University of Southampton (Graduate Entry)
The University of Southampton offer the complete set of four-year, five-year and six-year medical degree programmes, tailored to the background of each student. The accelerated four-year course (also known as BM4) is suitable for graduate applicants from any discipline. The programme takes an integrated approach, combining traditional learning and clinical practice from the very first year. At Southampton you’ll get clinical experience from the first weeks of your course, meeting patients in hospital and primary care settings.
The graduate course incorporates more small-group learning than the standard course, with weekly “graduate group” case discussions alongside traditional lectures and anatomy practicals. The first two years of the graduate course is loosely based around the first three years of the standard five-year course, with BM4 students joining standard five-year students from Year 3 onwards on clinical attatchments.
Southampton place a heavy emphasis on UCAT score during the selection process. Applicants meeting the minimum entry requirements with a good UCAT score are likely to receive an interview and make ideal applicants.

The course offers an integrated approach with early clinical contact from the beginning of the course. The course is taught through a range of teaching methods including lectures, workshops, practical classes and structured clinical modules.
The graduate course is focused around "graduate groups" in early years, which takes elements of case base learning and applies it to the strengths of each student in that cohort.
