The University of Liverpool, in collaboration with local FE partners, has developed a Year Zero foundation programme for Home/EU students that leads to access onto a variety of vocational Health Studies programmes:
- Veterinary Science
- Diagnostic Radiography
- Occupational Therapy
Students seeking entry to Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science will study at Carmel College, St Helens. Students seeking entry to Diagnostic Radiography, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Orthoptics, Physiotherapy or Radiotherapy will study at The Sixth Form College, Birkenhead.
Please note that application to this programme is through UCAS (see course codes below), which is specifically targeted at Home/EU mature and non-traditional students who typically have taken a break from studies.
When applying, you must ensure that you apply for one programme that you wish to progress on to. Multiple applications will be rejected and result in disappointment. We will also not consider applications from applicants who have multiple UCAS applications for a variety of programmes, as this does not demonstrate a clear commitment.
Watch the video below to hear students' experience of the Year Zero programme.
