The majority of our MBBS graduates choose to remain in the south London area, and to complete their two-year Foundation Programme at one of our affiliated healthcare trusts.

At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MBBS degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, subject only to its acceptance that there are no fitness to practise concerns.
