Course summary

Open to graduates from a wide range of science and non-science backgrounds, our graduate entry programme offers a fast-track route which condenses the first stage of a conventional medical degree, so you achieve the qualification in four rather than five years. Clinically focused and patient-centered, it will equip you with essential knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to practice medicine competently and professionally. Your hands-on learning starts with practical classes in our pathology labs, anatomy and dissection rooms, alongside GP and community visits. Over the course of your studies you’ll participate in a comprehensive series of clinical placements in medicine, surgery, general practice, senior health, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, psychiatry and diagnostics such as radiology, as well as other specialties. On successful completion, you’ll be granted the primary medical qualification – Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) – eligible to register with the General Medical Council (GMC) and begin its Foundation Programme.
