Many thanks for your questions, we look forward to seeing many of you in September!
Good afternoon, I’d like to ask about your side courses. Can I, for example, take French and Psychology alongside my major which is Biomedical science?
You would possibly be able to take French as an additional class, but not as a credit bearing module. Psychology would not be available as a class or additional module but, we do have a Psychology Society you could take part in at the Student Guild (Union).
There maybe some optional modules for Biomedical Science that cover aspects of Psychology?

Hi, I have received my conditional offer to start my PhD in September in IIICH. Unfortunately, my masters defense date has been postponed due to jury’s conflicting schedule. A certificate won’t be issued until the start of the new semester. Can I defer my admission to a later date?
This is possible if your supervisor is available. You simply reply to the email provided in your offer letter and let them know you would like to defer your offer. They will then tell you the next possible start date.
