As a medical student, it's also important to relax and get away from the hard work of studying. Our students are involved in a huge variety of non-academic activities. These include College, Medsoc and Durham Students' Union activities. Other medically-related activities allow you to help out in the community. Medically-related Activities
Medsoc is a society for medical students studying at Durham University's Queen's campus. The Medsoc team arrange activities to keep you entertained throughout the year, including nights out and weekly sports.
I’m part of the Queen’s Campus tennis club… and play for Medsoc football as well which is on Sundays, so it’s kind of an interesting thing because you work through Monday to Saturday… and then you’ve got Sunday to look forward to, so it gets you going for the whole week... all the medics get together and have a good time playing on Sunday evening really and then go back ready for Monday.Kunal Patel, Previous Stage 1 Student
Durham Students' Union
Durham Students' Union, or the DSU, supports a huge number of societies which provide the opportunity for you to have fun with like-minded students and even learn new hobbies. DSU also represents students and campaigns on student-related issues.
University isn’t just about work and so I joined the Stephenson netball team and also played MedSoc Hockey, which is so much fun! I also used to sing and so joined the choir. I made friends with people in other courses and years. It also gets you out your room...sometimes you NEED TO GET OUT!Hannah Randles, Previous Stage 1 Student
