The stand alone Graduate Entry Medicine Programme (MB BCh) in Swansea is unique in Wales, and one of a small group of similar programmes of medical study in the UK. It is an innovative, 4-year accelerated medical degree open to graduates of any discipline.

The Graduate Entry Medicine Programme is a fully independent four-year programme based primarily in Swansea and West Wales, although students may undergo placements in other parts of Wales if they wish. We have designed an integrated medical curriculum, where the basic biomedical sciences are learnt in the context of clinical medicine, public health, pathology, therapeutics, ethics and psycho-social issues in patient management. This, together with a high emphasis on clinical and communication skills, will provide you with everything you'll need to practise medicine competently and confidently.

The curriculum, with its learning weeks and clinical placements, is intentionally not structured in a conventional ‘body systems’ approach but is designed to reflect the way in which clinicians approach patients and how patients present to doctors.

This innovative approach will help you to develop a way of thinking and of engaging with information that mimics that used in clinical practice. As you work your way through learning weeks, clinical placements and practical sessions, you will acquire knowledge and build up your repertoire of clinical understanding and skills. Themes and strands, which run longitudinally throughout the Medicine (Graduate Entry) programme, will help you make links with other aspects you are learning, and with things you have previously considered, as well as how all this relates to clinical practice.

The Medicine (Graduate Entry) programme consists of Phase I (Years 1 + 2) and Phase II (Years 3 + 4). Each year is mapped onto GMC Tomorrow’s Doctors 2009 (TD09), where three modules reflect the TD09 outcome areas:

• Scholar and Scientist
• Practitioner
• Professional

The Medicine (Graduate Entry) programme involves a spiral, integrated curriculum structured around 6 body system ‘themes’ – Behaviour, Defence, Development, Movement, Nutrition and Transport – with 96 clinical cases presented in 70 ‘learning weeks’ (65 in Phase I and 5 in Phase II).

There is a high level of clinical contact:

• 39 weeks Clinical Apprenticeships
• 35 weeks Specialty Attachments
• 11 weeks Community Based Learning
• 6 weeks Elective, 6 weeks Shadowing

Phase I
Learning Weeks (Case based, includes Integrated Clinical Method)
Community-Based Learning (CBL) in General Practice for one day every third week
LOCS - Learning Opportunities in the Clinical Setting
Early Apprenticeships (1-3)

Phase II
Case of the Week (Case Based Learning Weeks)
Clinical Apprenticeships
Intermediate Apprenticeships (4-6)
Assistantships (7-9) (Medicine, Surgery and Primary Care)
CBL in Year 3
Specialty Attachments in Years 3 and 4 – Seven 5 Week placements in Acute Medicine, Acute Surgery, Rehabilitation and General Medicine, Women’s Health, Child Health, Mental Health, Sub-Specialities of Medicine and Surgery
Elective at end of Year 3 (6 Week Clinical Placement mostly taken overseas)
Shadowing period at end of Year 4 prior to F1 (6 Week Clinical Placement where students “shadow” F1 doctors in their allocated post in Wales or join the all-Wales ‘shadow’ programme)

How to Apply

All applications are made via UCAS. For Home/EU applicants, this is twelve months in advance of the intended study period. International applications will be welcome during early May 2016.

All applications are scrutinised and considered on their own merits and selection is based upon three main factors:

Your academic achievements
GAMSAT score
Performance at interview

You must sit the GAMSAT in advance of applying through UCAS. Only those who meet the eligibility criteria explained above are eligible for consideration.

Overview

The Graduate Entry Medicine course is delivered by the University of Nottingham in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site.

The four-year medical course commenced in September 2003 and is open to graduates of any discipline. There is an annual intake of 87 home/EU students who are based in Derby for the first 18 months of their course. For the Clinical Years, these students will combine with the students from the five-year course and whilst on placement will rotate around many of the teaching hospitals in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, and in the community. Experiencing different sites across the counties is an educational and desirable feature of your training. Currently our students are on placements at the following hospitals:

Nottinghamshire

Queens Medical Centre, City Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Nottingham
Kingsmill Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Mansfield
Newark Hospital, Newark-on-Trent
Derbyshire

Royal Derby Hospital, Derby
Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Chesterfield

Lincolnshire
Lincoln County Hospital, Lincoln
Grantham Hospital, Grantham
Pilgrim Hospital, Boston
The course aims to widen access to a broader range of applicants than school leavers with A levels. It is intended to build on the intellectual skills acquired by students who have undertaken a first degree.

