This guide has been updated to reflect the very latest scores for 2021 entry, and we’ve included more detail on international Medical Schools at the bottom of this page, too.
There are a number of different Medical School rankings available, which means it can be hard to work out which university is the best for Medicine or compare Med Schools.
We’ve collated both these types of rankings into one Medicine league table, so it’s easy to see which Medical Schools rank the highest.
The table below breaks down Medical School league rankings into four columns, highlighting the overall Complete University score and its scores for student satisfaction and graduate prospects. It also shows the Guardian’s overall score for each university.
You can sort the table by each element, allowing you to see which schools have the highest student satisfaction, for example.
|Medical School||Complete University Guide Overall Score (out of 100)||Student Satisfaction (out of 5 - Complete University Guide)||Graduate Prospects (out of 100 - Complete University Guide)||Guardian Score (out of 100)|
