Medicine: If I don't get in this year, what are my options? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi there

    I'm guessing there are a few people in TSR who are reapplying to medicine after 1 or more rejections.

    This year, I've applied to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen. I've been rejected from Dundee already and can see Edinburgh and Glasgow doing the same in the not so distant future.

    As far as I can see my options are to:

    1. Reapply
    2. Do an access to medicine course
    3. Transfer from a biology/chemistry or whatever degree to medicine
    4. Take another gap year.

    Does anyone know if Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee or Aberdeen don't accept reapplicants?

    Does anyone know any more information about access to medicine courses?

    Does anyone know if any of these unis have alternate ways to get into medicine, eg. by transferring from a science degree to medicine as I heard you can do at Glasgow and Dundee?

    Thank you for your help
