Although I was always keen on earning an international degree from a reputable university in the UK, I was unable to meet the financial requirements. I learnt about Nubi educational counselling from a relative who is a reputable client. From my first interaction with the team to date, I have found them to be very pleasant, knowledgeable and providing good tutelage and guidance.
I was informed about scholarship opportunities in my area of interest from prestigious universities in the UK. The support I received during the admission process to the visa application was enormous. I have been able to realise my dreams by being awarded a full scholarship at the University of Exeter. The relationship has been sustained even after commencement of studies and I can feel the genuine interest in my career as I forge ahead.

From the moment I finished secondary school, Nubi Agency became a word synonymous with progress in my household. It is because of this group of dedicated and caring people that I was able to figure out that A-levels was the next step in the right direction upon graduation from my alma matter. Not only did they encourage me to take A-levels, they also found me a prestigious school which pleased my parents and I alike.
As my student visa was processed with the utmost scrutiny, the staff would work extra hours just to make sure everything was in place. I was always treated like family during my sessions at Nubi and all my questions were answered with respect.
After my A-levels, I went to Nubi once again to help with my student visa for university due to their vast experience in the business. I was not disappointed as I am now an Electrical Engineering undergraduate in University College London. I strongly recommend Nubi Agency for any aspiring students, as you will never get disappointed and always get what you deserve.
Presently, I am undergoing an LLM course in Maritime Law in the University of Southampton, after being called to the Nigerian Bar as a Barrister of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in November 2011. The experience and the fact that I have developed my personal way of studying and taking in as much of the University experience, both educationally and socially, I would say, can be attributed to the fact that I had a good foundation due to where I did my undergraduate studies in LLB Law: University of Essex.
Nubi Education helped me a great deal. At first, most schools were reluctant to accept me because I was too young for a Foundation course in Law, which is required as an alternative to an A-Levels degree for a pre-degree University course. Not only was I accepted and made comfortable and elected as a Student Representative for the International year students, but a guardian was also appointed for me to monitor my progress and make sure I was settling in right, until I turned 18. The University also had a good curriculum for Law, specializing in all of the needed subjects that made it quite easy for me not to have any issues when I attended the Nigerian Law School.
At first instinct, I had originally wanted to apply to stay in an en suite accommodation, which would have entitled me to have my own bathroom, but also kept me away from making friends fast. Nubi Education advised me to apply for an accommodation with more people, where the bathroom and kitchen was shared for my Foundation year, in order to make friends and establish myself first, after which I could change if I wanted to. I am glad to say that I definitely made more friends, not only with Nigerian citizens but with people from other countries.
All in all, I can definitely say that Nubi Education played vital roles in my admissions to University of Essex and University of Southampton for my undergraduate and post graduate degree education. I am grateful and I thank God for their help.

My first degree was at Babcock University. I am presently studying an Msc. in International Business and Entrepreneurship. On my first day, the reception by the Student Union was delightful, I was immediately given my room and all the best support I needed. I am impressed with the University of Essex, the teaching methodology and value of team work is exceptionally challenging, the motivation i get from the environment that is bursting with intellectuals is also intriguing.
I also love my course, i usually tell my friends that “this is the best course i have ever chosen”. my tutor has helped me to build up myself academically, and the clubs and support groups help to put to practice all that I have learnt. Nubi Educational did not only focus on my Visa Application (which most agencies do), they most importantly helped me to find the best possible module to fit my goals in life, they are highly professional and are confident in their abilities (which is of a very high reputation), I will most definitely recommend them to any student seeking for a bright future study abroad.

My Life in Oswestry- by Zainab Oduntan
Life in Oswestry School would forever be a memorable and amazing journey which, by the end of it all, has made me grow as a person. When I first got here in September 2011, the work I faced was more challenging than anything I had ever been exposed to. However, eventually enough, I adapted to the academic life and found it to be more straight-forward, especially after receiving fantastic help from my teachers. They were always hell-bent on making sure I got it right; my chemistry teacher, Mrs Renwick, especially took her time in explaining any of my doubts and I always left her classes surer of myself and my capabilities. This is among the many reasons why chemistry remains my favourite subject. Still, there’s a lot more to Oswestry School than academics. To take our minds off of work for some time, we get to organise school events such as spring ball and summer ball. These events particularly give us something to look forward to and they are always exciting periods in which we girls get to go out shopping for shoes and dresses to look really elegant while the boys look smart in their tuxedos.
My time in Guinevere House has not only exposed me to new people and cultures, it has also opened me up to new minds. Two years ago, I would never have imagined that I would be hand-picked to head a boarding house of forty-five amazing girls, who would look up to me and follow the examples I set.
Through my experiences with them, I now understand what it means to have ‘true friends’ – people that will always be there for you whenever you need them. The house parents in particular are very caring and have always been there to listen and give advice when necessary. With the regular activities they organize such as paint-balling and horse riding, boredom is never an issue. As a sixth former, I also have the opportunity to go out at the weekends to see family and friends or visit the town centre, which is ideal for hanging out and socializing with others.
This has been my first boarding experience and I am thrilled to mention that if I had the chance to do it all over again, I would – it would always be my second home. Oswestry School has moulded me from my shy, introverted self into the person I have always aspired to be.
