Course Summary

Gateway to Medicine is aimed at students with the potential to become doctors but do not meet the standard academic entry criteria to apply directly to our five-year undergraduate Medicine course. Our Gateway courses are a widening participation initiative for UK students who fulfil specific criteria and wish to apply for a clinical programme in medicine, dentistry or veterinary science.During the Gateway year students will learn alongside each other, benefiting from shared interprofessional insight and the unique community of Bristol’s medical, dental and veterinary schools. Students will be taught by academic teachers who are scientists and clinicians.The Gateway course will deepen existing knowledge of core basic sciences underpinning clinical subjects and places emphasis on the development of personal and professional skills, attributes and behaviours that enable successful transition to university study. Successful completion of the Gateway year allows automatic progression onto the five-year MB ChB Medicine.**Eligibility** This course is open to applicants from specific schools and colleges in the UK only.
