International Foundation Programme for Medicine and Dentistry

Our International Foundation Programme is a one-year course designed to prepare international students to study on our five-year MBChB Medicine (A106) and BDS Dentistry (A206) degrees.

The course is specifically provided to cater for you if your national qualifications do not make you eligible to apply directly to the Medicine or Dentistry courses.

The programme aims to supplement and develop your scientific knowledge and understanding, as well as providing a foundation in the language, communication and study skills required to succeed on a clinical degree course.  

Upon successful completion of the programme, and subject to successful application and interview for our clinical degree courses, you are then eligible to enter either the MBChB or BDS courses with a standard equivalent to conventional entry qualifications.
