Every student applying to a UK medical school must submit their application through UCAS. From mid-September, you can apply to UK universities online. You can use the UCAS service from anywhere in the world: find out more information at www.ucas.com.
Your application does not have to be completed in one session; you can return to it later and change or add information before you submit it. However, you will need to mark every section of the form as complete before you can send your application to UCAS. The application deadline for Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and most Dentistry courses is 15th October of the year.
