Study Medicine Abroad
The medical programme is designed for students with a passion for subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics who would like to study medicine in the UK, or other countries offering English-based courses. This is a challenging course (Study Medicine Abroad) of study but with exceptional career potential and a huge financial pay-off in the long run.
Elab can help you make your dreams of studying medicine abroad come true.

Personal Statement (including reading lists and supplementary courses)
Applications to UK medical schools must be submitted by 15 October of the year in which you will be sitting your final exams. This is the cut-off date for submitting a correctly filled in application form as well as, in many cases, having already passed the BMAT or UCAT entrance exam.
Since the application process for studying medicine in the UK is taxing and complex, we ensure that all our applicants are equipped with a Plan B: and submit applications to fields of study which are related to medicine, a strategy which facilitates taking advantage of the Graduate Entry Scheme for Medicine once they have gained their first degree – for example Medical Sciences or Biomedical Sciences.
A number of British universities require the BMAT from students who wish to study medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. The examination is made up of three sections: one essay and two sets of questions. It tests applicants’ problem solving skills, understanding of arguments and data analysis, and their ability to write concisely.
The following universities require candidates to sit the BMAT: Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Imperial College, London, Lancaster University, University College, London, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Oxford.
The majority of British medical schools require candidates to sit the UCAT. The examination is made up of five parts: verbal reasoning, quantitative understanding, abstract reasoning, analysing decisions and evaluating a situation and making a decision.
