Warwick Medical School’s graduate entry MB ChB programme performed significantly above subject sector benchmark in four of the seven National Student Survey (NSS) domain areas this year. We are delighted that our students are happy with our approach to Feedback and Assessment, Student Voice, Organisation and Management and Academic Support. We will continue to work hard to provide students with an excellent learning experience and hope to be able to top these results next year.
The latest release of UK Foundation Programme Office (UKFPO) data from 2021 (due to Covid time lag) places our cohort of Warwick graduates 3rd nationally behind Oxford and Cambridge in terms of their scores in the application process for their first foundation posts, and also third nationally in terms of students not being placed on the reserve list for job allocation. We are delighted that our students were therefore more likely than the national average to be allocated to their preferred foundation programme, with 98.59% being allocated to one of their top 5 choices – the second highest rate in the UK.
Almost 10% of our graduating students were successful in achieving an academic foundation programme place in comparison to the national average of 7%.
We are proud of these outcomes that show our students are happy on their course in a number of key areas and they are well prepared for the next stage in their career by achieving excellent graduate outcomes in readiness for the UK Foundation Programme.
