Hey everyone. I don't know if I'm in the right forum to be asking this, but what would the end result 'title' be if I studied Medicine BM6 Widening Participation*(BMBS) at university? Would it be doctor or something else? The course is 6 years long and I'm planning to do it in the near future (in about 2 years roughly). I do a L2 h&sc in college currently but want to take 1 year out of college and then go back.

Also, if I was to study Level 3 Access to Higher Education (Nursing and Healthcare professions) which is 1 year at college, would I be able to use this alongside my Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care? I want to do this after a year away from college - but my mum says I can only do the 1 year out from college and then the Access to HE if I have a job (which I'm hoping I can get the one I'm looking at once this Covid-19 business is over and I can have an interview. The interview got cancelled).

Thanks for reading my long post. The uni that I'm interested in hasn't been much help - they don't explain things very well in emails. I'm planning to go to one of the open days to hopefully get a bit more information. But it would be great if someone could help me out. Thanks!

Yes assuming that you have successfully completed the course and passed all your exams, you'll be eligible to apply for a Foundation Year 1 doctor post when you graduated from the BM6 course, just like graduates of BM4 / BM5 and other medical degrees.

BM4 is Graduate Entry Medicine (GEM) for those with a degree already. It's BM4 because it's 4 years in length

BM5 is standard undergraduate medicine, mostly for A-Level students. It's BM5 because it's 5 years in length.

BM6 is in effect Medicine with a Foundation Year, for people with the specific criteria. It's not open access. Guess why it's BM6! :lol:

Note: only Southampton uses this "BM" system. Most med schools call their GEM A101 and their standard med course A100. There are notable exceptions like Manchester calling their standard med course A106 or HYMS calling their Foundation Year course A101.
