If you're considering studying medicine in the UK, you’ll want to check out the Guardian’s newly released subject ranking – which names the University of Cambridge as the best place in the country to hone your medical skills.
In a not entirely unpredictable result, Cambridge came out top of the 35 institutions in the country that offer medical training.
This is based on the success of two courses: MB and BChir (hons) medicine.
Cambridge was also number one in the overall university ranking table, which took into account factors such as entry requirements, student/staff ratio, and the likelihood of a career having begun six months on from graduation.
In second place in the medical school ranking was Oxford, followed by University College London (UCL), the University of Dundee (which is 38th in the table overall), Queen Mary (joint 38th overall) and Keele (42nd overall.)
