    I asked how often do they have PBL sessions as it doesn't say on the website and didn't have the chance to ask the medical student on the tour but I don't know if this info was actually on the website it might suggest my lack of research into the uni :/

    No that's a pretty legit question, even if it does say on the website, it won't be in much detail.. I didn't know what PBL was going to involve until I did it. Just incase you still want to know, it's 1 session a week for the first 2(ish) terms of year 1 and that's it. First year is mostly lectures and labs/tutorials/dissections and a very little bit of PBL, second year is just lectures and tutorials/dissections (and it's killing me hahaha). It's like 5 lectures a day at the moment or a day of anatomy teaching

    It's more than twice a term, I think you have about 6ish per term? Basically you have a number of cases each term with 2 sessions per case. In the first session, you read the case and pick out what you want to learn from it, you then assign everyone in the group one of these learning objectives each and then everyone goes away and does a powerpoint answering their learning objective and presents it back to the group in the second session (a week after the first) and then you do like a QnA and feedback on it. PBL sessions were actually probably the best part of first year ngl, everyone seems to hate it before uni but they're actually good fun. It's also quite important, you have to do a research project at the end of your second term that counts 10% towards your final mark in the year, so it should be taken seriously. But like I said before, once you've done it in first year, you don't do it again in your remaining 5 years. So if you do really hate it, then you just have to endure it for 2 terms :P

    Yeah, I was asked an ethics question at the end and when they asked whether I had any questions, I asked the interviewer who asked the ethics question what her answer to the ethics question would be? She said she agreed with me and talked a bit more about it, then I departed.

    My, perhaps flawed logic, is the closer it gets to 2 weeks the more likely it is to be an offer
