Medicine (Nottingham and Derby pathway) degree offered at University of Nottingham welcome international applicants. Your application will be processed and assessed separately but using the same procedures as home and EU applications. All international applicants will be expected to attend for interview in the UK.
A major feature of the third year is the supervised research project in an area that you find interesting. Past students have covered diverse topics such as brains and behaviour, drug action, medical education, medicine, surgery, and psychiatry. This project will lead to the award of BMedSci.
The Early Professional Development Module is taught throughout years one and two and includes: early clinical placements in primary and secondary care; clinical skills training; communication skills; professionalism; ethics and wellbeing and safe practice principles. On successful completion, you will progress to year three and spend the first half of the year completing a BMedSci research project of your choice, then move on to the clinical phases of the course.
At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) 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 that need consideration. After this time period your provisional registration will normally expire.
