Mohammad Saad Farooq HAUS Scholarship Winner

I had the pleasure of interacting and forming friendships with talented students from all over the world. This international community is reflected not only the student body of Heidelberg University, but also within the scientific institutions in the city itself. This level of international collaboration has been invaluable towards my professional development. My medical education has already required a significant financial investment, and without support, I would not have been able to to study at Heidelberg University.
