Study Medicine in the UK
Medicine, dentistry and veterinary courses in the UK are among the hardest and most competitive programmes to be accepted on as an international student. That is why SI-UK developed the Medicine Service, to assist Nigerian students with their application to UK medical schools.
You will first be assigned a dedicated consultant to assess your academic background and make sure you are suitably qualified to apply. We then carefully select the right medical school and ensure you have sat the relevant tests, such as the UKCAT or BMAT. Your personal statement is then reviewed, edited and submitted before the application deadline.
If accepted for an interview, you will take part in interview practice with a doctor who sits on the admissions panel of a London medical school.
Your medicine application
Choosing the right medical school: Medical schools in the UK have a high ratio of applicants to places, and some universities are more competitive than others to successfully gain entry to. We can help you decide on the best place to study, and whether you need to study a traditional, integrated or problem based learning course at a UK medical school.
Fill in your UCAS application form: Applying through UCAS can be confusing and filling in your application without mistakes is important for any student, especially one wishing to study medicine. Any evidence of a lack of precision or attention to detail threatens the application immediately and we will fill in your application form with total accuracy and without fault.
Personal statement editing: This is your opportunity to tell the medical school why they should select you. It should include information on why you want to study medicine, previous work experience and demonstrable understanding of the subject and course. Given the competitive nature of medicine, our editors will make every word count by editing your medicine personal statement.
Interview practice: Each medical school has a different method of interviewing medicine candidates. You may face a traditional panel of doctor and layman, but are increasingly likely to have an Objectively Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) consisting of a series of short interviews. The Medicine Service will provide interview practice with a doctor who sits on the admissions panel of a London medical school.
