- Entry requirements
We require an honours degree (Upper Second minimum) or overseas equivalent in:
- biomedical sciences
- other biological subjects that contain elements of biochemistry and/or physiology.
We accept chemistry graduates, but you need to have studied significant elements of biochemistry and/or physiology during your undergraduate degree.
Flexibility on entry requirements will be considered for candidates with proven appropriate professional experience. Under these circumstances, candidates will be considered on an individual basis and may be required to enrol initially on the PGCert track.
This course is also available for intercalating medical students, both from the University of Manchester and other UK universities, upon completion of their third year. For St Andrews students studying at Manchester, this includes the three-year course plus the following one or two years spent in Manchester. Intercalating medical students need to have passed all assessments at first attempt (if they are third year) or have no fails in third year if they are fourth year.

You can apply for this course by completing the online form. See the Advice to applicants section for details of the supporting documents that we require.
We recommend that you apply as early as possible; we accept applications on a rolling basis up until two weeks before the start of each unit. Late applications may be considered. We reserve the right to close applications earlier if the course is full.
