Course articulation is the process of matching courses and requirements to course work completed
at another university or institution, meaning that the student will not have to repeat any work that
they have already done at a different university. With so much competition for the very limited
number of spaces at medical school, it can be difficult to commit to a course that might, or equally
might not, lead you on to the next opportunity, but at Medipathways we can offer a solution to that.
Offering two different articulation routes, we understand that it’s important to know what courses
will be open to you in the future, which is why with us you will know what your future options are
before you even complete your current course. This helps students to focus on their work in a more
long term manner, leading to better results and an increased chance of exceeding expectations.
The 1+2 articulation route is otherwise known as a ’3-year BSc with A-levels’, and includes
one year of an intensive A level or Foundation programme taught at a Medipathways approved
articulation provider, with a conditional offer for a place on our 2-year BSc. (Hons) Biomedical
Science given at the start. You wouldn’t be competing with external candidates, and as long as you
met the entry criteria after a successful application, you have a guaranteed place. To complete A
levels and a BSc. (Hons) usually takes five years, but with our articulation route it can be done in
The other option that is offered at Medipathways is the 2+4 articulation route, which is in
association with European 4-Year Graduate Entry medical schools. This route means that you spend
two years in London studying our BSc. (Hons) in Biomedical Science, and as long as you meet
the required grades after a successful application, you are guaranteed a place on a 4 year medical
programme in eastern Europe. It is suitable for anyone who meets the entry requirements for our
BSc, and wishes to study medicine abroad. If you complete the first two years in London and then
get offered a place at a UK medical school, there is no penalisation for not following through with
the six-year articulation route. So why do 6-years abroad now, when you can do the first 2 years in
London, get a BSc and funding and still have a shot at UK medical school as a graduate?
Completing the first two years in London means that you can still apply for student finance (which
you cannot apply for if you are studying abroad), and an offer onto the four year degree course
is given before you start the BSc. If you are a US student, you will also benefit from Title IV
funding. It means that graduates will have a BSc. in Biomedical Science and a recognised medical
degree in just six years, putting them ahead of the competition and making them more appealing to
This route is ideal for those who have not quite achieved their required A level grades to get into a
UK medical school, as the entry requirements for our BSc are lower than that of a medical school,
and it can have you fully qualified in the same amount of time. For more information about this
