I feel incredibly privileged to be studying at The University of Leicester for severalreasons, including the way the course is structured, such that it gives you a solidpre-clinical, integrated foundation so that you hit the ground running in your clinicalphase! The lecturers are phenomenal; they are incredibly knowledgeable and they engagein teaching students effectively. There is a great support network, consisting of notonly the lecturers but also senior medical students, who host plenty of revisionsocieties and provide excellent resources to the juniors. Leicester Medical School has alovely sense of a community and you will find plenty of opportunities to socialise andnetwork with other medical students, as well as develop your own extracurricularinterests to engineer a healthy work-life balance, which is something I truly believein!
