Chioma Ebere Shelley Anyiam

Abuja, Nigeria

MSc Public Health


Chioma Ebere Shelley Anyiam was working as a pharmacist in her home country of Nigeria, but wanted to do more to impact her community through health education. She chose to study MSc Public Health at the University of Sunderland because of the affordable tuition fees, high-quality teaching and the cultural diversity of the student community. Her future career plans include progressing to a PhD and exploring a career in academia and healthcare consulting.

I came to university for self-development and career progression through further studies. I was previously practicing as a pharmacist in my home country but felt the need to do more by positively impacting my community through health education. I embarked on the MSc Public Health course as I knew it would equip me with the necessary knowledge and skills required to improve the health and overall quality of life of the population. I chose to study at the University of Sunderland because of its comparatively affordable tuition fees, high-quality teaching and excellent educational facilities which represent good value for money. The University also has good cultural diversity as a result of its large international community.

The most interesting aspect of the course is the diversity of the professional backgrounds of the students enrolled on the course. This makes for a varied perspective during classes which I find fascinating. In addition, the lecturers are ever willing to be of help when called upon.

I would definitely recommend the University of Sunderland to prospective students. I would advise that they come prepared with a mindset to work hard in order to achieve their set goals and also keep in mind the level of independence expected from postgraduate students.

Once I complete the course I plan to progress to a PhD and eventually explore a career in academia and healthcare consulting.

Simply put, my experience at the University of Sunderland has been rewarding and a worthwhile journey.”
