Learning

Outline

Could you be the reason someone’s heart keeps beating? What an incentive to study medical sciences with us! By learning key concepts and considering recent breakthroughs in areas such as genetics or emergency medicine, the potential is real.

Build solid industry knowledge, develop the teamwork essential to succeeding in this field and learn how to draft, develop and pitch your ideas to experts. Our Medical Sciences course mixes theory with interactive project work for an engaging, enriching experience.

Whether it’s visiting institutes like the Wellcome Trust or presenting to industry experts, you’ll leave with the skills and aptitude to succeed in a range of careers from epidemiology to clinal medicine and beyond.

Teaching methodology

On our project-based courses, you will work on a group project which is defined by your tutor and based on a complex real-life problem. Each course will have a theme which connects all subjects, to encourage collaboration between groups and peer feedback. In taught sessions, your tutor will equip you with the practical subject knowledge required to address the problem you have been assigned, and you will take ownership of your project during group work facilitated by teaching assistants. To learn from industry experts, you will also visit companies, innovators, and experts to immerse you in the current issues defining your subject area and the overall course theme. Your course will culminate in group presentation to peers, staff and external experts.

The Experience

Discover the best of British culture and beyond to find out what makes Great Britain so great by visiting all of its wonderful landmarks on foot, by bike or via the tube. Hop on to London's infamous tube system, and explore trendy Shoreditch (with its delicious eateries and boutique shops), visit Camden market for some vintage finds, or stroll along the Thames and watch the sunset behind the London Eye. Wherever you choose, you're sure to be captivated by the city’s atmospheric charm.

Our programme of social events and excursions are designed to really integrate you into London life and introduce you to the most significant sites in Britain. But don't worry, you'll have free time to explore the sites that appeal to you as well, or just find a cosy cafe to enjoy a coffee with new friends.
