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 in the 2016 UCAS cycle

We will assess and make a final decision on all applications by the end of March at the latest. 

For information, the average BMAT scores for candidates who applied to UCL this year: 

Section 1: 4.7

Section 2: 4.6

Section 3: 3.0 A

Please note that these scores do not represent a cut-off score for interview. We assess all aspects of applications - BMAT scores are just one aspect. High BMAT scores will strengthen an application but are not a guarantee of success.

We request that applicants and their parents or other representatives please refrain from emailing or telephoning to discuss BMAT scores to ask for status updates on applications - until a decision is made and communicated to the applicant, the application is still pending and there is no information that we can give out. Answering general queries takes up time that we could better spend on assessment and decision-making, so we do ask for your patience. 

Applicants who are selected for interview will be contacted by email. We try to give at least two weeks of notice, often more. Applicants will be contacted regarding interviews on a rolling basis between now and mid-March. Please could applicants therefore ensure that they check their email accounts frequently and ensure that messages from their UCAS choices do not end up in junk/spam folders.

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. 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.

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
