Why did you pick BSc Health and Medical Sciences?

I always knew I saw a future career in something biology related. When I came across HMS it instantly stood out for me. I had never come across a course like it, the cross between the health and medical sciences was such a fascinating aspect and reflected my interests of biology, psychology and ethics all in one .

Why did you chose to study at Warwick?

From attending an open day at Warwick, I knew this was the right place for me. The campus was filled with positive vibes and energy. It was one of the top 10 universities in the UK and I had yet to see another university offer a course like HMS. With all these factors added together, there was really no other choice for me but to choose Warwick!

How have you found the course so far?

I am thoroughly enjoying my course and time at Warwick. As it is a smaller cohort, it is a much more supportive atmosphere from not only my peers but also lecturers. It has provided me with so much insight into the world of health care and I've been able to explore various different pathways for my future.

How have you found the change from sixth form to university?

Initially it was a huge jump. However, the support from the HMS team and the university as a whole has made the transition a lot easier. Although university does take you out of your comfort zone, it is so exciting to experience a whole new world and have independence, which has helped prepare me for the life after graduation.

What have you enjoyed most about the course so far?

I have enjoyed the clinical skills module run by WMS in year 2. It was an amazing experience and the perfect opportunity for those who may be considering post-graduate medicine.

Have you been involved in any extra curricular activities/societies?

I have partaken in some biology society socials as well as engineering society socials. They are filled with so much fun and allow you take part in activities you might not have the opportunity to do yourself.

Do you have an idea of what you would like to do when you graduate?

I am still in the process of contemplating a few different ideas of what I may do once I graduate. There are definitely a lot of options and routes to go down from doing a course as broad as HMS.

Do you have any advice for people applying for the course?

My advice would be to enjoy the course and get stuck in! Although it can seem overwhelming at times, the three years will fly by. So ensure you live every minute of it and take advantage of all the opportunities provided to you.

Finally, what three words would you use to describe your experience of studying at WMS?

Supportive, exciting and refreshing!
