Hi there!

Unfortunately they don't allow any transfers onto their Medicine course. However, we have a list of the universities with Biomedical Science to Medicine transfer schemes here.

Hope this helps!

From what I heard there is such a scheme, just that it's not widely published / established. However it would be best to check with the Faculty for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

You apply through the university (not through UCAS) but there are usually 10-20 places per year. You have to do an online application (similar to personal statement, but longer) and then if successful youre invited to an interview (ours is MMI). they say you find out a few weeks after the interview if you were successful. You transfer into med the following year but you start at year 1 again.
To be eligable you need 60% average in both jan and summer exams, they like you to do volunteer work (get some in first year whilst you have time).

Hi there, i actually ended up at leicester uni studying medicine! Sorry i know this is probably too late.
They offer 8-10 places roughly for year for transfers, and you apply and interview internally
I much prefer the course at leicetser tho, as manchester is PBL and i wanted a slightly more structured approach, leicetser has a great balance between lectures, group work (case-based studying), and dissection etc.

Hi there,

I'm glad to know you could do it. I'm starting my degree this year, Biomedical Science and my intention is change to medicine in an university which allows it. Apart from the fact that I hope to get the most high grades so my chances improve. I'm also worried with another thing, do you believe even after finishing the 2 years of Biomedicine, is still possible to get the student finance for the whole medicine course, in case of acceptance ?
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience.
All the best

Hi,
I'm not too sure, i know that after 1 year they will, but i think for 2 you have to fund a year yourself (as they allow for 1 intercalation year so fund a 6 year degree). I'm sure that if you contact SFE they could probably explain more, and possibly help with your specific situation. I'm considering intercalating next year which would extended my degree, so I need to look into it too as NHS bursary covers your final year.
Sorry its not much help!

Hi,
I got AAA at a level, leicester like a good UKCAT too so try and get a decent score in that. The interview is MMI style which they score you on and combine it with your a levels and ukcat. There are a few people I know that transferred in leicester and it seems like there are a few opportunities
