Student Profile: Dr Kolawole Wasiu Wahab
Dr Kolawole Wasiu Wahab is an MSc Clinical Neurology student on a Commonwealth Scholarship.
“I chose UCL because of its track record and I am so happy that the announcement that UCL is now rated 4th in the whole world came a few days after my enrollment. The Institute of Neurology where I am studying is well respected worldwide.
I am currently studying Clinical Neurology at MSc level at the UCL Institute of Neurology. I have chosen this course because of my zeal to advance my knowledge in my chosen career. I am a clinical neurologist and a lecturer at the University of Ilorin, Nigeria. The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery is a unique place that has many well-respected neurologists. It is really a unique experience to be taught by these doyens in their respective areas of sub-specialization. The UCL Institute of Neurology is uniquely located at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square and this has afforded me the opportunity of meeting with world-renowned teachers and practitioners and I am greatly enjoying my learning of new things.
Living in London is a real experience! Waking up early in the morning, catching the red buses, receiving lectures from experts and rubbing shoulders with people of all nationalities is quite an experience that one would not want to forget. I have benefited a lot because of the access to the most up-to-date information in terms of textbooks and journals. The unique experience of learning till you say you want no more is quite fascinating to me!
When I am not studying, I enjoy sight-seeing by moving around the beautiful city of London.
I currently stay at Max Rayne House which is one of the accommodations administered by UCL. Staying in this accommodation has provided me a 24/7 link to the internet and the UCL library. This is quite important to me as I am able to do many works at my own pace. Moreover, the resources available have made it easy for me to get materials on my sub-specialty and also have easy access to references for research.”
