Course summary

The Medical Sciences course is designed primarily for students who want to become medical doctors. It is part of the graduate entry feeder scheme to medicine at Cardiff University (A101) and our graduates are also able to progress to postgraduate medicine at other universities. The teaching of all subject areas, which range from anatomy and physiology to clinical skills and health policy, is reinforced by applying theoretical knowledge to clinical scenarios. Throughout the programme, you will gain valuable, hands-on clinical training and research experience.Every year, there are ten places available on the A101 programme for suitably qualified graduates of this course. For details, please refer to the published admissions policy for A101 at Cardiff University.As well as being a strong scientific qualification, a key feature of the Medical Sciences degree is the application of scientific knowledge to clinical scenarios using clinical simulation. You will gain experience from intensive work placements in local NHS facilities. These provide first-hand experience of medicine and healthcare in a range of departments and disciplines.From studying topics as diverse as tropical medicine, clinical practice or biological anthropology, to potentially being selected to take part in human dissection, you will gain robust scientific knowledge and skills during this course. When you graduate, you'll be able to decide which area of healthcare is suitable for you and be in a very strong position for an application to postgraduate medicine. Many of our graduates progress to medicine and most now work in the healthcare sector.The Medical Sciences degree is based on our Glyntaff campus. Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
