When is the deadline for applying to Medicine at UK universities?

My daughter wants to study Medicine in the UK. When is the deadline for applying to Medicine at UK universities?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Your daughter must apply for Medicine through UCAS at www.ucas.com

Applications are normally in the period September - 15 October of the year prior to admission.

It is unlikely that there are places available for 2015 entry at this late stage. You could contact a few medical schools to check. It would be advisable to make an application in September 2015 for entry in 2016.

Students applying for Medicine need to take an admissions test - The BMAT or the UKCAT depending on which universities she applies to. This needs to be taken in the year of application. For more information go to:
