Why did you choose to study at the University of Chester?

I’m a registered doctor in Bangladesh. Soon after completion of my bachelor’s degree in Medicine (MBBS), I decided to pursue a postgraduate qualification in Cardiology from the United Kingdom. Pursing a medical degree from a university in the United Kingdom is nothing less than a dream for physicians all over the world, and I was no different. Whilst scrutinizing research into the endless territories of the universities in the United Kingdom, I came across the postgraduate course of “MSc Cardiovascular Disease” at the University of Chester, which satisfied the criteria for my academic career.

How has the ‘Chester Experience’ been for you?

From day one of my university life in the United Kingdom, my experience was far beyond my expectations. The University of Chester is a state-of-the-art modern university with technologically advanced libraries and very well-equipped laboratories on all campuses. The university campuses, with their peaceful environment and scenic nature, enhance the learning experience to a maximum level throughout the course.

Unlike other cities of the United Kingdom, it is Chester’s small size which makes it so unique. It’s a small walled city where a walk to the university is a pleasure. The city is heavily enriched with a mixture of British and Roman culture and heritage. The River Dee, Grosvenor Park and Chester Cathedral are a few mentionable highlights amongst the many wonders of this enchanting city.

Studying a MSc in Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Chester has revolutionized my academic experience in the field of medicine. Despite being a highly research-oriented degree, a vast proportion of the course is based on a taught programme mapped to the course content of The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians. The course has enriched my research skills in the field of medicine to an advanced level. The “Taught” aspect of the course has enhanced my knowledge in the field of Cardiology through intensive lectures delivered by Professors and Consultants from the Countess of Chester hospital, as well as visiting Consultant Cardiologists and Cardiothoracic Surgeons from all over the United Kingdom and other countries as well. My academic progress was well monitored throughout the course, and every lecture and assessment was backed up by support sessions, effective feedback and enriched study resources in the University Portal, making the learning experience utterly blissful.

What are your plans for the future?

At the end of the course, I have plans to return to my home country and pursue a professional life as a cardiology specialist. However, I do have a dream to obtain a PhD in Cardiovascular Disease from a renowned university in the United Kingdom in the near future. As far as I know myself, I’m yet to discover how far I can go in pursuit of my dreams.
