Medical Sciences (Extended International Pre-Med) September 2022 entry
The Medical Sciences (Extended International Pre-Med) programme offers students the potential to move on to a degree in medicine at the University of St Andrews.
This is a two-year programme of study with four taught semesters. During the first year, you will focus on studying sciences and learning to present and interact effectively in an academic environment. You will also start to reflect on how you can build knowledge about medicine. In the second year, you study modules focusing on the academic knowledge and skills required to study medicine.
The interactive teaching and learning experiences will help students understand what it means to study medicine and to be a doctor.
The programme has a high success rate. Over the past two years, 100% of students passed the programme and 74% of all pre-degree Medicine students at the International Education Institute moved onto the BSc Medicine (A100) at St Andrews.
The University of St Andrews as a whole was voted top in the UK for student academic experience in The National Student Survey 2021 as 93% of St Andrews final-year students gave the University top marks for the quality of the learning and teaching experience.
“I have been fortunate to have Chemistry and Biology lab sessions, along with simulated patient consultation experiences. These have really exposed me to new and challenging environments, allowing me to adapt and enrich my overall learning experience. In many circumstances, we share these sessions with first year students, allowing me to have a first-hand experience of what it feels like to be in University."
