How to Study Medicine in Europe With BTECs

What is BTEC?

The BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) Extended Diploma is a Further Education qualification taken in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. BTECs are adaptable.  You may take them at schools and colleges alongside (or instead of) GCSEs and A levels. They're also typically pursued full-time in college or a combined programme between a school and a college.

There are three levels of BTEC qualifications:

  • BTEC Firsts
  • BTEC Nationals
  • BTEC Apprenticeships

Can you study medicine with BTEC?

Yes, you can. Many students have come to us recently asking if they can get accepted into medical schools in Europe with BTECs. While having covered A-levels is generally better, some of our top medical universities in Europe accept students who have a BTEC Diploma.

Indeed, the UK medical and dental schools don’t recognise BTECs. However, here in Europe, the universities seek, rely on, and appreciate students’ enthusiasm and motivation to pursue medicine.

We’ve helped hundreds of ambitious students like yourself with BTECs fulfil their dreams of becoming doctors and dentists.

Also, you aren’t required to do a foundation year like in some universities in the UK so that you can enrol in a first entry 6-year program right away.

Universities that accept BTEC to study medicine

Getting into medicine with BTEC is a realistic option for you.

We live in a society where people are hired and admitted to colleges mainly based on what they have on a piece of paper rather than who they are as people.

Our agency has grown to think outside the box and embrace students for their passion and dedication to become who they’ve always wanted to be.

Most medical universities in Europe have evolved to think like this too.
