Applying to medical school

filling in form


The application deadline for medicine is usually mid-October; it is earlier than the deadline for most other degree courses, and if you miss the deadline there will be no opportunity to apply for a further year. The application process opens in mid-September. Applicants for medicine are given four choices of courses (most other degree applicants can choose up to five courses).

The application is made online on the UCAS website. The UCAS website also gives you a list of universities where you can study medicine; further information and links to the website address of each medical school are included.
