Hello :hi:

This is the official thread for all things Foundation in Clinical Sciences / Medicine (B991)

This is one of our most popular courses, so we thought it best to create a thread where students past, present and future can chat and ask questions :question::question::question::question:

The course provides varied study options to students such as Clinical Sciences BSc, Pharmacy MPharm, Biomedical Science BSc, Physiotherapy BSc, Forensic Sciences BSc and last but not least students may use this Foundation year to enter a Medicine degree.

The link above contains a treasure :pirate3: trove of info... but also feel free to post any questions about the course here and we will do our best to help!

Also I am a graduate in a non science subject with an access course can I still apply ?

Hello

I'm very sorry for the delayed response!

You can still apply for this course before 15th January, for the exact number of places you would need to contact [email protected].

We only have an association with Sheffield Medical School, who will consider our Foundation applicants who meet their widening participation criteria, you can find more details on the course page.

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any further questions.

What should I expect from the selection day?
Does it involve a typical medical school interview?
Is there specific questioning?

Thank you

Hi I have an upcoming interview at Bradford for clinical sciences to study pharmacy later on and was wondering what sort of questions the interview will consist of. Is there anything I need for the interview i.e. written proof of work experience
Discussion of interview questions is against TSR and the uni's rules

Hi Joe
I have a few questions about the clinical foundation program, Bradford.
Unfortunately, I was declined place after interview this year -despite I had required Grades and high BMAT, so likely my underperformance at interview.
I want to know if I can apply to Leeds Uni Medicine program via UCAS next year beside can be considered if I achieve required grades in Foundation program. Is it possible? so both routes??
Obviously I need to BMAT this year again so should I do it before UCAS application Oct,2020 or what?
I am bit confused as I want to use all possible options to get in the medicine program.
Thanks for your time in answering my queries.regards

Hi! I'm looking to apply this year for 2021 entry and have a few questions!

When is it advisable to submit the UCAS application?

When do the interview dates range from?

How many candidates, on average, are invited to interviews?

Is there a theme in the experiences of previous successful applicants?

For graduates of a non related degree, would you consider it relevant to show reflection on said degree and how the skills can be suitably transferred to B991, or is there a heavier focus on the personal motivation for applying to the medical field?

Sorry for the chaotic message! Talk about pre-application stress. Thanks!!

Hi there!

If you're on the Clinical Sciences Foundation route, you will have stated to Admissions during the interview what you want to progress onto, so upon successful completion, you'd move onto it without applying again.

I hope this helps

Hi, I called the clearing line yesterday and have my information in as I wanted to get into the Clinical/Medicine Foundation course. I was given a CLR number and was told they would get back to me to tell me if I'm eligible so I could have a phone interview. I'm just really worried because I haven't heard from them since yesterday.

I had my phone interview straight away. I guess just give it a few days as they are really busy and if you don’t get a call maybe call the admissions team up

Thanks. Can I ask around what time did you call and did you get a place? Sorry if that's too invasive you don't have to answer.

Hello,
I had a few questions about how you go about applying for route 3.

Is this an application handled through UCAS?
Is Leeds the only medical school you are able to apply for through this foundation course?

They have a relatively new partnership with Sheffield which is a separate application when you get your results- around july time. If you get over 70% average and meet 2 of the widening participation criteria you get an interview. (I think)
