Subject

Pre-clinical medicine

Our medicine degree offers an innovative approach to medical education, training students to become professional, compassionate doctors. During the 5-year programme you will benefit from a state-of-the-art curriculum; designed with local patients. We offer a warm, supportive and multi-cultural learning environment, where every student is treated as an individual. You’ll enjoy early patient contact and clinical placements from Year 1. The programme is delivered by expert staff in the University and our associate NHS education providers.
In 2018, this course is open to international students and a limited number of places will be available for UK students from the North West of England. Weighting will be given to UK Widening Participation students. UK applications from outside the North West will not be considered. Two regional UK scholarships offering full tuition fees and a maintenance grant are also available. For more information, go to our website.

The aim of the MBBS is to deliver a curriculum which ensures that our students emerge as doctors who are not only well grounded in clinical knowledge and skills but also with strong values of caring and compassion

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Medical degrees are some of the most difficult courses to enter, but very nearly all graduates go on to good, well-paid and secure careers in health. If you're taking a shorter pre-clinical course, you'll need to continue on to further medical training to complete an accredited qualification, which explains why a high proportion of those grads are 'in further study' six months later. And at the moment, the UK is short of doctors and we have upped the number of places available, so demand remains high.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
