Students will be taught by 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.
