Hello! My name is Abdallah and I am a second year medical student at the University of Central Lancashire. I am originally from Kenya, and I speak both Swahili and English.
My journey to medical school was both challenging and rewarding. Having to do the UKCAT, IELTS, what felt like a hundred personal statement drafts, and medical school interviews was a demanding process, but it is all worth it now that I am one step closer to saving lives.
One thing I would say to any aspiring medical school applicant is that consistency is the key to your success. Take small steps in the right direction everyday, and you will be destined for greatness. I am excited to help you with your journey to medical school, and I hope that I can be of great use!
Habari! Jina langu ni Abdallah na mimi ni mwanafunzi wa matibabu katika Chuo Kikuu cha UCLan. Natumai kwamba ukiwa na bidii ya kufanikiwa katika masomo la matibabu, utaenda mbali!"

Hiya, my name is Haya (close to Hi, How are you here in the UK…my parents made it easy haha) and I’m an undergraduate medical student in the University of Central Lancashire. UCLan is a vastly international medical school with students from all over the world. Being an international student myself, I have always felt like I belong and enjoyed making friendships with people from all over the world. I speak Arabic and some French and you can always pick up a few medical terms in the corridors through your friends. Regarding the course, it is very practical, with patient contact starting from the first week. We also learn clinical skills in the first two years from the Medical Demonstrators who are newly qualified doctors. The skills are 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 and believe in yourself. You can absolutely do it. I would love to answer any questions you may have!
