INTO University Partnerships’ Foundation Medicine Programme Achieves Exceptional Results

INTO University Partnerships’ foundation programme in medicine and health has garnered impressive success, with a significant portion of its students receiving conditional offers for medical degrees both within the UK and abroad.

In the 2023 cohort, 70% of the international students aspiring to enter the field of medicine have secured offers for a comprehensive five-year MBBS degree.

Initiated in April 2022, the programme is conducted at the INTO London Centre and began enrolling its first group of international students in September 2022. The foundation programme offers students pathways to numerous esteemed universities around the globe, including several within the QS Top 150, and to a variety of competitive degrees in health professions.

Throughout the programme, students engage in essential modules in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and research skills, plus two exclusive medicine-focused modules designed and delivered only at INTO London. These include Advanced Sciences for Medicine, which enhances students’ existing scientific knowledge with medical-specific content, and Professional and Communication Skills for Medicine, aimed at developing essential skills for medical interviews and effective healthcare practice.

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

Nara remarked, “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.”

A commendable 95% of students enrolled in the foundation programme have secured offers from UK universities for various medical-related degrees. Those who did not receive offers in medicine have gained acceptance to courses such as Biomedical Sciences, Medical Sciences, Pharmacology, and Biology at notable institutions including Bristol University, Queen Mary University of London, Aston University, and University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Robin Peel, the Centre Director at INTO London, emphasized, “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 provides comprehensive support during the university application process, including an online part-time University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) preparation programme offered during the summer before the foundation course begins.

Through individual meetings, students receive personalised support, and during group sessions, they are guided collectively through the application process. The University Progression and Careers Manager at INTO London coordinates personal statement workshops, hosts guest lectures and masterclasses from medical professionals, and provides comprehensive interview preparation and practice.

INTO London students take regular practical classes in the ‘Superlab’ at London Metropolitan University, one of Europe’s largest laboratories, where they develop lab etiquette, improve their English in a scientific setting, and gain proficiency in using lab equipment.

The INTO London Centre offers bespoke university preparation programmes that guarantee admission to over 100 universities across the UK and Europe. Its location near London’s financial district and vibrant cultural areas such as Spitalfields, Brick Lane, and Shoreditch offers a stimulating and dynamic learning environment.

Since its inception in 2005, INTO University Partnerships has aided over 150,000 students from more than 180 countries in achieving their academic goals at leading universities in the US, UK, and Australia.
