MBBS Admissions Information

This notice board is updated regularly with new information so please check here from time to time if you have applied for medicine or are considering applying in the future.

Notice Board
Applications for 2015 entry

The deadline for applications to study Medicine at UCL in 2015 has now passed. No late applications will be considered under any circumstances.

All on-time applicants will be assessed according to our published criteria. Those selected for interview will be contacted by email. We recommend that all applicants check their email accounts regularly and ensure that UCAS has an accurate record of their contact details.

Offer-holders Applicants who receive an offer will see an update on UCAS Track as well as on the UCL Applicant Portal. A letter will be sent out by post, along with a booklet of information. In addition, an email will be sent, providing further instructions regarding the non-academic offer conditions.

Please could offer-holders let us know if their email or letter do not arrive within two weeks of seeing an update on UCAS Track. 
BMAT scores The average BMAT scores for UCL's Medicine applicants this year are: 4.7, 4.7, 3.2 A. 

We ask that applicants (and their parents and teachers) please refrain from telephoning or emailing to ask about BMAT scores - the scores are not the only criteria that we assess and it is therefore not possible to say whether or not a candidate will be successful just from the scores alone. Answering such queries occupies time that could more usefully spent on assessing applications and communicating decisions to applicants. Please note that we do not use cut-off scores. As soon as a decision is made on an application, the applicant will be informed.
Visiting UCL Medical School

The teaching for medical students takes place at a variety of campus locations and that there is no specific single building to visit. It is therefore not possible to offer individual department visits for Medicine. 

Visiting UCL in person

Prospective students who are interested in applying to UCL and would like to visit the main campus before making an application are advised to first consider attending the UCL Open Day or to sign up for a student-guided campus tour

Campus tours are organised by the Access team. On some dates a general UCL tour is offered. On other dates a subject-specific Q&A session may be included (these are usually only available during the summer. Details of availability for both can be found here

If no guided tours are available on dates that you find convenient, it is possible to undertake the self-guided tour on any weekday. 

You may also be interested in downloading the free UCL Audio Tour app. The app can be accessed through the iTunes App Store or from Google Play. You can then incorporate this into your self-guided visit.

If you have specific questions about applying for Medicine, the majority should be answered on this website. However if if you would like to speak to an Admissions Officer in person while on campus, please email us in advance regarding your visit date and we will be able to let you know if one of us will be available.

Resources you can use from home

For those unable to visit in person, virtual tours of the Bloomsbury campus and of student accommodation are also available. 

In addition, you may wish to use the 'armchair' mode of the Audio Tour app. If you don't have a smartphone, you can still enjoy the Audio Tour using the map on the website.

University of London Information Days

Each September the University of London hold two Information Days and UCL participates in both of these. These events are held very close to the UCL campus and provide a final opportunity for prospective students to visit and take a student-led tour of UCL's facilities prior to the October application deadline. If you are interested in applying but have not managed to visit us before September, you may wish to find out more about these events here.
