We explore why Mohamed decided to do his PhD (which is around differences in neurodevelopment in children with different diseases). Listen to this episode, to find out more about finding (or even creating) the right PhD for you, applying to a PhD, how it's different from a Masters, and how helpful Google can be. He also talks about his side project of tutoring and his thoughts about his future. 'As long as you find enjoyment in what you're doing, that's your motivation.' If you're a King's student thinking of applying for a PhD, use the careers team to work through these questions for yourself.
