Why did you choose to study this course?

I chose my course because it sounded incredibly interesting. I felt I could get something out of the course. I felt that the skills I would have after 4 years would help me make a real difference in my further study and in helping me improve technology for healthcare. Also job-wise this is a brilliant course.

Are you happy with your choice of course?



My course has a lot of technical modules (e.g. Programming, Database Systems, Systems Analysis) as well as essay modules (e.g. Management in the Healthcare sector, Project Management, Ethics). I feel I do better in technical modules and so this course had just that. I also get on very well with my course mates which is great. There are very few of us, which means we can get extra help and advise when needed.
