Neuroscience, so semi-related! How about you?
Thats amazing and really hard so congrats!!
Mine is in Clinical Science, its a bit of a mix of medicine, pharmacy and biomed modules.
Neuroscience really helps with all of the physiology and patholgoy stuff as my current focus is on neuropathology

on the portal page it says you can only apply for accommodation after you've accepted a place. not great for me cos Cardiff is my first choice and I still have one more interview to go and no offers (except Cardiff of course). I hope I can still get taly even if its first come first served
(Original post by Anna191817)
Haha same - Cardiff is the only medicine offer I’ve had so far
If Cardiff is your first choice, and you know that is definately where you want to go, and you have an offer from them, then you may as well Firm Cardiff now. That way you will be at the front of the queue regarding accommodation. I take it the other uni's you are waiting on are likely to be your insurance place.

Just to let you all know I have a medicine blog which will support you for the coming months if you search it Cardiff university student bloggers it will come up and more than happy to discuss questions you have from it on here!
Hey so I think Cardiff is going to be my insurance choice behind QUB. I was wondering what the first year schedule is like and if it’s easy enough to find a part time job and I’m originally from Ireland

Hi, do you think its manageable to have a part time job whilst studying? I know first year (particularly their first few months) are intense from speaking to some students there, so should I just hold off until I’m settled in?
Note: just saw the question above sorry

So first term is busier where you learn core anatomy (full body dissection!) and core physiology which helps to ease you into self directed learning then second term you start case based learning where you go on placement once a week it's really nice structure new case every 2 weeks and you don't even realise how much you learn just from first year alone it's great!

Best of luck! If you need any help with any science content such as chemistry feel free to ask! I struggled with it at A level and only got the hang of it during my degree lol x

Ah I loved doing cadaveric dissection during Biomed, can’t wait to do it all again! I was amazed how quickly I learnt all the anatomy, defo a big plus of Cardiff medical school.

To answer this bit about the job I would say yeah like you said in the first term it is harder and would suggest taking the time to settle in but once you start case based learning definitely chance to work. The students union also have a great scheme called Jobshop where you can pick up casual work such as working in shops in SU, open days etc. I've found it really useful to make bits of money to help pay for driving lessons 😭

Can you advise what sort of work the first term entails? I’m on a gap year so have been working in social care rather than studying academically. I want to enjoy the first term too, making friends etc. Is there anything I can do later in the summer to prepare for first term so it isn’t too much of a work shock?

The first term covers some core anatomy and physiology - it does recap some A level content the aim of it is to make sure everyone is on the same foundation before you start case based learning. Honestly enjoy your year/summer will be one of the longest breaks you'll ever had you will feel well equipped by the end of first term
