As a Chevening Scholar one of the best decisions I have made for my professional growth was to apply to a masters programme at The University of Nottingham. The key factors to choose this university were the high quality of education and research that are offered for my field.

It is a privilege to study in one of the top universities of the UK that allows a huge access to cultural exchange and networking with the students and professors. I considered that this is an outstanding opportunity to acquire the knowledge and experience that will let me contribute and work for the benefit of my country in the science field.
