Gateway to Medicine at the University of St Andrews

 

The Medical School at the University of St Andrews offers a ‘Gateway to Medicine’ which is a one year programme taught in the Faculty of Science but with contributions from staff in Medicine. Entrants to the ‘Gateway’ who pass the Year at an appropriate level and meet the other requirements for progression will transfer into the Medicine 6 year degree programme.

The purpose of the ‘Gateway’ is to promote the uptake of Higher Education, specifically the study of Medicine, among those groups that are traditionally under represented at university. The ‘Gateway’ provides the opportunity for students who have completed S5 at school to study at first year undergraduate level and then progress to the Medicine A100 course at St Andrews.
