Our courses

Medicine MBChB (A100)
In this degree, you will meet patients from the outset and learn from experts in world-class facilities, and find out what it takes to become a doctor working in the industry today. Our excellent facilities include anatomical dissection of human cadavers.

Medicine MBChB with Foundation Year (A199)
Medicine degrees aren’t easy to get into. But this doesn’t mean becoming a doctor is out of the question. If it looks like you won’t meet the entry requirements to study medicine at Leicester, this Foundation Year degree is your path to making it happen.

Intercalated degrees
Whether you’re studying at Leicester Medical School or another institution, an iBSc or iMSc will give you a professional advantage once you graduate from your medical degree.
