NILE and the University of Chichester are proud to announce a full scholarship on the NILE MA in Professional Development for Language Education (MAPDLE), validated by the University of Chichester, is awarded in 2022 to Mona Hassanein.
As in previous years, a very high standard of applications for the scholarship was received. What impressed the award committee about Mona’s application was her passion and her clear commitment to training teachers in Egypt. In her current role Mona works with British Council teachers, as well as pre-primary, primary and secondary school teachers working in public and private education sectors.
On receiving news of her successful application, Mona wrote that ‘it would be a great honor to follow in the footsteps of Erica Dirou’. Mona also sees the NILE MA as a ‘great opportunity which would not only help me enhance my knowledge and skills, but also enable me to better support teachers and peers in my context’.
