    Hi guys,

    I'm currently studying Physiotherapy (3rd year) in Holland and I want to study Medicine in the UK after graduation. I don't have A-levels and I was wondering if it's still possible to get into Medicine schools without the required A-levels,but with a B.Sc.in Physiotherapy (2:1) ?

    Any advice is welcome, thanks.

    Many GEM courses do not require a-levels for entry, however, you have to sit entrance exams instead and they're incredibly competitive courses to get onto.

    Hi Marathi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm quite new to this forum; GEM stands for Graduate Entry Medicine?

    I was wondering whether I need the A-levels to apply for the 5-years undergrad medicine course.

    It depends on the course. Some, like bristol, still require AAA, but others will just look at your degree. You'll have to do a bit of research.

    You do realise that the 5 year courses aren't funded if you already have a degree. So you'll need £36,000 to pay the tuition fees for the first four years.

    Yes but it will involve sitting entrance exams such as the GAMSAT, UKCAT, or BMAT depending on where you apply, alongside relevant healthcare/medical work experience.
