What our students say

Our medical students are introduced to clinical situations from the beginning of their course
Clinical experience

'I chose Southampton primarily because I loved the fact that patient contact is encouraged from the very first few weeks of the course. My time here has been made special by all the amazing people I have met and all the opportunities I have had access to.

The University offers so many extra-curricular activities that it's hard not to get involved. Through the Wessex Critical Care Progamme I have had the opportunity to participate in critical care conferences, organise widely-attended lectures on key clinical topics and learned so much about the field.'
