Our Alumni says

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.

The programme has given me a lot of clarity on what a career or even university education in medicine really looks like. Having the opportunity to talk to med students and people who are working with PhDs, while looking at all sorts of different career opportunities in medicine, has been really beneficial.

  • Module 3 - Neuroscience And Neuropsychology: “I Think, Therefore I Am”

    You will be given an overview of the basic microanatomy and physiology of neurons, analyse how these cells produce electrical signals (action potentials) and discuss how the 37 trillion cells of your body can communicate and coordinate with one another.
