Medical Science Medipathways


The Medipathways Pre-Med is a unique 1-year programme taught in Central London at the School Of Economic Sciences (SES). The course is validated by the University of Buckingham, awarding successful graduates of this course a Certificate of Higher Education (Cert HE) in Medical Science. This is equivalent to 120 credits at Level 4. The Medipathways Pre-Med has been developed for students who have been unsuccessful at securing an offer to medical or dental school, students who want to increase their chances of getting an offer, and students who want a variety of opportunities to follow their ambition of studying medicine or dentistry. The course content is identical to the first stage of our unique 2-year BSc. and successful graduates of this 1-year programme who have not secured a place at medical or dental school may opt to transfer directly into the 2nd stage of our 2-year BSc and then re-apply for medical or dental school in the UK or abroad after completion of the BSc.
