What is Medical Aspirations? What is Medical Aspirations?


Without any experience of university in your family to draw upon, applying to study medicine can be daunting. Finding out more about medical careers can be difficult if you don't know people that are already doctors. Medical Aspirations supports year 12 students on their path to studying medicine through the following FREE activities: 

  • A three day, two night residential from 19-21 February 2019.
  • Ongoing support with applying to study medicine, including sessions on UKCAT tests, mock interviews and writing a personal statement
  • A guaranteed interview to study medicine at UEA if you attend the Medical Aspirations residential
  • The chance to receive a scholarship to study Medicine at UEA
  • Access to current UEA medical students.
View the Medical Aspirations 2018 programme. Please note that this is subject to change for the 2019 residential.
The Medical Aspirations Scheme is funded by an alumnus of UEA who wanted to help aspiring medics from backgrounds under-represented in the profession and who are local to the University. Find out more about whether you are eligible.


If you are not eligible for the Medical Aspirations scheme, find out what else we offer prospective medics. If you have any queries about Medical Aspirations please get in touch.
