Access to medicine: Lambeth or City & Islington College?Watch
Just wondering if anyone has any input or first-hand experience of what it's like on either of the courses?
Thanks very much!
In general however, although Access courses are pretty highly regarded it is highly university specific. Some universities only accept Access courses taken at specific places, for example Keele only accepts from specific colleges and it must be Access to Medicine.
My suggestion would be that either is fine (I believe they are both Medicine/Medical Biosciences) however the #1 thing you need to do is think about where you are going to apply to medicine and ensure they both accept Access courses and accept them from Lambeth/C&I.
Think "where will I go?", pick a few unis and check whether they accept those specific courses (may need to dig into their entry requirements or email them) and go with whichever course is accepted most by the ones you want to do and think you'll have the best time doing. Access courses are not easy, so you'll need to have a good time doing it!
Hope that helps, and thanks Ganfyd!
I have enrolment for both in a few days, and as neither of them have been that communicative during lockdown (Lambeth just ghosted me on every platform until they sent me a date to enrol) so it's hard to get a sense of their support and the course. Can anyone send me a syllabus from either?
Wanting to apply for medicine.
Thanks so much!
