MBBS Transfers (Oxbridge)

Medical students at Oxford and Cambridge may apply for direct entry to Year 4 of the MBBS programme through the MOCAG admissions scheme (Metropolitan Oxford and Cambridge Admissions Group). UCL offers approximately 55 places each year.

Information and application forms may be obtained from individual tutors at the Cambridge colleges and from the Oxford Medical School, John Radcliffe Hospital for the Oxford colleges. 

The closing date for the receipt of applications is January 4th of the year of proposed entry. Applications for deferred entry are considered in exceptional circumstances and on a case-by-case basis.

UCL will no longer be having open days, however we will be attending the Cambridge Forum where there will be some short presentations on the MB BS and MB PhD programmes and also on the student experience at UCL, with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If you are unable to attend the Cambridge forum and have any questions please contact Stephanie Woods.

Please see the UCL website for information about accommodation and fees.  Oxbridge transfers are admitted as continuing students rather than new entrants and so the same fee status and arrangements apply as for the undergraduate medical study undertaken at Oxbridge.  Please contact fees@ucl.ac.uk if you wish further clarification, making clear that your query relates to a transfer from Oxford or Cambridge into Year 4 of the MBBS programme at UCL.

For course information please see the MBBS Overview

MBBS Transfers (Other Medical Schools)

The Medical School considers requests from students at other UK Medical Schools to transfer directly into Year 4 where there  are exceptional reasons for requesting a transfer and where the student has permission from their own School to apply as to transfer.

To be eligible to transfer, applicants must have completed 2 years of an equivalent medical programme  and an intercalated BSc, or 2 years of an equivalent course as a graduate entrant, and must be eligible to continue at their own Medical School.  Prospective applicants should submit: a statement setting out their reasons for seeking to transfer, a letter from their Medical School confirming that they have permission to apply, a full academic transcript, and a summary of the curriculum followed in their first 2 years of study.   Applicants will be required to attend an interview and, if offered a place, will be asked to provide evidence of DBS and OH records. 

Applications should be submitted to s.woods@ucl.ac.uk by 4th January each year and interviews will normally be held in late January/early February.
