APPS UK VIRTUAL WORK EXPERIENCE FOR A-LEVEL STUDENTS WHO WISH TO PURSUE A CAREER IN MEDICINE:
The Association of Pakistani Physicians and Surgeons of the United Kingdom (APPS UK) has been guiding A-Level students for the last few years to obtain admission into British Medical Universities.
We have also conducted FREE 10 week courses to help students write personal statements and prepare for university interviews with success rates of 98-100%.
This year due to the lockdown many students did not have the opportunity to undertake work experience, which is an important part of the admissions process.
To address this urgent need APPS UK has designed a virtual work experience programme that will give students an opportunity to learn the same skills to help them in interview.
Students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded certificates.
This service is FREE and open to aspiring medics applying for 2021 entry from ALL COMMUNITIES in the UK
