how to make your own website


All medical schools in the UK, as well as English-speaking medical courses at Italian universities require candidates to sit aptitude tests (either the UKCAT or the BMAT) for their admission to their degree courses. For English-speaking medical course at Italian universities performance in the IMAT is the single and only criterion for admission provided a student has completed hie/her secondary education. For British medical schools, the UKCAT is the most common such test and is required by 26 out of the 33 medical schools. The UKCAT is a computer-based test that must be sat between early July and early October in the year before UCAS applications are submitted. The test is conducted at specialist test centres (one of which is in Athens). The test can only be taken once so candidates must ensure they are well prepared before they sit the test. Our preparatory programme aims to increase the candidate's familiarity with the test, refresh analytical skills and teach strategies to secure as high a score as possible. This will improve a candidate's chances of admission to medical school. For more information and for a sample of the test visit the UKCAT website. 

Foundation College has been offering a UKCAT preparatory programme since 2012 and we are proud to report that our students have secured some very high scores. Our course runs over 5 weeks from late June to late July with teaching done in the mornings of Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (11am - 3pm). The tuition fee for this course is 1000€. Early application is recommended as we only teach only one cohort of students each year. Students are admitted on a first-come first-served basis. 

As from September 2017 Foundation College will be introducing new IMAT and BMAT courses which will run from 29 August to prepare students for the IMAT exam (14 September 2017) and the BMAT exam (2 November 2017). The IMAT course runs over three weeks from 29 August to 13 September with teaching classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 7 pm at Mitropoleos Street and the tuition fee for this course is 500€ The BMAT course runs over four weeks from 29 August to 22 September at Mitropoleos Street with teaching classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 7 pm and the fee for the BMAT course is 800€. 

Students who take our UKCAT and/or BMAT courses are eligible to participate to the interview preparation training programme that Foundation College routinely offers to its own students. The course is delivered by psychologist, Theofano Megalokonomou, who has many years of experience in this kind of work and a very high success rate.

We will also run an LNAT course in November 2017 to prepare students that need to take this compatitive exam for a place at some of the most reputable Law schools in the UK. For more information on dates please call 2105243600.
