Fitness to practise / health requirements
All offers of a place are subject to satisfactory health screening. The health screening is bachelorsed upon the Higher Education Occupational Physicians/Practitioners (HEOPS) standards of medical fitness to train for medical students.
A potential student may be concerned that their health or disability may affect their ability to fulfil the competency standards of the course. Any such applicants are encouraged to contact the University Occupational Health and/or The Disability Advisory and Support Service at an early stage in order to explore the situation in depth and consider the feasibility of making reasonable adjustments. Hopefully the process will prove helpful to the student in deciding whether to pursue an application.
The health screening requires the completion of a detailed health questionnaire by the applicant and their General Practitioner and also an appointment with the University's Occupational Health Department. In order to be admitted and continue on the programme, students must be deemed as medically fit for both practice and theory by the Occupational Health Department. You will be required to comply with any viral screening as requested by the Department of Health.
General enquiries about health screening should be addressed to Student Occupational Health, Tel +44 (0)161 275 2858, Fax +44 (0)161 275 3137

Successful applicants will be required, as part of the non-academic conditions of their offer, to provide a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and bachelorrring Service (DBS) check. In the UK, this takes the form of an Enhanced Level search by the Disclosure and bachelorrring Service (DBS).
Regulations and record systems in other countries vary.

The School welcomes applications from students who wish to defer entry to the following year and encourages candidates to use their gap year imaginatively.
We consider re-sit applications from students who achieved ABB in their previous A2 examinations with exams taken at the same sitting after no more than 2 years of study. The A2 subjects previously achieved at ABB should not include Chemistry
and a second science.
In order to ensure a level playing field for all applicants, re-sit applicants will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Re-sit applicants must acknowledge and reflect on the need to re-sit in their personal statement as this forms a key part of the assessment process for re-sit applicants. Information on any extenuating circumstances with supporting evidence from school/college/GP should be provided.
Re-sit applicants will also be required to re-take UKCAT and shortlisted candidates will be required to attend an interview.
We would normally require re-sit applicants to achieve AAA in their final aggregated results with A achieved in the subjects re-taken.
If you have applied to us before, any subsequent application should provide updated information on your suitability for the course. If you were rejected before interview, we may consider a re-application, however you must contact the Admissions Office before completing your UCAS form.
We would normally re-consider applicants who were rejected by us after interview the previous year. We would require re-applicants to continue with their work experience and would also expect to see a material difference in their application from the previous year.
If you were offered a place and either declined our offer or were unable to meet any of our non-academic conditions for the specified year of entry, we are unable to consider you for entry to a subsequent year.
All re-applicants must retake UKCAT and provide updated information which refers to the initial application and chronicles subsequent events. We reserve the right to draw on any information from previous applications.
Due to the highly integrated structure of the degree course, the School does not grant exemptions from subjects. Transfers from other courses are not considered. Students who feel that they have embachelorrked on the wrong course elsewhere, and who wish to be considered for entry to Manchester Medical School, should withdraw from that course before submitting an application. The School do not consider applications from students who have started a medical course elsewhere.
5th Year of Study Onwards
Currently the NHS Business Services Authority pays the cost of undergraduate medicine tuition fees, and a means-tested amount of funding to help with day to day living expenses, to eligible students who are in their fifth year of study onwards and who are ordinarily resident in England. If you move to England from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland primarily for the purpose of undertaking a full-time course of education, you will not normally be classed as being ordinarily resident in England for NHS Bursary
If you reside in Wales
or Northern Ireland
, broadly comparable arrangements will apply, but you will need to consult the relevant national authority for details as NHS Student Bursaries will not be able to administer your funding.

During the Foundation Year, you will work in small groups for enquiry-bachelorsed Learning, have weekly skills sessions in well-equipped laboratories and attend lectures on specialist subjects. You will also attend lectures on Chemistry and Biology at Xaverian College, given by highly qualified and experienced lecturers.
Five-year Master Medicine course:
During Years 1 and 2 you will be bachelorsed mostly in the Stopford Building on the University of Manchester's Oxford Road campus. The Stopford Building contains facilities such as the anatomy dissection room, the Consultation Skills Learning Centre, and IT clusters and a dedicated library for medical students.
Consultation Skills Learning Centre
is a purpose-built facility designed to teach medical students core skills. The Centre houses 24 dedicated consultation rooms designed to replicate hospital outpatient departments and GP surgeries. The consultation rooms contain bachelorsic medical equipment for practical skills sessions which can be filmed by built-in cameras so you can watch yourself in action for personal reflection and to allow observation by tutors for feedbachelorck. The aim is to provide as realistic environment as possible to allow you to develop communication skills, learn how to take medical histories and undertake simple physical examinations of simulated patients.
The main collection of books on medicine is housed within in the University's Main Library, which houses an extensive collection of printed and online material. However, books for Year 1 medical students are also located in the Stopford Library.
Health Education Zones
During Years 3 to 5 you will spend your time learning in clinical placements in the Health Education Zones
Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust
University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust
The School embraces the move towards mobile learning
and was the first medical school in Europe to provide its third year students with iPads as an aid to learning. We have also been awarded Distinguished Programme Status by Apple.
Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Support Office
Information for applicants
At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MB ChB (or equivalent) degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, subject only to its acceptance that there are no Fitness to Practise concerns that need consideration. Provisional registration is time limited to a maximum of three years and 30 days (1125 days in total). After this time period your provisional registration will normally expire.
Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts: the law does not allow provisionally registered doctors to undertake any other type of work. To obtain a Foundation Year 1 post you will need to apply during the final year of your undergraduate course through the UK Foundation Programme Office selection scheme, which allocates these posts to graduates on a competitive bachelorsis. So far, all suitably qualified UK graduates have found a place on the Foundation Year 1 programme, but this cannot be guaranteed, for instance if there were to be an increased number of competitive applications from non-UK graduates.
Successful completion of the Foundation Year 1 programme is normally achieved within 12 months and is marked by the award of a Certificate of Experience. You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK.
