    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    GOOD QUALITY TEACHING

    After the completion of my bachelor's in biomedical science, I opted for this college as I wanted to develop my career in the field of biomedical science. I had applied in almost 5 to 7 abroad colleges and shortlisted 4 of them and after lots of research, I decided on choosing MUSC. Applying through the Common Application along with an application fee of $75 made it even easier for me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum offered to me is greatly designed and it's pretty good as it covers almost all the components and other things that are required. There is always homework after every class of every subject which allows me to practice all other topics which are covered in the previous classes.
