Course summary

This four-year accelerated medicine programme is designed for graduates of any discipline who wish to train as a doctor and others whose prior professional experience qualifies them for entry.

Course overview

Our accelerated medicine and surgery programme enables you to complete the syllabus of years 1 and 2 of our five-year programme in one extended academic year (45 weeks).

Our programme uses a modern and innovative integrated case-led teaching approach, and you'll be taught in a vibrant learning environment.

This course will prepare you to work as a doctor anywhere in the world, in both the clinical and academic arena.

Professional accreditation

This programme is professionally accredited by the General Medical Council (GMC).

Study abroad

At the end of Year 3 you undertake an eight-week elective placement. This gives you the opportunity to study medicine, either at home or abroad and gain hands-on experience of a different healthcare system.

Your future

After completing your University programme, you're currently eligible to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) with a licence to practise, subject to demonstrating to the GMC that your fitness to practise is not impaired. However, the GMC are currently reviewing legislation, and you should be aware this may be different in the future.

Careers support

We provide specialist careers advice from undergraduate level through to foundation training, to help you move confidently from student to doctor.

Our award-winning Careers Service is one of the largest and best in the country, and we have strong links with employers. We provide an extensive range of opportunities to all students through our ncl+ initiative.
