#Throwbackthursday: Class Trip.

For #Throwbackthursday, here’s the ID badge-with this stunning photo 😀- from when I went on a class trip to the UK House of Lords as a Postgraduate student at Coventry University in November 2008. We also attended a lecture at the London School of Economics, which is my idea of a fun day 😶

I gave Coral in ‘Colour Me Coral’ a lot of my own experiences as a Nigerian student in the UK. The experiences which stood out to me include

-Referring to my Lecturers by their first names.

-The Library always having the book I was looking for. If it was in use, I could reserve it so I was guaranteed to be the next person who borrowed it.

-Being treated with dignity and spoken to with respect by Lecturers. There was a general sense that the Lecturers wanted you to succeed and were always available whenever I had questions about coursework.

-I received my certificate on the day of my graduation. You might not think this is a big deal, but…if you attended University in Nigeria, you might see things my way.

I will probably have to do another post about my Nigerian undergraduate experience. But…not today.

Have a great day.
