After graduating with a first-class degree in pharmacy, a black man receives scholarships to four UK universities at the same time.

With his First-Class degree in Pharmacy, an African man named Adebisi Yusuff Adebayo was offered scholarships to four (4) world-class universities in the United Kingdom.

The young man began his higher education adventure at the University of Ibadan in the South-West and graduated with an amazing first-class Bachelor of Pharmacy degree (B.Pharm).

Adebisi applied for scholarships in the United Kingdom after receiving such an exceptional degree, as his enthusiasm for research remains his top goal.

According to him, he applied for scholarships at four prominent UK universities: the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Southampton, and his applications were accepted by all four.

First, the University of Cambridge offered him a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Population Health Sciences, followed by an MPH in Global Health. The Universities of Southampton and Oxford both offered him MScs in Global Health and Global Health Science and Epidemiology.

Nonetheless, Yusuff, who was left to make his own decision, has decided to enroll at the prestigious University of Oxford on a fully financed scholarship, according to his LinkedIn page.

He shared the story on his LinkedIn page, writing:

“It is an honor to be one of the eight Commonwealth Shared Scholars nominated by the University of Oxford and to have been accepted into this highly competitive program,”

“It has been an interesting journey filled with mixed emotions. My story is another proof that your background is never a limit. I am super-excited about this new phase of my life, especially with the opportunity to build further capacity in global health research in this world-class learning environment,”

“I am grateful to God, my mentors, family and friends, funders, teachers, lecturers, and everyone that has contributed to my journey,” Yusuff added.
