Hear from our students

Sijin Li, PhD Pharmacy, Materials and Advanced Technologies for Healthcare

"My name is Sijin Li, a PhD Student in The School of Pharmacy at Queen’s University Belfast. My supervisor is Professor Colin McCoy and my study is on the use of selfcleaning materials using changes in chemical environment to trigger drug release. I completed my undergraduate degree at the China Queen’s College in BSc Pharmaceutical Science. I choose to study my postgraduate at Queen’s University Belfast as I had a wonderful time in my four years at CQC and really appreciated the help of the teaching staff. Queen’s cares about their students not only in their study but also in their normal life and we were taken very good care of in our undergraduate degree. I attended a summer program run by Queen’s University Belfast last summer and it offered me a great opportunity to get involved in the city of Belfast and the academic atmosphere in Queen’s. Belfast is a liveable city and life here is really enjoyable. "
