Testimonials from past scholars

“I was delighted to receive a scholarship to help me fund the MSc Physician Associate Studies course that I had applied to do part-time last year. As a mum of two children, going back to university was always going to be challenging. I was unsure about how I would cope with the intense study timetable, travelling to university, working two days a week and still having time for my family. 

As I approach the end of my first year, I can only say that I am so glad I chose to go back to university. Good time management, my husband’s bicycle and a really supportive family have meant that I have really enjoyed this year. The financial help from St George’s scholarship fund has made it achievable. I can’t wait for next year when I’ll get to see patients in the GP surgery.” 

— Suzie Rawcliffe, Physician Associate Studies MSc


“I am eternally grateful for this opportunity given by St George’s allowing me to carry on developing my professional skills and excelling in my career as a Biomedical Scientist.

It was very humbling, and at the same time highly motivating, to find out that I was awarded a scholarship which covered my tuition fees. The MRes course that has been funded with this scholarship is perfect for the set of skills I need to acquire to build my career and I would like to thank everyone at St George’s for their constant support and mentorship.”

— Narina Bileckaja, Biomedical Science MRes: Infection and Immunity.


"I cannot recall a single lecture of the course at St Georges that was not invaluable, nor a single lecturer who failed to inspire and motivate which is a unique experience in all my academic life. Receiving the scholarship has meant my life can never be the same again: the exposure we receive as students to the most pressing global health concerns of the time is complimented each step of the way with teaching and instruction from the leading experts in the field.” 

— Sehr Zeb, Global Health MSc


"Before starting the Physician Associate Studies MSc, I had been working full-time as a Stem Cell Technician. After work one evening, I saw a poster at the tube station advertising the course and decided to apply. 

Within three months I had been accepted, and by six months I had resigned from my position in preparation for the August start. Due to the spontaneity of my decision to study again, I knew I would need financial help to supplement my savings. All of this combined was exciting yet worrying as my life had to change direction pretty quickly. 

I applied for the scholarship with an account of my academic successes and financial situation, and was delighted to have been selected for an award. To say it has helped immensely is an understatement- I have had the opportunity to pay for other academic necessities and plan ahead for year two. To have St George’s contribute to my postgraduate journey not only affirms my previous achievements but gives me a boost of confidence in my ability to successfully complete my degree."
