The MSc in Genetic Counselling allowed me to combine my scientific interests in genetics and medicine with professional training in counselling skills. The course is vital preparation for a career in genetic counselling. Cardiff is a lively, friendly and diverse student city, and the University provides superb resources to support postgraduates both academically and socially, not least the excellent Graduate Centre.

"The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) offered me a PhD scholarship to study at Cardiff University. Having a PhD is a requirement in my academic field, and I am interested in learning more about my subject. I want to re-join my department in Sri Lanka and get involved with academic and clinical work, and to set up a paediatric clinical pharmacology unit based on what I learned here. Studying in Cardiff will give me all the possible opportunities to reach my goal to become an independent and self-directed academic. I feel like a 'knowledge bridge' between the university here and the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka."
