Graduate entry is a great choice for those who already have a BSc qualification from a science-related field and who wish to accelerate the path towards becoming a doctor or dentist.
What is Graduate Entry?
Graduate Entry shortens the process of obtaining an accredited qualification that is recognised worldwide. These programmes allow candidates to begin an English-language medical or dental course in the second or even the third year of study. By skipping the first few semesters of study, candidates can save on a considerable amount of time and money.
Candidates should take note that Graduate Entry is not the same as Postgraduate medicine which refers to the studies undertaken by qualified doctors and medical professionals.
Who May Be Eligible for Graduate Entry?
Graduate Entry for medical and dental programmes is only available to those who have a Bachelor of Science degree in areas of study that are related to medicine or science (such as biomedical studies, pharmacy or nursing). It is an ideal pathway for students who want to further their education in a medical or dental school and for medical professionals wishing to enhance their career prospects.
Applying for Graduate Entry
The application process for a Graduate Programme is quite straightforward. Universities typically ask for an academic transcript of your bachelor’s degree in addition to the usual application documents.
