Course
Medical Microbiology MSc

Since a child I have always loved science - I've always been fascinated about the world around me and how things work. As I got older I found successive jobs in microbiology and from this a love grew.

I came to Surrey because of it's great reputation, the ability to study while working full-time, and the proximity to my home. Before coming to Surrey, I studied forensic science at the University of Kent but wanted to learn more and help improve my employability.

Overall, my experience of studying at Surrey has been very positive. There's a lot of support offered by lecturers and wider university services, and the convenience of the study area open hours are fantastic. I've used the free scientific spellcheck software provided, the Library and shops and other facilities.

"My proudest achievement so far this year was getting a distinction grade in the Epidemiology, Disease Control and Public Health coursework."

The meetings with my project supervisor have been friendly and constructive. She's always been flexible with meeting times, prompt with email communication and very knowledgeable. There has been an agreeable mix of external lecturers alongside the core teaching staff. There have also been lots of networking opportunities with other students.

My proudest achievement so far this year was getting a distinction grade in the Epidemiology, Disease Control and Public Health coursework, even though I found the subject matter challenging.

The most enjoyable thing about the University of Surrey is the beautiful campus and surroundings, including its proximity to Guildford and the multicultural nature of the town and University.
