Case Study

Kamolrat Cheangdee

MSc Nursing

Kamolrat Cheangdee decided to study on the MSc Nursing course as she was driven by her love of caring for others. She has made friends from around the world, who also work as nurses. After graduation, Kamolrat will return to Thailand where she plans to take the research she has learned at Sunderland to support the training of new nurses.

I love to take care of people; when I can make them smile and relieve their pain or stress, it makes my heart so happy. I decided to further develop my skills at the University of Sunderland due to the outstanding support given to international students, and the consistency of the modules on the MSc Nursing course.  

Before starting the course, I had been working as a nurse in the cardiovascular thoracic surgery intensive care unit for nine years at Thammasat University Hospital in Thailand. I also spent a month in the hospital working in the intensive care unit dealing with COVID-19 patients.  

I have really enjoyed the classes, and although we have been learning online, I feel I get all the content I need. The library is also very good, and it's easy to find the books or articles I need. I have made friends from around the world who are working as nurses just like as me and it’s so exciting. 

When I graduate, I will fly back to Thailand to work in the same hospital, where I plan to take the research I've learned at Sunderland to support the training of new nurses. I will also try to solve the problem of why new nurses sometimes leave their jobs after training. 

I would certainly recommend Sunderland and the nursing course to others, as it’s a great course to study in a lovely city, with fantastic beaches and friendly people.”
