Unique to Exeter, the “Create your Future” is a personal and professional development programme for 1st year students, giving you the opportunity to think about what you want from your future after University, and the practical steps to get there. This programme was awarded the ‘Best of the Best’ award by the Institute for Student Employers (ISE), the only University to ever win this award in its 40-year history.

This module explores the concept of decolonization in Higher Education Institutes, with a specific focus on Science and Medicine.

You will investigate the extent to which Science and Medicine from the Global North as we know it today, have been largely founded on colonialism, oppression, slavery, discrimination and injustice. This will form the basis for critical analysis of key historical events [e.g. Tuskegee Experiment: the infamous Syphilis study; J Marion Sims (The Father of Modern Gynaecology) surgically experimenting on enslaved Black women] and the extent to which they perpetuate exclusion and injustice on modern day education, healthcare and clinical practice. You will present your research in an individual opinion piece that will be formulated with objectivity and supported by existing evidence and literature. All differing viewpoints backed by research and evidence are highly welcome and recommended to enhance the vibrancy and robustness of discussions and debates.

This module will also enable you to reflect on the role you can play now and in future, regardless of your career paths, to dismantle systems founded on racism and oppression and contribute to an ecosystem of equality, diversity and inclusion.
