University of Glasgow

The application of molecular genetics in the fields of medicine and healthcare has been one of the major growth areas of the last decade. It provides new insights into the most fundamental aspects of growth, development, disease and ageing. Already we are seeing tangible rewards through the development of improved diagnostic techniques and novel therapies. Despite the achievements, the advances to date represent only the tip of the iceberg. Not only should medical students be aware of the revolution that is taking place, in the future some are likely to play a significant personal role through research and clinical practice. The intercalated degree course in Genetics provides you with a firm grounding and a critical understanding of likely future developments.

Entry requirements

Applications from external medical and dental students are welcome. Please be aware that we expect admission through this route to be extremely competitive. Applications will be reviewed on their own merits and entrants would be expected to be of a similar standard to those intercalating from within Glasgow. Please note that places on specific specialist courses are limited and allocated on performance to date, therefore even if admission to the programme is successful you may not necessarily be guaranteed a place on your course of choice.

Closing date

The deadline for applications for entry in September 2023 is Tuesday 7th March 2023.
