I have had so much fun on this course ! The material we studied is of great interest and the lecturers make it as fun as possible. The best part by far is the practical side of the course, where you can physically take part in the experiments (e.g. saliva samples, blood samples, inhaling laughing gas,...). I had a lovely tutor, Peter Brown, who has been very supportive and is always there to help with any problem you might have, big or small. read more
