Hello everyone!

So, I'm a French student in high school and my dream is to come to England to study medicine.
I know it’s late to apply. But I want to know if after doing and passing the 1st year of medicine in France ( I hope 🙏 btw because this is very selective too ) if I can apply directly in the 2nd grade.

If you know something about this, please tell me .

It is 100% not possible I'm afraid. No UK med school accepts transfer from overseas.

Your best option is to take a gap year and apply. There is a quota for international medical students which makes medicine a lot more competitive so you should still apply to French medical schools as a back up option. You can find the breakdown of places here

ecolier is right and so is hungrysalamander.

You should apply to UK universities for year 1 entry and also French medical unis at the same time, as it is highly competitive to get a place as an international med student in the UK.

I'm afraid you wouldn't be allowed to transfer your studies to a UK uni after already having done a year in a French uni. It could be worth exploring if any French medical unis have international partnerships with UK unis so you could do a year of placement/study here - although I'm not sure if this even exists however worth you researching perhaps.

Is finishing your medicine study in France to apply in England to work there as a doctor not an option for you? just an idea.

I don't know, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Just take a gap year and reapply for 2023 entry as I kept saying on TSR.

I don't think Glasgow has any transfer schemes for medicine, but I wouldn't recommend doing any degree for the sole purpose of transferring as you would be limited to 1 medical school and it's more competitive than taking a gap year and reapplying to 4 medical schools.

Hi there.
Unfortunately I don't think this is possible to automatically transfer however upon checking the site below it does say you can apply for undergrad medicine after a year of study on another degree.

Best wishes.

Very late sorry! To answer your question is no because I prefer to study in England instead of France, I love that country and there is a better life there and most inclusive for people of color contrary to France, in my opinion.

Better later than never. You have your points and your reasons and I wish you the best of luck for your studies in England.
