Selected entry requirements

Academic entry qualification overview

The course is open to medical or science graduates and intercalating medical students. Normally a BSc (1st or 2:1) or MBChB or equivalent is expected from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject.

Overseas students require a high class honours degree or equivalent in a biomedical subject from a high-ranking university.

For MBChB students, the minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1-4 of the undergraduate medical programme with normally no failure at any examination, and research motivation. Applicants with other professional (including midwifery), or research-related, experience will be considered.
