Bachelor of Medicine European BM(EU)

Overview

The five year Bachelor of Medicine European is offered by the University of Southampton in partnership with the Gesundeit Nordhessen in Germany. Further details about this course including admission and programme structure can be found on the Bachelor of Medicine European - BM(EU) webpage. The first two years of the course are completed in the UK with further visits to the UK to attend examinations at certain points during years 3 to 5.

Following the departure of the UK from the EU, all non UK nationals that commence their programme of study from 1 January 2021 are subject to immigration control.  For the periods of study that are completed in the UK, students must obtain a visa appropriate for study.  The visa type required depends on the length and purpose of visit.

On arrival in the UK and to complete enrolment, students must go through a 'right to study' check.  The University, as part of its visa sponsor licence duties, must review and retain copies of student's immigration documents (passports and visas) before they are permitted to fully enrol at the University; this is the 'right to study' check.

For these short visits to the UK, students can apply for a Standard visit visa.

Non-visa nationals, which includes all EU nationals, can apply for a Standard visit visa at the UK border at no cost.  However, certain documents must be prepared in advance as they may be requested by the Border Control Officer.  Please refer to the Home Office (UKVI) webpage for further details on the Standard visit visa (link below).

Please note that the Standard visit visa cannot be used for frequent successive visits and that only one will be granted in any 12 month period.
