University of Liverpool has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This programme provides a broad-based education in life sciences related to medicine, and offers great flexibility of module choice so that you can follow your own particular interests. This programme is particularly suitable if you are intending to apply for graduate entry into medical or dental schools, but it also prepares you for a wide range of other careers including scientific research and the pharmaceutical industry. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
