With success rates for international students at around 7%, studying Medicine in the UK is extremely competitive.
Medicine is a tough course to study in and an even tougher course to get into if you’re aiming to study in the UK. The low success rates for international students means that even the best of the best might miss their chance of being accepted. Some students have the misconception that preparing at pre-university is the best time to begin, when in truth, preparation should start early, when they are studying for their upper-secondary examinations.
The Ideal Strategy for Studying Medicine in the UK is a talk for those seeking to pursue medicine in the future. It will cover what is the best way to prepare for your studies, specific skills you need to nurture and extracurriculars you should focus on to ensure that your profile stands out among others. PrepWorks has been working hard with students to get into top universities in the UK and US for over 5 years. Get a headstart on university preparation with us.
