  • Payment of fees: Following a provisional offer, in order to secure your place you should complete the payment ("events section" below application form, deposit of 25£) within 3 working days. The final offer is subject to a fee payment -remaining 275 pounds- and the receipt of your flight tickets. We will offer 10 (limited) places in total on a first come first served basis for the eligible and appointable applicants. We cannot refund any fees. 

  • Course requirements (Essential): Fluent in English and familiar with relevant medical terminology; we do not require a formal qualification. We invite any student from any Medical School who has completed the pre-clinical component of his/her studies. 

  • Course requirements (Desirable): We have established a scoring system to screen all eligible applications. This is based on our experience from previous years, and incorporates elements (publications, presentations, personal statement etc) that demonstrate commitment to attend the course, as well as to pursue a career in surgical specialities. The median "cut off" has been calculated from those elements and sets the lowest score on which an applicant is appointable; this is based on the last series of the esmsc course.
