A doctor engages in discussion with colleagues.Our five-year MBChB Medicine undergraduate programme focuses on developing future doctors who have patient safety at the core of their practice and who are responsive to the diverse and complex needs of individuals and populations. The course leads to a Primary Medical Qualification, entitling student doctors to provisionally register with the General Medical Council.

Alongside this five-year course, the University is offering MBChB Medicine with Foundation Year. This six-year programme is aimed at candidates from non-traditional and under-represented groups across the North West of England. Upon achievement of the required pass mark for the Foundation Year, you will be eligible to progress onto the five-year MBChB Medicine degree.
