“Studying Biomedical Science at St George's has meant that I can follow my dream of becoming a doctor. In September, I'll be taking up a place in Nottingham to study medicine. The clinical experience I received here is so valuable and I've learnt that you have lots of career options if you study Biomedical Sciences – it's not just about becoming a doctor!

“I really like the fact that St George's focusses on healthcare and that's actually the main reason I applied to study here. I like the fact that it is a small, specialist university.

“To any young women or girls thinking about careers in science I would say you can do anything you set your mind to. It's also so important to make the most of your time at university by getting involved in things outside of your studies – I've made really close friends in the Christian Union Society.”
