Chevening Scholarship Programme – Sayed Ziwary


My name is Sayed Ziwary, I’m from Afghanistan.
Chevening Scholar from 2015, and I did my Masters in Public Health and Health Promotion
here in Bangor University. The course it self, I found it quite specific to what I wanted, and secondly because when I did my research, I found that it’s suppose to be a student town in a quiet
place with beautiful scenery and all. I’m going to be honest I wasn’t disappointed at
all, I found it the same as I did. So yeah that’s the reason that I choose Bangor University. Well it’s quite a small place Bangor it self, so
it helps you focusing on your work, your degree and courses. At the beginning I thought it
might be boring, but not really because after a while I got to know everyone, once you walk on the roads you see
at least a couple of people that you know. Everyone has a familiar face by the end of the year. Well in Bangor University first of all, I
found that a good motivation for Research over all because when I met my Supervisor,
all the Research Projects that’s going on in here, everyone all the students and how motivated they are with their work and how fascinated they are with the work that they’re doing here. So yeah I think overall it was nice because I hadn’t planned to go for a PhD, because I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to go further than my
masters. But as I said, the research work that I did for my MSc was very helpful and motivational. The course was nice, the Professor and Academic
level I was expecting, all my expectations were met I believe. The Research work which
I did for my Masters, I found that helpful. I’m going for PhD after now so research for
Masters was really nice, and overall I would say it was nice. The outdoor activities overall, the walking,
because when ever I go to Normal Site, the view that I see, and the Pier I’m going to
miss the most, I’m going to miss everything. The warmth from Welsh people, I found them
warm and welcoming overall.
