Impressive Success for INTO University Partnerships’ Foundation Medicine Programme

INTO University Partnerships‘ foundation programme in medicine and health has achieved significant success, with a majority of its students securing conditional offers for medical degrees in the UK and overseas.

This year, 70% of international students from the 2023 cohort aiming to pursue a career in medicine have successfully received offers for a five-year MBBS degree.

The programme, based at the INTO London Centre, began in April 2022 and welcomed its first cohort of international students in September of the same year. Students in this foundation programme have options to progress to many prestigious universities around the globe, including some in the QS Top 150, and into various competitive health profession degrees.

Students in the foundation programme are engaged in modules in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and research skills, along with two unique medicine modules specifically designed and taught at INTO London. These modules include Advanced Sciences for Medicine, which further enhances the students’ knowledge of scientific principles relevant to medicine, and Professional and Communication Skills for Medicine, focusing on developing the skills necessary for medical interviews and becoming competent healthcare practitioners.

Nara from South Korea, a student from the first cohort, has received unconditional offers to study medicine at Aston University and Queen Mary University of London, Malta Campus.

Nara shared, “As an international student, it’s very important to know how to communicate well. At INTO, I take part in English classes and improve my academic writing, and how to prepare for presentations – this really helped me when writing personal statements. I also have 1-1 sessions with the university progression and career manager, during which I discuss personal statements and they provide feedback for applying to university medical schools.”

Additionally, 95% of students on the foundation programme have obtained offers from British universities for various medical-related degrees. Those not receiving offers for medicine have secured places on other medical-related courses, including Biomedical Sciences, Medical Sciences, Pharmacology, and Biology at universities such as Bristol University, Queen Mary University of London, Aston University, and University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Robin Peel, INTO University Partnerships’ Centre Director at INTO London, remarked, “We have designed this foundation programme in medicine and health professions to give our students the best chance of getting into and being successful on their chosen health degree with excellent progression options, a guaranteed interview at a UK medical school and unique specialist modules.”

INTO University Partnerships facilitates a comprehensive support system for students during their application process to university programmes, including a part-time online University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) preparation course available during the summer before the foundation programme begins.

Through one-on-one meetings, students receive tailored support, and in group sessions, they work together through the application process. The University Progression and Careers Manager at INTO London organizes personal statement workshops, guest lectures, and masterclasses from medical professionals, along with providing interview preparation and practice.

Students of INTO London frequently participate in practical sessions in the ‘Superlab’ at London Metropolitan University’s modern and centrally-located campus, which is one of the largest labs in Europe. This facility is dedicated to helping students enhance their academic and professional skills, where they learn lab etiquette, improve their English language skills in a scientific context, and become adept at using complex lab equipment.

The INTO London Centre offers tailored university preparation programmes with guaranteed entry to over 100 universities across the UK and Europe. Its central London location offers a vibrant and stimulating learning environment, combining the professional atmosphere of the city’s financial district with the cultural dynamism of nearby Spitalfields, Brick Lane, and Shoreditch.

Since its inception in 2005, INTO University Partnerships has helped over 150,000 students from more than 180 countries to achieve their dreams of studying at world-class institutions in the US, UK, and Australia.
