Our MB ChB programme is taught full time over four and a half years. The course is divided into two phases. Phase 1 is the initial two years taught both at the University of Buckingham and in local clinical environments. In Phase 1, students will acquire the foundations of clinical practice and learn critical skills and basic and applied sciences. Phase 2 takes two and a half years and is spent entirely in clinical placements at Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Bedford Hospital, St Andrewâs Healthcare in Northampton and other local healthcare providers. During Phase 2, students will work intensively with patients and doctors in a clinical setting and will be given structured exposure to all aspects of medicine in both the hospital and the community.
You will be assessed rigorously throughout the course so that you can monitor your development, and to assure the Medical School that you are progressing well. There are both written and clinical assessments in all years of the course, and the standards required are high. All assessments are directly related to the practice of medicine, and designed to test how you can apply your understanding and skills to solving patientsâ problems. You have to pass assessments in each year in order to progress, and you will be tested rigorously at the end of the course to make sure you are ready to practise. You can, therefore, be confident that on graduation you will be thoroughly prepared for your career as a doctor.
We will assess your progress rigorously throughout the course so that you, the Medical School and the public can be confident that you are meeting the high standards required of a doctor.
There will be a combination of written examinations, structured clinical examinations and the use of an e-portfolio of evidence of progress, all chosen to make the most valid and reliable test of your abilities.
The other main purpose of the assessment system is to drive the learning of all students, and the Medical School has therefore chosen to place a high weight on educational impact in the design of the assessment system. The aim is to assess students in ways that will drive deep, contextual and constructive learning that will last into life-long practice.
Application deadline details:
A great small town, with the markets a definite highlight - they are a great opportunity to get bargain stuff for your flat, The locals are very friendly, and you'll definitely get to know everyone - the social life is quite intimate, think of it a bit like a giant 6th form rather than the typical university experience. The SU holds a lot of great events throughout the year, so there's loads to do.

So far its great. I also think that the semesters are well thought. Since recession summerjobs are not readily available for international students in the UK and I really don't want to waste four months of my year in doing nothing.