After successful completion of the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) degree, graduates are required to undergo a further two years of foundation doctor training. Full registration is granted by the GMC at the end of the first year of this training. Non-British nationals graduating from UK medical schools are subject to work-permit restrictions.

Eligibility

Graduates will need a minimum of a lower second-class degree and must apply through UCAS, course code A101.

In addition you must have sat the GAMSAT examination (which is designed to ensure the entrants have the requisite knowledge and reasoning skills) in either September 2014 or September 2015.

NB: registration for GAMSAT and application to the School of Medicine via UCAS are separate processes and both are required for admission to the graduate entry course.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on work experience, as we want to ensure that you are making a well-informed choice about your future career, something which a few days shadowing would not provide. Relevant experience could include volunteering in a care home, working as a healthcare assistant within a hospital.

You also need to complete a satisfactory health check and criminal records checks - for more information see our "Fitness to Practise" information.

The Graduate Entry LLB (Hons) is a senior status law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three.

Who is it for?

This course is for graduates who have a proven academic track record who wish to gain a qualification in law either for legal professional purposes or to advance their careers in law related fields.

For students who intend to practise in law in the UK, the GE LLB Programme offers graduates the possibility of obtaining exemption from the academic stage of training over two years instead of the one year Graduate Diploma. Not only does this give students the chance to take electives in legal subjects but also gives them the chance to acquire work experience in the summer vacation.

The course attracts many international students, particularly Canadians who, once they graduate, are well on the way to satisfying the Canadian NCA requirements.

Objectives

The Graduate Entry LLB (Hons) is a senior status law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three.

You will have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in the core legal subjects as well as learning about more specialist areas of law. There is also the option of participating in mooting competitions to further strengthen legal and debating skills. Successful completion of this course qualifies you to progress to one of the two professional courses all UK lawyers are required to take the Legal Practice Course (LPC) for solicitors and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for barristers.

Teaching and learning

Students on the programme are taught in a separate cohort of Graduate Entry LLB students for the core subjects and together with the LLB third year students for electives.

Instruction in the use of legal materials, legal writing, mooting and in legal research (including use of electronic retrieval systems) is an integral part of the course. Students can choose at least three subjects in their second year from an extensive list of interesting elective courses. Tuition fees include textbooks in all of the seven core subjects.

Students have a wide range of extra-curricular activities to engage in such as mooting and client interviewing. The Law School also has an extensive pro bono programme with a Pro Bono Fair at the beginning of the year to inform students of what is available.

Assessment

Assessment is by a combination of written examination and coursework. Students have the opportunity in the second year to write a dissertation on a legal topic of their choice of 15,000 words instead of a taught elective.

Modules

Students are taught by a combination of lectures and tutorials, which in total consist of around 10 hours contact each week in year one, rising to about 12 in year two.

In addition students are expected to engage in private reading for up to 8 hours per week per subject in order to support their learning and prepare for tutorials.

Career prospects

Most students graduating from the programme take the next steps towards qualification as a practising lawyer. In the UK, that entails taking either the Legal Practice Course to qualify as a solicitor or taking the Bar Professional Training Course to become a barrister.

For students who return to Canada to practise, that will require taking the examinations set by the National Committee on Accreditation to obtain a Certificate of Qualification.

Some students will enrol for an LLM programme, normally at an institution in the UK, and in the past students graduating from the programme have taken LLMs at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, KCL and LSE.

Students have also taken LLM programmes in Canada, which will also satisfy the requirements of the NCA. In the past a few students have taken an LLM in the US in order to be eligible then to take the New York Bar examinations. Students who have not wished to practise have entered careers in financial services, banking, with NGOs and in the civil service.

