Cambridge College | Ages 15 - 17
Learn in a city with medicine in its DNA.
At Cambridge College, our students will gain practical skills and medical knowledge in our Medicine programme as students start their amazing journey to becoming a doctor or working in the healthcare profession. Additionally, students will participate in comprehensive First Aid training during the course and receive helpful advice on pursuing medicine at university.
Beyond medical theory and practise, we examine the role of medicine in a broader context to help students develop their critical thinking abilities and an understanding of crucial public health issues, as well as to provide them with all the assistance they need to submit an effective application to a reputable medical school.
With its history, culture and record number of Nobel Prize winners, few places can capture your imagination as much as Cambridge, making it a perfect place to study Medicine for the summer.
During the Medicine Industry Experience programme, students will complete a first aid course to develop their basic life-saving skills in an interactive and hands-on way. They will also attend workshops run by medical professionals including doctors, paramedics, and more. These workshops will offer students an in-depth understanding of what it is like to work in the industry and the challenges that come with it. The Industry Experience programme aims to prepare Medicine students for their future careers in healthcare by providing them with a realistic understanding of the industry and the skills required to succeed in it.

*Earlscliffe fee includes return transfers to/from London Heathrow and London Gatwick for flights/trains scheduled to arrive/depart between 9am-3pm on published arrival and departure day.
For other locations, we provide all our students with the option of using our Shared Transfer Service from/to London Heathrow Airport and St. Pancras International. The fees are:
|SBC at Twyford School||£120.00||£240.00|
|Earlscliffe||Included in fees*||Included in fees*|
When a student arrives, an SBC staff member wearing a bright yellow t-shirt will be waiting to greet her/him and accompany them to our Welcome Club. At our Airport Welcome Club, she/he will have the chance to meet other students arriving, have some light refreshments and relax. After a little rest, students will be accompanied by students and SBC staff to board the coach and be taken directly to the school in a private coach.
The Shared Transfer Service can be used by students using the following flight and train times:
Flight lands on arrival day: 06:00-17:00
Flight take-off time on departure day: 08:00-18:00
The times outlined above also apply to students arriving and departing from Kings Cross St. Pancras train station.
If you book a flight outside of these times or to/from another UK airport, we can look at sending a staff member in a taxi to collect or drop off your child, but it will cost more than the Shared Transfer Service. Quotes are available upon request.
If you book a train or flight outside of these times or from another London airport, please contact your Admissions Manager for a private taxi quote. Please note this will cost more than our Shared Transfer Service from Heathrow, Kings Cross St. Pancras (& Gatwick for Earlscliffe students)
Flights must be booked on the arrival and departure dates so that all students can arrive and depart the course at the correct times.
Although there is a lot of information for students to absorb and plenty of opportunities for students to test themselves, our compassionate teachers can modify the level of difficulty according to the students’ comfort with English and ability to absorb new information. At SBC we do all we can to keep students on task and to provide a supportive environment.
A minimum level of B1 is advised in order to participate effectively in Medicine at Cambridge College.
Every student receives a certificate of completion during the graduation ceremony which we organise at the conclusion of the two-week course.
Students are provided with a great range of SBC materials made by our very own academic team.
Although students needn’t bring notebooks or folders to class because they are provided, students are urged to bring their own stationery.
Although there is no preparatory reading for this course, it would be useful for students to review what they have learned if they are lacking in confidence.
To become a doctor in The UK students need to have at least five GCSEs (or equivalent) grades 9-7 (A* or A) including English, Maths and Sciences. Three A-Levels (or equivalent, for example, the International Baccalaureate IB) including Chemistry and Biology are also required.
It can take up to 16 years to train to become a doctor before qualifying, according to the NHS and General Medical Council. It usually takes five years for your medical degree or six years if you want to study a subject such as the History of Medicine as part of an intercalated year. Two years are then required for your post-graduate general medical training foundation programme, and then a further three years of specialist training for a GP or between five to eight years for other specialities.
It was an excellent choice sending our daughter to Cambridge this summer. High-quality stay in an international environment with first-class course and entertainment offer. Congratulations to the SBC team!
