International Medical Foundation Programme

The medical and allied professions are among the most difficult disciplines to gain entry to. It is imperative to have a comprehensive grounding in the relevant knowledge before progressing to the further demanding stages of an education in medicine.

Our International Medical Foundation Programme is a one-year programme specifically designed to provide students with the best possible grounding for application to medical schools.

Why Study the International Medical Foundation Programme at Bath Academy?

  • The one year course provides students with an alternative to A Levels as a route to medical school.
  • Students will study Biology, Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Physics or Psychology, as well as having introductory sessions in topics such as: Pathology, Physiology, Genetics and Pharmacology.
  • The course is taught by highly skilled and experienced teachers in a specialised medical school stream.
  • Specialist staff provide support with UCAS applications, personal statements, university entry research, UCAT* / BMAT preparation and interview preparation.

*The UCAT stands for University Clinical Aptitude Test, (previously named UKCAT, UK Clinical Aptitude Test), and is required for entry to a medical/dentistry degree at many UK universities. As of 2019, the UCAT replaces UKCAT.

Who is the IMFP Designed for?

  • International students who currently hold high school diplomas or A-levels, but would like to strengthen their application for medical school.
  • International students who do not currently meet the academic requirement to apply to medical school through UCAS.
  • International students who did not pass the UCAT/BMAT examinations and would like to build on their existing knowledge before re-applying for medical school.
