Foundation to Health and Veterinary Studies
Here at Carmel College, we offer an innovative Foundation Year for Health and Veterinary Studies. There is progression onto Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science degrees at the University of Liverpool. A guaranteed progression to Year 1 for those students who meet the progression criteria.
Carmel College gained exclusive academic approval for the delivery of the Foundation to Health and Veterinary Studies programme in 2006. This unique course has been designed for individuals with relevant work experience or for those who have a degree in a subject which is not science based.
This programme builds on the highly successful Foundation to Science and Engineering programmes delivered effectively at Carmel College since 1995. In addition to the inspirational teaching and support offered, students will be members of the University of Liverpool. Therefore, students are guaranteed to accommodation and the use of all student facilities at the University. Loans and bursaries may also be available to students.
Please note that application to this programme is through the online university admissions procedure at www.ucas.com (see course codes below). This is specifically targeted at Home/EU mature and non-traditional students who typically have taken a break from studies.
When applying, you must ensure that you apply for one programme that you wish to progress on to. Multiple applications will be rejected and result in disappointment. We will also not consider applications from applicants who have multiple UCAS applications for a variety of programmes, as this does not demonstrate a clear commitment.
