There has been a Medical School at the University of Leicester, teaching the MBChB Medical Degree for more than 40 years. Our experience ensures an excellent standard of teaching and a supportive community and our excellent modern facilities provide a state-of-the art learning environment.
We have revised our curriculum to make it even more patient-focussed. Our course is designed to be clinically relevant throughout and integrates your learning, enabling you to acquire the medical knowledge and professional competencies that are essential to practise medicine effectively. You will have hands-on experience , working with real patients from the beginning.
Throughout the course you will learn from expert academics and medical practitioners working at the sharp end of the NHS. Their teaching is directly influenced by their expertise in such diverse fields as heart disease, cancer and genetics – some of the areas where Leicester's reputation is truly global.
Our new curriculum is designed to prepare future doctors to meet the challenges of healthcare in the 21st Century. When you graduate you will take forward the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that are required to practise medicine effectively and successfully, and will be prepared for the inevitable changes in practice that will occur in the future.
As part of your degree, you can take an Intercalated BSc (iBSc) as a one year course after the second or third year of your Medical Degree. Alternatively you can take an Intercalated MSc (iMSc) in Medical Research after your third year. Either of these will extend your overall degree to six years.
As part of your medical course, you can apply to take an extra year and intercalate to take an additional degree. You can choose our iBSc in Biomedical Sciences, or iBSc in Psychology, which focuses on Human Behaviour. An iBSc can be taken after completing two years of medical school, or at a later stage. Alternatively you can take an Intercalated MSc (iMSc), for example our iMSc in Medical Research, after either your third or fourth year. Studying an intercalated degree outside Leicester is also permitted.
