What Our Students Think

Studying at Southampton has really opened my eyes. I have met people from so many different backgrounds and I feel this has helped to develop my skills as a future doctor.

Southampton’s BM6 programme offered me the independence I wanted alongside the support I needed to take full advantage of the wide range of educational and social opportunities available here.

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

I chose Southampton because of the course’s early interaction with patients. I really enjoyed the early clinical exposure you get on the course. It was really important to me because it puts into context, straight away, what you are learning.

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’ve had a fantastic time at Southampton and made incredible friends who I will take with me for the rest of my life. Throw yourself into everything you can, especially for those first few years.

My time at Southampton has been brilliant. When I visited it, I felt it was a really great place to be – there was a buzz on campus and the facilities were a high standard. The course has so much to offer.

I feel very proud to have studied at Southampton – it has given me the skill base and knowledge to be a junior doctor and further grow and develop as a person and professional from this point onwards

From the first year we had contact with patients, which helped develop our communication and patient skills right from the start.

I have not only enjoyed the content of the course, but many of the students and staff that I have met along the way have been friendly, kind and supportive.

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.

Southampton has pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me grow in confidence so I can take on the opportunities and challenges of a long term career in medicine.

Studying in Southampton has helped me become very open minded and self-independent. I am so glad that I had the chance to have this great educational experience.

Medicine at Southampton is interactive, varied and fun! We have a wide range of teaching styles, from practical tasks in the anatomy lab to small group tutorials and whole-year lectures. There are so many ways to learn and interact with lecturers and peers and there’s a teaching-style for everyone and no day is ever the same.

Medicine at Southampton prepares you for what it is like in the medical world. During my first and second year I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with patients either in a GP practice or hospital setting.

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.
