You are never alone at university, however sometimes this might feel like the case. Galenicals runs a variety of programmes throughout the year to help with student support each other; these include the Families Scheme (pastoral care for freshers by second year students), and Welfare Rep System. We hope we can provide a good welfare system in conjunction with the Student Advice Service to offer ongoing and personalised support when required/for those in need of a little extra.
Medical students elect Year Representatives in addition to the main Committee. We also represent the clinical years at monthly meetings with the Academy managers; these are an opportunity to communicate any issues that you might have regarding the academies.
