For me Queen’s is a fantastic place to study medicine. It is one of the few medical schools left in the UK with a traditional lecture based course, and as Northern Ireland’s only medical school offers unique opportunities to be taught in a diverse range of GP surgeries and hospitals across the province. Importantly, and unlike many other schools, we get clinical experience right from year one in conjunction with our core science lectures. This integration makes for a much more enjoyable learning experience.
Recent years have seen many students including myself study for one of the many intercalated BSc Hons and Masters degrees on offer.
Our medical school has a rapidly growing reputation internationally, presenting more opportunities for studying abroad on elective or even for a full year. We also have several medical societies at Queen’s, enabling students to pursue their extracurricular interests and enjoy an active social life. Crucially, medical graduates from Queen’s are consistently amongst the most competitive in the UK when securing training posts.
