Partnering with the University of Birmingham Medical school, this undergraduate programme will provide a new pathway into medicine for students from all socio-economic backgrounds. This degree will focus on the scientific principles underpinning clinical and healthcare practice, combined with a strong element of workplace-based learning.
The course will have a lower entry tariff than traditional undergraduate medicine and foundation degree courses, and provide a direct entry route for high achieving students that additionally demonstrate the appropriate personal and professional qualities on to the Birmingham MBChB course (at Year 3).
