As well as curriculum activities, your timetable also includes free time spread across the week for your self-directed work, and Wednesday afternoons are free for societies and sports.
There are plenty of opportunities to meet people, have fun, dust off old skills and develop new ones, as well support if you need advice on your studies or university life
As a student at Hull York Medical School you will be warmly welcomed into our community by our two MedSocs – our vibrant, student run societies based at Hull and York. You will meet MedSoc during your induction.
MedSoc organise many events throughout the year, providing lots of opportunities to make new friends and connections. These include a winter ball, quiz nights, film nights, and sports day. They also coordinate a range of sports and special interest societies which provide opportunities to widen your student connections within and across all year groups.
Medic Parent scheme
MedSoc coordinate a Medic Parent scheme, pairing each first-year student with a second-year student, who will act as your mentor for the year and help you settle into medical school. A 'meet the parents' event will be held during Medic Freshers Week to meet your medic parents and your medic siblings in person.
