A search on internet for a University that could offer me an opportunity
to complete my Master of Science (MSc.) Degree in Sustainable Energy
Engineering led me to discover Atlantic International University (AIU).
This was at a point when I lost contact with my thesis project supervisor for
my MSc, Degree with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden. Though I
successfully completed the MSc Degree, the preliminary contact I made with the
AIU had left a lasting impression on me. The commitment exhibited by the Admission
Counsellor in terms of emails and making international phone calls to me in an
effort to clarify and clear all my doubts and concerns was remarkable. I
remember once mentioning the Advisor that if the same care and concern shown to
me was the also being shown to students, then AIU should be a kind of university
that everyone would wish to enrol with.

When I
completed my MSc. Degree program, I immediately contacted my AIU Admission
Advisor on the possibility of enrolling for a Doctorate Degree and not a Master
of Science Degree that I had earlier enquired on. The guidance on how to make
the application was immediately given, and without wasting time I submitted my
application. To my total surprise, a Letter of Admission to the Doctor of
Philosophy (PhD) program in Renewable Energy was issued to me within three (3)
working days of submitting my application. After paying my enrolment fee, I
found myself allocated a Tutor and later an Advisor, and Phase I assignments
were uploaded to my AIU Virtual Campus Student Section.

I was able
to complete all my Phase I assignments on time and it was so impressive to see
the Academic Progress made under the Student Section. Phase II was, admittedly,
not as easy as Phase I was and it was disheartening to see the stagnation of my
Academic Progress. The development of my curriculum and doing the subsequent
assignments was slow due to a number of reasons, such as, the additional
responsibilities I was given at the office, some challenges at home and the
challenge of adapting to andragogy way of education after having done all my
previous learning under the pedagogy way of education. However, my Tutor was
always at hand through phone calls and emails to support, encourage and help me
make progress.

conclusion, I would like to state that based on my experience, AIU has the best
Academic Staff (Academic Counsellors, Tutors, Advisors, etc.) who are genuinely
interested in seeing the students succeed, the best online library for all
academic specializations, and unlimited possibilities for human development and
initiative. AIU is a University I would recommend anyone who wishes
to pursue tertiary education to choose. Who knew that I would one day obtain a
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) qualification? Thanks to AIU who has made it
