Our Medical Sciences degree is designed primarily for students who want to become medical doctors. Every year, there are ten places available on the A101 medicine programme at Cardiff University for suitably qualified graduates of this course and our graduates are also able to progress to graduate entry medicine at other universities.
The teaching of all subject areas, which range from anatomy and physiology to clinical skills and health policy, is reinforced by applying theoretical knowledge to clinical scenarios. Throughout the Medical Sciences degree you will gain valuable, hands-on clinical training and research experience from intensive work placements in local NHS facilities.
As well as being a strong scientific qualification, a key feature of our Medical Sciences course is the application of scientific knowledge to clinical scenarios using simulation and case-based learning.
From studying topics as diverse as tropical medicine, clinical practice or biological anthropology to potentially being selected to take part in human dissection, you will gain robust scientific knowledge and skills during this course.
When you graduate, you'll be able to decide which area of healthcare is suitable for you and be in a very strong position for an application to graduate entry medicine.
International students are unable to study this degree because UK Health Authorities will not permit them to undertake placements. Placements are a critical part of the Medical Sciences degree and there are placements required in both years one and two to support the patient handling element of the course. International applicants may wish to consider our BSc (Hons) Human Biology degree. This course does not require any clinical placements but is a biomedically orientated degree. Successful completion of this degree would allow them to apply for Postgraduate graduate entry medical programmes at other institutions within the UK.
