Access Scheme

Open access to knowledge and equality of opportunity are very important to us, which is why we try to ensure that our research and expertise is available to as wide a public as possible.

In addition to the resources we make available free of charge, and the phone and email support our in-house medical applications consultants offer all candidates, Dukes Medical Applications supports 10 students each year through our Access Scheme, open to all students who attend a state or non-fee-paying school.

Our expert admissions consultants are available throughout the week.

Joining the Access Scheme

Any student at a state or non-fee-paying school can apply for our Access Scheme. We select students based on their academic attainment, and a single statement explaining your interest in pursuing Medicine or a medical science at university. Upon submission of the form, we will also make contact with your school to verify your details.

Scholarship opportunities

For a few successful applicants, we also provide a Scholarship Programme that includes supplementary one-to-one tuition with a medical graduate. This is for students whom we feel would most benefit from additional support: students are selected on the basis of academic merit and their personal circumstances.

All students who apply for the Access Scheme will be automatically considered for this scholarship.

The Access Scheme Programme

Our Access Scheme is designed to help promising students who may not otherwise receive support in their medical school applications, and ensures that these students have access to the knowledge and opportunities that will allow them to demonstrate their true potential to become great professionals of the medical field. Through our Access Scheme, students receive direct contact with medical school admission experts.
