“What it’s like to study Bioethics and work too” according to Shayda Kashef, Part-Time MA Student Bioethics & Society at SSHM

Hey everyone!

I’m Shayda, I’m 24 and I’m currently working on my part-time master’s in Bioethics & Society (in case you’re about to Google “bioethics” because you’ve never heard of the term before – don’t panic! We spent one of our first lectures trying to come up with a definition, so you’re not alone. That being said, you probably should Google it anyway, guaranteed you’ll find something interesting).

I graduated from King’s in 2013 with a degree in Philosophy. I always knew I wanted to do a master’s, and although I loved studying philosophy, I felt like I was better suited to something along the lines of applied ethics.


So what do I make of my first year? I can easily say that I’m looking forward to another one – I’m genuinely loving this ride! Although I regret not graduating with my friends who are studying full-time, I’m really happy with my decision of breaking up my degree into two years.
