Students with Scottish qualifications would usually be expected to have AAAAB or AAAAA in Scottish Highers, supplemented by two or more Advanced Highers. The University currently sets conditional offers that require AAB if a student is able to take three Advanced Highers; where this is not possible then a student would be expected to achieve AA in two Advanced Highers, as well as an A grade in an additional Higher course taken in Year 6.

Course description

The Medicine course at Oxford provides a well-rounded intellectual training with particular emphasis on the basic science research that underpins medicine. We have retained a distinct three-year pre-clinical stage that includes studying towards a BA Honours degree in Medical Sciences, followed by a three-year clinical stage. Despite recent expansion, the Medical School at Oxford remains relatively small, allowing students and staff to get to know one another and benefit from a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Modules

Pre-clinical (3 years): Terms 1-5: The cell, micro-organisms and disease (morphology, biochemistry, pathology); systems of the body (anatomy, physiology, pharmacology); neural, behavioural and neuroendocrine mechanisms (neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroendocrinology, psychology); medical sociology. Terms 6-9: Options from: physiology of the nervous system; circulation; respiration; endocrines; body fluids; biochemistry; cell biology; molecular genetics; immunology; pharmacology; dissertation on either experimental work or library study (may be substituted for 1 option). Clinical (2 years and 10 months): Either at Oxford Clinical School or Clinical School elsewhere; Oxford Clinical School Centred on New John Radcliffe Hospital; teaching and research also carried out at other Oxford hospitals; opportunities for clinical experience in district general hospitals within and outside Oxford region.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Good news! Medical degrees have, and will no doubt continue to have, some of the best employment outcomes of any qualification in terms of salary expectations and long-term prospects. Unsurprisingly, almost all graduates go into jobs within the health sector. 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.
