Carnegie PhD Scholar awarded Robertson Medal, 2020-21
Issam can you tell us why you chose your degree course? I am a qualified pharmacist abroad and have some experience as I worked in hospitals and community pharmacy when I was in Iraq. I chose to study MPharm at University of Strathcyde/Glasgow because I believe I need this course to get an outstanding pharmacy professionals expert in medicines, safe and effective practitioners, and to be able to maintain and improve my professional performance. The main target for me at the end of the degree course is to be a registered pharmacist in the UK and equip with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours needed for careers in all branches of pharmacy, and in all aspects of the profession required in this country.”
What does the funding mean to you? The Trust’s funding means a new life with a big hope to get a better future for me and my family. Because of this opportunity, I am learning pharmacy in entirely different way and I feel more confident than before. I am really enjoying the course and managed to pass my year two and three with merit and now I am in my year four and will hopefully graduate next year.
“I really appreciate your efforts to provide this scholarship for the asylum seekers who are looking for change their life.”
