NILE and the University of Chichester are proud to announce that the 2023 full scholarship on the NILE MA in Professional Development for Language Education (MAPDLE), validated by the University of Chichester, is awarded to Hamed Shiref Alasmar.
As in previous years, there was a very high standard of applications for the scholarship. What impressed the award committee about Hamed’s application was how well he communicated his passion for language education, as well as his very strong drive for further professional development. The award committee is confident that the knowledge, skills and experience Hamed will gain from the MA can also have a beneficial impact on the people he works with in Egypt.
On receiving news of his successful application, Hamed promised to ‘make the most of this privilege, striving for excellence in my studies and contributing meaningfully to my field’.
Here is Hamed's full statement:
