My favourite parts of the course have definitely been the independent lab projects in third and fourth year because you get the opportunity to work in a real research environment and try cutting edge techniques. The lectures I’ve attended throughout my degree have also been an incredible opportunity to learn and be inspired.

I am enjoying the fact that everything we learn is coming directly from the front line of science. A lot of the content is research from our world class lectures and researchers at the university. This means that we are completely up to date with what is happening within the subject.

I chose to study at Southampton because of its state of the art facilities and prestigious academic reputation. In particular, what captured me the most was the friendly atmosphere of the campus as this was significant element on my academic motivation.
