"After completing my Bachelor's Degree of Pharmacy, I decided to pursue higher education with the Master International of Infectiology. I feel so comfortable to benefit from the European Education System hosted in my country, it is good to know new people from different countries in the classroom"
Ms SIM Mala (Cambodia)
M2: Life Sciences and Health
"Cambodia is a green field for research and dozen of mysteries that need to be unraveled. In addition, the impact of infectious diseases on humans remains a challenge and must always be addressed. This International Master of Infectiology program allows me to fulfill that objective and gives me the opportunity to be part of the future generation of Cambodian scientists. What else could you ask for? Don't wait until it's too late!"
