I will be starting my medical degree at a UK university soon and will hopefully intercalate. I am looking maybe to enrol on an MB PhD programme at a university after intercalating. On the Cambridge website it says the following:
"If you wish to apply for the MB/PhD progamme you must first apply to be accepted on the Clinical Course."
"Admission to the Cambridge Clinical Course is open, subject to the provisions of Ordinances, to all students who are registered for the degree of MB/BChir (or equivalent) at a UK University (and who therefore have been allocated a HEFC-funded quota place for Medicine), who are at the point of completion of their pre-clinical studies, and who have obtained an honours degree as part of their pre-clinical studies.
Eligible students may request an application form by writing directly to the Clinical Dean, please include your e-mail address in the letter as applications are sent by e-mail and they are available from October (Contact Page). The permission of the Dean of their School, or duly appointed deputy will be required."
Now the question is, I thought you couldn't transfer to the Cambridge clinical course even if you want to do a PhD, but the website says something else.
Can someone who knows about this clarify please?
