과정 소개

Most medical schools in the UK require successful completion of A Levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB), with top grades in Biology, Chemistry and either Maths or Physics. Overseas students also have to demonstrate an English proficiency equivalent to IELTS 7.0 (7.0 in each skill).

The International Foundation Year (Medicine) provides an alternative route to medicine for international students who have not studied A Levels or IB. It is accepted for entry to a medical degree at Cardiff University, subject to grades and other conditions. Please note this international programme does not accept UK students.

Important: Progression to a medical degree is not guaranteed. Successful progression is subject to a competitive entrance interview and you may have to pass an admissions test (e.g. UKCAT or BMAT). It is also very important to demonstrate your interest and commitment through work experience and voluntary work in the health sector. Students who are unable to progress to medicine may be offered an alternative, for example Biomedical Science.



Completion of high school with excellent grades, including Chemistry and either two other sciences or maths and one science. Students following the British curriculum will need IGCSE and AS Levels (Minimum grade B in Chemistry, Biology & Maths). International US system schools are not accepted. Students with IB or full A levels are not accepted.

If you receive a conditional offer for this course, you will be required to pass and interview and take a UCAT test before the course starts (including a result within bands 1-3 of the Situational Judgement sub test).


English level equivalent to IELTS 6.0 (6.0 in Writing and 5.5 in all skills). You will need to provide an English test before confirming your place.

Minimum Age

Minimum age 17 years (at start of course).
