Mootaz Mowfak Salman from Iraq
Pre-sessional English, MSc Pharmacology and Biotechnology and PhD
'The multicultural international environment at the University combined with its history and hospitality has made the entire experience a pleasure.
'My masters provided a high volume of practical sessions with access to high tech facilities and equipment which some universities don't even let PhD students use. This has helped me build my self-confidence and has enhanced my experience and CV.
'I have presented at a number of international conferences in the UK, USA, Canada and Romania which was encouraged and support by my supervisor. I have also made a significant contribution to a research paper published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry in 2015.
'My sponsor said I could study my PhD at any university in the world. I came back to Sheffield Hallam as I was familiar with my supervisor and environment and I am pleased with my decision as it has helped me achieve my goals.'
