"I opted to do my PhD at the University of Nottingham because it offered a unique course in epidemiology and public health that really matched my career interests. The Division of Epidemiology and Public Health within the School of Medicine has incredibly resourceful academics and researchers with a wealth of knowledge.
Being part of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS) within the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health, I could see my research within the context of other tobacco research being carried out within the centre and it is an inspirational forum for sharing ideas and collaborating on projects. It widened my experience on tobacco research and gave me opportunities to present my research at national and international conferences.
All through my years here as a PhD student I have been well supported by staff, fellow students and most importantly by my supervisors. My supervisors have been incredible and support me all times to make my study time very fruitful and enjoyable."
