Varied teaching material and methods right from the beginning. Some lecturers leave a lot to be desired but these are few and far between, and the organisers of each module are always passionate and make excellent lecturers. Except genetics. Career prospects are great, particularly as in Edinburgh you will meet many valuable contacts and gain exposure to research as well as practice. read more
