Get a head start in Semester 1 2017 with Medview.

A Flying Start.

Each year a huge number of students apply for Medical School at Auckland University and only a small fraction of those applied get accepted.

This seems like a huge hurdle to overcome however, in reality having someone to show you the ropes will make this process so much easier and less stressful. We are here to help.

I'm interested!

Why take this course?

In second semester, there is only one core paper – MedSci 142. However, not only is it the most intense and in depth core paper you do in first year, it is also the most relevant to the medical field and so it’s definitely a paper that you want to do your best in! Many students struggle with the breadth and depth of content and keeping up the pace is difficult! Make sure this doesn’t happen to you. MedView’s Flying start course will get you well ahead in coursework before Semester 2 starts so you’ll walk into your lectures just for revision!
