Research project: Fraud in Kenya's financial sector

"I was working out an admission to a South African University when a friend of mine told me that I should send my research proposal to Nottingham Trent University. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to afford it. But I decided to put in my application. I was pleasantly surprised when NTU responded within a short space of time and before I knew it the admission process was over within a month and I was here.

"I'm so glad I made the decision to join NTU. I've received great support from my supervisory team which is such a wonderful blend of people with different skills, expertise, experience and knowledge, all shaping my PhD thesis in a unique direction. I enjoy a serene personal working space, excellent facilities and access to all kinds of information. There is strong IT support in the University which makes my research experience a fruitful one. Other than academic support, the non-academic administrative support has been excellent, efficient and effective. Studying for a PhD in accounting, my areas of interest are fraud and forensic accounting.

"NTU has opened up a world of opportunities to me, affording me a chance to also teach in the undergraduate and graduate programs as I pursue my research degree. Being a career lecturer, this opportunity has kept me in touch with the classroom, providing me with continuity in my career even as I attend the research program. The combination of research and teaching has been an enriching experience."
