New MSC Summer Schools for 2020

Following the successful first year of MSC Summer Schools, the number of events is growing from four in 2019 to five in 2020, with eight medical schools participating.

The initiative is funded by Health Education England and aimed at young people from areas of England where few students apply to study medicine. At these four-day long events, students can learn about becoming a doctor and whether it would be the right career for them. The events aim is to give them the information, skills and above all the confidence they need to submit a strong application to medicine.

MSC Summer Schools in 2020 will be hosted by:

  • The University of Exeter

  • Imperial College London

  • The University of Leicester

  • A collaboration between Brighton and Sussex Medical School and Kent and Medway Medical School

  • A collaboration between Lancaster University, Edge Hill University and the University of Liverpool
