior decoration design company. Though I was working there just as a junior worker, I have been given tasks to handle that I worked on independently. Working here has helped me develop excellent communication skills which I believe would be very useful in a career as an interior architect. I learnt that in additional to creative flair and technical ability, a good designer must possess excellent communication skills in order to listen to the customer and understand their vision.

Aside from creating sketches of design, in my spare time I also get involved in sport and other activities. I am a very good swimmer; I love music and cooking. I set goals for myself, which I am mentally and physically committed to. I apply this same approach to my studies, planning my time carefully and fully dedicating myself to ensure every task is completed to the best of my ability. I am very fluent in English language and I am gradually learning French and Japanese. I am looking forward to moving to the UK for my study where I would enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new culture and way of life.

I Look forward to being offered admission into your university and I am very optimistic that I would perform well both in academic work and social activities.

My name is Sofia Abraham, I enjoy expressing my creative side through painting, singing and dancing. I am also actively involved in various sport and athletic activities such as running, playing basketball and mountain climbing. However, my best sport activity is swimming, which I do almost every week to build my fitness and will power. My involvement in sport activities has always enabled me to rise above challenges and have a sharp and healthy mind.

My fascination about interior design and architecture is some that is in build. Growing up I have always made sketches and drawings of buildings, interiors and furniture’s. Many of my sketches and drawings I have made into photo frames which I hung on the wall of my room. In 2016 when my parents decided to remodel our house, I was given the challenge in designing an installation for a kitchen and also to choose suitable colour schemes, tiles and fittings. I also decorated frames of flowers and landscapes that cut from magazines and tabloids.

In the summer of 2018, I attended a youth camp program that was organized by my local church. At the summer camp I started to learn the art of photography. The summer camp offered me the opportunity to meet and work with interior decorators and creative art experts. I gained skills in photography, creating professional mood boards, I was also privileged to participate in various projects and I designed a mood board for a family bathroom.

After the summer camp, my parents got me a camera which I use for taking landscape photos and also portrait photos which I made into decorative wall frames. After I left secondary school, I enrolled for a graphic design class, where I learnt basic computer animation designing skills. Because I did not want to sit idle, while seeking admission into the university, i started to work in the local cafeteria as a customer service representative. Although working in a cafeteria is different from interior decoration, I have learnt how to be polite to clients and I understand the importance of communicating with different clients and feel that I have gained confidence.

I am looking at growing a successful career in interior architecture and studying in your school would offer me a clear path to achieving this goal and dream. After carrying out my findings, I discovered that your school not only provides a friendly learning environment but also offers student support. I hope my application to study for a degree in interior architecture is given a favourable consideration as I look forward to starting my study by September this year.

I enjoy taking the time to observe the interior of buildings around me, considering what it is I like or dislike about the interior design of buildings or structures then recording my thoughts alongside a drawing in my sketchbook.

Schooling in the UK, i hope to explore various range foreign interior architecture and understand how this was influenced by the country culture and how foreign culture has also played its part in reshaping various designs. I also want to improve my drawing and spatial skills. Currently I am attending computer graphic animation and drawing classes in Lagos Nigeria. I know this skill would come useful in building a career in interior decoration, because it would enable me to create 3D mock images and renders of designs.

Interior Architecture PS9


Personal Statement

My passion and journey into interior architecture started as a mere curiosity, which has grown to become a dream. My name is Esther Samuel. I was born in Asaba, the Delta state capital in Nigeria. I also grew up in Delta state, where I did my primary education before, I left for Lagos State where I attended an all-girls boarding school for my secondary education. I am a very reserved person with an eye for creative arts, design and fashion. In the future, my aim is to work for an interior design expert and also to set up a company that focuses on interior decoration and design.

Most of the time I am left disappointed to see people spend huge amounts of money in building magnificent houses and structures only to spoil it with poor interior design and bad colour taste. Sometimes, creating a breath-taking interior design or decoration doesn't need to cost a fortune and it becomes important that we start to put efforts into teaching people how they could create beautiful interior designs at a very cost-effective amount. The curiosity to know why some people lack design taste helped me develop a strong passion for interior design.

I derive immense pleasure and happiness when I teach people and about interior design and I find the job as an interior architect exciting. Academically, in my secondary school I was very passionate about arts and design subjects and I also love mathematics and history. All through my time in secondary school I was an active member of the school creative art and design club. In my 5th year before graduation I was made the president of the creative art and design club.

As a member of the creative art and design club I played key roles in various school arts projects and this helped me build my skills and understand more about creative arts and how they could be infused into creating beautiful interiors. At home I was very interested in watching programmes related to designing homes because I understood that designing the interior is very important whether it’s a home, school, office or any other building as it makes a place look unique and fit for purpose which it is intended for.

My enchantment with interior design and decoration always make me feel that every piece of art in a building has a dramatic role to play in contributing to the beauty of the space. What mostly intrigued me about pieces of artworks are not the artwork themself but how they filled the room, with its lighting and dramatic shadows against the bland walls creating an intense atmosphere.

Because I enjoy interior designing so much, I would want to teach it in the future, while still practicing as an interior architect. Applying to your school to study interior architecture for me is a dream come true because I have always had a great interest in interior designing. I am determined to build a successful career after graduation.

Personal Statement

I am applying to study interior architecture in your school because I want to develop a deep knowledge in interior designing, decoration and interior architecture. I am eagerly willing to learn how space in a building can be well managed and made presentable. I also want to gain knowledge and skills on how to combine different materials to make a comfortable space.

Although i have always been fascinated with colour and textures, I have find it quite a bit tasking to combine them in a perfect blend, so i would love to learn how to furnish the interior space of a building and structure, using the right colours, lights and other factors to create an eye-catching - pleasing look and feel.

The prospect of schooling in the UK is one that gives me great excitement. From the research that I have done on the internet, and through my encounter with your school African representative, I find the creative environment and the researching through the internet and your prospectus, I find the creative study friendly environment at your university appealing and interesting. Both in the curriculum of the course and the surrounding locality is something that adds to my desire and dream to study in your university.

My name is Jessica Simpson, I am 16 years old. I grew up in Lagos Nigeria. My hobbies are reading, watching TV, traveling and drawing. I can speak English language fluently and I can speak basic French. Though I was fascinated with arts, I never knew I would later find interest in a career that is related to arts.

At school I have always performed better in science related subjects such as Chemistry and Biology. But after I graduated from secondary school, I started to develop a deep interest in arts, designs and decorations, this was partly because after I graduated from secondary school i started working in a designing and decoration company.

Working in an interior designing company, was an eye opener to the wonderful opportunities a career in interior architecture possesses. I started to understand the importance of interior design and how proper mixture of colours, textures, shape and materials can make a bare building space come to life. I also learnt the importance of communicating with different clients and how to make them feel confidence with the right interior designs.

I feel that the experience that I have gained working in an interior design company, I can inject that into my academic growth. I know I will work exceptionally hard If I am considered for a place in your university.
