What degree is usually require prior to applying for graduate medicine in the UK ? Does it have to be science based ? Could you get in if you have studied sports science or something to do with the body that involves sports ? Do university's also accept people with a psychology degree ? I'm only asking this as it truly is my ambition to become a doctor and Al I want to do is save life's. I also heard Newcastle university is good for postgraduate medicine, what degrees are accepted to do postgraduate medicine ?

Literally all of these questions can be answered with Google.

You need a medical degree to do postgraduate training in medicine. There is no other way of doing postgraduate medicine.

But Newcastle university and a few more state that they accept any degree as long as it's a second class honours or higher. Could a medical degree include something like sports science or a social science ?

Postgraduate medicine is what happens after you have graduated with a medical degree.
You are concerned with graduate entry medicine. They are two very different things.

As Democracy has said use Google, these are really basic questions.

Yes, some universities will accept grads with an arts degree.

My degree was in English Literature and Language. I chose a 5-year course in the end, but was offered interviews for the 4-year courses at Newcastle and KCL.

You'll need some work experience.

What's made you think about Medicine? Do you have any work experience under your belt already? If not, that would seem a sensible place to start, since not only will you need work experience should you choose to apply, but it'll also give you a slightly better idea about whether it's the right path for you or not. Hope that helps.

I had some previous work experience in a care home working with the elderly which I enjoyed to a great extend but wouldn't want to make a career out of it as it true,y is heartbreaking watching old people die and also watching their lives with dimension and Alzheimer's. I've all ways held a true passion for medicine as I find it incredibly interstings, I also really want o help people and save life's as I feel as if it's my passion in life, that's what I want to do and if that means waiting until I'm 21 to star graduate medicine then so it is.
