Tram Bui BMedSci in Health and Human Sciences
When did you graduate?
Why did you choose the University of Sheffield?
I’m originally from Manchester and chose The University Of Sheffield because of the great reputation it holds and because of its number 1 student union! Whenever I missed home, it was easy to go back! Sheffield was the ideal location with a number of great cities around it.
What do you think of Sheffield?
Sheffield is a fantastic city – loads of things to do and see as well as some amazing places to eat! A true home away from home.
What advice would you give to prospective Health and Human Sciences students?
Make the most of the resources available to you. Your lecturers are a fantastic resource and are always willing to help, you just have to ask. I also recommend keeping up with the news as there is always something happening in healthcare from research to politics.
What was the most enjoyable and rewarding part of the course?
For me, the most enjoyable part was actually my dissertation. It gave me the freedom to focus on a topic that I was really passionate about and that reflected extremely well in my dissertation grade!
What are you doing now?
I am currently a Programme Management Officer working in the Emergency Care PMO. This means that I provide support to projects from planning to the implementation right through to closing a project. There are always a number of projects running simultaneously and the work I do ranges from admin to data analysis.
Do you think your degree helped (is helping you) further your career?
The degree has helped hugely in understanding the NHS and factors which affect it and has given me a strong foundation to build on. I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do but my placement helped me make my mind up. The best thing is that the degree leaves you with a number of different career options - from nursing to service management.
