“My research is important as securitisation is seen as a key tool for the revival of the EU economy”

                “My work seeks to examine the different legal solutions available for creating security interests for securitisations in England, Scotland, and France. My research is important as securitisation is seen as a key tool for the revival of the EU economy. Following the 2007/08 financial crises, there has been a significant drop in the global issuance of securitisation, as securitisation is believed to be one of the main causes of the crisis. However, due to the economic importance of securitisation, many European countries and businesses have since strived to revive securitisation in their jurisdictions through the initiation of attractive and efficient domestic legal frameworks that enable different aspects of securitisation transaction.

My research aims at revealing the strengths and weaknesses of the different legal frameworks for creating security interests for securitisations in England, Scotland, and France. The conclusions reached in my research can be useful not only for regulators and businesses in the three regimes but should illuminate the way for other European countries and businesses looking for ways to implement an efficient legal framework for creating security interests in securitisations within their jurisdictions.”

“My decision to come to the University of Aberdeen is borne out of my conviction that it is a citadel of learning”

                “There is no doubt that the University of Aberdeen provides one of the best educational experiences in the world. The stunning campus, the conducive learning atmosphere, and the team of quality academic experts attest to this. My decision to come to the University of Aberdeen is borne out of my conviction that it is a citadel of learning. The University has since proven to be an ideal place where I can be encouraged and supported to attain my dream of achieving high-level academic excellence and professional development.  The useful guidance of my supervisor has greatly helped my progress, and he has been extraordinarily generous with his time.  He engages in my research and continually challenges me to develop it to the highest quality.

Furthermore, the University of Aberdeen afforded me the opportunity to embark on this important research by granting me the prestigious Elphinstone scholarship. The scholarship has helped me to fund my research. I wouldn’t have been able to be here if not for the scholarship.”

“Aberdeen is a beautiful city. It is no surprise that the city has won Britain in Bloom for a record-breaking 10 times!”

“I love living in Aberdeen. It is a beautiful and friendly city that always has interesting events that bring people together. There are many parks – such as Hazlehead, Seaton and Duthie Parks – which are situated at the heart of the city.  It’s no surprise that Aberdeen city has won Britain in Bloom for a record-breaking 10 times! I have found the city to be very welcoming and beautiful. There is already an influential Nigerian community in Aberdeen – ANRG (The Aberdeen Nigerian Research Group) of which I am part of. It feels great to be part of a group that works to help fellow Nigerian researchers in their work and to be able to socialise together. The group aims to support, encourage and inspire Nigerian researchers in Aberdeen.”

“The University of Aberdeen has helped to unlock my research potential”

“The world-class teaching at the University of Aberdeen has left me in no doubt that I will leave as a highly qualified and employable professional. The University of Aberdeen has helped to unlock my research potential. I hope to become a successful international researcher, lecturer and legal consultant after graduation. I would love to continue in my current line of research as I have already noted a number of issues that require further research. ”
