HeMoreEddie attended the University of Birmingham to study school administration, the preserve of white English students. He was told in the interview that he could not do the course successfully, because it was designed for white students exclusively. He was admitted conditionally. He met other foreign students doing various diploma courses. He met a female student from Jamaica who was doing work and study program.. The lady was frightened after she was told that the course was hard and designed only for white students. She thought she was not good enough to do the course but Eddie convinced her to complete her studies. They became good friends and she introduced Eddie to her work place. During the year there were constant reminders that he was black and inferior and therefore deserved less credit for his work compared to his white classmates.
