Student Profile(s)

Elena Polycarpou

"Having completed my BSc degree at Kingston University, I was eager to further my studies with the Cancer Biology MSc. This taught course was ideal for me since it provided a great insight into the biological world of cancer and expanded my knowledge in disease progression and patient survival.

"Throughout my time here I have become part of the Kingston University family and the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing staff have helped me with their guidance and feedback. I really enjoyed modules like Molecular Oncology and Cancer Diagnosis & Therapy which focused on the molecular aspects of cancer.

"A very important aspect of the course was the 10-week research project. This focused on basic cell culture techniques and has equipped me with the skills and confidence needed in the professional world as well as giving me the opportunity to pursue a PhD at Kingston. I would strongly recommend Kingston University."
