“Initially, I did Biological Sciences, but I changed after second year as I wanted to focus on anatomy. Recently, we’ve been focussing on full body dissection which has been a lot of fun. It might not be everybody’s thing, but I’ve enjoyed it a lot. The practical application of what you hear in lectures helps so much. It’s fascinating to learn how people work from the inside.
I’m from Germany but I love Scotland. We came here a lot on childhood holidays. I also have family here. When I finished school I thought I’d go to Scotland. I chose Dundee because of the course. I really like it: the campus, the city - it was always a place I could see myself living in.
It’s small but I like that. It’s a beautiful city with the Tay and the campus is really nice. It’s also central in Scotland. You can hop on a bus and be in Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Glasgow within two hours.
If there’s anyone overseas who wants to do science, especially anatomical sciences, they should absolutely come here because it’s a fantastic place to learn those things.”
