We want to ensure that you feel part of our community even before you arrive, so we have put together a helpful MOOC that aims to introduce you to fellow students and will take you through some important information and support that is available to you. There will also be the opportunity to consider the healthcare and medical science communities to which you will soon belong and to start thinking about the latest scientific and healthcare issues that you might encounter during your studies with us.
