Scholarships for Widening Participation Students

Livesey Scholarships – offered to two students who successfully complete the Pathways to Medicine Programme

The Pathways to Medicine programme has been developed for students from the North West of England who are from backgrounds that are under-represented at universities. It provides advice, skills and support to strengthen your application to medicine and related professional healthcare courses.

The scholarships will cover all tuition fees for the duration of the five-year course.

Through all these scholarships, the University and Trusts aim:
  • To support local, disadvantaged students in their application to medicine.
  • To support those whose circumstances mean they are unlikely to study medicine despite being academically capable.
  • To attract local doctors to NHS employment in the region.

How to apply

You should apply for MBBS via the UCAS system. No additional scholarship application is required.

As part of the awarding of each scholarship, all applicants will be invited to complete a widening participation form. Each applicant who is shortlisted for interview will take part in the same competitive selection process outlined in these documents. In the awarding of the MBBS scholarships preference will be given to successful applications from a widening participation background. The final offer of an MBBS scholarship is based on ranking after interview and additional weighting.
