The BM(EU) degree offered a great and unique opportunity to study medicine in two languages and countries and I knew it would open doors for me, in the UK as well as in Europe. And now I have completed the programme I feel educated, free and independent.

Now I have completed the programme I feel educated, free and independent.

The course offers many opportunities to meet new people and learn from inspirational academics. I have been able to learn about a totally different health care system, which has helped me to appreciate and understand the good aspects as well as the bad aspects of certain health care systems. The study years in Southampton were structured and practical, which was really beneficial and the things we’ve learned are very useful for our future. I know from other German medical programmes that this is not always the case.

Southampton is an attractive place to study – the campus facilities are great. In particular I really liked the Hartley Library as it had a nice atmosphere and a great number of books and social areas. Southampton is a student city and one has many sports offers and student clubs to explore.

The surrounding areas are very special. South England has a beautiful and rich nature and travelling is made really easy by train or car. I’ve had an excellent time traveling with family or friends. Everything – the Isle of Wight, Brighton, Bournemouth, Lulworth Cove and London – is quite close.

Due to the programme being internationally-focused, you get to meet many other people outside from where you’re from. During my time in Kassel, I was able to meet and get to know some important and very kind people from other universities and had the opportunity to participate and collaborate with another study group, which led to a paper being published.

I have had a great experience on the BM(EU). I would now like to go on and work on an international level; I can imagine going to my home country of Mongolia to give back my medical knowledge to the locals and people, but I can also see myself working in other countries in the future. Wherever I work, I know that studying in Southampton will have helped me achieve my goals.
