I am really happy with my choice of studying biomedical science here at Lancaster University, as the teachers are really friendly and helpful and they teach the material in a really good. The practicals, both the labs and the workshops are very interesting and honestly they’re my favourite part of my course. The tutors are always there if you have any questions, not only about your course but if you ever need to talk to someone you know you can count on them.
My personal tutor was above par for his commitment but also was regularly away and unable to provide full support. Other staff were obnoxious and were not fully willing to help as they had other issues that were ‘more important’ the only time you get any kind of support is first year and even that was subpar.
Loved the course and modules mostly interesting. Exams were good for final year. However personal tutor was terrible for support. Incredibly slow to answer emails and to be available for help. Took weeks of emails and visits to see them to even get a few lines for a reference for a job I really wanted.
