Course summary

Our Gateway2Medicine (G2M) programme has been designed to transform the aspirations and ambitions of secondary school pupils from the most deprived areas in Scotland, and who may have considered that application to medical school is too ambitious, unrealistic and out of their reach. In our unique partnership with North East Scotland College (NESCOL), our G2M course will provide a novel, accessible and supportive route into medicine for these applicants, that will allow them to reach their full potential and become doctors. Students are guaranteed a place on year 1 of the University's MBChB programme providing they: fulfil the academic criteria to be awarded the Cert HE in Pre-Medical Studies, perform satisfactorily at the MBChB Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI's), normally held in late March, and satisfactorily complete the UKCAT. Successful students will also be required to complete a confidential health questionnaire and join Disclosure Scotland’s PVG Scheme. Students who do not meet the required standards or who do not wish to progress to year 1 medicine will be fully supported into alternative further or higher education courses at either NESCOL or the University of Aberdeen.
