Entry Requirements

The Pre-University Summer School is open to independent, high-achieving students who are about to start or who are enrolled within their final two years of high school and who are interested in applying to an undergraduate degree in Medicine, Medical Imaging or Medical Sciences.  It is an intensive social and academic experience and therefore independence, maturity and motivation are essential qualities for all applicants.

We look for candidates whose most recent high school grades show the potential to meet the entry requirements for our undergraduate medical programmes.
