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.

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.
