  • The teaching is inspired by our world-leading research and comes from academics who are respected leaders in the field. The programme will mainly be taught by academics on our London MBBS degree, while the remaining areas of the curriculum will be taught in conjunction with London and local academics.
  • Problem-based learning (PBL) is a central element of the Barts medical curriculum. PBL is a student-centered pedagogy in which 8-10 students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem under the guidance of a tutor. Students learn thinking strategies, subject knowledge, communication and research skills.
  • Each year students undertake student selected components (SSCs) which involve working (under supervision) on a project in a particular area of interest.


  • The Careers Service provides specialist guidance and support for our medical students, both as they study and begin professional practice. The Service has a wealth of resources for you, from the date of your registration until you graduate.
  • In addition to the academic and personal support which you will receive within the School, there are many other support and advisory services available.
