UniFest 2.0 –  25th-29th January 2021!

Posted by heo

Following the success of our September event, I’m delighted to announce UniFest 2.0 –  25th-29th January 2021!
 
After nearly 600 students participated in September, we’ve taken the strengths, listened to the feedback and we’re back – bigger and better. We’ve expanded to 20 institutions and changed the format: keeping the popular general presentations and current student engagement, but swapping to academic panel discussions, and introducing university presentations.
We will have a dual focus, with new sessions designed for graduating students and their parents who have submitted their UCAS and are looking at next steps, as well as sessions aimed at younger year groups who are beginning their HE research.
 
I have attached the brochure introducing the week, and we would love for you to share this with your student and parent communities, and encourage them to sign up through the Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/uk-unifest-hong-kong-20-tickets-130252547877

Study Medicine in London in 2021

Posted by heo

Study Medicine in London

Medical Doorway are delighted announce that it is still possible to apply to study medicine at Brunel University in London. There is increased competition for international students seeking to study medicine at British universities in 2021. A direct application to Brunel offers an additional opportunity to aspiring doctors who want to enrol next year.

The MBBS at Brunel is only open to international students, creating a new pathway for those who want a UK medical qualification. The number of medical school seats for international students in London is at a premium. The Brunel University programme offers a fantastic opportunity for aspiring doctors who want the added convenience and experience of studying and living in one of the world’s most connected capitals.

Applications can be made directly and 100% free with Medical Doorway giving applicants another option aside of the four they will have already made through UCAS.

For the 2021 admission, A-level candidates will be required to gain an AAB which must include Biology or Chemistry plus one additional science from Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Maths. IB candidates should have, or be expected to achieve, a total score of at least 33 points with Higher Level 6 and Higher Level 5 in either Chemistry or Biology and a second science (Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics). Currently UCAT or BMAT is NOT required.

In 2021, ten scholarships of up to £30,000 will be available. This will reduce the current annual tuition fee of £40,000 to £34,000 per year for the five years of the MBBS.

While applications are still being accepted, the medical school have already commenced shortlisting those who have already applied. We therefore strongly advise students to commence the application as soon as possible.

For more information check out the Brunel University section of our website or e-mail us at hello@medicaldoorway.com.
