Dentistry - PGT Shoukat Ashiti‌"During my clinical MSc, I have been inspired by many skilful clinicians who have guided me through my training and development as a clinician. The academic support, even across faculties, has been so outstanding that it has motivated me to pursue an academic career."

Dentistry - PGT Salma Abdulhadi"I particularly enjoyed being part of a team. I was the postgraduate representative two years in a row, which allowed me to experience more than just the usual clinical environment. I attended meetings, organised events and was an active team member."
