MBBS Admissions

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 and Interviews 2023-24

We look forward to receiving your application! 

UCAS applications for 2024 entry (or deferred entry for 2025) must be received by 18.00 (UK time) on 16th October 2023. We are not able to consider late applications. All applicants also need to apply to sit the Biomedical Admissions Test being held on 18th October 2023. 

We will initially review applications to ensure they meet our minimum academic entry requirements as outlined in our prospectus. Then, following receipt of BMAT scores in November, we will begin inviting candidates to interview. 

Each year, we normally interview between 800-1000 applicants and will send invitations on a rolling basis from December 2023 through to March 2024. When you receive your invitation does not indicate a priority in terms of your application. We do ask that applicants let us know as soon as possible, if they will be unavailable for any of the dates indicated below (for any reason). It is unlikely that we are able to rearrange interview dates once sent. 

Provisional interview dates for home applicants are as follows:

  • 18th and 19th December 2023
  • 3rd, 4th, 8th, 10th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th and 31st  January 2024
  • 12th, 13th, 14th, 26th and 27th February 2024
  • 4th and 5th March 2024

International applicants:

  • 12th, 15th, 16th, 19th, 26th January 2024
  • 2nd February 2024
Work Experience Guidance

We recommend that prospective students read the Medical Schools Council new work experience guidance.

BMAT 2024 cycle

Both the registration deadline and the test date are earlier than in previous years. The 2023 sitting for the 2024 cycle will be the last sitting as the BMAT is being withdrawn from 2024.

  • The final registration deadline is 29 September. No late registrations will be accepted after this date.
  • The test date is 18 October.

Please also note that BMAT will be a pen-and-paper test this year.

Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing have produced a new BMAT preparation guide.  For additional guidance please visit the Cambridge Assessment BMAT website.

After the 2024 cycle, BMAT will no longer be offered. For applicants wishing to apply in October 2024 for 2025 entry and beyond, we will be accepting the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) as our admissions test. Further details regarding application and test dates can be found on the UCAT website

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 by referring to information about the MBBS programme. You can also email us with any particular queries.

If you have any further enquiries in relation to the degree programme itself, then please contact MBBS enquiries

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

UCL Open Days

UCL Opens Days offer a number of activities specific to Medicine and the Medical School including Medicine Admissions Talks and Taster Lectures.  You will also have the opportunity to speak with admissions and academic staff, as well as current medical students.  In addition you can view some of our facilities, including those in the Cruciform Building, and on-campus resources such as libraries and museums.
