I chose to stay on at King’s to do my PhD having thoroughly enjoyed my time as an undergraduate student.

 

Both the quality of the working environment at the university and the city itself attracted me to stay on for four more years. I have learnt that the key to successfully completing a PhD is having an intellectually enriching environment that is constantly challenging you to new heights. I have been exposed to the forefront of research in the iron metabolism field; I have had the opportunity to present my findings at an international meeting in Canada as well as numerous opportunities within King’s.

 

In addition to the research training that I have gained, I have also had the opportunity to mentor undergraduate students. These experiences have provided me with valuable transferable skills which will help me in my career as a researcher. King’s is a truly multidisciplinary school with world-renowned experts in a broad range of fields, who are willing to support and encourage prospective students. Doing a PhD is just the beginning and King’s is the perfect place to start!

I decided to pursue my postgraduate study at King's because of its leading position in the field of Nutritional Sciences. My studies are supported by Oversea Research Students Award (ORSAS) and Anadamahidol Foundation (Thailand). These scholarships have been a great help for me since all expenses are covered, including bursaries for conference attendance. I find many things attractive about the College such as its central location in London, its high reputation, its international atmosphere and its lecturers and researchers who are experts in the field.

Diabetes & Nutritional Sciences (Research Division) MPhil/PhD

I qualified as a doctor and after completing my internship in Surgery and Medicine I realised my passion for research in my discipline. I opted for an MPhil in Biochemistry and came top in the course. During this time I was working as a research assistant and teaching undergraduate medical students.


As my basic area of research was diabetes so my dream was to do a PhD in Diabetes. I went through the publications from the Diabetes Research group at Kings and realized that this was the place where I wanted to study. I really wanted to continue my research using the techniques that I have already learned and also to learn in a new exciting environment.


I chose Kings because of the world renowned reputation that is second to none. I knew my commitment to my speciality but being a mother of two kids the dream to complete a PhD at one of the top universities of the world could only be a miracle. I got the admission but I could not fund my studies - luckily I was awarded the King's Overseas Research Scholarship. I can never fully express my gratitude to the Graduate School for making my dream come true.


Every day as I walk through the passages of Guy's campus I feel blessed that I got this opportunity to study at such a great institute. The supervisors and professors at King's are the best in their fields. Being a doctor also I realize that the research at King's in the field of medicine is par excellence. The conferences and seminars delivered here are from those people who are among the top researchers of the world. What else can a student wish for? Those who are at King's know how lucky they are and I am one of them.
