What appealed to you about Northumbria University? I am originally from Newcastle and have friends and family here so I didn’t want to move away. Northumbria provided a high quality establishment nearby that was investing in its own and its students future so I didn’t need to look at moving away.
What was it about the course that particularly appealed? It appeared to be a highly focused course in an area of science dealing with current health issues. The course is focused on working in the clinical environment and so should help with getting a job which was important to me. The fact that it was based towards a health background as opposed to sports was also important.
What qualifications did you have? I have a 2:1 Biology BSc from Sheffield University.
How did you feel during your first week at Northumbria? A bit apprehensive as it had been a while since I had graduated but I quickly relaxed after meeting the other people on the course and the tutors.
What do you like most about the course? The practical aspects of the course is the most interesting as it is learning skills that would be necessary to working in a clinical environment.
How do you get on with your tutors? The tutors are very friendly, engaging and show their passion for the work they are doing.
What would you like to do when you graduate? Ideally I would like to work in a clinical environment working with people to get them healthier and able to lead better lives. However, since starting the course, the idea of working in research has grown on me.
What three words would you use to describe your time at Northumbria? Friendly, interesting, worthwhile.
