Three routes into Medicine

Our Medicine course is one of the most popular in the country, offering innovative teaching and early interaction with patients.
 

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.

 
A100: 5-year undergraduate entry medicine

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.
