Brighton and Sussex Medical School is pleased to open applications for the 2018/19 entry to the BrightMed programme.

This widening participation initiative aims to identify and support young people who have the potential to become tomorrow’s doctors. BrightMed will increase young peoples’ awareness of studying medicine and will endeavour to raise the aspirations of young people involved in the programme. 

The scheme primarily recruits students currently in Year 8, to begin in Year 9. However, we frequently receive requests for older students to join the programme. This is possible and so we certainly welcome their application however young people should be aware that offers will be made only if space permits.

Please note that not all applications will be successful as places are limited. Should interested young people not meet the required criteria, we will still welcome their application but places will be offered only if space permits.

As per 2017, we are asking all applicants to apply online via our web-based application form. The link for this is accessible via our website at: www.bsms.ac.uk/brightmed

The deadline for applications is Friday 13th July 2018 and responses will be provided by the mid-August 2018.
