Why study at Barts and The London?

  • Medicine 3rd – The Guardian University Guide 2018 – UK subject rankings
  • 1st in London for overall student satisfaction – NSS 2016

Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry brings together two venerable teaching institutions: St Bartholomew’s Hospital, which dates back to 1123, and The London Hospital Medical College, founded in 1785, the oldest medical school in England and Wales. The hospitals lie in two very different parts of London, the City and the East End, exposing you to a greater diversity of people and their health problems than at almost any other medical and dental school in the UK.

You will be taught by experts in their field who are passionately engaged with their subject. This is reflected in the high satisfaction rates among our medical students: in the National Student Survey.

We have also completely eliminated the traditional divide between pre-clinical studies and clinical years, which means that you will start seeing patients from the very first term.

We have modern state-of-the-art buildings alongside more traditional facilities, such as our fantastic library. A major redevelopment of the Royal London Hospital is complete and includes London’s leading trauma and emergency care centre, one of Europe’s largest renal services and one of the UK’s biggest paediatric services.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly School, with excellent staff-student relationships. Our students are very sociable and committed to the local community through voluntary work and Rag Week – renowned for astounding fundraising feats! There are lots of clubs and societies, and a student association just for medical and dental students


Studying medicine is about much more than just getting your MBBS degree and becoming a doctor. Medicine is a vocation and a way of life. It’s about thinking of others and putting your patients first.

It’s a challenging and demanding course – you’ll have lots of work to do and plenty to learn, but you’ll find it highly rewarding. There’s great variety in terms of your workplaces, the patients and illnesses you’ll encounter and the people you’ll work alongside. One of the most important skills you’ll need to develop is teamwork and the ability to communicate well with colleagues, patients and relatives.

Medicine is a tough profession: people who are unwell are not always easy to handle – they may, understandably, be scared or irritable. But you won’t find many doctors who regret their choice of career. With all its challenges, the thrill of being a doctor never leaves you: medicine is exciting and stimulating, and diagnosing and recommending treatments and helping others is intrinsically rewarding.

The four-year programme leading to the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery is designed to be a fast-track route for graduates who obtained good degrees in science or health-related subjects. The first year of study is based on the first two years of the five year programme.

Key features of the curriculum include:

  • Problem-Based Learning (PBL).
  • Early patient contact: in Year 2 you will join Year 3 undergraduate students on the five year MB BS programme for clinical studies in general practices and on the wards of associated teaching hospitals.
  • Practical experience: after studying the medical specialities, you will be given more clinical experience to prepare you for practice as a Foundation Year House Officer (FY1).
