Graduate Entry Medicine (GEM)

Choosing to undertake a four or five year degree course after completing a previous degree can be a difficult decision but with more mature students then ever entering medicine, there is arguably no better time. Graduates can apply to the standard undergraduate medical course or apply to an accelerated four year GEM course offered by certain medical schools.

GEM Courses
Choosing a 4-year accelerated GEM course is very appealing from both a time and cost point of view. GEM courses tend to compress the first two years (pre-clinical lectures in traditional courses) into one year. This increases your workload but means that if you are up for the challenge you will get your degree more quickly.

Swansea and Warwick only offer dedicated 4-year Graduate Entry courses and these may be appealing to those who wish to be surrounded by fellow graduates rather than school leavers.

Entry Requirements
Entry requirements differ between medical schools and further information can be found in The UK Med Schools section of the website. While some medical schools ask for a 2:1 in a science-based degree others take students with arts and other previous degrees.
