I’ve loved my time at Southampton. I’ve really enjoyed getting into the clinical side of it and the ability to do the student selected units was really good for me to gain more experience in acute care settings. This is a good place to be a student because you can get a lot of hands on experience.

Placements allowed me to gain hands-on skills and apply the knowledge learnt in the first two years and allowed me to appreciate the importance of good communication skills and the benefits of a good doctor-patient relationship.

I hope that eventually my research will help us understand why some people may be predisposed to developing cancer.

I like to think of myself as an ‘Allergy fighter’ and I was excited to learn about new therapeutic tools from word-leading experts that can provide an escape route for patients with severe and life-threatening allergies

As an international student I definitely took advantage of the support on offer when I arrived. It was so helpful to learn from the experience of other international students in the years above me so that I could find out what to expect. You get to experience lots of different cultures here too – we all celebrated Chinese New Year this year – the cultural mix is fun.

My BMedSci research project in the first semester of third year was in paediatric cardiology, a field that I have always been interested in. By having a full semester to delve into the depths of my topic and engage in research, I have been able to explore a field that I might choose to pursue.
