This is not a decision that we have taken lightly. Please stay safe in these uncertain times.
Management will be contacting bookings shortly and we will keep you constantly updated on our situation.
This course is designed for students preparing their medical school applications (usually in the summer before the October deadline). The course includes 5 mornings of UCAT test preparation and 5 afternoons of BMAT test preparation delivered by KAPLAN and can also be used as the 5 day DofE GOLD Residential Award.
Kaplan are the market leaders in medical school preparation courses with over 65 years of combined experience teaching the BMAT and UCAT and success in preparing over 70,000 medical students.
BioGrad is proud to announce that the famous Kaplan 2 day intensive UCAT and BMAT courses have been modified for delivery as a 5 day (DofE GOLD) residential course exclusively for delivery at Liverpool Science Park. This course not only provides medical school test preparation but also the opportunity to meet with students attending our ‘Medical School Preparation’ and ‘Clinical Skills and Medical Research’ residentials the same week. Evening activities and accommodation allow plenty of time for socialising with students who travel from all over the world to attend these courses.
