Admission to programs

Test takers applying for the graduate-entry programs must fulfil the following criteria:

  1. have, or be predicted to receive, at least an upper second class honours degree in any discipline with the exception of Nottingham University (lower second class honours degree).
  2. be classed as a home student, which includes nationals from the UK and the Republic of Ireland. At present International Students are not accepted, with the exception of the A100 program at the University of Liverpool, the A101 programme at Swansea University Medical School, the A101 programme at the University of Nottingham and the A101 at the Ulster University. Please refer to these individual institutions’ websites for information on international eligibility.

Graduate applicants are selected on the basis of three criteria:

  • Undergraduate Honours Degree
  • GAMSAT
  • Interview

The schools may also apply additional criteria.

Non-school leaver applicants are selected into the Plymouth medical and dental, and Exeter medical programs on the basis of performance in GAMSAT and in an interview.

Performance in GAMSAT constitutes the only necessary information on an applicant’s aptitude for the purpose of entry to medicine or dentistry at University of Plymouth and entry to medicine at the University of Exeter. Applicants who reach the threshold level in GAMSAT are invited to interview for assessment of non-academic attributes. Neither performance in a prior degree nor performance at secondary school will be considered.

Applicants to the University of Surrey who pass preliminary shortlisting and reach the threshold level in GAMSAT are invited to interview. All applicants invited to interview must take part in a Multiple Mini Interview cycle that lasts under one hour.

More specific information relating to admission procedures should be obtained by contacting the schools directly and by referring to their websites. Contact details for the universities are given below.
