Hear from past Medical Sciences students
Adriana Salame, Nutrition and Medical Sciences BSc graduate
"Every aspect of the course exceeded my expectations; Our professors and guest specialists always brought about engaging content-rich lectures, extensively covering body systems in health and disease in first year, then the role of nutrition in modulating health across life.
We always enjoyed the practical activities that complemented our learning, and were assessed on real-life cases, both of which have developed our professional skills."
Walton Chan, Division of Infection and Immunity graduate
"This programme taught me how to be a confident scientific communicator. Your peers motivate you to work harder as everyone operates at such a high level. Your project supervisor helps you with professional development and the Department holds internal seminars to keep you at the cutting edge of infection and immunology science.
As I start work as a research assistant with a PhD offer at the University of Hong Kong, I can't help but feel grateful for this programme."
Dara Vakili, Applied Medical Sciences BSc graduate
“The AMS course trains students to speak the language of medicine but think like scientists. The exposure to some of the best science in the world allows students to become extremely versatile.
The best thing about UCL is that you are surrounded by some extremely clever people in all different fields. The environment is diverse in its thinking but people are also very down to earth and fun."
Nabeela Arbee, Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health MSc graduate
“When I saw the Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health program at UCL I jumped at the opportunity because it bridges both things that I love, sports and medicine. Being at UCL has opened so many doors for me to pursue exciting research and expand on my knowledge.”Watch Nabeela's 'A Day in the Life on Youtube.
