From prestigious institutions in the UAE to esteemed establishments in Europe, Asia, and America, this programme helps in unlocking top-tier educational opportunities.
Distinctive advantage
The Foundation Programme, which is set to be taught at GMU, provides a distinctive advantage by offering comprehensive preparation for the BMAT and UCAT exams, crucial prerequisites for medical and dental programmes in the UK and other nations. Upon successful completion of this tailored programme, students will receive a certificate of completion from the University of London and an International A-Level Certification from LRN-UK. Moreover, extensive guidance and support for the UCAT and BMAT exams will be provided.
Lynne Roberts, IFP Director, University of London Worldwide elaborated on the programme, stating that the IFP has been designed to ensure that students achieve high academic standards and gain both the skills and intellectual curiosity necessary to succeed at university. “We are proud of our graduates who have gone on to study with University of London programmes around the world, as well as on-campus at some of the best universities in the UK and other countries. We look forward to giving students more opportunities through the new GEMS-recognised teaching centers in the Middle East," Roberts explained. 
The Medical Foundation Programme is scheduled to commence in September 2023, with applications set to open in June 2023. The programme welcomes applications from students who currently hold A-levels, International Baccalaureate (IB), or equivalent Grade 12 qualifications.
