INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT MY TRC EXPERIENCE BY ELED WEHIB MOHAMMED As an Ethiopian student in TRC who has spent most of my schooling years outside of my own country, I can say that studying in TRC has been an amazing experience. I intend to study economics then work at an NGO level within the international development sector. I have received around 7 offers including McMaster University in Canada and Manchester University in the UK. It is nourishing academically but also socially with the tens of amazing people you meet. Nigeria itself is such a welcoming nation but TRC is the place to go as an international student not because of the different internationally recognized programs but also due to the people, whom I have been honored to become friends with.

PLACEMENT As we begin the term, I will like to welcome all students to the final lap of the 2021/2022 academic session. Please note that university applications have all been submitted and most students have received offers from top universities around the world. The offers are subject to your final grades and you are expected to meet the conditions before an admission can be confirmed. So please start the term with the intention to put in your best academically. In addition, the college is always ready to provide the necessary support needed for all our students to get admitted into their choice universities. Please be informed also, that we have partner universities that we can still submit applications to in case you want more options. Finally, please ensure you check your emails at least twice daily and that you inform me immediately there is a change in your admission status or you get a message from a university. Let us always be your first call for all university placement matters. We will walk you through it all with pleasure. Shade Aworinde Placement Officer
