The University celebrates the scholarship success of two MSc Computer Science students at the annual Reception for University Scholars
On Monday 8th June, Tanzanian student Andrew Charles Kajeguka and Iranian student Mahbood Goharian, were invited to celebrate their achievement in securing two prestigious academic scholarships at the annual Reception for University Scholars.
Held in the impressive grounds of the historic Barber Institute, their achievements were celebrated by a host of esteemed university colleagues, with personal congratulations given by the University’s Vice-Principal, Professor Michael Sheppard.
Given the rarity of such prestigious awards, the School of Computer Science were extremely privileged to have two of their international masters students celebrated at this year’s event.
Commenting on this achievement, the School’s International Recruitment and Marketing Officer, Sally Ingram, said “This is an amazing achievement for Andrew and Mahbood, and it is fantastic that the University is celebrating their success in this way. Andrew has been awarded a full scholarship from the Ford Foundation’s International Fellowships Programme and Mahbood has been awarded a University of Birmingham International Masters Student Scholarship. Given the selection criteria for these awards, both students should be extremely proud. In Andrew’s case, he has been identified as an ‘exceptional individual’ who will use his education to become a leader in his respective field, and similarly, Mahbood has been selected from hundreds of applicants to receive one of only twenty international masters scholarships available annually. This is a true testament to the level of their academic ability and goes to show the quality of students choosing to study with us. They wholly deserve our congratulations.”
