Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) is a medical school which was formed as a partnership of the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex, which means that each student is a member of both universities. The school is fully committed to the principles of Tomorrow’s Doctors (an initiative by the General Medical Council, outlining the role of practitioners in the UK). BSMS works closely together with NHS organisations throughout the South East region. Ever since its foundation in 2003, the school has trained more than 1 000 new doctors that are now in employment in the UK. Due to its partnerships, students are awarded joint BMBS degrees of both universities. The university accepts about 150 undergraduate students per year. Due to its popularity, BMBS has one of the highest application rate of medical schools in the UK. Students spend the first two years of their studies on the universities’ Falmer campus. The third year focuses on hands-on training in teaching hospitals and community settings in Brighton and surroundings. The school has purpose-built teaching facilities in all areas. Graduates of BMBS are valued because of their knowledge, gained through the high-level training (including clinical practice and research) provided by the university.
The Brighton and Sussex medical school is an amazing university. Each module has its own module leader, but the lecturers are not the same each week. Professions from the field will come in to teach you about their area of expertise, so you make amazing contacts too! And all of the lecturers, employees and guests are always open to questions and emails. All lecturers are very approachable and supportive. The only negative I have is that the lecturers have been online, even with the removal of restrictions. However, it does seem that later this year we will start returning to face to face lectures.View more
