    All the courses are the same in content (part of the government's Modernising Scientific Careers programme: https://www.gov.uk/government/upload.../dh_123911.pdf)

    There is a lot of detail on the individual modules at Southampton here: http://www.southampton.ac.uk/enginee...y.page#modules

    But basically, this first year is a general introduction and covers general anatomy and physiology as well as theory and practice in audiology, clinical neurophysiology and vision science. There's also a general background in physics for the acoustics involved and a very interesting module on how perception of sensation is different from the signals themselves (psychophysics).

    I enjoy the hands-on things best, so have really enjoyed the weekly practicals and being on 2 weeks placement earlier this month, where I got to observe and also to assist with various procedures and to interact with patients. My least favourite (at the time) was the anatomy and physiology in the first semester, but only because we were learning so much information in what seemed a very short time and I didn't always see the relevance of it; BUT as I am reading more background material, it is becoming very apparent that it was very important to know all the medical terms I learnt, and it is helping me to understand what I am reading better.

    Hi, how are you finding it at Southampton? I would really like to go to Southampton. Are they lenient with grades on results day and has anyone got in through clearing?

    The uni arranges all the placements You get a list of possible places and you can express a preference for location, but really you have to be prepared to go anywhere on the list unless you have special circumstances. They are mostly commutable from Southampton, unless you want to be based somewhere else, e.g. London, for personal reasons.

    I'm really enjoying Southampton and would recommend it. I'm a mature student and wasn't reliant on grades on results day, so I can't comment on that. (Not sure if anyone got thru on clearing or not.)
