Ayo Dawodu

Ayo Dawodu from Lagos in Nigeria is now working in London as a web developer after studying for an MSc in Networking and Internet Systems at Lancaster University.

Practical course content

"Computers are perhaps the best man-made tool we humans have," says Ayo, who studied at the University's School of Computing and Communications. "The possibilities they offer just fascinate me and spurs an unending interest in them. Hence, this being my chosen field of study. I am naturally interested in knowledge; generally in how stuff works. I'm practical like that."

Constant development

"Bursting with streams of intellect, the School made my time at university a much valued one," Ayo explains. "Quite challenging times, but it brought about a better me. I also explored the opportunity to make valuable connections with a few of the vast majority of brilliant minds I was surrounded with."

Ayo enjoyed his time in the city of Lancaster. Speaking of the surrounding areas of the campus, he recalls fondly: "Lancaster was just perfect, no unnecessary buzz, just serene, it was the perfect learning environment. While that may sound so serious, we do get the chilled-out times as well."

New horizons

With his career on track, Ayo has no regrets about studying abroad.

"The time spent at Lancaster University brought about added knowledge, which is definitely a plus," he says. "I look forward to applying this knowledge in everyday living to primarily add value to life."
