I chose to study in UCL because it offered a very diverse culture with students from most countries in the world. It has a great learning environment right in the centre of London, in addition to its recognised high standards. Living in London, I have had the opportunity to experience some of the best things the UK has to offer. I like the musical theatres, cinemas and other fun places. It has definitely broadened my scope of human interaction with people of different backgrounds.

For my programme, we have labs in the Cruciform Building. They are well equipped and greatly aid understanding the courses with practicals. Also, there are many libraries accessible to students and all with sufficient resources. Online journals are very useful especially for my course that involves a lot of current research. I enjoyed my Anatomy module very much. It was very interesting and interactive coupled with the well equipped dissection room available for practicals.

Having acquired a sound foundation in the mechanisms of the body, I want to pursue a career in Medicine.
