Admissions information

We are committed to providing our student doctors with the essential knowledge, skills and values required for a confident and successful medical career.

Medicine and Surgery MBChB A100 is a 5 year course. Term usually starts in late September and accepted applicants must be 18 years old by the 1st October in the year of entry to the programme.

Successful applicants to the School of Medicine come from a wide range of backgrounds, but all demonstrate the potential for a thoughtful, caring and compassionate approach to medical practice, and for the motivation and academic excellence to benefit from, and contribute to, the School. The School supports a number of initiatives aimed at widening participation to our programmes including Merseyside Young Medics and Destination Medicine.  Further details can be found here.

The Medical Schools Council has published a number of resources to support applications to medical school. These can be accessed here. The admissions team advises applicants, at a minimum, to read the statement on the core values and attributes needed to study medicine and the guidance on gaining relevant work experience to study medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic.
