"My Name is Samson Toye Obiodun, I am 20 years old and I come from Nigeria. I have been studying at SMK for one year now in International Business Bachelors level programme. Previously I have studied in one of Universities in Belarus and was highly disappointed in the education level provided there, so when I got to SMK it was a huge relieve to find here modern study environment, highly qualified professors and carrying administration. SMK is the place where everybody knows me by first name and where I feel like at home. Small class size of only 16 students allows me to feel comfortable to ask questions and makes learning much easier and faster. I have found tons of friends and participating in a number of clubs which are active here at SMK. The school is taking us on the field trips to get to know the country and providing various activities to ease the integration in to the life here. I will be spending my second year in Portugal and then coming back to SMK to complete my last year and I will obtain a Joint degree from two different universities. I am very happy that I chose this school because I believe I found here everything I needed for successful start of my career."
