August 31, 2014


I Bonga Wellington Garikai, a native of Gokomere Mission in Masvingo, Zimbabwe have been enrolled at Atlantic International University for a Doctor of Philosophy in Economics degree which I completed satisfactorily. I have found learning with AIU so welcoming; my ambitions have been achieved of attaining higher level education. Since I completed my MSc Economics degree, I have been busy hunting for scholarships to study PhD which I failed to secure. As I grew up and my family responsibility increasing, my ambition to study higher faded, and to cover for this I then entered into research article writing of which many of my articles were published in free article publishing sites.

Through reading and researching I then met, AIU adverts, which I later followed to explore. I then later discovered many successful business persons and prominent figures both in my country and abroad who have studied with the University. This guaranteed me, to pursue my studies with university. The issue of accreditation came into my mind which I later ruled out for my ambition to be achieved. Through experience from where I have been learning even secondary school, I knew of many people who studied on their own and later could attain higher grades on GCE Ordinal level and GCE Advanced level. I concluded that learning is not a matter of where you learnt (or which awarding university), but how much effort you put in learning, and learning the right things and having interest in learning as you advance your knowledge. A proper student is the one who have high affinity for knowledge NOT one who passes exams from claiming high quality institutions with selected syllabus.

With AIU, learning is done at your own pace, you are linked to cooperative staff, supplied with learning material, allowed to design your curriculum to suit your strength, fees payment is in subscriptions which makes smooth payment, and finally you can study while working and from wherever you are in the world.
I recommend anyone who needs to pursue a degree to choose AIU. To AIU, I say thank you for making me achieve one of my life goals. Please continue to expand in various parts of the world and preach the gospel of prosperity.
