    Hi,
    I'm a Canadian MSc student and I would like to know if there's anyone who has (or is) studying Medical Physiology and Therapeutics (MPT) at NOTTINGHAM?
    They say students in the MPT program is a "firm base" from where students can apply to the Graduate Entry (4 year) Medicine program - does anyone have information about this? I.e.: success rate, process, course feedback?

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    THANK YOU!

    To be honest, its no better for GEM than any other biomed/science degrees, in that it will be viewed the same when applying to GEM.

    However, as you're Canadian I would check how many GEM courses you would actually qualify for. There isn't the same quota for international student for GEM courses and I think several don't take international students at all.

    Rather than pay for a Masters, that won't always make that much of an improvement to your application when it comes to Medicine, have you thought about applying to 5 year courses? As an international student it would probably cost you the same. Is there a reason you're not applying in Canada?

    If you're doing an MSc and so already have a bachelors degree, is there any reason you can't apply directly to a graduate entry med program? Doing MPT would be another 3 years to get another undergrad degree which you don't need if you already have one - the Nottingham grad entry accepts any subject as your first degree, and you would likely be eligible to apply for normal 5 year medicine courses as well which would still take less time than doing MPT then grad entry

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
