Queen Mary University of London is proud to offer a five-year Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programme taught on the Mediterranean islands of Malta. The MBBS is taught by Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, a faculty of Queen Mary, a member of the Russell Group of leading research-led UK universities.

Our spiral curriculum is taught in a series of modules based on body systems which, in turn, encompass various scientific and medical themes. The curriculum is integrated, and problem- and systems-based, and promotes early patient contact and clinical skills. 

The Medicine programme at Queen Mary University of London is very similar to the MBBS London programme in terms of its content, method of delivery and selection criteria.

Teaching and Learning

Your tutors will support and encourage you to develop an independent attitude to learning, such as making decisions about how to tackle key subjects and researching and discussing them with fellow students.

This approach will prepare you for life as a qualified doctor, when you will take responsibility for keeping your knowledge up to date through continuing professional development.

The teaching methods employed will ensure that you can both understand the principles of medicine and apply your knowledge in the same way when treating a patient.

When compared with more traditional programmes, formal lectures play a small part in the MBBS Malta programme.
