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 at­days
