Graduate Entry Medicine Courses (GEPs) - 

Graduate Entry Programmes (GEPs) are specifically for people who have already completed an undergraduate degree in a course other than medicine and now wish to study medicine at university. There are various reasons why people decide to apply for a graduate entry medicine course, for example:

  • Failed to gain a place on a medical course first/second/third time round.
  • Decided on a career change and now wish to study medicine 
  • Studied Biochemistry and now wishes to progress into medicine.
  • Completed a dental degree and wishes to study medicine to expand career options.

Entry onto a GEPs course is often highly competitive and needs to be planned out to maximise your chances of success. Application ratios for graduate entry courses can be as high as 45:1. Applicants needs to assess each universities entry and assessment criteria to produce optimum list of universities worth applying to. When deciding on which GEP to apply for here are some critical criteria that should be considered:

  • Do they accept non-science undergraduate degrees?
  • What funding/support do they offer? Can I afford it?
  • What are the living expenses? These are usually additional to course fees.
  • How many years is the course?
  • What are their entry requirements?
  • Which aptitude test is required? What score is needed to be considered?
  • Do they interview?
