The Academic Prep Course (APC) is an intensive pre-medical program that prepares students for medical school. The entire program lasts one semester (15-weeks) and covers three courses: Human Anatomy and Physiology, Molecular Cell Biology and Medical Terminology. In addition, students will take an Education Enhancement Department (EED) class from AUA, that will teach valuable study skills such as note taking, listening in a classroom setting, and time management. They will also get the opportunity to sit in on a few first semester AUA classes including BLS and a few small group sessions.

To pass the course, students would be required to get at least an average of 70% in their classes. Everyone who passes this program will get automatic acceptance into American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine. Once admitted to AUA, qualified students may apply for federal student loans.


Tuition for this program is $5,000. Students will receive a 50% refund if they do not successfully complete the course. Housing cost will be subsidized.


Next course will start September 3, 2018 and end December 7, 2018. To apply, email mentioning your interest. An admissions advisor will contact you to guide you through the process.
