How we are adapting to COVID-19
The pandemic requires curriculum change for all medical schools but we are skilled at that: as an innovative Medicine programme we have always risen to a challenge and are doing so now.
We are optimistic but practical, so are planning for multiple scenarios. We can promise you that you will meet your learning outcomes across the length of your course. In Years 1-2, we expect you to be learning in Cardiff or on placement, with a blend of learning opportunities such as face-to-face and e-Learning. Students will be considered as key workers and Year 3-5 students will continue to be on placement across Wales.
Your safety is paramount and we work closely with Welsh government and the NHS to ensure this. Where risk is unacceptable, we will discuss interruption of studies (a learning break) with you. We also know this situation will change over time, so we're prepared for our plans to change too.

A flexible course
Our MBBCh Medicine programme, known as C21, offers you flexibility and choice, not just in how you apply but in where you plan to study.
Medicine: north Wales (MBBCh)
Depending on which route you choose when applying, C21 allows you the option of being based in north Wales for all or part of your programme, while still graduating with our prestigious Cardiff University MBBCh degree.
See how Bangor University are delivering the C21 north Wales Graduate entry to medicine four year programme (MBBCh) in collaboration with Cardiff University’s School of Medicine.
