    Hey!

    So social life = everything is close, there are plenty of bars, restaurants, there is a cinema near by, bowling, media museum etc!
    And also Leeds is only a 20-30 min train ride away!

    Teaching is done in a team based learning style. So most universities sit in a lecture for hours on end, here we sit in teams (same team throughout the year) and discuss case studies including diagnosis, management, treatment options, lifestyle advice ect.

    It is easy to adapt because you are not alone, you have at least 4/5 other team members to talk through it with, makes it easier to make friends and build connections within the course.

    Anything else? Hope that's okay, want to know more just let me know xx

    Hello!
    I'm not too sure how long you will have to wait but I know the university have an account on here and they will be able to answer that question best for you.

    Living costs in Bradford are fairly cheap! So shopping wise there is Aldi, Tesco, Farmfoods, Asda, Quality save and similar shops like that.
    The Local Bars/restaurants/Takeways are all very cheap! Always student deals and there is also the students Union which has super cheap drinks deals.
    Sport at the university has a a large variety of options. If you want to know anymore about this let me know.

    Accommodation wise: Most first years tend to live in The Green. This is an on campus student accommodation with excellent facilities and security. It would be great for first year socialising as nearly everyone who lives there are freshers. There tends to be lots of house parties and it is very easy to mix with people in other flats/houses.
    Other options include Arkwright Halls, Foster Halls and Kexgill. These are all companies that are local to the uni, i would say all within a 5 minute walk from main buildings on campus. I am currently Living in Kexgil and have been for the past 2 years but I lived in the green first year and loved every minute of it!.

    I hope this helps? If there is anything else I can help you with, just ask

    Thanks and good luck with your application.

    Hi!

    If a student transfers from Biomedical Science to Pharmacy they would be looking at Year 1 entry for the Pharmacy course
