What their Students Say
“I’ve enjoyed studying biosciences since high school and really like how diverse the modules on my degree are. You cover lots of topics, so you get a taste of everything and soon learn which areas you prefer. I was amazed by the labs and all the equipment that’s available to us. I also like the fact that your grades for the course are made up of coursework and exams. I think coursework reflects how you manage in a work-like situation, so combining the two gives a truer reflection of your ability.”
“The course has has exceeded my expectations. I arrived a little late (I attended my first lecture in the airport in Botswana!) but the pathway leader was very supportive and helped me to settle in.
I’ve enjoyed learning about the regulation of healthcare, which felt very apt during a pandemic. I also enjoyed the module on reproductive justice where we studied historic issues alongside IVF, surrogacy, and the ethics around designer babies, discussing how these will impact our futures.
It was both personally and professionally motivating.”
