'The University of Hertfordshire stood out for its Biomedical Science course because of the advantage of an IBMS accredited degree taught by engaging staff across lectures and practicals with state of the art facilities. I also had the opportunity to gain relevant experience in the field I wish to pursue through a placement year. I now feel more confident in striving for my career aspirations from the theoretical, practical and employable skills I have developed.'
