21st century medical teaching


“The School of Medicine at St Andrews provides the unique opportunity for students to graduate after three years at St Andrews with a BSc Honours in Medicine. before moving on to one of our Partner Medical Schools to complete a further three years of medical training and graduate with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MB ChB/MBBS).”

In the BSc Honours in Medicine we integrate a sound knowledge of the scientific basis of medicine within a professional, clinical context. This approach produces graduates who not only understand medicine but also recognise the important contribution that science and scientific research make to the practice of modern medicine.

In addition the School offers a number of postgraduate programmes.


World class research


Multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches have been central to the continued success of medical research in St Andrews. Internationally recognised research programmes in various aspects of molecular medicine, psychology and community health sciences are currently being promoted and extended.



Our purpose-built research facilities within the Medical School building provide the infrastructure and academic environment to ensure the sustained development and expansion of medical research in St Andrews in the future
