Overall the the chemistry and medicinal side of things are interesting, containing a range of topics. Good demonstrators however prerecorded lectures can seem very boring and mundane. The mandatory math course in year one and the python coding class in year 2 makes me want to drop out. read more

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. read more

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. read more
