Undergraduate

The A101 medical programme has been developed specifically for students who are expecting to achieve at least a good 2:1 Honours degree in a Biological, Biomedical or Health Science subject.
Other additional subject and grade requirements exist. There is also a guaranteed interview scheme for applicants on the Liverpool BSc Honours programmes and pathways in the School of Life Sciences and a shortened three-year route for dentists wishing to pursue a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The University of Liverpool requires a GAMSAT result as part of the entry requirements for graduates applying to medical programmes. Further details of GAMSAT can be found here: www.gamsat.acer.edu.au/gamsat-uk. The only exception to this is for dentists applying to the oral-maxillofacial route.
