What are the criteria for studying a course in health and medicine? Depending on the university you are applying to, you may be asked to take an admission test that is specific to medical applicants. You may also want to take gradready courses to improve your chance to pass the admission test.
So, if you passed the test, what specific majors can you study?
To become a counsellor, you can study for a counselling degree at the undergraduate and/or postgraduate level. However, while taking this course, you may come across related terms such as psychotherapy or therapy. Especially at the postgraduate level, there are a variety of specialized study programs that can be studied to further develop your interests. For example, you may have a particular desire to focus on cognitive behavioural therapy, which you can choose to focus on at the masters level. At the undergraduate level, a counselling course will usually take 3 years to complete whereas a postgraduate course can last only 1-2 years.
If you want to become a dentist, you must be prepared to carry out a big commitment. Most dentistry majors will take 5 years to complete with an additional 1-2 years as a “co-ass”. In short, dentistry involves taking care of patients and their teeth, preventing oral and dental problems. To be accepted into a dentistry course, you will need an A-level (or equivalent) AAA / ABB score depending on university requirements. In this job, you need to be a good communicator, have excellent attention to detail and interpersonal skills.
As one of the most popular majors, medicine is also fiercely competitive. Its popularity could be due to job prospects and the high demand for doctors around the world. Another reason to study medicine may be that you have a desire to help other people and provide care. To be accepted into a course at a medical university, you need the highest score (usually AAA) at A-level or equivalent. Universities will usually seek applicants who have achieved this score in science-related subjects such as biology, mathematics, chemistry or physics.
