Ranked in 2nd in the UK for Medicine (Guardian University Guide 2017)
Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), a Russell Group university in the UK has opened its first overseas medical campus in Malta, Europe. We are now accepting applications for September 2017 entry and our application deadline is 1st May 2017. We are offering two medical programmes:
- A five-year Medicine MBBS Malta(Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) undergraduate programme.
- A one-year Medicine Foundation programme (Certificate in Clinical Foundation Studies Malta) suitable for any student from a country where the education system finishes at the equivalent level of Year 12 (age 16-17) in the UK. This programme, if successfully completed, will allow students to progress onto the above Medicine MBBS.
The programmes will be taught by Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, a leading UK Medical School which is a faculty of QMUL. Barts and The London was formed out of the oldest hospital in Europe, St Bartholomew’s (known as ‘Barts’) which was founded in 1123, and England’s first medical school, The London, which opened in 1785.
Both medicine programmes follow the same core curriculum as the QMUL programmes taught in London and you will be taught in Malta by staff from QMUL as well as local clinicians trained by the School. The Malta programmes have a dedicated teaching building and a state-of-the-art anatomy centre on the Gozo Campus which is next to the Gozo General Hospital. You’ll gain the Barts and The London medicine undergraduate experience while living in the Mediterranean. It’s a great place to study medicine abroad.
The programmes will be based on Gozo, one of the three islands that make up the Republic of Malta. Malta has a dazzling history, spanning 7,000 years: the islands have three UNESCO World Heritage sites (including the entire Maltese capital, Valletta). More recently, you might have seen Malta on TV: the islands provide some of the stunning locations for Game of Thrones.
