Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry, Oxford University, UK
The short one and a half year here in TARC gave me more than I have expected.I thank my highly experienced and friendly lecturers for teaching and guiding me in my course. I was taught comprehensively of the syllabus and more, such as the real life application of theories. The lecturers cared much for us and did what they can for us to attain the results that we want, answering any doubts and questions that we may have while advising us to work hard. Furthermore, with a conducive environment for inquiring and learning, and a well-equipped library, I had the tools and motivation to further understand concepts and of course, to satisfy my interest and curiosity through self-study. I was also given the opportunity and encouragement to express my talents, leading to the creation of the debate club in the college. I am grateful to have studied in TARC, grateful for the people I met. In addition, accepting an offer from Oxford University shows that the quality of the wholesome education here is a stepping stone to the top universities in the world; to places that you have dared to dream of.
