Our accelerated degree enables you to complete the syllabus of years 1 and 2 of our five-year programme in one extended academic year (45 weeks).

During year 1, you learn through case-led teaching, with clinical cases used to ensure a problem-first, task-based focus.

You are allocated to a small study group, led by a senior medical tutor who provides support and guidance throughout the year.

Following completion of the extended year 1, you are integrated into a common pathway alongside undergraduate students on our five-year course.

Medicine at Newcastle is consistently one of the most highly regarded medical degrees in the UK. The excellence of our programmes has been confirmed by the General Medical Council (GMC).
