Study Medicine at Aston University

Study Medicine in the UK

Aston University’s Medicine MBChB course has been designed to prepare you for the demands of a medical career, with an emphasis on working compassionately with patients as partners, within a multi-disciplinary team. You’ll gain exposure to real clinical settings through a series of clinical placements each year, develop a wide range of skills and a broad knowledge base.

Why study Medicine at Aston University?

Aston Medical School will develop your core competencies in medicine, hone your team-working skills and give you an understanding of the internationally admired NHS (National Health Service).

Throughout your time with us, you will be encouraged to develop into an independent life-long learner, with critical thinking skills and the caring and empathetic attitude needed to embark on your first post after graduation as a Foundation Doctor.

Our patient-centred curriculum is taught across five years in two phases. It starts by expanding and deepening your existing science education, covering topics such as the fundamentals of body structure, infection and pathological processes. As you move into the second phase, a large proportion of your learning will take place in clinical environments, working with practising doctors and healthcare professionals in placements ranging from cancer care to integrated medicine.

What are the entry requirements?

  • AAA from the NCUK International Foundation Year
  • Grade A on English for Academic Purposes module from the NCUK International Foundation Year
  • UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test)
  • Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs). Normally, the MMIs are held on campus at Aston University and candidates are expected to attend in person. However, under certain circumstances, Skype/ remote interviews will be carried out using the same format as the face to face MMIs.

What is the tuition fee?
