Notice Board
Applications in the 2016 UCAS cycle

March 2016

Final decisions have been communicated to all on-time applicants.

  • Unsuccessful applicants will find a brief statement of feedback on UCAS Track. In some instances, the feedback will give one or more specific reasons for the application being unsuccessful - for example if the qualifications offered did not meet our entry requirements. In many cases, however, the feedback is more general. This indicates that the overall application was less competitive than others that we received. Unfortunately we are not able to give a more detailed feedback to unsuccessful applicants who did not attend an interview.
  • If you attended an interview with us and were then unsuccessful, you will have received instructions on how you may request bespoke feedback on your interview performance. Please follow those instructions if you would like to request feedback so that we can add you to the queue. Please be aware that we will stop accepting requests for feedback at the end of May, in order to draw the process to a close.
  • Offer-holders should note that on the day that they received their offer (which should be displayed on both UCAS Track and the UCL Applicant Portal), they should also have received an email from the Medical Admissions Team, providing detailed information on how to fulfil the non-academic offer conditions, as well as the necessary forms. A few days later, a hard copy offer letter accompanied by a booklet entitled "The UCL Offer" should have arrived by post. We recommend that offer holders read through all of the information that has be sent to them by post and electronically, particularly noting the relevant deadline dates, and retain all of this information for reference.
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 one of the UCL Open Days or to sign up for a student-guided campus tour

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

If you have specific questions about applying for Medicine, the majority should be answered on this website. You can also email us with any particular queries.

You can attend a range of public events at UCL. Find information about these via the Visit UCL website.

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. 

University of London Information Days

Each September the University of London holds an Information Day and UCL participates. The event is held very close to the UCL campus and provides 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 here.

Work experience We are often asked about the type of work experience that we expect students to undertake in preparation to apply. We would recommend that prospective students read the work experience guide on the Medical Schools Council website here
