THE UNIVERSITY of Chichester has rewarded a student from Uganda who came to England to realise her ambition of becoming a nurse.

Vice-chancellor Prof Clive Behagg presented a trophy for ‘outstanding progression to higher education’ to Musana Kibirige at the Further Education Sussex awards in recognition of her determination and commitment.

The 29-year-old is taking an access diploma in health and social care at Sussex Downs College and is aiming to study adult nursing at university.

Prof Behagg said: ‘She juggles her studies with work for 28 hours a week at a care home for people who suffer from dementia as well as a range of physical disabilities. Where necessary, she uses her annual leave to make sure she does not miss a session at college.

‘Musana is a great role model for everyone who ever aspired to achieve success.’
