Student Profile

Seamus Cook

Before attending the University of Bristol, I studied Physiological sciences (BSc) at Newcastle University. I graduated and went straight into studying the masters course.

I have an interest in translational research/medicine, with a focus on cardiovascular medicine. From online research, I could not find a course that encompassed my interests more than the course at Bristol. I was also very aware of the internationally renowned reputation of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Bristol and the Bristol Heart Institute.

The University of Bristol has a strong academic background and it is clear that prides itself on producing well informed, high achieving graduates. With that being said, the University has a friendly atmosphere and caters for a plethora of extra-curricular interests.

I have always lived in Bristol and therefore already knew that it was a dynamic city that catered for people of all interests.

I have enjoyed the mixture of an interesting course, excellent teaching, fantastic facilities and being in such a great city.

The most impressive aspect of my programme has been just how much material I have been taught. The material is always so informative and informed by research. The course has also changed my thought process somewhat, stimulating me to problem solve and to challenge information as opposed to merely accepting it, a critical attribute for a clinician.

After completing my studies, I plan to pursue a career in academic medicine, with hopes to conduct translational research as a clinician.
