The Foundation 1-Year programme may be suitable for you if you:

  1. Are a UK student who has not taken the usual entry qualifications for a medical or dental degree programme (i.e. you do not have A-levels in Biology and Chemistry or have not achieved the required grades).
  2. Are a capable EU student with at least 12 years of schooling in your own country.
  3. Are a suitably experienced mature student (i.e. an individual who has been working in a non-science environment and would like a change of career, or would like to refresh your scientific background).
  4. Are an international student with good high school grades.

Each applicant is considered on a case-by-case basis, and an interview may be required.

Please note: If your actual grades fall below these requirements, please contact us to discuss further as we may be able to look into your circumstances and the possibility of an individual plan.
