The academic courses are taught and assessed in English by academic staff from the UK and China, integrating an English Language course within the first year of each five-year degree. 

Clinical aspects of the curriculum will be taught and assessed in Chinese and English, within an appropriate Chinese Healthcare Environment. 

The programme will be delivered predominantly at Chongqing Medical University, taught collaboratively by both UoL ‘flying faculty’ from the College of Life Sciences and CQMU staff. In the fourth year, students will have the opportunity to study for a year in the UK at the University of Leicester or can opt to remain at CQMU. 

The UoL undergraduate programme will provide students with the opportunity to study medical sciences alongside gaining a foundation in traditional laboratory and research skills. In addition to generic transferrable skills, and a strong foundation in the basic medical sciences, students will also complete foundation laboratory and research skills and develop these in year four by the completion of a group analytical research project. The CQMU Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Medicine adds direct clinical components to the dual award including education in clinical skills, diagnostic reasoning, clinical management and direct patient contact, in the appropriate Chinese health care environment, such that students will be enabled to successfully undertake the Chinese Medical Licensing Examination allowing them to practice medicine in China after graduation.
