Study Medicine in the UK

Overview

Studying medicine is so much more than getting a degree and becoming a doctor. It's about putting the patient first and being compassionate to others. It's a tough profession, but the thrill of being a doctor never leaves. Medicine is exciting, stimulating and intrinsically rewarding and it is with this in mind that we've developed a Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MB BS) programme to promote the team work and leadership skills necessary to become a successful doctor.

UClan's School of Medicine and Dentistry is based at its Preston campus in North West England. Working with the appropriate authorities in the UK, the course is designed to achieve the learning outcomes as laid down by the General Medical Council (GMC)*. As this exciting and stimulating course is only open to a small number of international students (35 students per year), they will study within a warm and supportive learning environment where they will be treated as individuals. They will get to know fellow students and staff who will work closely with them to ensure they achieve their goal. Successful graduates will be able to confidently and competently approach their first working day as a compassionate, qualified doctor anywhere in the world.

Why UCLan?

UCLan is one of the leading UK modern universities, with excellent facilities and advanced technological systems, which will benefit students along their educational journey. Importantly, the North West of England has a diverse population in a mixed rural and urban community with correspondingly varied health needs, making the medical training experience wide-ranging and interesting.

The University has evolved over the years to become a world-class institution, recognised with its inclusion in the most recent QS World Rankings �¢?? the first modern university in the UK to gain this status. World leading research underpins teaching and investment in cutting-edge facilities nurtures learning and provides realistic work environments to prepare our graduates for their career.

Preston is at the heart of North West England; a city with a rich heritage, unique festivals, first class leisure and sports facilities, Victorian parks and docklands. Less than an hour away from Manchester and Liverpool, Preston also has excellent travel links to Scotland and London.



*GMC STATUS

The GMC recognises bodies to award primary medical qualifications and plans to start to quality assure UCLan and its first undergraduate medicine programme. This is likely to take the form of a year by year review following the first cohort to graduation. Only during the final year of the programme will the GMC be able to approve UCLan and add it to its list of bodies that can award primary medical qualifications. There can be no guarantee that this will be the outcome of the review and UCLan has contingency arrangements in place so that students enrolled in the programme will be able to complete their studies.
