All over the world, there is a great uniformity of medical science knowledge and practice, making it one of the most universal disciplines. Medicine is both practical and theoretical, which we aim to demonstrate to delegates who choose to take part in the Medicine Academy. It is challenging both academically and personally. Topics may include physical examination; medical English; medical and surgery specialties; patient history taking; studying medicine at a UK university; as well as issues in medical ethics such as organ donation, palliative care and hospice care, sexual minorities and health care.
Cambridge University is ranked among the best in the world for both its research and teaching in Medicine. The Medicine Academy will ensure that delegates are provided with transferable skills, developing professionalism, communication skills, time management, ability to work as part of a team and essential research skills.

Individual Airport Pick Up & Drop Off Service
On arrival in the UK, we can arrange for an individual private pick up from any major UK airport and transfer to either Oxford or Cambridge.
On arrival and departure days, we operate shuttle services between London Heathrow Airport and Oxford or Cambridge. The shuttle service is by private coach travelling with student groups attending our university-level and high-school programmes. The shuttle drops delegates off at their accommodation. On arrival days, we request that delegates’ flights land before 6pm in order to board the final shuttle bus. Similarly, on departure days, we request that delegates’ flights depart after 2pm. The shuttle service does not include an unaccompanied minor service. If the airline you are travelling with requires this, please speak to a customer service representative at least 2 weeks prior to travel to discuss your travel arrangements. Our Delegate Advisors (in CBL International, orange t-shirts) are present in the arrivals area of major terminals in London Heathrow Airport throughout the arrival day greeting our delegates and ensuring that the shuttle service does not leave until we have made contact with all those who have pre-booked this service. Please note there may be some wait time on arrival at the airport for the shuttle service, and for arrival after 6pm, there may be no shuttle available. This service is only available to and from London Heathrow Airport. The cost of this service is 50GBP for a single journey.
