Ozioma Soludo

(Law, 400 Level)

'What I love about studying Law at Nile University is the student centered learning. The use of practical teaching methods and experiential learning has made me more than ready to face life after school.'

Sunshine Onifade

(Law, 500 Level)

'Upon graduating high school in 2014, I wanted to go to a more established University. So, Nile University, being a new University at the time, was not one of my top choices.  However, five years later, I believe that coming to Nile was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Both the academic and non-academic staff have always been really helpful; they have helped me overcome many academic-related or other challenges.

Studying Law at Nile University has also given me the opportunity to impact my society through my participation in the law Clinic’s pro bono projects.'
