Studying Medicine or Medicine-related courses (Veterinary, Dentistry) in the UK is for many international students, both challenging and ambitious goal to achieve. With an internationally respected medical system, cutting edge technology and groundbreaking innovations in terms of research and practice, studying in the UK can be the driving force behind a highly successful career in the medical field. For these reasons, Medicine in the UK is a very competitive discipline, requiring high grades particularly in science subjects (such as Chemistry and Biology), as well as a high standard of English language.
UK medical schools usually accept International Baccalaureate and European Baccalaureate qualifications. Most universities will require you to take additional tests such as the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) or BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT). Also, some of the universities invite candidates to interviews in the UK. If you are invited for an interview, make yourself available regardless of what personal plans you might have in that period of time.Viewed 1410 times
