Exeter’s five-year BMBS programme will develop students’ skills for lifelong learning and emphasise the need for a multi-professional perspective. The curriculum is clinical-focused with a patient-centred approach that prepares students to work in an integrated health setting.

In the first-year students will learn about the core biomedical and psychosocial concepts within a clinical context. This will happen alongside clinical skills training and placement experiences.

In your second year, the core material learnt in the first year will be further developed, integrated and contextualised.

The third-year is when students will start Clinical Pathways 1 at one of Exeter’s secondary NHS Trust sites. Learning will be patient-centred and rotate through hospital and community placements.

Clinical Pathways 2 happens in year four and gives students valuable experience in a wide range of clinical settings. You will build your clinical skills and knowledge via increasing clinical specialities. Between year four and five, there is a chance to undertake an intercalated degree to explore other disciplines and contribute to the depth of your study. Electives also play a crucial role in the curriculum and can give you a chance to experience Medicine in an entirely different environment such as other parts of the UK or perhaps in a different country.

In the final year, students undertake a series of apprenticeship attachments in which you’ll draw upon all the skills gained so far to evaluate patient conditions and suggest forms of clinical management.

What are the best things about your Medical School?

What are the hardest things about your course?

What’s the social side of your Medical School like?

MedSoc is an extremely large society on St. Luke’s campus and welcomes the new students reading a variety of different subjects each year. Exeter nightlife is a great opportunity to take advantage of. MedSoc runs frequent social nights out, combined with the array of daytime and activities, which are always a great laugh. There are also plenty of other great societies to get involved with at St. Luke’s as well as the Streatham campus. Medical students and others living around St. Luke’s tend to form a close and tightly-knit community which makes the social life even better. The self-directed nature of the course makes it easier to plan a social life around it.
