Bodies awarding UK medical degrees

We decide which organisations can award UK primary medical qualifications. In most cases, a medical school is part of a single university which gives degrees to medical graduates. In some cases, universities come together to run a single medical school. These combinations of universities form a single body for the purposes of holding examinations for and awarding primary medical qualifications.

We also carry out quality assurance of bodies which want approval to issue a medical degree, or to start a new programme.
