Hannah Smith

"I’ve learnt more about a subject that I’m passionately interested in, and discovered that I am capable of achieving anything when I apply myself."

Hannah works as a biomedical scientist in the haematology department of the pathology services at Frimley Park Hospital. Having completed her undergraduate degree in Applied Biomedical Science at Surrey, Hannah returned to study MSc Health and Clinical Sciences.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time as an undergraduate student at Surrey; the standard of teaching, facilities and general atmosphere of the University were really good.

I chose to study the MSc Clinical Sciences programme as its predecessor had a good reputation and I wanted to further my knowledge before going to work in the scientific industry.

The scientific field of study keeps evolving and developing and there is always more to learn and discover.

The cancer module was fascinating, and was the part of the course I most enjoyed. Lectures were delivered by external specialists and Dr Helen Coley, Senior Research Fellow in Experimental Cancer Theraputics, lectured and provided support throughout the module, ensuring we had the most current information in an ever-changing field.

I’d advise others who are considering enrolling on the course to be prepared for hard work – there are lots of deadlines and the coursework is heavily research-based which is very time consuming - however, the course is very rewarding. I’ve learnt more about a subject that I’m passionately interested in, and discovered that I am capable of achieving anything when I apply myself.”
