Ranking and student feedback
(Medicine and surgery)
University of Dundee evaluation:
14.3 : 1
Medicine and surgery evaluation:
Infertility is a common disease with approximately 1 in 7 couples of reproductive age being diagnosed as infertile (equating to 72.5 million people globally). There is an increasing demand for Assisted Conception Treatment (ART) with up to 6% of births in the EU being a result of ART. As such there is a clear need for medical students to have up to date information on these subjects and provide them with the ability to analyse the subject critically. ART is consistently in the media (e.g. related to saviour sibling, sex selection, egg freezing etc.) and is a popular, interesting and stimulating subject for the students.
1st or upper second class hours degree (lower class honours degrees will be considered under exceptional circumstances ) in the field of biological, biochemical or biomedical sciences.

About this university
For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Advice Service is available to help them with all aspects of the transition. They offer confidential advice and help on matters such as immigration and visas, working during and after studies as well as community group information and links to international hospitality schemes. There is support for international families as well as arranging cultural and social events during the year aimed primarily at international students. They are based in the Enquiry Centre on Campus Green or via email. Students are represented by the University's Student Representative Council while the Students Association organises the societies, clubs and organisations outside the classroom. It is unusual because it isn't a member of the National Union of Students due to cost and political considerations. The union is based in Airlie Place, at the centre of the main campus and has a bar, nightclub and refectory on site. There are 42 clubs associated with the Sports Union at the university and these have annual award ceremonies as well as an annual Ball. A multi-million pound redevelopment saw a number of new facilities for sports around the university including the first UK gym with mp3/mp4 compatible personal viewing screens.
