What is Graduate Entry?

Graduate entry refers to the process of finding a route into the undergraduate study of medicine by using one’s existing academic and professional qualifications. It is important to distinguish “graduate entry” from “postgraduate medicine” which is what doctors and qualified medical professionals do.

Graduate entry programmes allow students to enrol in the second or third semester of English taught medical and dental programmes, as long as they meet the prerequisites and better yet, without the added stress of having to sit any entrance exams.

Who May Be Eligible for Graduate Entry?

Every so often, individuals who are members of a medical staff team may need to upgrade their qualifications in order to pursue a promotion or a better job. Students who have graduated in a field related to medicine or a science-related degree, such as biomedical studies, pharmacy, dietetics, or nursing, among others, may decide to apply for a graduate entry in a medical or dental school to continue their studies and accelerate their route towards a medical degree.

Applying for Graduate Entry

Graduate entry applications are often very competitive and very difficult. The application process invariably includes documents and factors in complex elements pertinent to your qualifications that you may not have thought could increase your eligibility.
