My journey to medical school was both challenging and rewarding. Having todo the UKCAT, IELTS, what felt like a hundred personal statement drafts, andmedical school interviews was a demanding process, but it is all worth itnow that I am one step closer to saving lives.
One thing I would say to any aspiring medical school applicant is thatconsistency is the key to your success. Take small steps in the rightdirection everyday, and you will be destined for greatness. I am excited tohelp you with your journey to medical school, and I hope that I can be ofgreat use!

Hiya, my name is Haya (close to Hi, How are you here in the UK…my parentsmade it easy haha) and I’m an undergraduate medical student in theUniversity of Central Lancashire. UCLan is a vastly international medicalschool with students from all over the world. Being an international studentmyself, I have always felt like I belong and enjoyed making friendships withpeople from all over the world. I speak Arabic and some French and you canalways pick up a few medical terms in the corridors through your friends.Regarding the course, it is very practical, with patient contact startingfrom the first week. We also learn clinical skills in the first two yearsfrom the Medical Demonstrators who are newly qualified doctors. The skillsare vital when we go on Placement where we can practice on actual patients.My biggest tip to anyone applying to Med School is enjoy the process andbelieve in yourself. You can absolutely do it. I would love to answer anyquestions you may have!
