After submitting your thesis in the last year of PhD study, you would then re-enter the MBBS programme in Year 4 and complete the remaining years up to Year 6. In a nutshell, this pathway involves two years of MBBS, one year of MRes[Med], three years of PhD, and three more years of MBBS, enabling you to earn the two degrees in nine years.
