Applications to UK medical schools must be submitted by 15 October of the year in which you will be sitting your final exams. This is the cut-off date for submitting a correctly filled in application form as well as, in many cases, having already passed the BMAT or UCAT entrance exam.
Since the application process for studying medicine in the UK is fiercely competitive, we ensure that all our applicants are equipped with a Plan B: and submit applications to fields of study which are related to medicine, a strategy which facilitates taking advantage of the Graduate Entry Scheme for Medicine once they have gained their first degree – for example Medical Sciences or Biomedical Sciences.
