Applying to Medicine

At Birmingham Medical School we offer two MBChB Medicine and Surgery courses. The five-year MBChB Medicine and Surgery course is the standard undergraduate entry into Medicine. The four-year MBChB Graduate Entry Medicine course is available for graduates with a first degree in a life science subject. Applying to study Medicine is extremely competitive and making an application can be quite daunting. Here we aim to make the process a little bit more digestible for you.
