The Medicine and Surgery programme at Birmingham offers you the first-class opportunity to develop the practical, theoretical and communication skills needed to become a safe and effective practitioner. Right from the start, you’ll experience the practice of healthcare in the community with a fortnightly attachment to a general practice, allowing you to see how your studies translate into clinical practice. Based in one of the largest healthcare regions in the UK, with a diverse population of over 5 million, your opportunities for contact with a wide range of patients and a variety of health conditions are exceptional.

We will consider, normally, those applicants who have completed a life science degree at the time of application. We will rank applicants according to the quality of their degree result, giving preference to those with a 1st class mark, but we expect also to consider those who have achieved a result at the upper end of the 2:1 range. Secondary school qualifications are used to discriminate between applicants. In particular, we expect very good results in Science, English and Mathematics. As a guide our A level threshold requirements are BBB, though these grades may be raised through competition. A sound knowledge base in Chemistry is essential, either from A levels or other pre-university examinations, or from the content of the degree programme. Where the highest qualification in English or Maths is at GCSE, grade A is normally required.
Additional entry requirements
