Choosing quality and freedom: Story of Godswill Ikegbu

Godswill was accepted into all four universities to which he applied – and he chose the University of Eastern Finland. The deciding factor was the possibility to study for a Master’s Degree in Medical Physics on a full scholarship. As “a people person”, Godswill has enjoyed his time in Kuopio as part of a diverse student body consisting of people from all over the world. He graduated in June 2021 and now hopes to find a job corresponding to his education and skill set and/or continue on as a doctoral student.

Nature and the four seasons were also exciting and attractive qualities in Finland. Back home we basically have two seasons – the rainy and dry seasons. I wanted to see and touch snow for the first time. I had only seen it in films.
