Every week we have 4 hours of tutorials, 6 hours of laboratory work, and roughly 10 hours of lectures. All of the lectures are recorded and made available on Panopto, although it is best to avoid relying on the recordings, as it seems to be the easiest way to fall behind on a course. Every week we have to turn in 1-3 assessed problems; the feedback on these is given in tutorials within 2 weeks after submission. Every term there is lab/project report due, which from personal experience takes about 10 hours to complete the analysis and write the report.×

Yes. The rooms are amazing but it's right next to the kitchen. Some halls are better. One is 40 mins away, I'm 5 mins. Most halls have got a good mix.×
Great location, right in the heart of London. Well organised halls of residence Quick feedback on courseworkReport
Hard - this is central London. I think there there should have been more bursaries for HOME students. Also, cheaper campus food.Report
Highest number of societies in all UK. Something for everyoneReport

The teaching across the different yeargroups are quite different - first and second year are mostly lecture based with some tutorials, practical sessions and a little patient contact time. Third year is largely based in hospitals; within this you have ward time, go to clinics and theatre, and also have some in-hospital bedside teaching. Fourth year, the intercalated BSc year, is lecture based but in smaller groups, and there's more time for bakcground reading and research. This year is also really the only year where essays come in which can be challenging at first. Fifth and final year are back in hospitals, largely on the wards and in clinics, learning the practical aspects of medicine and about patient management.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
