Name of University

Imperial College London: MEng Biomedical Engineering, 1st year.

If you are studying at university, tell us about your course/major and why you chose it.

Biomedical Engineering uses engineering methods to help solve medical problems such as prosthetic limbs, artificial organs, cancer research and new scanning methods.

What is your most memorable experience in school? 

My most memorable experiences in Epsom were definitely the DoE expeditions with my friends to both Perth and Taman Negara.

What were your favourite and least favourite subjects in school, and why?

Biology was my favourite subject in Epsom and I disliked Physics. This was due to the difficult nature of Physics. However as I put in the effort I ended up really enjoying all my subjects; Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths, as the teachers were all very eager to improve my understanding whenever they could.

What extracurricular activities did you do? 

I did rock climbing.

What was the best thing about your school? What important lessons did you learn in your school that have helped you in your life?

The best thing about Epsom was the close community, you just can’t find that in university anymore. The most important thing I’ve learnt is to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.

If you could travel back in time, what is the one thing that you would change when you were a student? 

The one thing I would change would be me making the most out of my first year in Epsom as I was a bit shy.

What advice would you give to current students of your alma mater?

Work hard for your goals.
