(Student Profile)

Anna Malene Grip

954.jpg "I wanted to learn more in the field of facial prosthetics and this was a great opportunity for me to get an international education and at the same time stay living in Norway.

The lecturers at King`s have a great deal of experience both practically and theoretically. This is very important for me as I can learn about a variety of patient cases. The fact that King`s College has a solid reputation enforces the quality of the programme. I also like that the course offers updated computer technology education.

"When I finish this program I will continue working for a better cooperation with the craniofacial team, especially concerning treatment planning. I already feel more confident in treating patients and I look forward to learning more.

Studying at a distance allows me to remain studying and working in Norway. This enables me to continue to work in Oslo and to live with my family. As I have children in Norway it would be very difficult for me move to London. I can choose when to study and I can work at home and also to continue to work at the hospital.

I think the face-to-face part of the course in London was very rewarding because I got to know the other students and we had a lot of hands on training.

I recommend this programme to colleagues because you get an updated education making me more confident in treating patients. This is a way to get a formal education in an area where we come from many different backgrounds."
