How it works

Students who choose a Pathway to Medicine benefit from bespoke modules, healthcare-related placements and specialist preparation for applications to Graduate Entry Medicine alongside a guaranteed interview for our Graduate Entry Medicine course.

We guarantee graduates from our select undergraduate degrees an interview for our Graduate Entry Medicine programme, provided they meet the minimum entry requirements at the time of application, and successfully complete the Pathway.

Successful completion of the Pathway is: 

  1. Overall 60% average in Year 1 of your studies, to be eligible for the Pathways Module in Year 2 "Doctors, Patients and the Goals of Medicine (PM254)"
  2. 60% in the Pathways Module - "Doctors, Patients and the Goals of Medicine (PM254)"
  3. Students must have or be expecting a valid GAMSAT (or MCAT if an International student) score at the time of application

Students who meet these entry requirements will be eligible for a Guaranteed Interview in their final year, students may only use the Interview Guarantee once, in their final year of study.
