Three-year, five-year and six-year degrees
Some of our degree programmes offer direct entry to second year or require an extra year or two of study.
In many of our science and engineering subjects well-qualified applicants may apply for direct entry to Year 2, making it possible to graduate with a BSc after three years of study.
Entry to second year is also available for many of our art and design programmes.
Our Veterinary Medicine BVM&S degree and our MA Fine Art degree take five years.
In science and engineering we offer five-year MChem, MChemPhys, MEarthSci, MEng, MInf, MMath and MPhys degrees. Well-qualified applicants may opt for direct entry into Year 2 of these programmes.
These masters degrees entail in-depth study often with a research focus, but they are undergraduate degrees and are not equivalent to a postgraduate masters.
Our Medicine MBChB degree is a six-year programme.
