EDGE Hill University Medical School has announced the launch of a Foundation Year for Medicine, starting in 2019.
The one-year course will prepare students to enter the five-year medical degree that starts in 2020.
The Foundation Year is for students from the region who have the right A-level qualifications, but need to reach a higher academic standard before they can start on a degree in Medicine. Applications will be through UCAS with a deadline of October 15, 2018.
The new Edge Hill University Medical School is one of only three new freestanding medical schools in the country, with a mission to develop a new generation of doctors who understand the needs of the local communities and can drive forward new models of care.
Successful completion of the Foundation Year at the required pass mark enables progression onto the five-year MBChB medical programme at Edge Hill University which commences in 2020.
Undergraduate medical education delivered by all universities is subject to a GMC approval process and the MBChB programme at Edge Hill University is due to complete the required stages of that process for September 2020 entry.
Anyone interested in the Foundation Year can find out more at the Edge Hill University Open Day on Saturday, June 16, details at ehu.ac.uk/opendays
