Choosing a course
The Departments and Institutes of the School of Clinical Medicine offer a wide range of research and taught courses. Before applying we recommend you explore the online course directory and don’t be afraid to get in touch with the individual departments if you have any questions. Once you have chosen a course, make sure you have familiarised yourself with all application deadlines, including those related to funding (if applicable).
