Bachelor in Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS)

University of Lincoln

The Course

The University of Lincoln has embarked on an exciting collaboration with the University of Nottingham to offer medical education in Lincolnshire. Students can now apply to study for the University of Nottingham's Medicine BMBS degree based in Lincoln, taught by academic staff from both universities.

Nottingham medicine courses are some of the most popular in the country, offering innovative teaching and early interaction with patients. We aim to ensure that our doctors learn from experience and the course offers a varied placement experience, providing the opportunity to gain hands-on clinical experience through excellent links with local Lincolnshire NHS trusts.

All applications for this course must be made through UCAS. Students will need to apply to the University of Nottingham and choose the Medicine BMBS (Lincoln pathway) as an option.

Applications should be made online at ucas.com and candidates will be notified of decisions through UCAS using UCAS Track. Applications for 2019 entry will open on UCAS from 1 September 2018.

How You Study

Contact Hours and Reading for a Degree

Students on this programme learn from academic staff who are often engaged in world-leading or internationally excellent research or professional practice. Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, seminars or lectures and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in external visits and fieldwork.

It is still the case that students read for a degree and this means that in addition to scheduled contact hours, students are required to engage in independent study. This allows you to read around a subject and to prepare for lectures and seminars through wider reading, or to complete follow up tasks such as assignments or revision. As a general guide, the amount of independent study required by students at the University of Lincoln is that for every hour in class you are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

How You Are Assessed

Assessment methods on this course may vary depending on the module being studied. Further detail on the assessment methods used on this course and an example of a first-year timetable can be found on the University of Nottingham's course pages.
