Whether you didn't get into Medicine the first time, haven't decided if you wish to undertake medicine, or have a passion for Science you wish to pursure first, our Pathways to Medicine offer the perfect fit for you.

A Guaranteed Medicine Interview

UCAS will require you as an undergraduate Medicine Applicant to select a non-Medicine 5th choice on your application. Our Pathways to Medicine have been specifically designed to fill the 5th choice slot with a degree which will help you achieve your ambition to study Medicine, and help you gain a guaranteed interview for our Medicine degree. 

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.
