I knew I wanted to do Medicine before coming to College so I needed to do Biology and Chemistry and I thought Psychology would be helpful with a Medicine degree. It’s already helpful now looking at it and it’s really interesting. It’s so nice trying something new. [Emily] was our Medics’ Academy lecturer and she was absolutely amazing.
