“I decided to study Biomedical Sciences at Royal Holloway because the course

offered such a broad range of topics. I found it intellectually

stimulating and the modules very interesting. Because the library had been newly refurbished, and departmental facilities such as laboratories, seminar rooms and equipment are so up to date, it made it enjoyable and easy for me to complete my degree."
