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
Pending Interview Outcomes

To those who have attended interviews and are awaiting outcomes.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for the outcome of your interview. We appreciate that this is a stressful time and we apologise for the delay.

As the final MMIs needed to be postponed due to strikes, there has been a short delay in sending out our offers. These are now being processed by the team and so please be sure to keep an eye on UCL Portico and via UCAS Track. Please do be aware that it does take time to send out each individual outcome – we are not able to process them all at once and so we anticipate that we will continue to send outcomes out on a rolling basis through April.  All candidates will receive a decision by the end of April.

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 The 2023 sitting for the 2024 cycle will be the last sitting as the BMAT is being withdrawn from 2024.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 the BMAT will no longer be offered. We will update this Notice Board once a decision has been reached about UCL's excepted entrance test for the 2025 cycle.

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.
