How you are supported
Medicine is one of the most challenging disciplines you can study. A lot of thought has gone into our support system, to give you every chance of success.
Small class sizes mean your teachers know you by name and in the first year you will be assigned a personal tutor, a clinician who will provide you with pastoral support and act as your academic advisor throughout your time at BSMS.
If you want to speak to someone confidentially, our student advisors are there to listen and can advise you on where to seek the help you may need.
We also hold regular forums and student affairs meetings where you can share your thoughts. We are always happy to listen and, where possible, will consider positive change.
From day one, you are part of an academic support group of eight people. We balance each group to include school leavers, graduates and mature students to provide the most effective peer support. There is also a buddy system for Year 1 students.
Walk before you run
We're careful not to overwhelm our new students, so we will work with you to help you establish a solid learning foundation and build up your confidence to learn appropriately.
