I came to the University of Nottingham from Nigeria, because I wish to develop the knowledge and skills from the MSc Green and Sustainable Chemistry course to help me join the struggle to achieve a clean and sustainable environment in Nigeria.
One of the best things about studying here is that every programme encourages and favours every student irrespective of their individual background. There are also state-of-the-art facilities in the University for modern teaching and research in clean energy studies, including experts in different areas. I am confident that I will greatly benefit from exposure to these modern facilities and expertise.
I’ve also enjoyed being part of the Students’ Union; another amazing team that I found supportive since I came into the University. The union has been of good help to me, and I’ve joined the football club in my spare time.
I am most grateful to both academic and non-academic staff of the School of Chemistry; they are always willing to help any time I am faced with a challenge.
After I have completed my MSc course, I wish to progress to a PhD in this area of chemistry, and my ultimate ambition is to establish an ethanol production plant in Nigeria. Ethanol has been an un-accessed means of economy in Nigeria which if properly harnessed will not only provide a means of revenue generation but also help to solve unemployment and environmental problems.
I am very proud of this course and would gladly encourage others considering this course, to strengthen the renewable and clean energy campaign in the world at large.
