We are fortunate enough at the University to be able to host visitors from around the world for tours, conferences and events. Last April, EIC and Edinburgh Napier held their first Agent Conference, and we welcomed Navitas staff and agents to the campus to share with them what we do, and show them a little bit more about student life in this fair city.
We’ve asked a few people who came to tell us about their time. We start today with Kelechi Ekpemu, who works for one of our key partners, TG Marchnata in Nigeria.
Hi, I am Kelechi Ekpemu from Nigeria; I attended the first Destination Edinburgh International Agent Conference in 2016.
This was my first trip to the United Kingdom and I was super excited. My expectations were very high. I was looking forward to seeing what the Capital of Scotland looked like. On arrival as I expected, I was warmly welcomed at the airport. On my way to the hotel, I kept on smiling as I beheld a very beautiful city indeed.
We had a well-planned Itinerary. We visited all three campuses at Craiglockhart, Sighthill and Merchiston, which have state of the art facilities.
It wasn’t all about the University though! I had been looking forward to the Ceilidh Dance and it was great fun. We also climbed up the Arthurs Seat, played golf, had the Scotch Whisky experience too and went on a bus tour round the city. OMG, I wasn’t going to forget the meals! Edinburgh is a very cultural city with lots of different meals beautifully prepared.
Edinburgh is the one tourist destination I would definitely visit again and again.
