Hey all, since ucas applications for medicine are soon approaching, I was wondering if I can somehow get into/ transfer into a medicine course after completing my course which I kept as my 5th choice in my ucas applications . for example , if I apply in biomedical as my 5th choice, will I be able to pursue medicine through that,? .. if im unsuccessful in getting accepted directly into a medical school ? thanks

Yes, you can apply for graduate entry medicine after you complete your biomedical Sciences degree

Many people (including me) will choose a biomedical science etc. course as a "backup" as a 5th choice. GEM will be an option after you graduate. Remember though if you missed your medical offers, it is shorter, cheaper and (relatively) easier to retake the A-Levels and reapply to undergrad medicine then do a (second choice) degree for 3 years then do the highly competitive GEM.

Some unis have a formal transfer programme (e.g. St George's: https://www.sgul.ac.uk/study/undergr...-into-medicine) - if you score high enough you can transfer into a partner's medical course. Remember though this is super-competitive as most people would be enticed by this when they accepted the offer to this non-medical course!

Yes you can but note it is extremely competitive (more so than undergrad due to the limited spaces)

Do you get funding for GEM such as tuition and maintenance loan?

No, I just meant I picked biomedicine (at UCL) as my 5th choice at UCAS. Luckily I got medical offers so I entered undergrad medicine.
