Medical Physics Programme student tells all

Frida Svensson, 25, is a student in semester 8 of the medical physics programme. When she was going to choose a programme at the university, she was considering a technical programme and one in healthcare. She realised that the medical physics programme seemed to be able to meet both of her interests.

"I am very happy with my choice. It leads to an exciting and stimulating profession. The best thing about the programme is that we learn to combine physics and maths with biology and medicine - to be able as active professionals to develop methods and treatments to better diagnose and treat patients."

Frida feels the pace of studies is high. At the same time, this is good. There is much to learn in a limited amount of time so a high pace is necessary. She has time for leisure activities, but it demands a good deal of discipline and planning. Frida feels that it is important to know that the first two years of the programme only consist of mathematics and physics.

The applicable courses first come in the third year, but they are well worth the wait. She is also studying biology and medicine in years three and four. Together with the clinical courses, they have been the absolutely most enjoyable so far.

"The classes are pretty small and we also share a lunch room with the higher years. This lets us get to know each other. In the third to the fifth year, we are close to the activities since we move about in the same premises. We, the students, have a good insight into what is happening out in the real world, we have lecturers who are professionally active and many of the laboratory sessions in year four are out in the departments. The fact that the classes are small gives us the opportunity to ask questions directly to the lecturers during the lectures. Nor is it ever any problem to look any of them up to discuss any questions or ambiguities."
