Application process

Many applicants find the application forms, selection tests and interviews required for admission to medical school daunting. This section explains how to apply for our Medicine courses and how we assess each part of your application.

We want to admit the best students just as much as you want to go to the best university. Your application and interview will enable you to show us how good you are!

It is also very important that you choose a medical school that is a good fit for your personality and your preferred way of learning. We therefore encourage you to take a good look at our programmes and the way in which we teach before making your UCAS application.

All applications, including for deferred entry, must be submitted through UCAS by the October UCAS application deadline. Please refer to the UCAS website for an exact date. It is not possible for us to consider late applications.

Receipt of applications to the six-year MBChB with Foundation Year (UCAS code A104), the five-year MBChB (A106) and the Graduate Entry (Medicine) (A101) courses will be acknowledged by The University of Manchester's Central Admissions Office.

You should read through these pages carefully before you submit your application. The answers to some of the most frequently asked questions are already available on our FAQs page.
