Medicine University of Leicester

Undergraduate

There has been a Medical School at the University of Leicester for 40 years. Our experience ensures an excellent standard of teaching and a supportive community with our new facilities providing a state-of-the art learning environment. We have revised our curriculum to make it even more patient-focused. Our course is designed to be clinically relevant throughout and integrates your learning, enabling you to acquire the medical knowledge and professional competencies that are essential to practice medicine effectively. You will have hands-on experience – working with real patients from the beginning. We have a very well-equipped dissecting room, enabling all students to learn anatomy through cadaveric dissection.
