SadamSadam

Sadam studied the Foundation at Kings before starting a degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Bristol.

"Since I was a young I was interested in Biology and Chemistry. I’m also interested in cancer biology and regenerative medicine, and this course in Bristol provides me with the chance to study and learn these things. Bristol is one of the few universities which has this course.

Kings, and especially the teachers, further increased my interest in Science, and really helped me in studying English as it’s not my first language”

"At university no one will remind you what to study and when to study, you have to be independent. But thanks to Kings, I was prepared for that."
