How to study medicine in the UK

If you are an international student who wishes to become a doctor in the in the UK, you will need to study a medicine foundation course before successfully gaining entry on to an undergraduate medicine programme. Some courses are a route for learners with a good academic record in non-science subjects, while others are designed to widen access to the medical profession - but all are designed to better prepare international applicants for what is ahead.

Medicine foundation programmes last for one year and students will generally focus on biology, chemistry, maths and English. Final assessment will come in the form of practical work and examinations.

Medicine courses are among the hardest and most competitive programmes for an international student to apply for, but the SI-UK Medicine Service will ensure you are fully prepared with interview practice and BMAT and GMAT advice.
