Academic entry qualification overview
We require a First or Upper Second class degree in a relevant biomedical/biosciences subject, or an equivalent overseas qualification.
Non-standard applicants for the course will be considered on an individual basis.
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, this includes the three-year course, plus the following one or two years spent in Manchester.
International applicants from non-majority English speaking countries must demonstrate English proficiency through a secure and approved testing system.
We ask for English language proof if you are from non-majority English speaking countries (a list of majority English speaking countries, as defined by the UK Home Office, can be found on the GOV.UK website ).
Specifically, we require a minimum of:
- IELTS : 6.5 overall with 6.0 in all components
- TOEFL: 90 internet-based (with 20 in all components)
We may also accept evidence of a confirmed place on a University Pre-sessional English language course, if your current IELTS scores are:
- Minimum 6.0 overall (with 5.5 in each component) plus enrolment and attendance on the 6-week Pre-sessional course (PS6).
- Minimum 5.5 overall (with 5.5 in each component) plus enrolment and attendance on the 10-week Pre-sessional course (PS10).
Please note, we must approve this before you apply for the English course.
