Why Study With BioGrad Education?

BioGrad Education offers an experience unmatched by any other provider; with a programme that is reviewed and updated regularly based on feedback from medical schools. This medical school feedback remains at the forefront of teaching to allow us to arm our students with the skills they need to not only gain entry into medical school, but to become excellent doctors and healthcare professionals in the future.

All modules are hosted at our state-of-the-art teaching clinics and laboratories in Liverpool, designed to mimic the teaching environment found both within universities and the hospital wards where students will complete their placements. This setting ensures students are prepared in line with the conditions that they will face during both the interview process and their time at university, creating a familiarity which will be clearly apparent both in their confidence at interview and their level of preparedness when gaining a First in their degree.

Students will have the opportunity to hone their skills in a host of ways designed specifically around the values and skills we know that medical schools are seeking from their prospective students. We cover a wide range of key skills to ensure students are ready and able to not only obtain a place at the school of their choice, but to flourish, with an excellent foundation of knowledge putting them ahead of their peers.
