Sam Wickham, Widening Participation, Outreach and Recruitment Manager, Brighton Sussex Medical School (BSMS)
BSMS combine proven, traditional methods with the latest innovations in teaching and research. There are few medical schools quite like BSMS who believe in an integrated, practical approach to studying Medicine, with early patient contact in GP surgeries and hospitals. Anatomy is taught by full cadaveric dissection, allowing pupils to turn theory into reality. General practice is at the heart of the curriculum, and research-active tutors weave the latest insights into everything pupils learn. BSMS set high standards but have a friendly approach. They are small enough for pupils to know everyone on their course and each tutor by name. Their five-year medical degree is jointly awarded by the Universities of Sussex and Brighton.
