Seven Sisters - Our work in Nairobi

Jul

26

While in Nairobi the Seven Sisters carried out some recruitment work on behalf of the school and university. This work included a University of Sussex Open Day within the Uniserv Education offices, a Sussex Pre-departure and Q&A session and a special talk in partnership with The Arena Kenya looking at the impact of volunteering/fundraising. During the latter, our students also spoke about their experiences of University and there was a presentation to the runner-up and winner of the Sussex ‘One World, One Voice’ video competition.

 

Our students did so well presenting and we are extremely proud of them! Well done team!! They even managed to persuade a prospective student to change their choice of university to Sussex.

 

We would also like to congratulate Sita the winner of the ‘One World, One Voice’ video competition. Sita’s prize for winner the competition is to come to Sussex and attend some International Summer School sessions. Sita is actually here on campus right now, the Student Experience team are looking forward to meeting Sita again tomorrow morning!

 

While most of the team attended the volunteering/fundraising talk, Julie and Karen headed to Strathmore University where Julie was giving a seminar on migration, poverty and development drawing on her own work in 3 African countries (Ethiopia, Ghana and Zimbabwe). While at Strathmore Julie and Karen also gave a talk about life at the University of Sussex, BMEc courses and scholarships.

 

The work carried out in Nairobi also gave the team the chance to meet up with Sussex Alumnus Naliaka a former supervisee of Julie’s. The team also met Chidima Atueyi a current Sussex student and International Student Ambassador who is studying LLB Law, who helped out in some of talks. It was great to meet Chidima and hear her experiences as an international student at Sussex.

 

It was a great experience for all involved to represent the University of Sussex in another country. It was so nice to meet all of the amazingly helpful and friendly staff at Uniserv Education and also to meet those interested in applying to Sussex and those who have already accepted a place. We look forward to welcoming you all to Sussex in the near future!
