Student Profile(s)

Julien Nyombayire

I am Dr Julien Nyombayire, working as a research physician in HIV epidemiology and prevention research in Kigali, Rwanda.

My choice of the School was mainly driven by its world renowned reputation of high quality education and the diversity of the teaching expertise found in the School’s programs, especially in health research.

Although very demanding, my experience in distance learning has been rewarding because of the interesting lectures provided by experienced professors and tutors, as well as sharing experiences with students of different backgrounds from all over the world.

I have enjoyed the lectures overall as well as the application of theoretical principles learned in classes in daily research activities. I have no doubt the knowledge acquired during my studies will build foundation for my future career in research and will open doors for even more learning opportunities.

Jane Walker

I’m a doctor and I work for the Psychological Medicine Research Group at the University of Oxford. I develop new ways of helping people who have cancer and who also have depression. Studying clinical trials really helped me in my day to day work and also meant that I had a much deeper understanding of the work I was doing, both theoretically and practically.

I had never studied anything by distance learning before so was rather apprehensive about that. But the modules were really well organised and practical. The most exciting thing was that many of the tutors were world experts in clinical trials and epidemiology, so it was fantastic to be able to discuss things either online or in live chats. I would absolutely recommend this course. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
