I am currently doing A-Levels and I am aiming to study medicine, I would like to do this in America but I don't know how to go about the application process and also I would like to know information on student accommodation and student finances.
Any help would be most appreciated
First of all, medicine isn't an undergraduate course in the US it's a graduate course. Second of all the chances of you being accepted (to medical school that is) are slim to none as most US medical schools don't accept international students. If your still interested, read on:
-To get into medical school in the US you need to get a bachelors degree and your also required to complete pre-med classes (chemistry, biology, physics, calculus, organic chemistry etc)
-You also need clinical volunteering work, general volunteering, as well as other extracurriculars
Can't give you any insight on student accomidation but what i can tell you about student finances. To get financial aid you have only 2 options
1)Apply to need blind schools such as Harvard, Amherst etc.
2) Get scholarships
A word of advice would be to apply to medicine courses in your country as it will make the process a lot easier or you could apply to medicine courses in Australia/UK as they are offered at the undergraduate level.
Hope i helped!
