Historically, all Oxbridge students completed their clinical training at one of the London medical schools. Although they now have their own clinical schools, Imperial accepts students who have completed the first 3 pre-clinical years at Oxford or Cambridge. Oxbridge students join the third year of the undergraduate course. This begins with the 4 week attachment that Imperial students complete in second year, then a 6 week attachment whilst the rest of the year take the BSc foundation course. After this, the rest of the clinical years are the same as the other MBBS/BSc students.
As with the graduate course students, Oxbridge students are exempt from the BSc year.
