'Through my course I have learnt how to read and study rigorously.'



Itunuoluwa Awolowo from Nigeria is currently studying Global MBA on a Transform Together Scholarship.

'I chose Global MBA because I wanted to acquire the leadership and managerial skills needed to fast-track my career. Through my course I have learnt how to read and study rigorously.'

'I chose SHU as it is highly rated for international students and it is among the best business schools in the UK. Sheffield has a good standard of living for students at a cheaper cost than London. It is a peaceful place to stay and study, and the locals are very friendly. My favourite thing about being in the UK is how orderly and organised things are compared to where I am from.'

'Sheffield Hallam has been of great help to me during Covid-19. Through the hardship fund, I got a laptop which helped me reach my deadlines and made attending online classes easy. My favourite thing about Sheffield Hallam is the support and pastoral care available to students.'

'I found out about the Transform Together Scholarship on the University website while applying for the Global MBA. The application process is straightforward and it’s easy to apply. Almost three weeks after applying for the scholarship, I got an email that I was successful. I was overjoyed. I felt so blessed to have been selected. The Transform Together Scholarship has helped me by significantly reducing my family's financial burden, thereby giving me peace of mind, allowing me to concentrate and pursue my educational dreams without worries.'

'My advice to someone applying for the Transform Together Scholarship is to be concise when writing their personal statement to support their application.'
