UCLan’s Medicine (MBBS) programme offers an innovative approach to medical education. Taught in state-of the-art facilities, the course is currently undergoing General Medical Council quality assurance.
At UCLan’s School of Medicine we aim to develop students who are ready to practise medicine safely and compassionately. We provide a strong core of biomedical knowledge and clinical skills to prepare you for the demands of a rapidly changing global health environment. Clinical placements in UK NHS hospitals and clinics start in Year 1 and feature strongly throughout the programme.
You will be taught in small, diverse groups by expert, experienced staff, many of whom have clinical backgrounds. A high staff to student ratio means you’re fully supported during studies.
From 2018 the MBBS course started to offer limited places to UK students from the North West of England. Weighting will be given to UK Widening Participation students. UK applications from outside the North West will not be considered. For full details see the course page.
This limited number of UK places does not affect the number of International places and the MBBS course remains open to international applicants.
UCLan will hold, use and process personal information to assist it in answering enquiries. We will keep your information for 3 years.

“I really like the fact that all the teaching groups are small because it means all the professors actually get to know us and we get one to one attention. All the professors know our names and that isn’t something you expect to have at any other university.”
Shagoon Modi, India and Bangladesh
“The fact that we are a small group is really nice. We have direct interaction with our lecturers and we know our classmates well. This is a really interesting program where, from the beginning, students have patient interaction and learn clinical skills.”
Alexis Adam, Mauritius
“I want to have the best possible medical education. The course and personal attention you get is unique at UCLan. It’s geared towards international students.”
