Medicine is one of the most popular subjects for international students looking to study in the UK. The application process can seem long and complicated, so United Education can help you get admission in top universities to study MBBS in UK.
Entry Requirements for MBBS in UK
We have two universities in UK where we don't require UKCAT score to secure admission in MBBS program directly without any foundation or additional degree. Course duration will be 5 years followed by two years of internship training i.e. F1 & F2 training. Successful completion of training will enable you to get GMC registration to practice as a General Physician in UK . We have very limited seats for these two universities.
