My enthusiasm for biology has led me to study Applied Science, including Forensic and Medical Sciences, at Chelmsford College, since 2014. This has enabled me to widen my knowledge of the scientific techniques available for forensic analysis. For example, I recently dissected a goat’s heart and made a detailed study of this organ.

I gained a holistic knowledge of how an individual’s lifestyle is related to these treatments. After I successfully completed my work experience, I attended a lecture on physiology courses which were available at several universities. This further convinced me to embark upon a physiology career. Consequently, I further researched the course modules available for each university and finally decided that I genuinely wanted to study cardiovascular physiology because of the potential contribution I could make within medicine. I have become increasingly aware of how cardiovascular physiology has an indispensable part to play in the comprehension and treatment of cardiac
