I regularly visit the region and love meeting new students and families personally to give advice and guidance. My visit schedule is on the NTU in Africa webpage or you can register with us and we’ll let you know when I’m next visiting. If you can't meet me in person just email me your queries or we could even arrange a Skype session.
