Why did you choose to study with NCUK?

I intended to progress to Medical School in Europe, and NCUK was one of the few offering pathways to European medical schools.

How has your NCUK experience helped you to get to where you are today?

It gave me the skills I required to succeed in university.

What are your goals for the future?

To work in a UN organisation e.g. WHO, UNDP, UNICEF etc.

Do you have any advice for future NCUK students?

Have frank conversations about work with people who are in the career you want to be in in the future. Make sure these individuals have worked in this career for at least 10 years in the country you intend to work in, and also have a conversation with someone who has worked 3-5 years.
