LONDON, Jun 16 (APP):The Association of Pakistani Physicians and Surgeons
of the United Kingdom (APPS UK) has designed a virtual work
experience for A-level students from all communities, who wish
to pursue a career in Medicine and wanted to obtain admission
into British medical universities.
APPS UK Chief Executive Officer Dr Abdul Hafeez, in a statement,
issued by Pakistan High Commission here on Tuesday, said APPS UK has
been guiding A-Level students for the last few years to obtain
admission into British medical universities.
“We have also conducted FREE 10 week courses to help
students write personal statements and prepare for university
interviews with success rates of 98-100%,” Dr Abdul Hafeez
said.
According to the statement, this year due to the lockdown
many students did not have the opportunity to undertake work
experience, which is an important part of the admissions process.
“To address this urgent need APPS UK has designed a virtual
work experience programme that will give students an opportunity to
learn the same skills to help them in interview,” the statement said.
It added that students who successfully complete the programme
will be awarded certificates.
It further said this service is free and open to
aspiring medics applying for 2021 entry from all communities in
the UK.
It urged the aspiring students to register for this
work experience via web-address: admin@appsuk.org.
“We have also planned an introductory webinar that will
take place on Saturday, June 27 at 11 a.m. and more details
will be shared on APPS UK website soon”, it said.
