Theresa's story | Starting a business after graduating

As part of our Fantastic Student Friday series, we shared Theresa's story.

Theresa's story

Theresa Olloh from Nigeria, a graduate of our University of Surrey International Study Centre and founder of e-commerce business Hamalie, tells us how her experience studying in the UK influenced the work she’s doing today to give a global platform to independent makers, artisans, and designers from Africa.  

“We connect global customers to really unique, sustainable African goods. And these brands are representing countries, they’re representing tribes of people, languages.” - Theresa  

95% of our students who completed their programme at the University of Surrey International Study Centre this year have been offered degree places with our partner, University of Surrey. With our shared focus on graduate employability, we look forward to more success stories like Theresa's in the future.
