Student stories

Meet our students

“My first lecture as a health student was really moving and poignant. A man came in to talk about his experience of watching a loved one suffer with dementia and the support he got from the nurses. It really resonated with me and reaffirmed my choice to become a doctor. If I could make a difference to just one person like that, it would be an honour.”

” As the Medicine degree is new, my cohort is quite small so we’ve all got to know each other and become friends straight away. The tutors are all fantastic; I love how passionate they are in each of their subjects and they clearly want us – and the course – to be successful. They take as much pride in our achievements as we do.”

“The course focuses on practical experience almost from day one and you get to go out on placement within four months of starting. Everyone gets the opportunity to work in a range of settings including hospitals, dementia clinics and a mental health settings, so you get an idea of where you might like to specialise.”
