Success Stories

Kunle Ifesanya

Architect and urban development specialist Kunle Ifesanya discusses how WES credential evaluations, tools, and resources helped him achieve his professional goals in the U.S.

“The WES evaluation is like saying, ‘Okay, she has the equivalent grade point in the U.S., although she received her grades in a different country.’ WES gave me confidence and assured me that my education was worth something.”

“When the opportunity to participate in the Skilled Immigrant Integration Program (SIIP) came, we immediately decided to apply. SIIP really catalyzed everything we were trying to accomplish.”
