The University Foundation Programme



This new course at the UFP offers students the opportunity to apply to medical school following the Foundation, at established institutes such as the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). 

We cover the essential elements of Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics as well as the more specialised areas of Human Psychology, Anatomy, Pathology, Genetics, Pharmacology and Pathology. 

We will also help our students to prepare students for university entrance interviews. 

Course Structure

This full time course consists of interactive classroom learning, tutorials and frequent laboratory sessions. In addition to the core Biology and Chemistry practicals, the Medicine UFP also offers an additional, advanced 2-week laboratory project - a valuable advantage when applying for university places.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for students who want to be in London and prepare themselves for a place at medical school. They will get the benefit of a specially tailored course, and also a great support team to help them apply for well-respected universities and institutes.

We're seeing more and more students who want to pursue a medical career, so we knew that we really needed to design a syllabus specifically for them; one that would include the extra elements needed to start their journey towards becoming medical practitioners. To be able to offer this course, with its unique features, is very exciting for us."
