Applying to study Medicine at Lancaster University from 2013-14
In November 2012, the General Medical Council approved Lancaster Medical School to deliver their own medical degree independently from the University of Liverpool. Students who commence their studies after September 2013, will be registered as Lancaster University students and will graduate with a Lancaster University degree, subject to ongoing GMC approval. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the admissions team on email@example.com
For 2014 entry, UCAS applications should be made through Lancaster University (L14; course code A100) before the deadline of 15th October 2013.
Only home/EU students are eligible to apply for the medical degree programme at Lancaster for 2013 entry. Applicants who are classified as overseas are not eligible. Please see here for more details.
There is no four-year graduate entry version of the degree at Lancaster University.
Clinical placements in Cumbria and North Lancashire
The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust takes responsibility throughout the five years of the degree for the provision of acute practice placements. As well as the time spent in the Morecambe Bay hospitals (The Royal Lancaster Infirmary, Furness General Hospital in Barrow-in-Furness, and the Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal), students spend around a third of their clinical contact time in the community. Primary care placements are based in general practices across the Cumbria and North Lancashire region, and North Lancashire Primary Care Trust and the Lancashire Care NHS Trust provide mental health placements.
