Akuila Maliqi

"Despite growing up near Sheffield, studying at the University of Sheffield offered plenty of exciting and new experiences. I had completed an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at the UoS and following a scholarship offer from the Biomedical Sciences department, I was thrilled to be able to study a Masters at such a highly-ranked

"The Masters course was well-organised, academically stimulating and immensely enjoyable. During the course, you have opportunities to be taught by and work with such inspiring researchers who are involved in an array of different scientific studies. The theoretical and practical-based modules are well-balanced for furthering your scientific knowledge and skills. Additionally, the support available and professionalism of the tutors was also insurmountable.

"I currently work as a tax specialist for HMRC which is quite a change in career path. However, the enhanced analytical, research and trouble-shooting skills attributed to the MSc course are easily transferable to any chosen career."
