Hanan Al-Buflasa, now Assistant Professor at the University of Bahrain, went from MSc to PhD and even found time to be a tutor for those following in her footsteps.

"I was sponsored by my employer, the University of Bahrain, to come to Loughborough and study on a full-time basis for an MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology.

The University of Bahrain will only send its employees to the best universities around the world, and after carefully researching renewable energy courses both inside and outside the UK, I found the MSc course offered by CREST to be the best. 

I had such a good experience doing my Masters at Loughborough, I stayed on to do a PhD as my employer is keen to establish a research field in this area and promote renewable energy throughout Bahrain. Whilst studying for my PhD I also supported CREST’s Distance Learning course as a tutor which I really enjoyed. Now I’m back in Bahrain I’m using the skills and experience I gained as a student at Loughborough to advise Government and also individuals."
