Chester is a wonderful place to study and I love the calmness of the city. It really does feel like a second home.

I was born in Niamey, the capital city of Niger and this is where I lived before moving to Alexandria, Egypt to study medicine at Bachelor’s level. Prior to moving to Chester in November 2020, I had completed all my studies in French so I was excited, if a little nervous about studying in English for the first time.

I came to Chester as a Chevening scholar and I was very proud to be selected for this renowned and prestigious scholarship. I was actually part of the first-ever group of students from Niger who were awarded this scholarship and given the chance to study in the UK and embrace British culture.

I chose University of Chester because the MSc Diabetes programme offers everything I need to advance in my future career. The academics, modules and teaching style all contribute to an engaging and informative programme which will benefit me when I return to Niger. The programme prompts myself and fellow students to think critically and in-depth. I also chose Chester because of the location. Chester is such a wonderful place to study and I love the calmness of the city. It really does feel like a second home. I settled in quickly and embraced the diverse nature of the University.

Outside of lectures, I have really enjoyed taking part in the University’s Venture Programme, a series of events which have enabled me to develop a number of important career and entrepreneurial skills.

I love jogging around the city and visiting the array of shops. I am also a huge football fan and would love to visit the ground of my favourite team, Chelsea during my time in the UK!
