Hi,
I am going to start uni this year at undergrad level. I have to options: warwick or coventry university. Assuming there is no difference in the courses, which uni you think is better? In fact I need more accurate information, as follows: (please structure your answer as I have done my questions) please note each number represents only one question and if you see more than one questions that is because I have repeated one question in different words to avoid misinterpretation

1. Is the fact that warwick is a better university directly important for GEM admission? In other words, would the GEM admissions team at medical schools consider the fact that warwick is a Russel group uni and so would put the students in warwick in a direct advantage (does the name of uni and if it is a Russel group uni matter?)

2. Do medical schools prefer internal applicants directly? So, if I go to Warwick, would the fact that I am an inyernal applicant to them increase my chance directly?

3. If I go to Warwick, would I get a better support eaither being work experience arrangement or admissions test classes etc. so that I would be in advantage when applying to warwick med school GEM?

4. Is there any other factor (other than name and reputation, being internal applicant or providing support) that would help me decide if warwick is better or coventry uni for me to get my Bsc from in order to have a direct or indirect higher chance for GEM at Warwick med school or the others?

Thank you in advance for your help

What course is it?

In fact I need more accurate information, as follows: (please structure your answer as I have done my questions) please note each number represents only one question and if you see more than one questions that is because I have repeated one question in different words to avoid misinterpretation

1. Is the fact that warwick is a better university directly important for GEM admission?

Nope, not at all. You can do a degree at Open University and then get in at Oxford / Cambridge GEM. Where you got your pre-GEM degree doesn't matter, and where you got your medicine degree doesn't matter for specialty application also.

Russell Group doesn't make the slightest different for Medicine - both before the degree, during your medical studies (RG is a research alliance and most med students don't do research) and afterwards (as a doctor).

2. Do medical schools prefer internal applicants directly? So, if I go to Warwick, would the fact that I am an inyernal applicant to them increase my chance directly?
Nope.

3. If I go to Warwick, would I get a better support eaither being work experience arrangement or admissions test classes etc. so that I would be in advantage when applying to warwick med school GEM?
I wouldn't have thought so, check with the posters in the Warwick forum.

4. Is there any other factor (other than name and reputation, being internal applicant or providing support) that would help me decide if warwick is better or coventry uni for me to get my Bsc from in order to have a direct or indirect higher chance for GEM at Warwick med school or the others?
Name and reputation doesn't matter at all!


In fact, you'd get a slight advantage studying at an "easier" uni to get your 1st class degree!
