    Hi everyone

    This is my first post.

    I currently work as a paramedic student, i qualify in Feb, and after that i plan to start an access to medicine course in the September whilst working alongside it.

    I just wondered if anyone could advise on the most suitable access courses for me (I live in Essex) and also, which universities accept access courses?

    I have from ancient times (90s) 10 GCSES and 3 A-Levels, although these are all in creative subjects. I do have my English and Maths GCSE at C grade and above.

    Thanks for any advice you can give me.


    I suggest you read these three articles:


    Also, check out the Medicine subforum for lots of information about applying.
