Applying to Medical Courses
The UCAS application deadline for all medical courses is October 15th. Students applying to study medicine in the UK may apply to a maximum of four courses in Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine or Veterinary Science; their fifth application must be to an alternate course choice. In addition to the application, sitting for the BMAT (BioMedical Admissions Test) or UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude Test) is often an additional application requirement. The BMAT is a 2-hour, pen-and-paper test to assess the skills and knowledge that applicants to Medicine and Veterinary courses are expected to have already.
