The Medi-Prep Programme is a 9-month programme designed to prepare aspiring international medical and dentistry students for application to UK universities. Through the Medi-Prep programme you will be enrolled on to an OCN Level 4 Diploma in Medical Science which will prepare you to progress on to a Medical or Dental degree programme in a UK university. This diploma is equivalent to a first year in Medical University. 


Students will also receive intensive instruction in preparation for the UKCAT tests and the university interviews. Throughout the 9-month period they will be given the opportunity to undertake study visits to health centres, dental practices and hospitals as well as receiving specialist training days in a range of clinical practices and technologies provided by the renowned private healthcare training and consultancy company 3fivetwo-healthcare. Advice and assistance will be provided on an ongoing basis in selecting universities and completing the UCAS application forms.
