A knock-on effect of the record increase to UK medical schools is the larger number of rejections coming to students predicted A* and A for their A-levels. As these decisions filter through, students are looking for alternative pathways. While there are many options available, high achieving students should not compromise on the quality of the academic and clinical education they receive. As a result, we have experienced a surge in demand for all our university programmes but especially those located in the Mediterranean. The programmes at the University of Nicosia in Cyprus and Queen Mary University of London Malta offer unique opportunities for aspiring doctors.

Both nations are members of the Commonwealth, with English being fluently spoken by the vast majority of the populations. We have received in excess of one-hundred applications for the programmes in Malta and Cyprus. It is therefore advisable to apply now as interview slots are filling fast.
