"I was awarded the BSMS scholarship to study the Global Pharmacy MSc programme in 2018-2019. Having seen how inaccessible and expensive medications are in my region of East Africa, I developed an interest to understanding and providing solutions to the challenges that pharmacy faces when it comes to the lack of access to medicines.
The opportunity to study this masters has allowed me to enhance my knowledge in how pharmacy can impact global health and find inspiration from the multidisciplinary experts at BSMS, the University of Brighton, University of Sussex, Institute of Development Studies and beyond.
When applying for this scholarship, I demonstrated how my background experience was relevant and how the modules covered in this degree will give me valuable insight that can be applied to my future career in global pharmacy."
