I found the Transform Together Scholarship online after I heard from friends what is was like to study at Sheffield Hallam University. They had told me it was a really good place to study and so I applied. I had also been offered a scholarship in Pakistan but it was the course and the facilities at Sheffield Hallam that really impressed me.
I had already studied for a BSc in Biotechnology in Pakistan at the University of Peshawar and I wanted to expand on what I had learned. I looked at the modules in the Biotechnology course here and it really appealed to what I wanted.
It is a very impressive course. I like how everything is linked so that everything we are taught is focused in a particular direction. It is not just one piece of information here and another there, it combines information to give a strong focus so that you learn everything you need to become a good scientist and researcher.
I want to work really hard at Sheffield Hallam and aim for distinctions in my course. I would then like to stay here to do a PhD.
