The University of Central Lancashire, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust and North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust are offering 2 scholarships for the MBBS (Bachelor Medicine Bachelor Surgery) for UK students from the North West of England.

The scholarship offered jointly by UCLan and East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust is known as the Mackenzie Scholarship; while the scholarship offered jointly by UCLan North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, is known as the Dr Kate Granger Scholarship.

The scholarship will cover all tuition fees for the duration of the 5 year programme and clinical placement costs in the respective Trusts; plus a bursary for subsistence which will be equal to the maximum amount of subsistence allowance that the Student would be entitled to if they were to borrow from the Student Loans Company. The latter will be means tested as part of the UCLan’s MBBS UK Scholarship application process.

Scholarship students will be taught alongside the MBBS cohort throughout the 5 year programme, commencing at the Preston campus.

Through these scholarships, the University and Trusts aim:

  • To support local, disadvantaged students in their application to medicine.
  • To support those whose circumstances mean they are unlikely to study medicine despite being academically capable.
  • To attract local doctors to NHS employment in the region.


  • Dr Kate Granger scholarship: be resident in Copeland or Allerdale. If no successful applicant from Copeland or Allerdale is eligible then students from the wider Cumbria region will be considered.
  • MacKenzie scholarship: be resident in one of the following areas; Blackburn with Darwen, Hyndburn, Accrington, Burnley, Pendle, the Ribble Valley and Rossendale.
  • For both scholarships: have met or are expected to meet the MBBS entry requirements as outlined in this document.

We particularly welcome applications from

  • Members of disadvantaged groups, which include
    • Care leavers
    • Estranged students
    • Young adult carers
  • Low income families
  • First generation higher education participants


Students should apply for the MBBS via the UCAS system. No additional scholarship application is required.

As part of the awarding of each scholarship, all applicants will be invited to complete a widening participation form.

Each applicant who is shortlisted for interview will take part in the same competitive selection process outlined in these documents. In the awarding of the MBBS scholarships preference will be given to successful applications from a widening participation background.

The final offer of an MBBS scholarship based on ranking after interview and additional weighting.
