UCLan Bachelor of Medicine

UCLan Bachelor of Medicine


Medicine courses are notoriously difficult to gain entry to, even more so unfortunately, if you are an international student.

However, University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)​ offer a great course EXCLUSIVELY for international students: the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.

The UCLan Medicine degree offers an innovative approach to medical education for self-funded and sponsored international students (non UK/EU), training them to become professional, compassionate doctors.

Delivered in the newest medical school in the UK, you will benefit from a state-of-the-art curriculum; designed with local patients. 

The atmosphere promises to be warm, supportive and with a multi-cultural learning environment, where every student is treated as an individual.

You’ll enjoy early patient contact from Year 1 and follow ‘your’ patients on clinical placements in Years 3 to 5. The programme is delivered by expert staff in the University and our associate NHS education providers. Our course has been closely aligned to the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) curriculum structure in order to help those students who wish to undertake USMLE.

This programme is for international students only. 

The course is 5 years long, and offers supervised placements in Year 3 & 4 at a local hospital.

Applications are being accepted for 2016. For full entry requirements, and the application process (including interviews) please see the information sheet available here:
