Lucas Parsons, Accounts Assistant 2016

"I would recommend the Scholarship programme provided by the One Group in partnership with First Intuition because it gives you enough insight into the career of accountancy to make an informed decision as to whether it is something that interests you. After completing the scholarship, I spent a short while continuing my part time job in an electronics store before beginning my first job as an accounts assistant, 2 short years later I am on the final stretch of completing my AAT level 4 qualification and moving onto the ACCA."

Do you want to study Medicine or Dentistry?

For students who may be thinking of applying to study medicine or dentistry. Most UK universities require applicants to sit an admissions test in addition to their other entry requirements.

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is required by the majority of University Medical and Dental schools in the UK and must be sat in the summer of 2017 by candidates who want to apply to member universities for entry in 2018 (or deferred entry in 2019).

What is the UKCAT?
The UKCAT helps universities to make more informed choices from amongst the many highly-qualified applicants to medical and dental programmes.

It is used in conjunction with other admissions processes such as the UCAS application and academic qualifications.

The UKCAT is a computer-based test. It does not contain any curriculum or science content but instead focuses on exploring the cognitive powers of candidates and other attributes considered to be valuable for health care professionals.
Who should sit the test?
A full list of universities / courses that require the UKCAT is available on our website.

Students sit the test during the summer before they submit their UCAS application in October.
Where can candidates sit the test?
The test is delivered via computer in partnership with Pearson VUE at over 150 UK authorised test centres and in around 100 countries worldwide.

Candidates are encouraged to register and book early to ensure they get a test slot at their chosen test centre.
