Academic requirements

Our academic requirements for entry to the MB ChB are detailed below. Please note we are unable to carry out an 'individual review' of an applicant's application to the programme.

Degree requirements

To apply, you should have, or be expected to achieve, a minimum of an upper second class honours (2:1) degree (or overseas equivalent) in any subject. Candidates with a lower second class degree should hold either a Master's or a Doctoral qualification to be considered for entry to the MB ChB. Please note that any pending postgraduate qualifications must be fully completed prior to the course start date, with no exceptions.

During the selection process, you will be awarded points for your highest achieved academic qualification. You will only receive points for PhD and Master's qualifications which are complete and awarded by the UCAS application closing date.

Unclassified degrees

If you are studying for an undergraduate degree which is unclassified please contact us directly, prior to the UCAS deadline for applications (mbchb.admissions@warwick.ac.uk). Applications received after the UCAS deadline and without prior contact with us will not be considered.

Integrated Masters

In the case of an Integrated Masters eg. MEng/MPharm, we require the equivalent of a Pass grade or above at Master's level (minimum 2:2).

A-Levels and GCSEs

We do not consider your A-level or GCSE examination results.

Applicants who have previously studied medicine

We will not consider applications from students who have previously studied medicine and have had to leave the programme of study due to academic failure without successful mitigation (in one or more subjects/modules/blocks) or due the findings of a fitness to practise hearing.

Deferred entry/ Transfers

We do not accept deferred entry or transfers from other programmes.
