This five-year programme enables you to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council. With a focus on developing future doctors who have patient safety, reflection and professionalism at the core of their practice, the MBChB involves early and extensive clinical placements with a focus on community and mental health care settings, as well as exposure to medicine, surgery and a range of hospital specialities. Theory and practice are integrated through a combination of case studies and team-based learning alongside extensive clinical skills and simulation training. Equipped with medical leadership skills, resilience and fully prepared for practice, you will graduate as a doctor ready to make a major contribution to the healthcare services of today and tomorrow. It is anticipated that the first intake to this course will be for September 2020 entry. However this is subject to GMC approval. Please see our website for further details.

GCSE Double Science Awards, at Grades 6-6 or B-B or above, will also be accepted in lieu of separate GCSEs in Biology and Chemistry.

All A Level qualifications, or accepted equivalents, must have been obtained within the two years prior to application. Applicants will be required to take the UCAT Medical Admissions Test prior to application. UCAT scores and Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) form part of the selection process. UCAT scores can only be used to support an application in the year in which they were achieved. If you meet a specific set of widening participation criteria and grades, you may be able to join a six-year integrated version of this programme, MBChB Medicine with Foundation Year, where you will complete a Foundation Year before progressing onto the MBChB Medicine degree. Alternatively, if you have already completed a degree, MBChB applications will be considered from graduates with a 2:1 or above who have studied a science related programme, including Psychology, which has been awarded in the two years prior to application. If you graduated prior to this but have undertaken postgraduate study in the past two years, you are also encouraged to apply. Graduates must have grades ABB at A Level which must include Biology and Chemistry, at least one of which must be at Grade A or above with the other at minimum Grade B, as well as one other subject. A Levels in General Studies, Critical Reasoning, Citizenship and Key Skills will not be accepted. Graduate applicants must also meet the GCSE requirements outlined in the standard entry criteria above. There is no graduate entry point onto the MBChB. Graduates will therefore be required to undertake the full programme. We will also consider applications from students who are in the early stages of another non-medical degree who wish to withdraw and/or have not completed a previous non-medical degree, as long as our standard MBChB entry criteria are met. No recognition of prior learning (RPL) will be considered on this basis. We will not accept applications from students who wish to transfer from other medical programmes or who have previously started a medical degree but failed to progress on this.
