For 2020 (2021) entry applicants to the A100 and A101 (including OMFS route) programmes will not have their personal statements or academic references routinely assessed as part of the decision to invite them to interview. The personal statement will be considered as part of the interview process.

Medicine and Surgery MBChB (Graduate Entry) is a 4 year course aimed at students with, or are expecting to achieve, a 2:1 honours degree or higher in a Biological, Biomedical or Health Science subject. Term usually starts in mid-August.

Taster Day Cancelled for 2020 | 29.04.20

The University of Liverpool is closely monitoring national and international developments in relation to COVID-19 and taking actions as appropriate. As a result, we have taken the decision to cancel or postpone all University led public events until the end of April 2020. Thereafter, events will remain under review.

Therefore, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Medicine Taster Day which was scheduled for the 29.04.20 as the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is our highest priority. 

While we realise that the cancellation of events will cause some inconvenience and disappointment, this temporary measure is aimed at ensuring that our response to the current situation remains responsible and informed by the latest public health advice and expertise.
