University of Exeter Medical School


From undergraduate programmes, through postgraduate taught and research programmes to continuing professional development opportunities, we are committed to lifelong learning, underpinned by research-led teaching. 


We offer undergraduate programmes that develop the science and healthcare leaders of the future, who are socially accountable and committed to the service of patients and the public.  

Our students have numerous opportunities to gain real-world experience, whether it is part of a professional training year placement on our Medical Sciences, Neuroscience or Exercise and Sport Sciences programmes, or as part of our Medicine programme, where students gain clinical placement experience from the first few weeks of the course.  

Postgraduate taught

We invite you to join a community of postgraduate students from diverse backgrounds: scientists, researchers, educators, practitioners. Together we provide a supportive environment in which you can develop advanced knowledge and skills that will enable you to make a positive contribution to medicine and health and further develop your career. 
We offer a range of postgraduate programmes in Healthcare and Medicine at our Exeter (St Luke’s) and Cornwall campuses, with some online options, as well as Sport and Health Sciences programmes at our Exeter (St Luke’s) campus. 

Postgraduate research

We offer a wide range of academic and clinical expertise ranging from the molecular and genetic to experts in applied healthcare and methodological areas of research. As a research student you will join a thriving research community and benefit from dedicated and knowledgeable supervision and access to outstanding facilities. 

We have a range of postgraduate research programmes in Healthcare and Medicine based at our Exeter (Streatham and St Luke’s) and Cornwall campuses, as well as programmes at our Exeter (St Luke’s) campus.
