Study Medicine at Ulster University

In response to the medical workforce shortage in Northern Ireland, Ulster University has established a new School of Medicine that will focus on providing much-needed additional doctors in Northern Ireland through its MBBS programme.

As Northern Ireland's Civic University, we have served the health needs of our communities for 47 years.  The School of Medicine at Magee will build on Ulster University's excellent reputation in Health Sciences. The School will develop a new generation of doctors for the 21st century who understand the needs of our communities and can deliver the care required.  We look forward to welcoming our first cohort of MBBS students in August 2021.
