As a geneticist, I have found it fascinating to be studying alongside health care professionals. Hearing about real cases has brought the subject matter to life for me.

The way the course is structured means that both part-time and full-time students all study together and there is a nice balance between practical sessions and lectures.

The department is a really supportive environment. Staff go out of their way to help you and answer your questions, whether they are study related or about life at the University.
