Avicenna Diploma in Pre-Medical Studies (ADPS) is a well-structured and comprehensive program designed for those international students who have completed their high school studies outside the UK and wish to continue their further studies in a medically related field in British or other European universities.
ADPS will prepare students for successful entry to European universities. It also ensures that students learn to become independent, organized, disciplined and inquiring individuals when joining their future higher education centers.
ADPS is a complex program which offers strong support in general and academic English for those who did not study in English. It also offers medical science subjects which specifically are important in the first two years of medical studies. The subjects are taught in considerable depth with specific attention to medical relevance. ADPS students are encouraged to learn about scientific inquiries and research. Laboratory practice is part of the ADPS education.
Continuous assessment, mid-year and final examinations, essay, and research papers are part of the program and requirement for successful completion of ADPS.
ADPS essentially is a two-year program. Those who are fluent in English and have a stronger background in sciences or have graduated from an international school with IB or A-Level may complete the program in one year.
