Admissions

2021-03-13

Not everyone takes the same path to medicine.

Clearing

If your student did not receive an offer for medicine, getting a place through clearing could be an option. 

The following universities offered places for medicine through clearing in 2020:

While the universities which offer clearing differ from year to year, it is worth checking these universities in 2021, as students need to act fast to secure a place.

Alternative paths to medicine

Not all of your students will get into medicine, but there are alternative pathways for those who are not ready to give up, including graduate entry medicine and foundation and access courses.

Studying medicine abroad is also an option, including:

Gap year

We offer free guides for students who are considering a gap year, as well as real students’ reflections on their gap years.

Alternative careers in healthcare

If a student is keen to study a healthcare-related course outside medicine, there are several options to choose from, including nursing, physiotherapy, psychology, midwifery and public health.
