My experience of studying Biology at York

Hiya! I’m Hannah, and I study Biology at the University of York. I’d like to tell you a bit about my experiences studying at York, and what I’ve been enjoying most in my final year of the course. It may seem a long way off, but it’s here before you know it! In my blog, I’ll tell you about the content of the Biology course, as well as how it’s delivered, from lab work and lectures to choosing your modules. I’ll also mention some study tips so that hopefully you won’t make the same mistakes I did! University is such a valuable experience.

I’ve found the course to be incredibly social, with plenty of opportunities to meet new friends, as well as learn about cutting-edge research. I hope you’re as excited as I was to start your course!
