Brilliant Nigerian Lady bags PhD without Masters degree, celebrates unique achievement

A brilliant Nigerian Lady, Ihilesen Opeyemi Ehimiaghe has achieved an exceptional feat in the United Kingdom after earning a Doctorate degree (PhD) in Law from Lancaster University, UK, without having a Master of Law degree.

Ihilesen Opeyemi Ehimiaghe celebrated her achievement on Linkedin noting that she was given a Master’s degree waiver after earning her Bachelor’s of Law degree with an outstanding performance.

Ihilesen Opeyemi Ehimiaghe was the best graduating student at Lancaster University’s Faculty of Law in 2017 after bagging outstanding first-class honours.

As a recognition of her exceptional performance, she was granted a Master’s degree waiver to allow her to enrol for a PhD immediately. She was also granted several scholarships and funding awards to pursue her Doctorate of Law degree.

“I was conferred with a Doctorate in Law (PhD) from Lancaster University. When I started my PhD in 2017, after receiving a master’s waiver on account of excellent academic performance, I looked forward to this day with anticipation,” she wrote on Linkedin.
