If you are a year 12 student aspiring to study Medicine, our Summer Residential gives you the opportunity to experience university life as a medical student.
This fully-funded residential runs from Monday 16 July - Friday 20 July 2018 inclusive at the University of Hull campus, with a day visit to the University of York.
The Summer Residential will allow you to explore key skills that you will develop as a medicine student, as well as giving you a first-hand experience of what it is like to study medicine at Hull York Medical School.
The residential is a widening participation scheme designed to support students from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in Higher Education.
What activities will you take part in?
Activities at the Summer Residential include:
- Problem based learning, a form of small group teaching
- Clinical Skills, where you will get a taster of skills students develop for examinations of patients
- Mini-lectures, where you will hear from clinicians and experts in the field
- Bio-practical sessions
- UKCAT preparation sessions
- A day trip to the University of York
- Fun social evenings
After the residential, we will continue to provide you with support through ementoring from August 2018 to January 2019 with a current Hull York Medical School student.
