Every day is different and unique, and I am constantly surprised and challenged. I might start off by joining a ward round in the morning after a handover. We'll see patients with a consultant. We then might break with a tutorial and dive into one of the cases in depth, and then maybe explore some of the subjects in that. In the future, once I’m working as a doctor, I hope to remain active in the field of sexual health. I hope to maintain my enthusiasm for space and perhaps work towards a career in space medicine.

George Barker, MBBS Medicine.

I wanted to learn more about the translational aspect of immunology research. I took modules on cellular pathology, cancer biology, research skills, immunology, and biological therapies. 

The course directors, administrators, lecturers, and supervisors have been incredibly supportive and approachable. 

At the end of my MSc, I completed a four-month research project in the new Pears Building. I was able to immerse myself in the inner workings of a lab and learn first-hand from world-leading researchers.
