Coronavirus: latest information

Welcome to the Medical School

At the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic, our Head of School Professor Keith Lloyd wanted to create an online event experience that would allow you, our online guests, to experience the friendly, student focussed atmosphere of the School. This video is his short 'Welcome' to you as one of our online guests.

Enjoy exploring and get in touch if you have any questions.  

Medical Pharmacology Question and Answer

Medical Pharmacology offers you a variety of specialised career paths to choose from; Research, Enterprise and Innovation and Medicine. The core focus is the effect of drugs and medicines on the body and the effect the body has in turn on drugs and medicines. You will explore the latest science in pharmacology from drug development to illicit drug detection.

In this video current student Francesca talks with Course Director and founder Professor Lisa Wallace exploring the scope of the course and what you might expect to learn and experience.

Want to study Medicine?

If you are applying for undergraduate Medicine, or have a passion for science which you want to quench whilst keeping the option of Medicine open to you in the future, our Pathways to Medicine are the perfect route for you. Our Pathways prepare students to apply to Graduate Entry Medicine Programmes across the UK but also guarantee you an interview subject to meeting the qualifying criteria. 

Our Director of Learning and Teaching Professor Phil Newton talks with current Medicine Student and Pathways Graduate Gloria about how Pathways work and what to expect if you choose this route.
