Who is this programme designed for?
This programme is designed to prepare international students, who have completed senior secondary education and met the academic requirements listed, to apply for undergraduate study for a Medicine degree at UCLan, RCSI, SGU and UNIC.
How long will I study for?
The duration of the programme is one academic year. The year is divided into two terms of seven to eight teaching weeks, a final term of up to 12 weeks, one reading week, and an assessment week. You will undertake 22 hours of classroom or lab-based study per week.
An Extended programme is available which comprises one term of English language, followed by three terms as described above.
What will I study?
This programme includes four core modules, taken by all students throughout the course. These modules are: Medical Biology, Chemistry for Medicine, Pure Maths with Statistics and English. You will have a Personal Tutor to support you throughout the programme. Your Personal Tutor will help you adjust to life and study in the UK, support you to become a successful medicine student, and prepare you for your university interview.
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed by exam for Maths and English, and by a combination of exam and practical work for Biology and Chemistry.
Entry to the Medicine is competitive and whilst students who are predicted to achieve the required grades are guaranteed an interview at UCLan and RCSI, there is no guarantee of acceptance on to the course. Students must have met all pre-requisities to be considered for Medicine at our partner universities.
In 2021 a significant proportion of ONCAMPUS UK North students progressed to 5 year Medicine degrees at our partner universities. Click on the flyer below to take a look at this year's student progression.
