Overview

We’re committed to identifying the best possible applicants to study Medicine, regardless of personal circumstances or background.

The six-year Medicine with a Gateway Year programme from the University of York is a Widening Participation initiative designed to facilitate access to Medicine for those from underrepresented backgrounds. Applicants must meet our widening participation criteria to be eligible to apply for this programme.

The Gateway forms the first academic year, based on the University of Hull campus. 

This year focuses on bringing your scientific knowledge up to the required standard and enhancing your study skills, while also learning about professionalism and the NHS.

You will also visit GP and hospital settings in Hull and the local area, coming into contact with real patients – so you begin to develop the excellent communication skills and confident, empathetic approach to delivering care that are the hallmark of our graduates.

Medicine with a Gateway Year students are based at the University of Hull campus for their Gateway Year, learning in the £28-million health campus with the stunning Allam Medical Building at its heart.

Officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2017, the building is an aspirational teaching and learning environment where you will rub shoulders with other healthcare professionals in training, including nursing, physician associate, paramedic and midwifery students.

After you have successfully completed the Gateway Year, you can choose to continue your Medicine studies at either of our parent universities: the University of Hull or the University of York.