This pathway aims to meet the needs of graduates who wish to work with children and pursue a career in the Early Years but may have an unrelated graduate level qualification and/or limited experience with 0-5 year olds. Candidates are required to be innovative and enthusiastic about improving outcomes for children and also be committed to continuing their academic study.

Early Years Teachers are key to raising the quality of early years provision. They are change agents to improve practice. They lead practice across the Early Years Foundation Stage, support and mentor other practitioners and model the skills and behaviours that safeguard and promote good outcomes for children. Effective early years practice requires enthusiastic and motivated practitioners who recognise the needs of young children, and who can provide a warm, stimulating and purposeful environment. As an Early Years Teacher you will demonstrate you have the vision and commitment to improve outcomes for young children and raise the quality of early years provision.

The course is assessed against the Early Years Teacher National Standards and involves: a series of written ssignments which document clear examples of personal practice and leadership from our everyday work; a concise portfolio of supporting evidence against the Standards; and a setting visit which includes an analytical tour, a scrutiny of the supporting evidence, an observation of candidates practice and an interview with the assessor.

All PGCE pathways cover three main areas: Curriculum Studies, Professional Studies and Enhanced Studies. The Early Childhood Education pathway is designed to complement professional practice and the academic study should be informed by and inform practice.

In Curriculum Studies modules and taught days, you will develop your understanding and knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, pedagogy and resources to support the teaching.

As you progress through your studies and can apply your learning to practical teaching situations, you will be introduced to a wider range of critical perspectives on teaching and learning in the early years. You will be expected to apply that critical reflection to your own teaching.

In Professional Studies modules and taught days, you will learn about broader aspects of education and the early years, its role in society and communities and how education policy and practice has an impact on schools. Key principles and values in early years education will be explored as you develop your own theories of education and reflect critically on others.

In the Enhanced Studies module and taught days, you will have the opportunity to choose a particular aspect of early years education and to study that in greater depth. Your learning in this context will enable you to reflect more strongly and critically on your own emerging identity as an early years teacher.

On completion of the course you will be awarded your Early Years Teacher Status from the National College of Teaching and Leadership. The Early Years Teacher Status is subject to the relevant standards and requirements set out by the Department for Education which are subject to change.

Format

You can expect to receive 50 hours academic direction for each module in a university taught session. The range of learning and teaching strategies is a central component of the design and planning of the PGCE Early Childhood Education pathway on the ITE course.

There is an expectation of 150 hours practice learning and independent study to support your individual and collaborative learning. We will use of a range of ways of engaging you in critical debate and discussion during taught sessions, including talk partners, small group discussion and micro-teaching, while enhancing the experience with practical, creative and active learning.

The Graduate Entry (Mainstream) students on this course are required to be in placement for 120 days. These placements are linked to two credit bearing modules and will contain the assessment process for the recommendation of the award of Early Years Teacher Status. The placements will be in settings for children from birth to five years and will be sourced by the Partnership Team in line with the University placement procedures and processes.

Students studying on the employment pathway (Graduate Entry Employment Based) will be able to use their current employment as their base location in addition to contrasting placements to meet the requirements of the course. On commencing the course they will complete a needs analysis with tutors so that gaps in their knowledge, skills and experience can be highlighted; in this way additional placements will be arranged to ensure these students can cover the breadth of the 0-5 years subject area.

Assessment

Early Childhood Education PGCE pathway students who opt for the PGCE modules (either as a whole or for separate Masters level modules) will be assessed in two main ways – via academic assignments and via assessment of your teaching.

You will submit academic assignments for 20 credits in curriculum, professional and enhanced studies. Each submission will include a written element, but you may also be assessed via presentation or practical performance as relevant to your subject or chosen options. You can achieve up to 60 Masters (Level 7) credits (except in the PGCE Modular pathway which offers up to 40 Masters (Level 7) credits.)

What can I do next?

On successful completion students will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Education with Early Years Teacher Status. Students may have already achieved 60 Masters level credits and may wish to continue studies by applying for the MA Early Childhood Education.
