Opetaia Aati – Year 2 MAPAS MBChB student

I entered the MBChB programme as a graduate student, which means that I have already accumulated a sizeable student loan from my undergraduate studies. The Aniva Scholarship gives me great peace of mind knowing that I won’t be adding to this.

Opetaia is a recipient of the Aniva Scholarship.
