Undergraduate Study


In view of the COVID-19 public health emergency, we may need to make changes to the course details outlined on these pages. Offers holders will be notified of changes. Please see this page for further information.

At Cambridge, we offer two medicine courses – the Standard Course and the Graduate Course. Throughout, our aim is to educate students to become compassionate, thoughtful, skilled members – and leaders – of the medical profession.
