Friendly, supportive community

When you study with us, you'll join a vibrant and welcoming department. We have a collaborative international community of students, staff, and alumni.

You'll be supported by approachable academic staff, who take the time to get to know you and enable you to make the most of your experience studying with us.

The teaching staff are really inspiring, as they are all undertaking their own research in the labs. It allows me to expand my thinking to future therapies, technologies, and techniques in medical research, and to look beyond the things I learned during my undergraduate degree.
