Why Choose Medicine?

In our Medicine course, students will develop the practical skills, medical knowledge and English language ability as they start their journey to becoming a doctor, or work in the health industry. Additionally, students will receive practical advice on studying Medicine at university, as well as taking part in full First Aid training during the course. Beyond medical theory and practice, we look at the role of Medicine in a wider, ethical context to develop students’ critical thinking skills and understanding of important issues in public health.

Course Objectives

• To broaden an understanding of medical pathologies, procedures and practices
• To critically analyse and discuss a variety of contemporary medical issues
• To develop key soft skills essential for successful patient care
• To conduct research to identify symptoms, draw conclusions, and form compelling arguments
• To gain vital practical medical skills during certified First Aid training
• To improve all-round confidence in using English communicatively

Time to Shine

Throughout the course students will run through hypothetical and practical situations, to develop their ability to identify symptoms, analyse findings and diagnose their patients. This includes the completion of a recognised First Aid course, as part of our Time to Shine programme. In addition, our Medicine students will work together to research key issues and trends in 21st century Medicine, draw conclusions, and present their cases to their peers. In doing so, students will develop key skills in presenting their own ideas and forming clear, cogent arguments.
