Developing Solutions Scholars at Nottingham
Here is what one of our 2015 Developing Solutions Masters Scholarship winners says about their scholarship:
"The scholarship has greatly assisted my study because without this scholarship, I probably would not be able to pay the tuition fees. The scholarship granted me an opportunity to study in a developed country, get exposed to recent research level and an opportunity to acquire relevant knowledge in my field... Studying at the University of Nottingham has been really interesting, exposing and challenging. I am also happy because the University environment has a blend of students from diverse cultural backgrounds..."
