Medicine, Year 2
The accommodation is incredible. There’s a huge range with most being on campus/5 minute walk away to two accommodations a 15min bus ride away. Where I stayed I had a double bed en-suite with a lounge and kitchen and shared with 5 other girls. It was huge and secure as it was a number of different flats in a building. And the walk was 5 min to campus.
The facilities are great. They are all situated on campus so I don’t need to trek huge distances to get from one place to the next. Luckily by doing medicine all my lectures are in the same theatre so I barely had to move from lecture to lecture. The sports centre is great with a number of classes to take part in as well as fitness centre and swimming pools. There are two huge libraries and have a number of study rooms that we can book to hold revision sessions
I find medicine extremely fascinating and interesting. As the lecturers have passion for their profession they radiate it to us and we enjoy learning. The structure of the course is good and systematic and clearly organised. We have learning objectives for each lecture so we know if certain topics haven’t been covered in the lecture but we still need to read up about it.
I have always grown up in a city in London so it was very easy to adjust to a liverpool. Of course Liverpool is way smaller than London but it’s manageable and has everything I need. I love the docks at liverpool- it is a unique water front feature to the city with many bars and restaurants and rooftop views.
Students must know that medicine is tough. You need to go into it with your eyes wide open. As long as you are prepared for hard work and are determined to succeed to make sure you become a doctor you will be fine. It’s so important you are organised to maintain a good work life balance.
