The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship is invaluable to me. The scholarship has enabled me to learn a lot about the British and other foreign cultures. I have been able to network; which is invaluable! Most importantly, it has given me the opportunity to study my dream course, Gerontology at Southampton. The University of Southampton is one of the top 5 institutions for ageing studies in the UK.
