What about ' Deze koks kunnen geen goed advies aan de geneeskunde studenten geven' ?

That is correct. Only geneeskundestudenten is one word, in the preferred translation they switched the order, then it is two words: lit. students (in) medicine.

I don't know whether the course should accept it, that depends on how lenient they want to be, since your translation has the closer English sentence: These cooks cannot give good advice to the medical students.

I find more natural "geneeskunde studenten" than "studenten geneeskunde". Even thought it was a mistaken phrase.
