    Hi guys !
    I'm really interested in doing a foundation year of medicine in London in September 2017 .... but I was too busy with school that I couldn't take the IELTS exam. In your opinion can I start the course and do it there in London ? If yes, in which university ?
    Thank you in advice

    You have missed the deadline for courses starting Sept 2017, it was 15th October 2016.
    The deadline for courses beginning September 2018 will be October 15th 2017.

    Just to add, there isn't a foundation year of medicine that stands on its own. Some medical schools offer 6 year courses, with the first year being a foundation year but it is not a separate entity.

    If you're talking about medicine degree courses with a foundation year you could just apply and then do the IELTS after you get an offer - unis give out conditional offers quite often based on this. You'd need to do the test before you start the course. AFAIK King's is the only London uni offering a foundation year course. And if they have the same deadline as normal medicine courses you're too late - you should've applied before 15.10.

    If you're talking about being a foundation year doctor I don't know how to help tbh. I'd expect you'd have to do the test before starting in your post though.

    Anyway I'd recommend taking the test asap. It's pretty easy and if you're applying to study medicine/work as a doctor in English I'm sure you'd do well enough with minimal prep. The test itself takes about 4 hours so it's definitely manageable even if you're busy. Getting it over and done with would mean you have one less thing to worry about.
