Bursary recipients

The Global Health and Social Medicine program at King's College London will help me towards my goal of working for a global organisation such as the WHO or UNDP. The bursary was an unexpected and welcome addition to this opportunity and I am very excited for my years ahead at King's.

Jiwon (Sophie) Lee, BA Global Health & Social Medicine, 2018-19

The BSc will be a strong base for my future studies, providing an understanding of medicine, health and experience of working in laboratory-based fields such as neuroscience or pharmacology. This bursary gives me the chance to expand my learning opportunities.
