Medicine Foundation Courses

Your pathway to study medicine in the UK

If you are an international student who wishes to study medicine in the UK, you may need to study a foundation or pre-clinical course before successfully gaining entry on to an undergraduate medicine degree.

Some courses are a route for learners with a good academic record (in non-science subjects), whilst others are designed to widen access to the medical profession. All are designed better to prepare international applicants for a full-time degree in medicine.

Medicine foundation programmes last for one year, and students generally focus on biology, chemistry, maths, and English. The final assessment is practical work and examinations.
