Subject

Medical sciences

Applied Medical Sciences is the science that underpins medicine. It provides the ideal springboard for careers in research and innovation as well as further study such as Graduate Entry Medicine. The Applied Medical Sciences Foundation Programme will introduce you to the study of Medical Sciences, developing the concepts and knowledge required to progress (60% or above module average required) to Year 1 of the BSc Applied Medical Sciences programme. It is aimed at students whose A Level choices or performance would not allow direct entry onto the BSc programme and mature students who wish to re-enter education.

**BSc Applied Medical Sciences students may be guaranteed an interview for Graduate Entry Medicine MBBCh at Swansea University by choosing the appropriate pathway, performing satisfactorily and meeting the minimum entry criteria at the time of application to Graduate Entry Medicine**

**We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.**
