Candidates are selected from the students admitted to the MBChB undergraduate course of The University of Manchester. The minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1 to 3 / 4 of the undergraduate medical programme. For University of St Andrews students, this includes their 3 year degree programme and the following one or two years spent in Manchester (years 3 and 4 of the Manchester programme).
We also accept intercalating dental students from the University of Manchester, students from other UK Universities including home medical and dental graduates and international medical graduates who can demonstrate relevant experience and commitment to biomedical research.
International students must have an equivalent classification and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information.

It is recognised by the Research Councils, universities and employers that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new medical graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career. The MRes in Medical Sciences has been specifically designed to bridge this gap.
The purpose of the MRes is to provide a master's level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research.
Students interrupt their clinical training after Year 3 or 4 to undertake the programme.
Applications are also welcome from other eligible candidates.
This programme has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2016, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): £9,500
International students (per annum): £21,500
The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.
Self funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1,000 towards their tuition fees or provide a sponsor letter (which we must first confirm), before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.
