Anglia ruskin medicine & east anglia

Hi

I am interested in these two univs and would like if anyone can share their experience in medicine.
mainly about are you happy with support from univ and do you recommend it to your friend ? I know it is hands on from the beginning which I like but does that mean no support from the univ ?

Hello,

I’m a second year medical student at ARU.

I really enjoy studying at ARU, I believe we have support not just from our own faculty but also from the wider university (such as financial advice, wellbeing services, study skills plus etc). This makes you feel supported and not alone.

The teaching is excellent as we have a wide range of staff and lots of clinical teaching from local doctors who also come in to deliver workshops and lectures.

Medicine is a course where you will have to be very independent and organised in order to do well but that doesn’t mean there won’t be support and help available for you.

I enjoy that it’s a hands on course from the beginning as I believe those skills are the most useful to keep going over as being a doctor is a practical job.

I would recommend ARU as a medical school for all of those reasons.

Hope this helps 🙂

Appreciate any idea of day activities, is there any lectures and is it mandatory , also when they send you to hospitals ( is it organised like they ask for checklist or good supervision ). thank you for the help.

We have lectures, clinical skill days, placement days and also self learning time scheduled in. All of this is mandatory. Most days are 09-16:00 except Wednesdays which are usually only until 13:00. We have sign off and assessments for placements.
