What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
Including Chemistry and/or Biology at A level and excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking. For Biology, Chemistry and Physics A levels, we require a pass in the practical element. If only one of Biology and/or Chemistry is offered at A or AS level, the other should be offered at GCSE grade A or 7 (or Dual Award Science grade A or 7). Once the academic criteria have been met, academic achievement is not considered further in subsequent parts of the application process e.g. additional A levels or A* results or additional GCSE results are not considered. We would normally expect all applicants to have achieved their A levels on their first attempt. Those who wish resits to be considered must provide information on the extenuating circumstances they wish to be considered. Supporting evidence must be provided from your school or GP.
Including Chemistry and/or Biology. If only one of Chemistry or Biology is offered at Higher level then the other should be offered at National 5, minimum grade A (or grade 1 Standard grade or Intermediate 2 equivalent). Scottish qualifications can be taken in more than one sitting.
Including grade 5 in all subjects with Higher Level grade 6 in Chemistry or Biology. Combinations including two Sciences, Mathematics and English or English Language are desirable.
If your qualifications aren’t listed here, you can use our UCAS points guide of 144 and refer to the university’s website for full details of all entry routes and requirements.

Our MB BS degree uses an integrated teaching approach. The degree is delivered in two Phases: Phase 1 (Stages 1 and 2) involves the study of key subject areas such as cardiovascular, respiratory and renal medicine; Phase 2 (Stages 3 to 5) involves significant clinical experience through placements in the region and further development of your specialist knowledge, such as clinical pharmocology. You will receive clinically focused teaching from our highly trained staff to develop your core medical knowledge, and will develop your clinical competence from the very start of your degree, through a varied menu of early clinical experience, contact with patients and visits to GPs and hospitals and skills development in our dedicated Clinical Skills Laboratory.
