University of Leicester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our 6 year Medicine with a Foundation Year course aims to widen access to Medicine for students who wish to study at the University of Leicester, but whose background makes it less likely that they will be able to gain the entry requirements for our standard 5 year MBChB. This course is only available for students who meet the widening access requirements designated on our School of Medicine website. There will be 35 places available. Up to 25 places are open for students who have been resident in the East Midlands while studying A-levels or BTEC. A further 10 places will be available for students applying from anywhere within the UK.
