"I started applying in 2019. Some I got admissions but no scholarships. For this one, I applied last year but was rejected and I went back again to apply this year which the Lord smiled upon me.
I got admission to most schools in the UK like University of Leeds, University of Essex, University of Aberdeen, University of Aberystwyth, University of Sheffield, Queensland University and Wageningen University in Netherlands but no scholarships or they came with little scholarship of about £5,000 pounds until I got this one which was fully funded."
