Hi everyone,
I just got some REEEALLY bad grades (80 UCAS points) but I really want to get into medicine. I know it will be very difficult AND competitive but I would be grateful if anyone has any advice? Thanks.

You can't (this year). You'll have to retake your A Levels and apply for next year's entry, aiming for AAA or better. There are people out there with 4 A*s without a med school offer.

For further clearing enquiries please post to https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5638684

I think the foundation courses would require more than 80 UCAS points. What grades do you have?

Hey there!

UCLan offer a Medical Sciences Foundation Entry course - after the first year of this course there is the opportunity for students to transfer to the MBBS course but it is important to note that whilst there is the opportunity to apply for Medicine MBBS at UCLan after one year on the BSc Medical Science (Foundation Entry), this is not a guaranteed progression route and there is no guarantee of an interview for the MBBS. Application to MBBS is a very competitive process.

You can find out more about the course, including course requirements here https://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/bsc-...tion-entry.php

Hope this helps

Hi,

Unfortunately there are no places available for 2019 entry in our MBBS Medicine degree. We do however offer a foundation course that might be of interest to you: BSc (Hons) Medical Sciences foundation entry:

This programme is a scientific degree that runs in the university's School of Medicine. The benefit of this is that you get additional support if you want to apply for UCLan's medicine course for 2020 entry including practice interviews etc.

On the foundation entry, dependent on your grades in first year you can potentially apply for the UCLan MBBS, Physician Associate Studies, Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy, Pharmacy or Biomedical Sciences.

Please feel free to take a look at the course page linked above and if you have any further questions feel free to ask away.

Hi, I have accepted the offer for the Foundation Entry on the UCAS website however it states that the University needs to confirm this offer. I was wondering when would the university confirm this offer? I also wanted to know are there going to be any open days for the university before, I start my course.

I can't wait to start in September.

Yeah I am looking to share an apartment with another female. Near Burnley Campus. The apartment I saw is only a few minutes away from the campus. Because in Burnley they only do private accommodation for this year as the student accommodation is still in the making. What other course have you got in mind?
