A Nigerian man, Henry Ibitolu, is starting his year on a very good foot as he got a joint-funded scholarship for his PhD in future cities engineering from both the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow.
He said he is truly blessed to have secured the opportunity shortly after he completed a freely funded master’s degree.
Henry said that having to study at one of the top schools in the world is a big dream come true for him. It should be noted that the young man has started his programme and looks forward to the future with great hope.
The Nigerian man added that he will explore methods to make cities more energy-efficient through the knowledge he will be gathered in both institutions.
A part of his post read:
“In a year filled with uncertainties, moving directly onto a funded Ph.D. upon completing a fully-funded MSc is a blessing I am forever grateful to God for.”
