The course will also involve exciting practical experiments and hands-on activities, giving students the opportunity to put theory into practice. It is a perfect course for those considering a future in the sciences of medicine.
During the Leader program, the course will include a focus on what it means to be a good scientist, and on the wider moral questions which are involved in any scientific intervention into the human anatomy.
Hear from our past students:
Reach did not only help me to decide what to study, I learned so much about other cultures and about myself.
I was always happy when I woke up in the morning, because I knew I would have fun.
The courses were all really interesting and there was a great balance between theory and hands-on experiments.
Our teachers were absolutely amazing and I only got more and more interested in what they were teaching me, with every word they said.
I was exposed to new knowledge that I never had the chance to acquire in my normal academic environment which made the class extremely stimulating.
