Imperial Immersion Week (LKCMedicine)
Immersive experiences for LKCMedicine students
Monday 4th - Friday 8th March 2024
Imperial College London
Applications will be accepted from Year 2 MBBS LKCMedicine students only.
The programme will provide LKCMedicine students with an immersive experience of our early years’ curriculum, with additional sessions designed to introduce students to the Imperial student experience. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the UK health system and different modes of pedagogical delivery in a different educational context. The programme also provides the foundation to establish friendships and professional links between the future doctors of Singapore and the UK.
Examples of activities offered in previous visits include:
- Practical sessions
- Introduction to funding of the NHS and the patient journey
- Visit to a top teaching hospital
- Visit to London pathology museums
- Social events with Imperial medical students
There are 22 places available for Year 2 LKCMedicine students. The following criteria will be judged by evaluation of a written submission:
- Clear and coherent reason(s) for taking part in the Imperial Immersion Week
- Reflection on the academic impact of the Imperial Immersion Week
- Reflection on personal ambition for travelling to London
- Reflection on how this could impact your future career/study
- Overall quality and coherency of the response
- Level of contribution to student life and/or LKCMedicine
- Level of contribution to family and/or your community

The evaluation of anonymised applications will be by a panel at Imperial. Academic performance will not be used as a criterion for selection. However, students with ongoing academic or professional concerns on their records will not be eligible.
