In response to a changing and challenging landscape, our BSc Health and Medical Sciences course creates an exciting opportunity to explore health from multiple perspectives, helping to find solutions for some of the world’s most complex problems.

  • Introduction to case based learning, a signature small group based teaching and learning approach for Warwick Medical School
  • Overview of the admissions procedure at the University of Warwick and tips for applying
  • Career opportunities available after completion of this course and support available throughout the course to develop your employability skills

  • Lunch break and explore the Warwick Medical School

Taster days are primarily aimed at schools that would like to bring groups of students, however individuals are also welcome.

The Taster Day is free of charge.

Who can apply?

This event is likely to be oversubscribed so priority will be given to students who are in Year 12 and have a passion for health and science.
