Which university for medicine? Watch
Could anyone on the forum reccomend a university for medicine and explain why?
- The teaching styles: universities like Manchester and Liverpool teach PBL whereas Oxbridge have a more traditional style of teaching based around lectures
- Intercalation- at some universities you would have to do an intercalated degree which might not suit you.
- Where you want to be: Some people prefer campus universities and some prefer city universities.
My advice to you is to visit as many unis as you can to get a better idea of where you want to study. It also gives you a good chance to speak to students studying at the uni and I to ask particular questions about the course.
You'll probably find when you come to apply that certain aspects of your application might not be best suited to specific universities, e.g some unis have specific UKCAT cut-offs
Good luck with your research anyway!

Next look at the course at the uni, some will be PBL focused like Glasgow and some will be traditional like Oxbridge but most will use a mix. Think about if you'd want to do an intercalation and possible subjects, for some uni's it will be mandatory, these tend to be more science focused courses however, at others they will be dependent on how well you've done in previous years and will be optional.
Finally look at the location and decide if you'd be ok with living there for the next 5+ years.
