I really wanted to know what is the best uni to study biomedical sciences . I want to do a Masters degree. I’m an international student so I really don’t know which unis to look at. I was advised to look at Newcastle University and Lancaster University, but I don’t know if they are strong in biomed.

Hello,
Lancaster is a top 10 university and one of the highest ranked in the UK. One thing that makes it stand out is its college system. If you come to Lancaster then you'll be in Graduate college and you'll be able to live on campus with other graduates. You'll have your own bar and study spaces separate from the undergraduates as well as access to everything. About a quarter of the students at Lancaster are postgraduates and there'll be lots of events aimed at graduates in particular. In terms of the department, the labs are all new and fit for purpose and the department is large and covers lot of different topics.
Let me know if you have any specific questions that I can help you with,

Thank you! I really want to apply there, I’ve searched in the uni’s website and it stood out for me. I need a place to feel like home because I’ll be km away from home, and I really got that from Lancaster! Thanks for your help!
Also, do you think it’s better to do Biomedical Sciences or biological sciences with something else?

It depends what you're interested in mostly! There's some open days in September if you want to have a look (they're undergrad but you can speak to some academics). I believe Biological Sciences will have a lot more from LEC (Lancaster Environment Centre) which involves Ecology, Zoology, Evolution kind of stuff as oppose to Biomedicine which will be in BLS (Biological Life Sciences) which involves more Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology kind of stuff. I'm not an expert so maybe order a perspective to see the course structures?

Yes, I’m definitely more into biomed. I’m going to check the course structure to be sure if it is my top course choice. Thanks for the advice,
