Mature age medical students
In nearly every class I teach here at GradReady I hear of students being ashamed or frightened at the prospect of starting a medical degree at a more mature age than what those going straight from high school would be. Unfortunately, for most of us, there comes a time when you have to hang up the baggy rave pants and accompanying fluro sunglasses that you wear to your favourite dark and questionable club on a Saturday night. Other responsibilities start popping up in life, such as full-time employment, family, more serious relationships, or you really start enjoying TV shows on weekend nights. Getting into medical school, however, is a very mature decision, and often demands a very mature person to make it. Our more mature peers, many of whom have already had another life in a profession, perhaps with a family, subsequently come into medicine with a huge range of life experiences.

Not everyone's route to medical school is the same. While many medical students start their degrees straight from school or college, others choose to become a doctor later in life or through another pathway. If you are a student who is studying for or already has another degree, a mature student or even someone who has no qualifications at all, there are a number of routes into medical school you can access. Graduate candidates for medicine normally need a first or upper second class honours degree.
