Coming to the UK as a student has opened up a whole new world, full of unique opportunities, memorable moments and life-changing experiences for me. The great thing about this University is its wide range of different cultures. The facilities available were excellent. Fantastic libraries, great laboratories and excellent facilities provided on- and off-campus!
The course provides a vast range of subjects from drug design and green biotechnology to skills in entrepreneurship giving us an edge over other life science graduates. Moreover, the staff were extremely friendly and approachable which was very important and useful for me as an international student and no matter what stage of study I was at, I always found someone on hand to provide me with help, guidance and advice.
Come with an open mind and enjoy every bit of the course as each lesson comes with something new to learn and you will be amazed at the endless exciting prospects the course has in store for you.
