Our Medicine MBChB with Foundation Year course enables students without the appropriate science qualifications to prepare for their medical degree.
You will spend your foundation year at the University and Xaverian College , and will start the five-year MBChB course upon successful completion of the foundation course.
The five-year MBChB course educates, trains and prepares students for practice in the healthcare systems of today and the future. We are largest medical school in the UK, with over 2,200 undergraduate medical students.
We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods to ensure you benefit from the best attributes of traditional and novel teaching methods.
The key Manchester approach is the study of themed case discussions in small groups, where students are proactive learners. This is supported throughout the course by lectures, practical classes (including anatomy dissection) and clinical experience.
Our course integrates science and clinical learning so you are able to apply scientific knowledge and concepts to your clinical practice.
Upon graduation, you will be able to apply knowledge, intellectual and practical skills to understand and manage the complex healthcare needs of individuals and society. You will also develop the resilience to meet the demands of changing healthcare environments.
Successful completion of the course will enable you to meet the core requirements for junior doctors and entitles you to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council and apply for Foundation Year 1 posts. See the Careers tab for more details.

For a great student experience Manchester is the place to be, the main student halls only a ten minute magic bus ride from uni, be out of bed and in lectures within half an hour (great after a night out!) With the biggest students union in the UK there is always something to do, try out a 'Why Not Wednesday?' or join a society, there's more than 400 to choose from, including Quidditch! The city centre has all sorts of surprises, loads of opportunity for shopping, sightseeing and eating out. The Northern Quarter is somewhere to be explored for newcomers will a whole host of quirky bars, pubs and restaurants. The city centre is again only a 20 minute magic bus ride from halls. Manchester is is where you want to be!
UoM is an internationally renowned institution for the quality of its degrees, lecturers and students. The learning facilities here are fantastic with so many libraries and learning spaces. I am happy to be a student here as I know employers will look highly upon university of Manchester graduates.
