Guidance for students and parents on the journey towards becoming a medical doctor.

illuminare Medical Education has the pathways and partnerships to empower you or your child to pursue the dream of becoming a doctor.

Our mission is to help aspiring international students become doctors, by informing, guiding and supporting them through the whole process. Our partnerships with global education providers puts us in the perfect position to do so.

Whether your child is leaving school with the relevant qualifications, needs a medical foundation programme, or has just completed a relevant degree to enter Medical School directly, we have a pathway for them.

Even if your child is unlikely to hit the grades needed for direct access to a Medical School place, our Medical Foundation route offers a fantastic solution.
