Student story: Ratibah Sawabi

The strong emphasis on learning in practice was the deciding factor that led our French-Egyptian second-year student Ratibah Sawabi to the University of Eastern Finland and the Master’s Degree programme in Medical Physics. During the studies she has been fortunate to be able to complete three different internship periods at the Kuopio University Hospital – all of which have been memorable experiences that, according to Ratibah, help “train visual memory” after acquiring a strong theoretical background. And her focus on visual learning doesn’t come as a surprise when you learn that she is also a visual storyteller, working as a storyboard artist. Intriguing!

I learned that the UEF programme includes a lot of learning in practice, either in labs or in the university hospital.
