Start your journey to become a doctor and gain the skills you need for a successful career in medicine. Developed in partnership with the University of Lincoln, the Lincoln Medical School course allows you to graduate with two degrees from the University of Nottingham, a BMedSci and a BMBS. Although you'll be based in one of the UK's newest medical schools, you'll be taught by experienced tutors with an excellent reputation for teaching and research. At the Lincoln Medical School, you'll gain the clinical knowledge and skills, confidence and problem-solving skills you need for a career in medicine. Two degrees in one You'll undertake a supervised research project in your third year, leading to the award of an integrated Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMedSci) without needing to study for an extra year. You'll then continue into your final years, putting your learning into practice on placements at hospitals and GP surgeries to earn your BMBS. Two university experiences in one Enjoy the University of Lincoln student experience, while also graduating with globally recognised qualifications from the University of Nottingham. Case-based learning A case-based learning course which makes use of real patient scenarios and focuses you on their key clinical points. Broad range of expertise You'll be able to explore a range of research areas as part of your studies, working alongside leaders in diabetes, medical imaging and antibiotic resistance.
During this course, you'll spend your early years (years one to three) developing an understanding of the scientific and professional basics of medicine. You'll be taught subjects based on clinically relevant topics and patient examples. Areas of study will include, but are not limited to: respiratory, cardiovascular, cancer, musculoskeletal systems, gastrointestinal medicine, renal, endocrine, reproduction, and Central Nervous System. From year one, topics studied in lectures, seminars, clinical skills, and anatomy suites are supplemented by patient interactions in hospitals or primary care settings. This part culminates in a research project and will see you graduate with a BMedSci degree after year three.. Following your project, you'll move into the final years and begin the clinical phase. Your final two years is where you’ll undertake a series of immersive placements at hospitals and GP surgeries. You’ll cover a range of specialities and experience medicine in different care settings, giving you a broad understanding and experience of how differently the NHS functions and cares for patients. This part will see you graduate with a BMBS, enabling you to work as a doctor on the UK Foundation Programme after you graduate.

- Year 1
Degree offer You are also able to apply for this course if you already have a degree. You will need a 2:1 degree in any subject plus the A level requirements and a minimum of GCSE level 4 (C) in maths and English language You may also consider applying for our Graduate Entry Medicine course as this is specifically aimed at graduates of other disciplines. Candidates may apply for medicine during any year of their existing degree studies – you do not need to withdraw. You may continue with your studies while awaiting your new Medicine application outcome. Any exams taken while on the degree will not be taken into consideration. A-levels and GCSE’s must therefore meet the requirements as outlined in our standard requirements. Where a candidate is reliant on their degree for academic entry purposes, they may apply for our course through UCAS at the beginning of their final year with their degree or integrated masters result pending. In these cases, offers to study Medicine will be conditional on candidates achieving the necessary academic requirements. The degree must be an honours degree and the award must be conferred to us by providing a final transcript no later than 20 July each year. Degrees must have been completed in the natural length intended for your qualification - for example 3 years for a bachelors (like a BSc) or 4 years for an undergraduate masters (like an MSci). If you are applying with an undergraduate (bachelors or undergraduate masters) degree, you may not need to meet the standard A level requirements. We will review this if you have achieved or are predicted to achieve a first class honours degree at undergraduate level in a relevant subject with enough biology and chemistry content. You will still, however, need to have achieved as least a 4 (C) in GCSE in both maths and English language. Any offers made without the A level requirements are conditional on you achieving a first in your primary degree before starting the course. For more information on which degrees are relevant, please contact the Student Recruitment Support Hub. Accelerated degrees resulting in the award of a BSc Hons (completed over two years rather than three) may be accepted in lieu of A levels where a 1st class has been achieved. We will review these applications on a case-by-case basis. GCSE maths and English language must still be achieved at a minimum of C grade. For information on whether your degree is accepted please contact the Student Recruitment Support Hub.

Additional entry requirements
Criminal records declaration (DBS/Disclosure Scotland)
We must be confident in your conduct, health and ability to be professional and interact safely with patients.

We must be confident in your conduct, health and ability to be professional and interact safely with patients. As part of your application you will be required to have an occupational health assessment and a disclosure and barring service (DBS) check. This usually takes place around May or June for offer holders. We are able to accept pre-existing DBS checks as long as they meet the enhanced criteria check and are registered on the Update Service. If we have any serious concerns we will not offer you a place, and reserve the right to revoke offers should serious concerns arise before starting the course.
You will be required to have an interview. This usually takes the form of Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI). For 2022 entry, interviews may be face to face or online using Microsoft Teams. We will provide more details as they become available. Interviews are offered to candidates based on scores as calculated by our selection process. The percentage threshold varies from year to year based on the number of applicants. If you meet the entry requirements for the course and have completed the Nottingham Pathways to Medicine Programme, the Nottingham Potential Summer School or the Nottingham Sutton Trust Summer School, you will be considered for the interview stage without having to go through the UCAT/GCSE scoring stage of our selection process. However you will still need to sit the UCAT and achieve Band 1 to 3 on the Situational Judgement Test. The fast track to interview is only applicable to those applying for their first degree.
Work Experience: Applicants are usually expected to complete regular work experience when applying for medicine. This can be: Volunteering in a care related setting Volunteering with disadvantaged groups Paid employment in a job working with the general public Please note, we are not expecting any work experience to have taken place or be ongoing after March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Your application for 2024 entry will not be negatively affected if you’ve been unable to complete any work experience you had planned. We will however be looking for knowledge of the profession and an understanding of the scope of the role and we may ask about this during your interview. If possible we'd advise that you speak to someone working in the NHS to ensure you are making an informed choice about your career in medicine. We expect you to demonstrate a commitment to caring for people and a realistic idea of what working as a doctor entails. Any students considering a gap year should use their time constructively either by working or further preparing yourself for a future career in medicine. Deferral requests must be received by the 1st May.
