Postgraduate Study

My MPhil experience was fantastic. Written assessments and presentation feedback at FAMES greatly helped me to visualise my project. Each coursemate had their unique personality and skills, and this made for brilliant classroom discussions, and even more brilliant friendships. The Woolf Institute is a great place to meet like-minded academics, most of whom are post-doctoral scholars. This makes Woolf a fantastic place to develop as an academic. I was very fortunate to benefit from both FAMES and Woolf during my studies.

The MPhil was an enriching, challenging and eye-opening experience that allowed me to connect with students from around the world on a diverse range of subjects related to Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. I was able to develop and refine my writing and presentation skills while constructively debating with and learning from those around me. In addition, the support of the faculty made a very positive contribution to my overall Cambridge experience.
