I really enjoyed the medical statistics modue - it's something I'd really like to pursue after I've finished the masters. We all have our own desks in the Msc room - its our little home! Wen we have a lot of work to do we can spend all day in here, the atmosphere i good and we can help each other out if anyone gets stuck.
