Yes, there are several scholarships available for undergraduate students who wish to pursue an MBChB degree. These scholarships provide financial assistance to cover tuition fees, living expenses and other costs associated with the program.
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons offers an MBChB scholarship that covers up to £50,000 in tuition fees as well as support for books and other materials required for the course. Other organizations offer similar options such as the British Medical Association’s John Todd Scholarship that covers up to £22,000 worth of tuition fees.
There are also a number of universities offering specific MBChB scholarships such as Edinburgh University’s Medical School International Bursary which awards funded places each year to international students studying medicine at their medical school or University College London’s Medicine Scholarship which offers 117 full fee waivers plus a bursary towards upfront costs. All medical schools listed by the General Medical Council have eligibility criteria on their websites detailing what funding opportunities they offer and how you can apply for them.
Finally, it is also worth investigating university-wide competitive scholarship schemes open across all degree programmes offered by UK universities – these could be suitable if eligible applicants wish to study in more than one area whilst completing their MBChB qualification or wish gain additional qualifications during their studies such as research degrees alongside clinical practice placements with external organisations like NHS Trusts or Clinical Research Networks (CRN). As these tend to be hugely oversubscribed it pays off doing some thorough research into application requirements before applying so you have everything ready when submission deadlines arise!
