Swansea University held pre-departure briefings for students coming on board this 2014 session from July 3-10, 2014.
A Swansea team visited Abuja, Portharcourt and Lagos for one–on-one sessions with confirmed candidates scheduled to resume in the next academic session. The team was led by Emma Frearson Emmanuel, Head of International Development at Swansea University.
Speaking in Lagos during a lull in a tightly packed schedule, Ms Frearson said “Nigeria and Ghana account for the bulk of our African student population and they provide us with a pool of exceptional talent.”
Speaking further she added that her trip was “to meet with prospective students and offer them advice on choices of accommodation, how they can open bank accounts, the very important information they need about visa applications and anything that they might require.”
