Course overview

The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) offers a five-year undergraduate programme leading to a medical degree (MBBS) awarded jointly by Imperial and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Targeted primarily at Singaporean students, the innovative programme has been designed by Imperial to produce doctors who will meet Singapore's healthcare needs.

It emphasises the clinical relevance of the basic sciences and early patient interaction from the very beginning of the course, training you to put a patient's individual needs at the centre of all care.

You will gain a thorough understanding of the scientific basis for medicine, as well as broader management and communication skills. Students also benefit from innovative and interactive approaches to education, including extensive use of simulation, team-based learning and e-learning.
