Monday 7th - Friday 11th July 2014
Target Medicine Summer School is a free, non-residential, week-long scheme for Year 11 students from London-based, non-selective state schools. There are 48 places available and the event takes place at UCL Medical School campus.
During the week students are mentored by two medical students and get the opportunity to meet patients, nurses and doctors, engage in simulated emergency clinical situations and visit one of the local hospitals. The summer school helps students find out what life is like as a medical student and as a doctor. It aims to be inspirational and to give students the confidence to pursue medicine as a career. It also puts students in touch with like-minded peers.
Applications will go live in the 2014 Spring term so please continue to check this website. To apply you must:
- be a year 11 student thinking of studying medicine
- attend a non-selective state school with a London postcode (N, NW, SW, SE, E, EC, W, WC), or a non-selective state school in the boroughs of Brent, Barnet, Enfield or Waltham Forest.
- have predicted GCSE grade B and above in Maths, English and Science
- be able to attend every day of the summer school to be eligible.
Unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from non-London, private school or international students.
If you are not eligible for our scheme but would like more information on becoming a medical student, visit the NHS Medical Careers website: www.medicalcareers.nhs.uk/considering_medicine/widening_participation.aspx.
Alternatively you can sign up to one of our Outreach events via www.ucl.ac.uk/target-medicine/outreac.
If the Summer School is over-subscribed priority will be given to applications from students who attend UCL partnership schools in Camden, Islington, Haringey, Hackney and Wesminster, and from students whose parents/carers have not attended university.
