Living in Hull and York

An unforgettable experience

When you receive an offer to study, you will be allocated a home campus of either the University of Hull or the University of York, where you will be based for your first two years of study. Wherever you are based, you will benefit from exceptional medical education in a stimulating and supportive learning environment on a vibrant campus.

You will follow exactly the same curriculum and obtain the same level of expertise and skills from academics, clinicians and tutors.

From your third year onwards, you will spend most of your time on clinical placements at hospital sites and GP practices in the Yorkshire region, rotating through the same placement sites as your peers across both campuses. You will be provided with NHS student accommodation.

Living in York

A member of the prestigious Russell Group, the University of York has a history of over 50 years of outstanding academic achievement. You will become a member of one of a number of small, distinct colleges on campus, each with its own unique personality and social calendar.

You’ll find bars, shops, theatres, concert halls and first class sports facilities which include a swimming pool and health centre – and plenty of student societies to get stuck in to.
