With the goal of assisting aspirant health professions students in securing a place in internationally-recognized premier education institutions through top-notch programs and guidance, Gulf Medical University has started the University of London International Foundation Program, emerging as the only partnered center in the UAE region. The University of London’s International Foundation Program (Medical) is a comprehensive, full-time nine-month program designed to prepare students for science-focused undergraduate degrees. Admissions for the October 2023 intake are now being accepted.
Packed with distinctive features, the International Foundation Program (Medical) enables students looking to enroll in medical, dental, veterinary, physiotherapy, nursing, midwifery, pharmacy, and nutrition programs at universities in the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and other nations with a comprehensive curriculum training as a crucial first step. It includes a wide range of science-related modules, such as those in biology, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, and STEMM statistics. The program makes sure that students acquire a solid foundation in key subject areas by covering these topics in depth.
In addition, students will also receive intensive training for the BMAT and UCAT exams, which are prerequisites for enrollment in dental and medical programs both in the UK and abroad. The opportunity for students to complete assessments for A-levels in science-based modules is what distinguishes GMU’s International Foundation Program from others. These unique characteristic enables students to receive a well-rounded education and maximize their chances of getting accepted into their desired programs at top-ranked universities around the world.
“We are incredibly proud to be associated with supporting this exceptional University of London program at Gulf Medical University,” said Prof. Hossam Hamdy, Chancellor of Gulf Medical University.

The partnership with the University of London showcases Gulf Medical University’s commitment to providing students with world-class education and empowering them to achieve their academic and professional aspirations.”
