Medicine courses are among the hardest and most competitive programs for an international student to join. With 32 medical schools in the UK to choose from, we offer specialist advice on which institution is right for you, ensuring your application stands out. On average 80% of our Medicine Service students are offered an interview at a UK medical school.

We then select suitable universities for you to apply to, taking into account the universities which accept the most international students and your profile. We help you build a strong personal statement and guide you through the medical school exam process which for the majority of UK Medical Schools will be the UCAT.

Returning with your UK Medical Degree

SI-UK works with Medical experts such as Ranika, our IMG Career Counsellor, assisting Medicine graduates going through the residency and licensing process in Canada. As part of the Medicine Service, our students will get the opportunity to learn more about the process of returning to Canada with a UK Medical degree. 

Upon returning with their degree Ranika will assist UK Medical School graduates with registrations and exams, all the way until the student receives their licence to practice. 


Graduating from the University of Toronto, Ranika Singh has had nearly 20 years of experience in both domestic and international healthcare recruitment. She developed her expertise over an eleven-year career at an Ontario provincial government agency, an innovative healthcare recruitment initiative designed to help local and international medical graduates navigate their pathway to success in Canada. 

Since 2020, Ranika has been the driving force behind IMG Career Counselling, a career consultancy business that is solely dedicated to supporting IMGs and their unique career challenges. Her services are designed to empower IMGs, helping them to develop their Medical Residency applications in Canada and the US. With a focus on their strengths and a strategic approach to addressing any weaknesses, Ranika provides proven strategies and specialized, targeted content, ensuring that IMGs feel confident and reassured in their career journey. 

In May 2022, Ranika's exceptional work was acknowledged when she was named a Top 100 finalist and a Recognition Award Nominee for IMG Career Counselling in a competition presented by Scotiabank Women Initiative, powered by GoDaddy Canada. Her influence extends beyond awards, as she has also been an active participant in a Canada-wide initiative with stakeholders including government and regulatory associations. This initiative was designed to propose recommendations to leverage IMGs to close healthcare labour market gaps in Canada. In 2023, her expertise was sought after by the CTV News Channel, where she participated in two live interviews on the critical health shortages in Canada, further showcasing her deep understanding of the industry.
