Biomedical Sciences Transfer

Each year, the Medical School considers applications to transfer to Year 1 of the MBBS degree programme from students registered on Stage 1 of one of the Medical Faculty's undergraduate Bioscience degree programmes.

Application Guidance


There are up to 7 places available each year and there is always a great deal of competition. Candidates must meet the requirements for transfer as noted in the Biomedical Sciences Transfer Information document. 

Students must be registered at Newcastle University, at the Faculty of Medical Sciences, for one of the Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences degree programmes.

Only one application will be considered. If you wish to apply to be considered through the internal transfer route, we would be unable to consider a UCAS application in the same admission cycle.


Students on any of the degree programmes listed below are not eligible for this transfer scheme:

  • BSc Food and Human Nutrition
  • BSc Food and Human Nutrition with Placement
  • BSc Nutrition with Food Marketing
  • BSc Nutrition with Food Marketing with Placement
  • BSc Psychology and Nutrition
