Meet Kashyap from Kenya, who is studying International Medicine (BSc/MBBS6) with INTO St George's, University of London.

What do you think of the campus at St George’s?

We don’t have any big universities in Kenya, so when I first came here I didn’t have anything to compare it to. Then I visited some of my friends from Kenya who are also studying in the UK. When I visited their universities I imagined studying medicine there compared to studying here, but it’s so different here because it’s pointing you in the direction of a medical career. The campus really merges with the hospital and in some places there are no doors between them, the hospital is just there. It’s good for motivation and inspiration. For example, on the way to the cafeteria you see the paediatric ICU and you think to yourself, I could be working in this place after I study. It’s definitely special and makes it very unique.

Are you enjoying the course?

I enjoy it because it’s interesting, but it’s very different to A-levels and that takes a lot of getting used to. In the lectures there’s so much content. In my opinion there is no time to absorb everything in the lecture as well as take down notes, but they give you a lot of free time to go over it again and again and absorb the fine details of it. It’s a very independent way of studying, which I like. I was never very independent before and always preferred spoon-feeding, but you’re just thrown into it here. It really gives you a chance to build yourself and do it on your own.

Do you think the course is preparing you well for a career in medicine?

There’s a lot more that goes into being a doctor than just going to university, sitting through lectures and learning. There’s so many different aspect that St George’s offers; GP placements that teach you communication skills and workshops. There are all these different aspects that go into becoming a doctor, that you don’t realise when studying in high school. The course here offers all those other aspects, so it is really good in that way.
