Some of our Year 10 students have been successful in their applications on to Lancaster University’s Access to Medicine Programme.
The programme was open to thirty-two Year 10 students in Cumbria, and is designed to provide them with an awareness and overview of medicine as a career option, and to raise their aspirations towards studying medicine at university.
Karen Kelso, Assistant Headteacher and Subject Leader in Science, commented:
“I’m extremely proud of the students who have applied for this exciting opportunity and that all of them have been accepted. This demonstrates our partnership with families to secure the very best for our students. I look forward to hearing how they get on.”
The programme will include teaching, practical sessions and information on the application processes.
Programme details below:
- Saturday 24th February (12-3.30pm) – Kirkbie Kendal School, Kendal
- Saturday 10th March (12-3.30pm) – Furness General Hospital, Barrow in Furness
- Saturday 17th March (12-3.30pm) – Lancaster University campus
In order to be eligible students should be predicted to achieve suitable GCSEs (A*-Bs) in subjects suitable for studying medicine (Maths, English and all three sciences; they must be studying at least core and additional science, or all three separate science GCSEs). They should also have a general interest in science or healthcare related disciplines.
