We see things through the eyes of our students, understand their needs and walk them through any difficulties they may encounter. We inspire our students to undertake self-directed learning and equip them to be active learners so they are motivated to make the most of their potential.


A curriculum that takes account of students

A curriculum that takes account of students

A distinctive feature of our programme is that we really listen to our students. Their views and feedback have enabled us to develop learning resources that make it easy for them to understand intricate concepts in basic science and medicine. Student representatives participate in curriculum planning meetings with our teachers, and their views and perceptions help us to adapt the curriculum to suit students from diverse backgrounds. This is part of our approach of responding to students' needs and giving them the support they require to succeed.


Our doors are always open

Responding to students' needs is an ongoing process. Our team, including the Dean, are here at all times to engage with students and to listen to their opinions.



 We take pride in our students' achievements
