Hey everyone hope its all going well with the application, I am getting very stressed haha!!
Just wondering if anyone went to the Bristol open day and what they thought of their new case based learning style? I am not too sure as I like going to lectures and being taught it. Just wondered what everyone thought. Although beggars can't be choosers I suppose!!

I wasn't too keen when I went to the open day if I'm honest.. I love a good lecture and there are only 35 spaces so I don't think I'm going to apply there!

I just don't think that type of teaching is going to bring the best out of me so think I'd rather spend my money elsewhere I guess! But if the thought of only being there 4 years drives you enough then go for it! I'm guessing you've seen RVCs 4 year course too?

Just for reference I think a lot of universities use this style of learning, it is very beneficial and not really something you can avoid - or should.
I'm at Liverpool and it isn't a rule but typically after being taught a system, or part of it, they have case/clinical scenarios that are interactive with the lecturer leading you through it. Great for consolidating knowledge and learning the rest of it at the same time

I know most use it to some extent which I think will be brilliant, but the new graduate programme at Bristol uses it as it's only method of teaching - no lectures etc. I love learning stuff in lectures then applying to cases so just don't think the 100% case based learning will suit me.

If you see the grad course structure on their website, you can see that there will be lectures as well

There are lectures in the course, yes, but not in the same way as other courses by the sounds of it. At the open day, they really stressed the differences this means for teaching methods, with most of it being in tutor groups of 4-6, working with a different case each week, learning systems through the case studies. The way it came across to me during the day is that they are trying to move away from lecture based learning to open the course up to students that learn in a different way.

I mean, the course isn't running yet so I guess nobody really knows how lecture based it actually will be, but just the way they presented it on the open day suggested lectures would make up only a very small portion of the course. Who knows!!

I'm starting at Bristol next week and still haven't had my Year 1 timetable. Please could you tell me where you found yours? Was it emailed to you? If so, please could you give me the email address as I will need to contact them to obtain my timetable. Thank you.
