High Commissioner with JCUB students.

The Nigerian High Commissioner Ambassador Anderson Madubike paid a visit to James Cook University Brisbane.

The Nigerian High Commissioner Ambassador Anderson Madubike paid a visit to James Cook University Brisbane (JCUB) to see first-hand the top tier university experience our Nigerian students receive. The High Commissioner’s visit solidified the strong partnership JCUB has fostered with the wider Nigerian community and empowered our Nigerian cohort which has continued to grow with each intake.

The High Commissioner toured our extensive modern facilities where he experienced JCUB’s community spirit and fantastic location in the heart of the beautiful city of Brisbane and was impressed with the array of extra-curricular activities on offer to our students. Ambassador Madubike met with JCUB’s current and alumni cohort of Nigerian students who shared their stories of their time studying with JCUB and how they’ve benefitted from the 1:1 support and high teaching quality. He ended his time with the students by giving a passionate speech to challenge them to always be proud Nigerians that represent their country as well as this prestigious university they have been welcomed into.

JCUB have a strong partnership with the Abia State Government in Nigeria and have worked closely with the Abia State Scholarship Board to assist students with additional funding to be able to attend JCUB. By meeting with the High Commissioner, doors will open for other state government heads to partner with JCUB and allow us to educate students from all over Nigeria.

JCUB would also like to take this opportunity to thank Matthias Ehizua – the owner of OAA Study and one of JCUB’s closest Nigerian partners – for his attendance at our special event.
