Medicine Undergraduate Foundation

A Medicine Undergraduate Foundation is a one-year (3 term) programme which offers successful students a pathway to apply for Year 1 of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) at UCLan. Students will typically study 3-4 subjects, depending on the pathway chosen, as well as English Language. One of the most important requirements for university entry is English language level and as well as filling any academic gaps, English Language is critical to students' success.

Students, on average, will spend up to five hours per week per subject in class and be expected to allocate a similar number of hours to independent study.

The benefits of an Undergraduate Foundation include;

  • a focused pathway that is designed to offer the best chance of entry to university 
  • the offer of guaranteed progression to a partner university (although this is usually subject to achieving the pass mark required), giving you peace of mind 
  • the opportunity to study on university campus, so you feel part of the university from the moment you arrive
  • to have the support of a personal tutor and subject tutors to ensure you stay on track with your study 
  • to live in university accommodation - mixing with current undergraduate students 
  • independence. Students are responsible for managing their own time, their independent study, completing homework, cooking, shopping and their budget.
