Nadine El Nahhas, our Fencing champion and Dentistry student has a remarkable story to tell.
“Who said that packed lunches and car naps are not a lifestyle? Well in my case, it is! From never-ending hours of training, to all the catching up with my studies, it definitely was a challenge trying to find that balance between my academic and athletic life. It keeps that adrenaline flow all the time! I guess we all know the stereotype of dentist students, where life is as all about academics, and only academics. However, here at NGU we always seek to break the norm. I will never find that level of support and motivation, to keep me going anywhere else. Here at NGU, we do not graduate as dentists, but as full rounded humans, knowing how to get the best of it all”.
Nadine El Nahhas, Fencing champion: Third place nationwide in 2011, third place juniors World Cup in 2012, second place Arab championship in 2014 and second place nationwide in 2016-2017.
As a direct result of the unique connection between the school of pharmacy students at UCL and NGU, yesterday the School of Pharmacy at NGU held “Fight the Fakes” campaign on campus. The aim was to raise awareness against falsified medications that have little or no active ingredients. “Fight The Fakes” is a global cause initiated by UCL.

Last week, our students at the School of Medicine excelled at their formative assessment. Formative assessments allow students to make adjustments to what and how they are learning. Feedback can also be used to make immediate and significant adjustments to what and how teachers deliver their learning.
Our students had their take on clinical, and hospital pharmacy as they headed to Baheya Hospital, putting theory into practice! The NGU vision aligns with the UCL curriculum in aiming to give our future pharmacists real-world experiences for their future careers. From IV admixture, chemotherapy to physiotherapy and Radiology, this placement visit was all about engagement and creativity.
The diverse roles of the pharmacist as a medication expert and as a researcher are of intertwined importance; no wonder they are embedded together in our modules. In order to learn and practice the essential lab skills, a hands-on approach to apply scientific concepts is adopted at the School of Pharmacy.
This session is a clear example of NGU’s pursue to provide the students with a chance to apply their theoretical knowledge and work effectively in the lab. The students applied the rules of analytical chemistry to draw a calibration curve between known concentrations and the absorbance using colorimetric methods, then apply their knowledge to perform a glucose tolerance test.
