Nigerian man becomes the best in European university after 16 US and UK rejections

Meanwhile, previously reported that a Nigerian student had emerged as the best student in a European university after 16 rejections from US and UK institutions.

The man identified as Ifeanyi Obi shared on his LinkedIn page that he had finished his undergraduate studies in Nigeria with a 2.2.

Obi's result served as a bottleneck as all foreign applications he made to further his studies were turned down including the ones made to US, UK and Canada universities.

An undeterred Obi said he applied to study in another European university, in Cyprus precisely and succeeded.

He not only finished with a higher honour result but went on to become the best student of the year and also bagged a placement for PhD studies.
