University of Brighton Medicine

The Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) is a partnership between the University of Brighton, the University of Sussex and NHS Trusts across the Surrey and Sussex region.

The BSMS Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) degree integrates the development of academic knowledge with clinical experience. From the first term, you learn to apply your knowledge of the biomedical sciences to real-life patient care.

Successful completion of the course entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC), subject to demonstrating your fitness to practise. You are then able to undertake further training to become a GP or medical consultant.

Entry requirements

The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2017. They should be used as a general guide.

We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.

BSMS gives equal emphasis to applicants’ academic qualifications and their personal qualities and potential. Based on information from applications, candidates will be recommended by the admissions board to be invited to interview. Individual offers will depend on interviewers’ recommendations.

Most standard offers for entry to us are conditional on gaining three A grades at A-level (to include biology and chemistry). We do not specify the nature of the third A-level subject and the vast majority of our applicants will choose to study maths or physics, however we strongly encourage applications from students who study humanities or the arts as we recognise their value in broadening academic horizons. It should be noted that general studies and critical thinking is not acceptable at any level.
