Courses are interesting, tutors are mostly good (you'll get bad eggs at any university). It isn't as rigorous as my home institution but not everyone will have the same experience.

I didn't really go to uni much cause it's based at King's and who can be bothered going there. But overall the course is pretty swell and there's loads of options for specialisation.

Coming to Edinburgh has been one of the best decisions of my life. The people are very welcoming which means you will rarely get homesick. I am enjoying my course a lot and cannot think of a reason why anyone would not want to study here.

I am enjoying my course, the school of biology is really well organised and there are a lot of people to help you. Having a personal tutor is so helpful and I find my classes always interesting, the only thing is the information might be a bit redundant between first and second year. This course also provides so many job opportunities besides research.

I've been exceedingly happy with the course I've chosen. The teaching has been very good, I've been able to mold the course according to my interests. Research opportunities have been good. My personal tutor has been very helpful. The course content in the first two years is more general but becomes a lot more specific during Honours. Great course highly recommend.

This course is really hard for me because I don't have a sophisticated biology background, nor do I have a good python coding background. But it is something I can work for.(My course is MSc Drug Discovery and Translational Biology, i can't find it in this form
