The Answer is Yes! So with the question, “Will they have enough free time as Filipino medical technology students or medical laboratory science interns?” Yes, Absolutely!

With the given time schedules for lecture and laboratory classes, you need to set your priorities. You might have less free time during the internship, especially if you have night duties since you have to get your zzZZ’ss during the day.

Although on some days, instead of sleeping all day, you still need to attend your scheduled seminar classes.

Which year will I have more free time?

In the first two years, Filipino medical technology students must be able to pass their minor subjects, as they are pre-requisites for the major subjects in the 3rd year.

The first two years give you more free time but not absolutely. It does not necessarily mean there is less to do because once you fail any of your minor subjects, you will more likely encounter delays in getting your major subjects. That’s why, even at the start, Studying Hard and Studying Smart go hand in hand.

How should Filipino medical technology students spend their free time?

Filipino medical technology students must take a break or have a Kitkat. Simply having a break from doing your usual chores during your college days is the best thing you can do. By spending your free time doing the things you enjoy the most, you gain stress reliever from your studies.

You can watch your favorite movies or binge-watch on series, go to the mall with your friends, listen to your type of tunes, read your novels, play games, etc. It depends on your likes or preferences.

You will most likely be reviewing during your breaks between your classes because of upcoming quizzes/tests or completing your laboratory manuals/thesis.
