Pros and Cons

College system – provides a tight-knit community unlike campus universities

Intense workload – Medicine at any university has a high workload and that is also true of Oxford’s 8-week terms

Late clinical contact – as a Traditional course, you will have relatively little patient contact early on

Limited choices in choosing your intercalated degree – but within the Medical Science degree, huge breadth and depth!

Traditional course – providing a strong emphasis on a principles underpinning medicine

Tutorials – led by experts in their field and offering world-class learning personalised to you
