This five-year degree programme leads to the award of Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS)* and draws on the strength of our partnership with the NHS in Devon and Cornwall to provide what we believe to be the most exciting and innovative medical undergraduate degree programme available today, delivering a unique learning experience in healthcare.

Our Medicine degree produces capable and confident Foundation doctors who are prepared for their role. Our graduates are equipped with the skills for lifelong learning and continue to develop in their professional careers. The importance of being able to work as a member of a multi-professional team, to know when to lead and when to follow, is designed into the programme.

We will work closely with you throughout your studies to ensure that you are properly advised about career development and that your learning experiences enable you to be competitive in any medical employment market you wish to work. The degree programme is carefully structured so that you will graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for safe practice and entry into your first clinical job.
