There are three routes at Nottingham by which medical students graduate as doctors – the five- and six-year undergraduate courses (A100 and A108) and the graduate entry four-year course (A101).
On all three courses the educational objectives are the same, namely to acquire the knowledge, skills and behaviour to allow the graduate to practise as a new doctor on the foundation training programme with the Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) degrees. In addition, all students on the five- and six-year courses obtain a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMedSci) degree.
Designed for school leavers, you will first take a three-year Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) course. After successful completion, you will undergo a further two years of foundation doctor training.
Designed to widen participation, this course is for students who have not been to university previously. You will begin with a foundation year and then follow the same structure as the A100 five year course.
A 4-year fast-track course designed specifically for graduates of any discipline. It is delivered in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and based at a purpose-built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site.
(The BMedSci degree is a key part of the undergraduate medical course at the University of Nottingham and provides all our students with a strong scientific grounding for moving onto the clinical phases of the course.The BMedSci also develops critical thinking so that you should be well prepared for the challenges of clinical work in your future medical career.)
