Smart Sistas' celebrate graduate success

SUCCESS: The Oredipe sisters

FOUR SISTERS are celebrating after graduating from Nottingham Trent University in the space of 18 months.

The sisters – Tosin (23), twins Kehinde and Taiwo (26) and the most recent graduate, Adebola (28) all studied at the university and achieved graduate success in record time.

While studying at NTU, the siblings, from Nigeria, lived together in a flat in Nottingham.

Speaking on the experience, Taiwo said: “Being at the university at the same time was helpful because it meant we could proofread each other’s work and we were there to encourage one another."

"When it felt like the stresses of studying were becoming a bit much, we always had each other to fall back on. We had great family times at the parks, cinema and dinners, which made Nottingham feel more like a second family home to us,” said Taiwo.

Despite studying different undergraduate degrees – which varied in length – in the UK and Nigeria, the sisters finished their courses at the same time and decided to plan their master’s degrees together.

Taiwo said while looking for a place to study they considered factors such as living in a city that was affordable, safe and one that had a friendly environment.

“NTU has done well for us as we are all now employed in our different career paths in Nigeria. We want to make our parents more proud than ever most importantly because we are four girls,” continued Taiwo.

Adebola added: “Every moment at NTU was worthwhile. I am glad I made the decision to come to the university for my master’s.”

Although Adebola was unable to attend the graduation ceremony in December, due to moving back home to Nigeria, she will be framing her certificate in a special place at home.
