Arcadia - KCL Program Banner

An outstanding and highly competitive pre-medical program

King's College London Health and Society is a unique opportunity in the UK to have a clinical placement—examples include primary care practices, walk-in centers, and sexual health centers. Course topics may focus on national health systems and medical practice, as well as medicinal ethics, anthropology, and humanities. If you’re pursuing a career in medicine and have a strong academic background in biology, this could be a good option for you.
  • Your program will consist of a clinical placement, a cornerstone course, and three additional classes. You’ll shadow clinicians and other health practitioners, attend lectures from leading academics, and evaluate healthcare-related literature.
  • Located on the South Bank of the Thames at Guy’s Campus—home to the School of Biomedical and Health Sciences, the Dental Institute, and the School of Medicine—this is a fashionable area near the Borough Market, Southwark Cathedral, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
  • You should select the Health & Society program option when applying if you think this is the right fit for you — note the early deadline!
  • This is a competitive program with a limited number of spaces. Applicants are evaluated as a gathered field. Your Program Advisor can discuss what to expect during the application process.
  • Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses through Arcadia's planned Excursions and Activities.
