I do a foundation year and haven't even stepped foot on campus of my university lol.

A good course, although sometimes the lecturers aren't very relevant and haven't done research for over 30 years. The selection of personal tutors is terrible, they do not align with your own interests, which in biology can be extremely varied.

UoM is pretty awesome, there are so many things to do, in Biology and also in societies. The Biology course is pretty great; I’d say the teaching is fantastic and I am really enjoying my lectures (a first year student right now). I really like how varied it is, but if you don’t its really easy to switch courses at the beginning of Y1 or for Y2. I recently got to go on a field course to Mallorca, which was so fun, met so many new people, and even stayed a bit longer after they left to travel around alone. They really are flexible. Also the Biological Sciences Office brings in cute little dogs every so often for students to pet, which is adorable! The one thing I’d say is not great about Biology is that the society doesn’t do many socials etc, but I think that’s because they don’t get a lot of money from the Uni, sadly. But overall, I love my course, and UoM gives you loads of opportunities to get super employable.

- I do not think this course is worth £9250 per year - teaching is very hit and miss with some lecturers being inspiring and entertaining, some being the opposite - personally I have a very nice tutor (Jean-Marc <3) but for other people I know that isn’t the case - Course content, especially first year is very geared towards the medical side of biology - I’m not feeling optimistic about my career prospects, put it that way
Brilliant university lived it

Don't pick life sciences- opt onto an actual degree programme from the start, and if you want to change at the end of first year you can. It really is pointless. It's a very small group which gives you minimum opportunity to meet people in lectures as your tutor group members all take different units, and it's extremely unorganised.

everyone is so friendly and the lectures are really fun, interesting and varied , you get lots of help from supportive staff. The environment to work in is really good and there are so many resources availble to you.
