Dr Hamza Celik, Ph.D


After I received my Master of Research degree from the University of York, I was fortunate to be granted a prestigious European fellowship (Marie Curie Initial Training Network) to begin my Ph.D. studies in the French Centre for Scientific Research in Marseille, France. Currently, I am a post-doctoral fellow at the Washington University in St. Louis working on hematology and oncology. My research focus includes identification of novel genetic mutations in hematopoietic stem cells (which give rise to all the other blood cells through the process of hematopoiesis) that drives leukemic transformation. I have published number of research articles in top scientific journals. Most recently, I was selected to receive an American Society of Hematology (ASH) Scholar award to continue my research. ASH scholar award is one of the most prestigious awards in the field of hematology, financially supporting fellows and junior faculty dedicated to careers in hematology research as they transition from training programs to careers as independent investigators.

When I enrolled at Bosworth Independent College, I barely spoke English or knew what future held for me, but through day-to-day guidance and supervision of my teachers, I decided to pursue a career in Molecular Biology and Genetics. Today, I hold a respected position at a top academic institution and love every minute of what I do! I believe without the tireless support of my teachers at Bosworth who helped me unlock my potential, I would not be where I am today. I still miss the time I spent in Northampton!

Title: Post-doctoral Research Fellow (in hematology and oncology)
Current workplace: Washington University in St Louis, USA.

“Bosworth has a vivid environment and superb quality of teaching. All of my teachers are extremely helpful and patient. Especially my own tutor, she helped me a lot in terms of study and life. Also, Bosworth has a professional team working on UCAS application. They are making efforts to help every student achieve his/her dream. Luckily, I am one of them and I am enjoying my favourite subjects in LSE now.”

“Bosworth is an exceptionally friendly environment with very helpful teachers, I always felt I could get the teacher’s full attention with any questions I had. My ambition is to work in the field of medicine and I am excited to have achieved a scholarship to study at Oxford. However, I will miss the many friends I made and the excellent teachers.”

Munir Jamal E Abukhder


“As an international student, I was concerned that it would be difficult to adapt to an English schooling system and obtain a place at a Russell Group Medical school. This apprehension was put at rest by the support provided by Bosworth College. Not only did they heavily support my UCAS application, but I received essential help with regards to the intensive interview process as well as an individually crafted strategy to help me get into the University of Birmingham. Without the aid of Bosworth College, I wouldn’t have been able to pursue my aspiration of becoming a doctor.”
