Studying for a master’s in Management heralded a change of career for Adebola Adedeji. Her first degree at the University of Lagos was in Physiology but she decided to change direction and enter the world of business.

“I always wanted to study abroad,” she explains. “I researched my options and looked at university rankings and found Southampton had a good reputation for Management. I also attended a presentation in Nigeria by the University’s International Office which helped me to make up my mind.”

Adebola had members of her extended family in London who helped her settle into life in the UK before she started her studies on the south coast. “I was a little homesick to start with but soon met new people and made friends in Southampton when I got started on my degree. It was a challenge as I didn’t have a background in business but it was a great experience, and there is plenty of support if you need it.”

She has now secured a job at RBS and is looking forward to starting work in banking.
