Application deadlines, application requirements

I’m an American high school student residing in Saudi Arabia. I’d like to study medicine in the UK but I’m afraid I’ve already missed the deadlines. Are there any large universities that are still open for fall 2018? If so, then what are the requirements?

Thanks in advance

Hi Montaha,

You need to apply through UCAS and to satisfy all entry requirements. So, you may need to take UKCAT or BMAT.

The closing date for Medical School applications is generally 15 October.

You could look out for Clearing vacancies – there are some occasionally – but would have to be quick off the mark.

Otherwise it is probably next year.

I think Buckingham starts in January, so that might still be a possibility. Look at:

Good luck,
