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
  • Lectures
  • 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

  • Overall quality and coherency of the response
