    Hey I'm a med sci student! I've just finished first year so any questions let me know
    Hey!
    You are the first person i've come across in the whole website that does my course!
    Are you enjoying it? I was also wondering what student accommodation you went to. I applied to Portsburgh as my first choice even though it's further away from King's. Are most lectures in King's or in George Square? Thank you!

    Great choice! I'm just finishing 4th year of Medical Sciences and I love it here. There aren't many differences between biomed and MedSci, but MedSci has an Anatomy course in the 2nd year where you get to use cadavers (and all biomed students envy us ). Also, the course is much smaller than biomed, but for the first 2-3 years you still get to enjoy ~300 classmates in popular courses like genetics. Good luck!
    I'm quite glad that the course is smaller. I've heard about the cadavers! I went to the post offer day and the course looks really interesting and i like the idea of the elective courses

    Oh great haha! I'm glad they have a shuttle bus! Do you know what you want to do after you've graduated? I know the course is good for people wanting to do post grads?!

    A good 50% of my year want to do medicine as a post grad but most won't end up doing that, only about 3-5 people each year actually get into medicine afterwards. I'm thinking physician assistant at the moment but not sure. You're right though, it is a great springboard for further study, a very versatile degree

    So for those who want to go onto further study (including myself), would you say that the fact that the degree is not IBMS or hcpc accredited does not matter?

    Thank you! That has helped so much! I'm really looking forward to going. Just need to sort out all my SAAS things and wait to hear back about the accommodations.

I do entertain aspirations of moving into Medicine, although I know it is tough. Any views on which is the better course (& uni) from the perspective of move to medicine or from other job prospects should the medicine route not materialise?
