Application Timeline


Making an application to study medicine can be daunting. This section aims to make the process easy to understand. It lays out the initial parts of an application in the order that you need to consider them, taking you from qualifications while at school or college to writing a personal statement.

The second part of the application stage will require attending interviews at a medical school for shortlisted candidates. More information can be found on the interviews section.

Applications to study medicine are handled through UCAS. Applicants are able to apply to up to four medical courses. If you are in college or sixth-form then you should be guided through the process by teachers.

There is a very high number of applications to medicine each year and the process takes longer than for most other courses. For this reason, applications must be made just under one year in advance. The deadline is always 15 October, to begin the course in September of the following year.
