After A Levels at Notre Dame, Nyein studied for a degree in Physics at UCL. He went on to do his Masters there and completed his PhD in June 2012. Dr Chan has recently accepted a Professorship with an Australian University. Nyein feels that Notre Dame helped with his success: “I had my viva yesterday and I passed my PhD so I’m very pleased and happy. This owes to the solid foundation built at Notre Dame and the dedication of my old teachers. Without Notre Dame, I wouldn’t be here today, so I believe this is a good time for me to once again say thanks for everything you have done during my time in Leeds.”
