    I've got offers for both ucl and kings- both conditional offers of aab.
    I'm planning to choose one as a back up but not sure which to choose...
    The UCL Applied medical sciences course hasnt got graduates yet so its a fairly new course and im not quite sure if it would lead to a good career/high graduate employment rate? (as its quite a small course-in terms of intake.. so not sure about whether it would appeal to employers)

    King's Biomedical sciences course seems like a broader course which i like as i can choose from a variety of modules. But UCL is known to be a better uni... and they offered me aab (which is nice because usually the entry requirements are aaa)..

    So which course should i choose as my backup? Anyone studying Applied medsci at ucl? or biomed at kings?

    I'm in my third year of kings biomedical science degree, so feel free to ask me any questions.
    Its a very broad course, and after 1st year you have many options of degree titles (you can transfer to neuroscience, biochemistry, pharmacology...) so it will cater to your interests.
    The anatomy department is absolutely amazing, with rare opportunities for full cadaveric dissection which I don't believe UCL offers to the same extent, so if anatomy is important to you I'd definitely recommend kings.

    Hey) I'mplanning to apply to medical sciences in both of these unis this year. `Can I ask you some questions?
