    I am studying Chemistry, Biology, History and Economics!

    I am now thinking that I would like to study medicine or biomedical sciences at university- would my a levels be suitable or would I need maths or something?

    Also what other options would I have to study?

    Thank you so much! I am so confused right now as on the applicants stalking page thing everyone seems to have maths! :/

    Have you considered studying abroad? I study in Holland and there are a lot of benefits! You can't do medicine here (unless you are fluent in Dutch) but you can do biochemistry. The university colleges lets you make your own degree. So if you wanted you can do a biology degree with tracks in chemistry and history for example. It's an international honours college so if you graduate with a 3.0 here, its the equivilant of the British 2:1 so you can still apply for masters programs in the UK and all over the world. What are the benefits? The tuition fee is only 3,500 euros per year! If you work 8 hours a week you can get upto 900 euros per month (and only have to pay half of it back) plus free weekday or weekend travel. There are 3 university colleges taught in English in Holland; Utrecht, Amsterdam and Maastricht (although I personally wouldn't recommend Maastricht because they recently lost their honours status)

    Do you work for a Dutch university? Your post sounds a bit like an advert, tbh...

    No I don't work for a university, I'm just a student, it's something I e-mailed to my German teacher because one of her students were asking about studying elsewhere in Europe
