Why did you choose to study this course?

I liked biology and physics and wanted to work in a hospital but I wasn’t sure medicine was for me.

Are you happy with your choice of course?

Yes

On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

I love the biology and practical parts. I love the placement we do and the patients we deal with.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week?

11-15hrs

Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?

On

Is your course weighted more on continuous assessment or end of year exams?

Continuous assessment

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?

Yes

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

The practical labs are great as they prepare you for the real hospital setting and allow you to ask any questions in a real world setting.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

Some of our modules feel irrelevant and it can be hard to study when you don't feel it's applicable to your course.

Was your course what you expected?
