Fine Art Summer School
Unparalleled academic programmes
The Career Insights programme has been really, for lack of a better word, ‘immersive’ into what the experience of living in London for university would really be like – having that chance to connect with different people and comparing our own experiences, discussing what we’ve learned and meshing all our knowledge to come up with big collective ideas to share with the group in class.
I think the programme has given me a lot of clarity in terms of having a better understanding of what a career or even university education in medicine really looks like, and having the opportunity to talk to med students and people who are working with PhDs, as well as going to different universities and workspaces and looking at all sorts of different career opportunities in medicine has been really beneficial.
Our tutor was amazing. He knew the answer to every question that you could think of about engineering, and knew about everyone’s specialist subjects and was happy to discuss opportunities in each field with us.
My favourite aspect of the programme would be going on trips such as the tour of the London Underground, and how engineering plays such a vital role. It’s so much easier to learn and focus when there’s something that’s always keeping your attention rather than just having to focus only on lectures and classroom learning.
The thing that I found the most fun was socialising with everyone, whether it’s engineers or the medics or business people. We’ve only known them for two weeks, and this sounds so cheesy, but I feel like I’ve known them for years because we’re always together, we’re always helping each other.
