Bellerbys Medical Pathway Programme
The Bellerbys Medical Pathway is a two-year programme modelled after a traditional 2 year A level and is intended for the brightest and the best students.
Achieving a place at one of the UK’s top medical schools is an arduous process. It is extremely competitive with thousands of UK and international students applying for a handful of places. As a result we have designed this programme, in conjunction with Bellerbys UK, as a pathway offering local students the greatest chance of achieving one of these coveted places.
MP1 is best suited to the strongest students with ambitions of achieving a place at one of the UK’s best Medical Schools.
MP1 is a two year programme. Year 1 is undertaken at Oxbridge in Lagos. Upon successful completion of the first year of this programme students then progress on to Bellerbys to undertake their second year of study and application to the medical school of their choice.
The relationship between Oxbridge and Bellerbys was fostered specifically to develop this medical pathway and it is the ambition of both institutions to offer students as seamless and rewarding a pathway as possible. Bellerbys College is one of the UK’s leading specialist sixth form colleges. They have been preparing students for UK university for over 50 years with constantly improving results and facilities. Bellerbys has campuses in London, Brighton, Oxford and Cambridge with Cambridge specialising in the sciences and as such being the destination for students from this pathway.
Entry requirements – 5 A’s at O’Level or equivalent
Programme Duration – 2 years
