I t was by God’s intervention and sheer coincidence that while surfing the internet in May 2013, I came upon your website. I had never heard about Atlantic International University (AIU) before. I had been enrolled in a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) program since 2005 at the University of the West Indies in St. Augustine, Trinidad but it was not meeting my expectations. Because of my passion for persons infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, my dissertation at the Master’s level was on that topic.
I was fortunate to be assigned a very competent foreign supervisor who had just joined the staff at the university. He was an HIV/AIDS advocate who was very knowledgeable about the topic so I felt that I was about to accomplish. Things were progressing well until he had to leave because his contract was not renewed. Subsequently I was assigned another supervisor who did little to assist me. I started losing interest in my studies and just then I learnt about AIU.
I contacted AIU shortly after and was met by quick responses and helpful personnel who made the entire process quite easy. I resumed my studies with great enthusiasm, all with the aim of completing it within the scheduled time. Feedback in all areas was prompt, comments were forthcoming and I felt very comfortable as I continued striving to achieve my goals.
During the relocation process as my family and I took up residence in the United States, I was unable to work as diligently as I started but the ambition was always inside of me to complete my studies, if for no other reason but for personal gratification.
To God be the glory! Viola la, I have done it. As of now, I shall have the PhD conferred on me. It has always been my dream. I have achieved.
Thanks to all members of your team, my advisor, Dr Valcin, other members of the Engineering faculty, my tutors, and the office staff. They have been tremendous, always willing to assist in any way possible making the journey easy.
What a superb place of learning! Hats off to all at AIU!
