I wanted to ask about what it's like studying a medicine degree at Oxford. Is it very research and essay based, or do you get a lot of hospital placement and patient interaction? I personally prefer the idea of more hospital placement compared to constantly doing essays (especially in first and second year), because I'd like to apply my knowledge in practical situations.
Also how is the student life in especially Wadham College and Balliol College? (the ones I'm most interested in)
