“Keyhole surgery was pioneered in Dundee, so when it came to choosing where to study there was nowhere else I wanted to go. I was also attracted to the close relationship that the University has with Ninewells Hospital, as this provides valuable real-life hospital work experience which is essential to studying biomedical engineering.”
