How to apply

Medicine interviews and offers

Each year we receive many applications for every place available and it takes a long time to study these applications carefully. You should not be concerned if you do not hear a final decision until some months after you have submitted your UCAS form.

Applicants should enter details of all their qualifications on the relevant section of the UCAS form. Incomplete applications (including a missing reference) will not be considered. A decision will be based solely on the UCAS application and information provided separately or after the deadline will not be considered.

The deadline for UCAS applications to study Medicine and Surgery is 15 October.

Please note the following codes below as you will need them when you apply:

University of Birmingham code: B32
MBChB code: A100

All applicants applying for the five-year MBChB course or the four-year MBChB Graduate Entry course must sit the UCAT test in their year of application. Candidates living in a country where the test is not offered will normally be expected to travel to take the test. Please visit the UCAT website for information about the test, including important dates and information about bursaries available. You can also access practice tests.
