Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The primary aim of the Foundation Studies in Medical and Dental Sciences course is to provide these students with the knowledge base, transferable skills, linguistic skills and general competence to allow them to progress successfully onto the University of Malta 's undergraduate Medicine and Surgery and Master of Dentistry courses. 

The course offers specific training and support in those core health science and English areas where these students require further assistance.

The course will provide teaching in the subject areas of human biology, biological chemistry, human anatomy, genetics, cell biology as well as Medical English and Maltese. 

In addition, students will be expected to attend regular tutorial sessions for each subject. 

During the tutorial sessions students will be expected to show evidence of adequate revision of the week's work. At the same time, tutorials are intended as scheduled learning sessions in which students will receive training in how to apply their knowledge base and practice their language and communication skills.

The course will include continuous assessments to build up a realistic profile of the student's abilities. Tutors will be required to assess students periodically. As the course progresses and the level of spoken and written English improves and the mastery of subject content improves, students will be expected to show evidence of higher analytical and evaluation skills.
