The modules that you would need to take are Maths for Science + two Science modules (choose two from: Physics, Biology, Chemistry).

When thinking about studying abroad, I believed that I would get the best education here in the UK. It has been a great place for me to study. In the future I would like to own my own Pharmacy business in Kaduna.

I enjoy the social activities at university, there's just so much to do. Manchester is a great student city to experience football and music concerts. One of my greatest achievement was getting into Medical School.
