The Foundation Year for Medicine is aimed at students from the North West of England who have the potential and aspiration to become doctors. It is for anyone who has studied the A levels required for entry onto our MBChB medical programme but whose background may mean it is less likely that they will be able to meet the academic entry requirements for direct entry onto the MBChB. You must meet certain widening participation criteria to be eligible to apply.
The programme focuses on academic achievement in medical sciences, together with the development of leadership, management and communication skills and an understanding of public health. Opportunities for clinical and community learning will be supported by work experience, voluntary work or work shadowing, to develop an understanding of the people within the local community where care is provided.
While this foundation year does not normally lead to an award or qualification in its own right, successful completion of the foundation year at the required pass mark enables progression onto the five-year MBChB medical programme at Edge Hill University.
