    Hi, I'm considering applying for either Hull York or UEA medicine for 2017 entry however I haven't been able to attend open days to see them. What are their medical courses like and how is the city and uni life... is it boring or is there always something to do. Also, I have a concern about the hospital placements at hull York, do they normally involve travelling long distances or not?

    Hey there, just thought I'd share some personal viewpoints about the universities, although I'd recommend going to see them in person (not necessarily on open days) to get a feel of the campuses. At the end of the day, only you would know what suits you best

    Both HYMS and UEA seemed like very well organised medical schools from their applicant/offer days. The courses in both of the universities have elements of PBL, and have a nice student-centred approach which was a major factor for my applications. Placements start early in both courses, with an integrated curriculum. Furthermore, their cohort sizes are fairly similar.

    Having said that, the size of the year group is also an area of difference between the universities. Whilst at UEA the whole year group are based at the one campus, students at HYMS are allocated 50:50 at either Hull or York. The teaching is linked between Hull and York (such as lectures), to ensure that the same is being taught at both.

    City-wise, I've only visited Norwich and York, and both were absolutely lovely places to study. Very historical (especially York) with the cobbled lanes, and grand buildings in the city centres. There seemed to be a good atmosphere and things to see/do, certainly nice for weekends! Speaking to some HYMS students, Hull is the larger of the two and is very lively. Renting accommodation is apparently much cheaper than York, too!

    All in all, I personally felt very impressed by both medical schools: in terms of the courses, teaching, social events, and city life. Whichever one you choose to apply to, I hope that you will be pleased with the choice

    Best wishes,
    A

    Hi Medic10198,

    We're a little biased but just to emphasise we're a Top 15 university (Times/Sunday Times University Guide 2017), Top 5 for student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2016) and within the World Top 100 for research excellence (Leiden Ranking 2016).

    According to Unistats, 96% of our students have been satisfied with the quality of the course, 100% went on to work and/or study within 6 months after finishing the course, 97% believe staff have made the subject more interesting, and 96% believe the resources here at UEA are good for student needs. Some glowing stats I'm sure you'd agree



    Take a look at our YouTube channel for more about studying here and living in Norwich. We do have an Open Day on 22 October if you can make it, but if you can't there will be other options if you end up putting us down on your UCAS. We will have Applicant Days, campus tours, and more events ahead of you making your final choice. In the meantime give us a shout if we can help answer any questions about the campus and UEA!
