The degree programme with a foundation year at Carmel include a range of courses that offer direct progression onto a number of degree courses at the University of Liverpool.
Health & Veterinary Science Programmes
Here at Carmel College we offer an innovative Foundation programme with direct progression onto Year 1 Health and Veterinary Science Programmes at the University of Liverpool.
Medicine and Dentistry Pathway (Application via UCAS at www.ucas.com)
Dentistry Year 0 (UCAS Code 0AAW)
Medicine Year 0 (UCAS Code 789S)
This course is designed for individuals who may already be working in a related career, have relevant work experience or have a degree in a subject which is not science based. This programme is not designed for individuals who have recently studied Biology and Chemistry at A Level. There is guaranteed progression onto a Medicine or Dentistry degree at the University of Liverpool, for those who meet the progression criteria.
Veterinary Science Pathway (Application via UCAS at www.ucas.com)
Veterinary Science Year 0 (UCAS Code 74JJ)
This course is designed for individuals keen to pursue a career in Veterinary Science. Individuals must undertake work experience (either paid or voluntary) in a veterinary practice and an animal institution e.g. farm or kennel. This programme is not designed for individuals who have recently studied A Levels. There is guaranteed progression onto Year 1 Veterinary Science at the University of Liverpool, for those who meet the progression criteria.
These programmes build on the highly successful Foundation to Science and Engineering degrees delivered effectively at Carmel College since 1996. In addition to the inspirational teaching and support offered, students will be members of the University of Liverpool and entitled to guaranteed accommodation and the use of all student facilities at the University. Students may also be entitled to student loans and bursaries
Applicants are required to research their preferred profession thoroughly and must show evidence of a good understanding of the scope of practice of that profession, preferably indicated by observational experience. Experience in a paid or voluntary capacity or working with the general public, children, the elderly or people with special needs will also help to strengthen an application. An enhanced police check is carried out in Year 1 and any convictions may affect further studies.
